Added note:

We had the privilege of interviewing Martha in her home in 2002.  She was a gracious and charming lady...with a gentle smile and a 'WASP Twinkle' in her eye. 

Martha was very active in the community of Washington, Iowa, where she was born.  A member of the Washington, Iowa Methodist Church, she worked in the church office, and as a volunteer with the Community Chest, the Planning & Zoning Committee, Committee for the Restoration of the YMCA, and was President of the YWCA for 2 terms.

She was most proud of her 3 children,
her grandchildren & great grand child. 

Martha (rt) and Carol Selfridge
