My deepest condolences to the Gomer and Drawbaugh family. Marty always brought a smile to anyone who knew her. I know my mom, Jane (McKenzie) Trimble always looked forward to visits with the family. I apologize for not attending the memorial service, as we were on vacation in south New Jersey and just arrived home this afternoon. Please know that our hearts were there. Marty was well loved by all and will be missed.
Love to all the family, Jan (Trimble) and Jim Hill

Thinking of this caring family in their time of sorrow. Marty will be sadly missed. We enjoyed her visits, coming to Madawaska and Florida to
spend time with us and her visits with us while we were in Pennsylvania. Always a pleasant, enjoyable lady. Proud of her family. She will be sadly missed. Love to all.

Sympathy to your family. Mrs. Gomer was my third grade teacher in 1978. So sad to see her passing. We will pray for your family.
