Martha found much joy looking at her favorite mountain, Pikes Peak, while sitting on the back deck, dressed in her festive tea hats, making Facebook videos of her NCAA football predictions, where one weeks she was nine out of ten. Her favorite videos were telling her followers to give God the only thing that they had to offer, their TIME, and that the RAPTURE is one of the three greatest lies, according to the Matthew 13:24 – 30 and 36 – 40. Martha said that she was praying for death before returning to Colorado Springs in February of 2018 and that being back in the Springs brought life back to her. She will always be remembered for her singing and ringing debut in Granny Fanny’s “Ring my Bell”. She is greatly missed by many.
