Martha passed away peacefully at the age of 89, in Tucson, Arizona on June 30th, 2021. She grew up in Adrian, Michigan and later in life called Ann Arbor home. Always a big fan of the University of Michigan, she would make a point to take family and friends to "The Big House" for a football game. One of her absolute favorite places was The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, MI.

Martha was known as a "tough lady" in her professional life. She had a long and distinguished career in economics that included Commissioner of the Financial Institutions Bureau for the State of Michigan, Professor of Finance at Central Michigan University, John M. Olin, Distinguished Fellow at the University of Arizona and various directorships. Her most notable position was the appointment as a Governor of the Federal Reserve by President Ronald Regan.

She was preceded in death by her brother, Courtland and nephew, Bradford. She is survived by her sister, Susan; sister-in-law, Catherine; niece, Janice Meyer (Bill); niece, Christine Kharrazi (Navid); great-nephew, Alec and great-niece, Madeline.

A graveside service will be held at Oakwood Cemetery in Adrian, MI for family and close friends.

Oh My I have missed seeing Martha and Sue in the past few years. What a fun and interesting time we had with Martha and Sue. Martha was always so generous too at those dinners at the Arizona Inn. She will never be forgotten. A brilliant lady has left this physical earth but her generosity and legacy will live on forever.

My condolences to Martha´s family, especially Susan. I got to know both ladies as their dental hygienist and enjoyed the outside the dental office. Martha´s zest for life was remarkable. We enjoyed our love of classic cars-the Lyon. I always learned something from Martha. Rest In Peace. I also would like to reach out to Susan.

So sorry to hear of Martha´s passing. I was very fond of her and enjoyed some nice times together in Ann Arbor. My Grandmother Beatrice Clement loved having Martha and Susan for summer visits at the farm with her. Would love to have details of the burial in Adrian.
