On behalf of Nottingham UMC and the Mendota Ministry, we extend our sympathy and love to Martha's family.
We have many wonderful memories of Church Worship and activities including bus trips with Martha. She was a fun person and enjoyed keeping the laughter going. She was loved!

Martha was a caregiver for our step papaw (Gerald Leonard of Hiltons, Va.) some years back. She was so good to him and was like part of the family. I have so many good memories of her. I talked to her last year around Christmas. I am so sorry that she is gone. I want her family to know how much we appreciated her care and extend our sincerest sympathies to her family and loved ones.
Rest peacefully, Martha.
