Death: Sep. 27, 1987

Martha Alice was born to John White and Lucy Lenfesty in Marion Indiana. She was the second of their children. Her siblings were Wilford, Elizabeth and Sara Laouse. They moved to Boulder City in 1917 (just before Sarah was born.)

"Martle" married Bert Mischke and became a first grade school teacher. She and her husband traveled. After his death and her retirement, she continued her adventures to other countries. She especially loved Mexico.

She became acquainted with Father Lawrence Kern at the Episcopal Church. They became close friends through the rest of her life. They traveled together and enjoyed art, music and politics.

Martle never had children of her own but many called her "Aunt Martle" and thought a great deal of this special lady.

Martle died due to a cigarette ash setting her clothes on fire. She was at Poudre Valley Hospital with severe burns until taken to the University of Colorado Hospital in Denver where she died Sept 27, 1987.

She is remembered with love and missed by her surrogate family and friends. 
Cremated, Ashes scattered.
