In addition to her parents, she was also preceded in death by her twin sister, Mary Lynn Pickens Neely and husband Marshall.

    I worked with Martha at UAM for a time and we spent many lunch breaks together . She was so tender hearted and such an inspiration to me and always reminded me that God would show me the way in my trials tribulations. She adored her family so much and loved Karen deeply. I am so sorry Karen.
