     This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Martha Temple, 67, born on May 15, 1941 and passed away on February 28, 2009. No words and completely describe how much we miss mom. She was a women of God..she had great strenght and grace. She put others before herself even at the end she comforted her children and grandchildren.

     Mom lived in Marion most of her life, first coming to the area with dad. She was an active member of The First Church of Nazarene. She raised her children and ran a daycare center for many years. She used to get the kids that no one else wanted to take in..she had such a big heart and kids felt loved when they came to our home.

     Mom loved raising her flowers and putting in a garden every year. She loved to sing and had a beautiful voice. Mom loved working on her crafts and at one point decorated gorgeous cakes.

    Mom was a fabulous cook and always had room for one more at her table. If mom seen her neighbors in need she tried her best to help them as much as possible.  

    Mom always supported and encouraged us kids and grandkids to do  our best no matter what we were doing. At times she was the biggest cheerleader we had and the only cheerleader many times. We knew when we come home to visit mom she'd greet us with a smile. She looked forward to holidays, the more of us home the better, even when it was so crowed that we could barely move around. She loved to share stories about each of us and at times shocked us with confesses of her orneriness.

    Mom was married 4 times, but the one true love of her life was Fred  

Though we feel she was taken to soon from us, mom struggled with health issues for years and was in a lot of pain. She often put on a smile for everyone to see  and tried to hide the fact she was in horrible pain.
