Over the years Martha worked at The Best Western and Opportunity Village in Clear Lake and since 2000 she has worked at Walmart in the Fabric Department. She was a very hard worker, working until the time of her passing. She loved visiting with her Wal Mart customers at the fabric table and was involved in the Children's Miracle Network Fundraising.
In her free time, she enjoyed playing solitaire, rescuing strays and family get-togethers and going overboard on the food. Her grandchildren meant the world to her. Martha loved spending time with them, hosting sleepovers, cooking special meals (even breakfast in bed), going to their events, and spoiling them every chance she got.
Her favorite things were: Richard, John Denver, cats, her children and grandchildren. Not necessarily in that order.
Those left to cherish her memory are, her significant other, Richard Stephas, Clear Lake; her children, Sara (Cliff) Kinnetz, Emmetsburg, Angie (Nate Lemmon) Gauden, Britt, Eric Roe, Bay Area, CA, and Alison (Dustin Paulson) Roe, Solon; her grandchildren, Ty, Emma and Andrew Kral, Paige and Riley Gauden, and Kale and Ayla Mostrom and Keith Paulson; Richard's children, Nicole Davila and Ashley Castellano and their children and grandchildren in Illinois; her bonus sons, Shawn and Chad Shahan; her siblings, Leroy (Linda) Wolf, Joseph (Shirley) Wolf, Vincent “Bud” (Connie) Wolf, Helene “Mickey” Wolf, Donald (Kristy) Wolf and Mary (Earl) Thompson; her sister-in-law, Carol Wolf and brother-in-law, Brian Bowman; her cats, BK, Big Heart, and Kevin; her grand-dogs, Winston and Lola; as well as numerous nieces and nephews and extended family and friends.
