SEVERYN, Martha (LeFevre) passed away on September 6, 2017 at the age of 93. Born and raised in Akron, Ohio, she was a graduate of Akron U and worked there as a librarian. She and her husband "Hank" Severyn (also passed away) married in 1950 and moved to Tucson in 1952. Martha continued to work as a librarian at the U of A and then took on her most challenging job, raising their three children, Chris, Carol and Eric. She was always the smartest person in the room; classy, pragmatic, optimistic and immune to worry. She inspired everyone she met and will be remembered for her unique sense of humor and contagious laugh. You did a great job Mom and we miss you so much, now and always. Martha loved her cats so in lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Hermitage No Kill Cat Shelter.
