Martha Alice Swanson Lang, age 86, died peacefully on Sunday morning, June 15, 2014, at the Miriam Boyd Parlin Hospice Residence. Martha was born in Cambridge on May 15, 1928, but spent most of her life in Natick surrounded by her large and loving family, enjoying meeting with her children daily for coffee, doting on her pet cats and bunnies, and taking family trips to Cape Cod. She loved her home, which she decorated with tributes to her Swedish heritage. She delighted in learning about her ancestral history and was able to visit with her extended family in Sweden three times over the recent years.
