Martha Ellen (Marty) Robertson Obituary
MARTHA (MARTY) ELLEN ROBERTSON Age 86, passed away Nov. 8, 2012 at the Hemet Valley Medical Center in CA as a result of cardiorespiratory arrest. Martha was born to Harry Leonard and Sarah Marguerite Thompson on Sept. 13, 1926 in Kansas City, KS where she lived most of her early life. She was the fifth of seven children, and the last surviving member of her family. Martha married Floyd Moore in 1942 and had one son, Ronald. That marriage originally brought her to California, but ended in divorce. In 1946, she married Keith Robertson in Kansas City. From that marriage, Martha had three children, Keith Ray, Jr., Diana Lynn, and Kenneth Eugene. The family moved to Martha's beloved California in 1958 where she lived for the remainder of her life. While rearing her four children, Martha worked continuously until her retirement in 1988, first at the American Can Co., then Cameo, Inc., and finally at Ametek Corp. until retiring. She always committed to do her best at anything she attempted. The loves of Martha's life were her family, especially her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and her dogs. Martha was preceded in death by sister Betty, brothers, Harry, Donald, Bernard, Riley, and Bennie and her grandson Donald who died in Somalia, proudly serving his country in the U.S. Army. Martha is also survived by her grandchildren: Donna (Rick); Douglas (Tiffany) and Heather (Steven), Kirby, Kimberly (Brian), Kari (Chris), Kenny Jr. (Becky); 14 great-grandchildren.
