Martha Ann was born in Ozark February 3, 1933. Raised as an only child in the country, she grew up loving her cousins, cats and dogs. She married Wyman at age 17 and celebrated 62 years together before he passed away in 2013. They moved to Pensacola in 1954 when Wyman started working at Chemstrand. Although she had several jobs in the early years, her job as mother was most important. Later she worked at Gerald Newman State Farm Agency for 30 years, eventually becoming the office manager. Martha Ann loved to help people and get to know them in the process. She had a great love for her Savior and her church family. She was a member of Hillcrest Baptist Church for over 60 years and was an active servant for most of those years. Martha Ann had an intense love for animals, rescuing many that were in her path and loving all that she saw. She loved nothing more than taking a trip and loading up as many family members as could go. Martha Ann was always ready for a party and happy to host or help, there was always room at her table for one more chair. Martha Ann loved her family fiercely and will be dearly missed.
