March 1, 1935 - August 31, 2020
Martha was born on March 1, 1935, in Oklahoma City, OK to her parents, James Earl and Bernice (Smith) Robbins, the third of three daughters. She passed away on August 31, 2020, at the age of 85. Martha was a lifelong resident of Oklahoma City. She attended Shields Heights and Lafayette Elementary Schools. Upon completion, Martha went to Capitol Hill Junior High and finished at Capitol Hill Senior High School, graduating in 1953. She was blessed with many friends at Capitol Hill that lasted her entire life. She held many titles during her high school years including President of the Knobborettes Pep Club and was chosen as Baseball Queen for 1953. Martha was presented the Altrusa Award for community service and was a member of Student Council and the Nouveau Livre Book Club. Martha was a devoted mother to her children, Kellie and Scott, providing them with a daily example of how to be kind and fun-loving, and how to be a good friend. In 1953 she started her working career at OG&E. By 1957 Martha was working at Oklahoma Christian University. She became very close with many students during her time at OC and served as a surrogate mother to dozens who were away from home for the first time. She maintained those relationships for decades after they graduated. She then became a medical transcriptionist for the OU Health Science Center and also worked for Amerex Oil Co. and FDIC-OKC. Not one to sit still for very long, in her 70’s Martha became an Enumerator at the US Department of Agriculture where she enjoyed even more wonderful friendships with all of her co-workers. Martha is survived by her daughter, Kellie Roth and husband, Robert; son, Scott Sadler and wife, Anne; granddaughter, Elizabeth Jane; sister, Lee; and many loving nieces, nephews, and life-long friends who will all miss her terribly.
