Martha Bonnette Birt, of North Charleston, loving wife of Marion Briggs Birt for over 70 years, entered into eternal rest July 17, 2010, after an extended illness.

Born on July 6, 1921, in Windsor, SC, she was the daughter of the late Brantley Bonnette and Irene Oswalt Bonnette.

Mrs. Birt was a homemaker and a woman with numerous artistic talents that were shared with her family and friends.

She was a devoted mother who was committed to her children's education and their community activities, always volunteering to be the class room mother and chaperon for their numerous school events.

Mrs. Birt was a member of Holmes Avenue Baptist Church for over 56 years and was a member of the Holmes Avenue Baptist Church Bible Study group and the Women's Auxiliary for the North Charleston Exchange Club where she volunteered many hours each year at the Club's Fair Booth that raised money for abused children and other club initiatives.

She loved time spent with family and friends, but particularly enjoyed time spent fishing on Lake Marion with her beloved husband and trips with her family throughout the southern United States and Europe. Above all, she was a kind, loving, selfless, and generous Christian woman.

Surviving in addition to her husband are one daughter, Martie Birt Williams and husband Donald of Charleston; one daughter-in-law, Marilyn G. Birt of Santee; one sister, Mattie Bell of Aiken; five grandchildren, Brenda McAlhany of Walterboro, Robert Birt of Summerville, Michael Abro of Mt. Pleasant, Colleen Birt of North Charleston, and Billy Birt of Santee; eight great-grandchildren and many loving nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by two sons, Laverne Marion Birt and Robert Joseph Birt and two sisters Mary B. Laird, Reatha B. Redd; five brothers, James Bonnette, Murray Bonnette, David Bonnette, Farrell Bonnette, and B. W. Bonnette.

Interment was in Carolina Memorial Park.
