Martha was preceded in death by her parents and husband. She had also lost a son, Jimmy; a daughter-in-law, Roseanna Saull; a son-in-law, Charles Maskey; a granddaughter-in-law, April Saull; a step-grandson, Dice Lee; and a grandson-in-law, Rick Gonzalez; as well as three brothers, Merle, Vincent and Russell Fox; and two sisters, Rosemary Fadley and Carola Tucker.
Prior to Martha’s graduation from Upper Sandusky High School in 1947, she worked at Isalys Ice Cream Shop. After graduation from high school she worked at Wood’s Coffee Shop, Walton Grain and then went on to work 31 years at Westinghouse/AO Smith where she retired in 1988.
She was a long-time member of Transfiguration of the Lord Catholic Church, where she participated in many church activities; she also volunteered at Wyandot Memorial Hospital and attended activities at the Wyandot County Senior Citizens Center. Martha also enjoyed gardening, fishing locally and at Lake Erie, crocheting, baking, doing ceramics and following sports, especially the OSU Buckeyes. She cherished her family and attending their various sporting events. She enjoyed traveling to that state up north with her husband Bob salmon fishing. Trips to Canada fishing were also joyous for Martha, but not as much as watching her husband and eldest son Danny play fast pitch softball.
A mass of Christian burial will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday, June 15, at Transfiguration of the Lord Catholic Church officiated by the Rev. Conrad Sutter, OFM Conv., and Deacon Kevin Wintersteller. Burial will follow at St. Peter’s Catholic Cemetery. Visitations for Martha will be held from 2-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, June 14, at Lucas-Batton Funeral Home in Upper Sandusky.
Memorials may be made to St. Peter’s Catholic School, the Upper Sandusky Lions Club, Shriners Hospital or Cerebral Palsy Foundation and can be sent to Lucas-Batton Funeral Home, 476 S. Sandusky Avenue, Upper Sandusky, OH 43351.
