Martha Alice Stilley-Durossette
Martha Alice (Stilley) Durossette, 61, of Fort Smith, Arkansas went the way of all the earth on Friday, July 23, 2021 in Fort Smith. Martha was a Registered Nurse but dabbled in many trades and occupations. She loved plants, chickens, (Seramas anyone?), piano playing, surprises, fixing things you didn't think she could or even should fix, and travel. She marched to the beat of a different drum. Many things could be said of Martha, but "ordinary and mainstream" isn't amongst them. Suspicion has it that someone pronounced upon her the old Chinese curse "may you live an interesting life." She was preceded in death by her father Ed Stilley. She is survived three sons: Dennis Guzman of Fort Smith, George Guzman of Georgia, and Arthur Guzman, Jr. of Fort Smith; four siblings: Stephen Stilley of Cedarville, AR, Oscar Stilley of Cedarville, Nathan Stilley (Lovina) of Monterey, TN, and Mary Jane Cover of Huntsville, AR; mother Eliza Stilley of Huntsville; and too many aunts, uncles, cousins, and other family members to mention. Visitation will be held from 6:00-8:00 PM on Tuesday July 27, 2021 at Lewis Funeral Chapel 4817 Kelley Hwy in Fort Smith. Graveside service and interment will be at 10:00 AM Wednesday July 28, 2021 at Salem Cemetery in Cedarville, AR. Pallbearers Josh Stilley, Nathaniel Stilley, Jonathan Cover, Joel Cover, Dennis Guzman and George Guzman. Honorary pallbearers will be Clyde Stilley and Arthur Guzman, Jr.
