Martha is survived by her sister-in-law, Lois Ann Hall; nephews, Thomas Hall and his wife Donna, Richard Hall and his wife Vickie, of Barrackville, and Paige Brown and his wife Gloria, of Kentucky. She also has great nephews and their families, Michael Hall and his wife Courtney, James Hall and his wife Jamie, Steven Hall, Rachel Hall, Jason Brown and his wife Amy, and Rachel Brown.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Lewis W. Hall; and her only beloved son, Lewis W. Hall II. She was also preceded by one brother, James Lee and his wife Jobie Brown of Florida; one beloved sister, Marie Christy and her husband Ralph of Fairmont; her brother-in-law, Carl Hall; and her mother-in-law, Vada Hall of Barrackville.

The family would like to also thank Jackie Fitch and the home health care nurses and employees at Fairmont General Hospital for their wonderful care and compassion shown to Martha during her illness.

The family requests that memorial donations be made to the St. Jude Children’s Hospital, 262 Danny Thomas PL 220, Memphis, TN 38105, 1-800-805-5856.
