Over the years that I knew Martha, her extended family grew enormously to include friends, colleagues, homesick students, and others who were drawn to her kindness, smile, or --- passion for the Pittsburgh Steelers! She cared more about the problems of others than her own and was always ready to help out whenever possible, traits that have become rarer these days. She loved angel figurines. Well, she was an angel herself, and now she has gone home. You will be greatly missed, dear friend.
