Martha M. VanSickle

Martha Magdalene Van Sickle

The pearl is nature's most impeccable gem. Elegance with modesty - unassuming beauty - lustrous natural grace - smooth to the touch - humble of beginnings, but pure of heart and timeless - forever.

Martha, Mom - everything about you, your life and how you lived - was the pearl of a lifetime.

God blessed us with Martha Magdalene Foernzler on June 10, 1927.

God lifted Martha Magdalene Van Sickle to heaven on December 14, 2013.

Our beloved Martha - Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, Friend - who was taken into God's arms this day - will always be remembered for her unselfish giving, love and devotion to those around her.

Our lives are forever blessed by your presence in them and the shining example of how beautifully and lovingly you lived yours. You will dwell in our hearts always.

Martha smiles upon her husband of 65 years, Sam G. Van Sickle of Tequesta, FL; her three sons, Mark L. Van Sickle, Stuart, FL, D. Scott Van Sickle, Atlanta, GA and Craig W. Van Sickle, La Canada, CA (wife Wendy Ferren Van Sickle); brothers and sisters, Claire, Sonja and Bill; and five grandchildren, Jessica, Ryan, Aridae, Samantha and Wills.

A lifetime of those she touched and loved with the generous spirit of her heart.

A celebration of Martha's life will be held at the Jupiter First Church, 1475 Indian Creek Parkway, Jupiter FL., on January 17th 2014 at 2 pm.

In lieu of flowers, donations welcome to Treasure Coast Hospice; (1-772-403-4500)
