She received her BA in Art History and English from the University of California at Davis in 1965 and continued at UC Davis to earn her teaching certificate the next year. She taught art, English and English as a second language at Lodi High School until her retirement in 2005.
In addition to her love of teaching, Marta enjoyed pottery, painting and writing and actively pursued her "small art" painting and writing until shortly before her death.

She also is survived by her stepson William Myska, his wife Cheryl and their children, Elizabeth and Samantha Roberts of Terre Haute, Indiana, her stepson Ronald Myska and his wife Michelle and their children, Chase, Shelby, Lauren, and Ian, of Fairfield, CA, and by her sister Lois G.

Marta has been a grace in my life for the past 20 years. She was honest and straight forward, witty and true, and loved to read and share her books with friends. She stopped by to say goodbye just days before she passed away. She is one of my hero's and truly a gift from God! My sincere condolences to her family.

Mrs. Myska was my art teacher my sophmore and junior years at Lodi High. She was the one teacher, being a new student that year to Lodi High, to really make me feel comfortable. RIP

"Miss Garner" was one of my favorite teachers Freshman and Sophomore years when I had her for Art I and Art II. She had a sunny disposition and was a wonderful teacher. My sympathy to you.

Margo, we are sorry that your Mom has passed away. Thank you for stopping by my work to update me on her health conditions. We had lots of fun at the Christmas parties. We looked forward to the the spaghetti dinner on New Year's Eve, then playing Uno and that Tower game I was horrible at. We will miss Marta's witty remarks and her artwork. She is now at peace and will be missed. Love to you and your family.
