We grew up in the neighborhood with the Brown family in the 1960’s. Mrs. Brown probably felt as if she had twice as many kids in her family, as the Herbert kids were constantly in her home. Our Mom knew that if we weren’t home , that we were at the Brown family home playing with Scott, Rick, Mark, and Tony. Our fondest childhood memories revolve around times spent in the welcoming home of Mrs. Brown. Her laugh and smiles were heartwarming and heartfelt, and her “Mom” hugs were comforting and reassuring. Mrs. Brown will forever hold a special place in our hearts. Sincere condolences to the Brown family from the Herbert family - Mrs. Donna Herbert, Debbie, Darrell, Darlene, Dennis, and Dale

I'm so sorry for your family's loss. I only got the chance to meet Martha a handful of times but each time she was so friendly and funny. Through the stories I've heard from her family, she seemed like a real firecracker and a great person. My family and I are sending love and our thoughts are with you.
