Martha was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses’ in 1961 and her family is a large spiritual one!  As an ordained minister, teaching others from the bible about Jehovah God and his wonderful promises for the future (Rev. 21:3-5) brought Martha great happiness.  She moved throughout the years to volunteer in approximately 17 different congregations and to be close to her family.  The longest she lived in one place was from 1980–2006 in Keokuk Iowa.  In 2006 she came to Aurora, Missouri, with her son Rocki and his wife Linda where Martha has since resided and been a member of the Aurora congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
