Marty was born in Wisconsin the 2nd of 5 children.

They married in 1945 and lovingly remained together throughout a full and happy life. Marty was an executive secretary and office manager at A.E.R.O. Special Education Schools until her retirement in 1994. Workmates called her “the trooper” as she was “the boss” of the office and could always be counted on. She enjoyed strawberries and everything strawberry, shopping, and all of the Chicago sports teams as well as the Cowboys, but she especially enjoyed the Cubs. Marty was a quiet little lady who carried a big stick. She was respected and loved by all who knew her.
