Martha is survived by her husband, James Wilson; her children Jenny (Dr. Lee Henderson) Collier-Henderson; James (Patti) Collier, Donald (Debbie) Collier; Julie Howard; Marti (Glenn) Crouch; and Maynard Wilson; her siblings Judy (Bill) Wand; John (Vicki) Gunn; Nora Bennett; 9 grandchildren, 8 great-grandchildren; many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews; and many many friends.  The family would like to extend a special thanks to Debbie Collier for taking care of Martha through her illness.  

In addition to her parents James and Virginia Gunn, Martha is preceded in passing by her son Ernie "Lil E" Howard; and her siblings Loretta Spear, Sandy Spear, Robert Gunn, Bill Wand, Ed, Sully, Charles, Ethelene, Inis, and Walter Lee.
