She loved her flower and vegetable gardens and made the best pies in the county.  Martha worked several jobs during her life but being the store manager for the Tenbrook Sales office in Tipton was where she retired after 19 years.

She was a member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church and its Altar Rosary Society as well as the Legion of Mary.  She loved her Catholic faith and never went a day without saying her rosary.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Robert, daughter Melanie Slater, brothers Lawrence and Paul Altherr and sisters Katherine Kritsch, Agnes Massey, Mary Gootee and Deloras “Dee” Hoose.

A funeral mass for Marty will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, August 16 at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church with Rev. Dennis Goth presiding.  Burial in St. John’s Cemetery next to her beloved husband Robert will be at a later date.  Visitation will be on Monday from 1:00-2:00 p.m. with the rosary being recited starting at 1:45.
