Elizabeth and Wolfgang, I am so sad to hear of your mother's death and send condolences to you and all the family. I'm not sure I can express the importance your mother held to me when I was a small child. For a year or two, your home was my second home. How many afternoons did I spend driving to construction sites in the back of a panelled station wagon filled with electrical cords and tools and plans, your mother at the wheel, her then-dark hair twisted into an elegant chignon and pearls glowing in her ears, those blue eyes shining sharp, and shrewd, and bright, and full of laughter. She was kind to me, and I felt curious and alive in her presence, and I loved being with her. What's more, she was a dear friend to my parents. She made it possible for them to buy the house they loved and lived in for more than fifty years. What a gift that was. They are gone now, too, so I am writing this thanks for them. Wishing you all safe passage through the grief.
A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts and minds, through us, they live on.Your Mom will not be forgotten.
May the love of family and friends comfort you during these difficult days.
Please accept our most heartfelt condolences.
Love Anna and family.
I have known Martha and Wolfgang since 1976, she was an amazing person she could make a Black Forest cake like I have never had,and her taste in dogs was right up my ally (Dobermans), she always helped Ian and I whenever we needed her, and she was an amazing business woman and I was proud to say “I know that person in that magazine” quite an accomplishment , she was tough and strong and also so caring. She will be missed for sure RIP Martha.
I will always remember how you would make me a Black Forest cake on my birthday it was the only bright thing about getting older. The entire Davis family send our deepest sympathies to Wolfgang and the entire family. Love Dianne Davis.
Oma Martha was one of a kind. Always stood up for what she belived. Strong and determined are words that describe her.
She was on the forfront of womens lib, and didn't even know it. She just did what she thought was right.
A capable woman in business, and a wonderful cook and baker.
She is an inspiration to all women.
Rest is peace Oma.
