Martha L. Markham

GOSHEN — Martha “Marty” Lillian Markham, 90, passed away of natural causes Wednesday at Greencroft Goshen Health Care.

She was born Dec. 7, 1922, in Goshen, to the late George and Alma (Kistler) Burt. On Dec. 23, 1956, at Plymouth United Methodist Church in Goshen, she married Donald Arthur Markham.

He survives along with two natural born children, Darlene (Steve) Gill of Taylors, S.C., and Dr. David (Rosanne) Markham of Goshen; and one adopted son, Mark (Maria) Markham of Guam; five grandchildren, Megan Gill, Samantha Markham, Weston Markham, Burt Markham and Marian Markham.

She was preceded in death by her parents and only sister, Margaret Ann “Dolly”Burt, who died April 15, 1932, at the age of 11.

Marty is a graduate of Goshen High School and worked at Penn Controls in Goshen. Once married, she remained a homemaker. She lived for a short time in North Carolina and Hawaii as her husband was in the military. They eventually settled in Southern California (Santa Ana) for about 30 years. She spent her time being involved in her children’s activities and enjoyed baking, sewing, and cross stitch.

In 1992, after their children had married, Don and Marty moved back home to Goshen. She had traveled to Alaska, Korea, Europe and Australia.

There will be an open house from 3 to 5 p.m. Saturday at 507 Hawthorne Dr., Goshen, Dr. David and Rosanne’s residence.

Burial will be at Violett Cemetery at a later date.
