Mark and David, I worked several years along side your mother in labor and delivery at New Britain General Hospital. She was a role model for all nursing staff in L&D; kind, caring, compassionate, professional and above all extremely skilled in her specialty. She was highly respected by the physicians as well as the nurses. Martha's patients loved her.

My thoughts and prayers are with you. Your mother was a lovely woman and I hope the loving memories you share will comfort you at this very difficult time. Candice Litwinczyk

My condolences to you Mark and David. It was always a fun time when I saw mom. It has been years since I’ve seen her but I’ll always remember the times I did, how happy she was. I’ll never forget how happy she was the night our son was born. May she Rest In Peace.
