  6. George (and family), My sincerest condolences on Marty’s passing. She was a wonderful, vibrant woman, whom I so enjoyed talking with any party I saw her at! She was a good friend of my mother’s, and like those who have gone before her, it is a loss to us all when another Woodbridge Mom from that generation leaves us. They were/are a unique group of ladies who did so much for our community, church, and families. There is a void that will never be replaced. I cherish all those years with Marty and the rest!! I miss my mother, and I will miss Marty….. All my love.

  10. I wish to express my condolances for the passing of Marty. So many times she would come into the Parish House with a smile on her face and a pleasant greeting for me.
