In the 1980s, Marty was a neighbor to my mother in Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin, a member of the same church I went to, and I was also a co-worker of her husband's at a bank. My fondest memory of Marty is at one of the annual bank Christmas parties and we shared a table. We danced the night away, and years after that Marty would mention what a fun night that was. I'll always remember Marty with her flaming red hair and that beautiful smile. Gone too soon. Rest in sweet, heavenly peace, Marty. I will forever remember you.
