Memories Timeline


  1. I am sitting here trying to remember my fondest memories of Martha, and all I can see is her laughing, sitting on the front porch of their house at Mountain Terrace. My mother thought the world of Charlie and Martha Woody, and Sheila was a very good fried when I was young. Mom, (Betty Merideth) Died July 16, 1983, I was 16 years old. So, I feel sure, that Mom and Martha have met up already and are having a blast! Laughing I am sure.

    Please call me Sheila, and give my love to Gail, Tommy and Jeff.
    Take care
