She enjoyed ‘get-togethers’ with family and friends. Throughout her life, she also enjoyed many activities like traveling, swimming, crocheting, bowling, card games, keno, crosswords with her husband, and much more. She was very active in her church and volunteered in many programs with her Church Community.
Marti loved sharing her Native Heritage, going to Pow Wow’s, making fry bread, and taking several trips ‘up north’ to visit family.
She adored her dogs, feeding ducks on her walks with her husband, and feeding the squirrels in the front yard.
She will be deeply missed.
