Martha worked at GM for 10 years and retired from Meijer.  Martha was 65+ year member of the Order of the Eastern Star, Aero #536.  She was also a longtime member of the First Baptist Church in Fairborn, Ohio. Throughout her life, Martha enjoyed many activities, including gardening, cooking, sewing, fishing, bowling and entertaining family and friends.  But above all, she was a loving mother and wife, and devoted her life to serving others.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband Bob Carroll, her son Jerry Carroll, and son Rob Carroll.

Survivors include her youngest son Keith (Nan) Carroll, sisters Leatha (Ray) Snow and Barbara Lemaster, grand-daughters Joyce (Derrick), Jeanne (Warren), and Jennifer (Mike), many great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and good friends.
