She considered her friends at church her second family. For many years, Martha was active in the Catholic War Veteran’s Ladies Auxiliary including holding the role of President of the local group. Martha was a strong and loving caregiver for family members and friends, making sure all their needs were met before her own.

The family wishes to thank John, Mary Anne and Sam Alioto for their devoted caring love and support of Martha over the years, our angels that allowed David and Lori to sleep at night.
