All of us lucky enough to share life with Martha know one word that sums up her life: Family.
Martha's early life was shared with parents, Guy and Evon Smith and her little brother, Gene. Martha expanded her circle with her Masonic family through service in Jobies, and eventually Eastern Star. Martha started a new branch in her tree when she stole the heart of a 9 year old boy name Duane. In time they married and grew their family with children Sheri and Jeremy. Martha's work family grew through 30 years of service with Blue Cross. In later years, her family grew again to include many members of her second home community in Cascade, Idaho.
All of us, from any of these families, know she put everyone else's needs before her own, always making sure to the best of her abilities that everyone’s needs were met. An easy child to raise, a wonderful wife, mother, and grandma; deeply loved and appreciated by all of her families. Always helpful, always hopeful that her efforts would make someone's life better.
Martha is deeply missed by friends and family with each day a little more difficult without her here to ease our journey.
