  • Kim Corbett Johnson I'm so sorry for your loss. Martha was a sweet woman, a dear neighbor. I am very inspired by her strength, independence, how she was so responsible as a community member of Batavia. When she started to have health problems that she felt could get in the way of her safe driving, she gave up driving so she wouldn't hurt anyone. Even in her later years of life before moving to the nursing home, she made sure to have her home kept up nice. I will never forget her, I am so sorry I didn't keep my promise and visit her more often in the nursing home. Rest in peace, Martha, we love you.
