West Plains, MO - Memorial Services for Martha Jane Anderson will be 2:00 pm on Saturday, February, 3, 2018 at Robertson-Drago Funeral Home in West Plains, Missouri with a viewing before the service at 1:00 pm.

Martha Jane Anderson, devoted wife of Robert Anderson, beloved mother of Rodney Anderson and Janette Atkinson, and cherished Grammy of Luke, Alexis, Averi, and Emma Atkinson, went home to be with her dear Savior on January 29th, 2018. Martha was 72 years old.

Born to the late Herbert C. Montgomery and the late Eva Montgomery on March 9, 1945, Martha grew up in West Plains. She graduated from West Plains High School. She went on to earn her bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Southwest State University where she was awarded the honors of cum laude and Kappa Delta Pi.

After college, Martha married Robert L. Anderson on June 29th, 1968 in West Plains.

For 20 years, Martha lived in Asheville, NC, where she was an active part of her community. Martha was a beloved substitute teacher, a school librarian, a secretary, president of the PTA, and her favorite roles of all, a homemaker, wife, and mother. She served as a Sunday school teacher, song leader, pianist and leader in youth ministry and was delighted to serve as the sectional representative of the Missionette's program. Martha was active in her children's school, often volunteering to be the room mom, serving on the PTA, and serving as a chaperone on Odyssey of the Mind trips, which she thoroughly enjoyed.

Martha was a true example of being Jesus' hands and feet to everyone that she met. A very kind and giving person, she was always ready to help others. She was known for her warm smile and was someone everyone loved to be around.

Martha is survived by her husband, Robert L. Anderson, two children, Rodney Anderson and wife Brooke Anderson of Joshua Tree, CA, and Janette Atkinson and husband Seth Atkinson and grandchildren Luke Atkinson, Alexis Atkinson, Averi Atkinson, and Emma Atkinson of Blountville, TN, one brother Charles Montgomery and wife Jo Beth Montgomery of West Plains, and many special nieces and nephews.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of the Robertson-Drago Funeral Home.
