Martha was a tall, strong woman and wore many hats over the years. To name a few, she was a Mother to many, a Brownie and Girl Scout leader, a Pianist, a Music Teacher, a Mary Kay representative, an Artist and a great furniture saleswoman.

Martha was known for her beautiful blue eyes, she had a contagious smile and was always available for a good “ Martha Talk”. She was a master in the kitchen, and was an active member in the community when she lived in Groesbeck. She married her Soulmate and the love of her life Lynn Pippin, and you would always find them walking hand in hand. Together they enjoyed traveling the states going to auctions, estate sales and the Baylor Girls Basketball games. They owned and operated the Groesbeck Antique Mall, and Lynn said she was the best business partner and life partner. He recalls them visiting with customers and eating lunches together and he working on furniture in the back while she was selling up front.

You had a

heart of gold

and a

beautiful soul.

You were

loved by

so many,

young and old.

If we had one

more day

to spend

with you,

We would tell you

how much we love you

and make all

your dreams come true.

You were more

than a Mom.

You were our

best friend too.

We are so lost

without you, and


this is Heavens


We know you’re

happy; you’re

no longer

in pain.

You’ll live

in our hearts

forever Mom,

until we meet again.
