May the family know that Martha was so loved by all of us at Daphne Elementary! She was an inspiration to all of us! What an amazing woman and mother and grandmother! So glad I got to know her!!!!!
We will miss you, Martha. I loved the years we taught together at Daphne Elementary. I will forever be thankful that my son Clay was in your kindergarten class. You had your hands full that year. Love you always.
Martha could launch into an incredibly funny story instantly. She was a humor doctor, wiping away bad moods, and sadness. She loved her children and Bob and her very fine grandson, Sam. May Sam honor her with wit, wisdom and love. She was a fine friend.
Martha was a friend for the ages! A balm to the spirit! Her background in education and social work made her a quick study of people. She was quickly and accurately able to sum up the foibles of people while also finding good lurking beneath the surface. On a stop over visit near Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Maryland, Martha and Bob readily livened the evening over an Italian feast and desserts. The. Meal and friends caused Martha to reminisce on her background. Bob’s aviation exploits and those of the chinook and tank expert caused the guys to enjoy their similar yet different experiences. And Martha, with the ladies, inserted humor and curated experiences to balance the seriousness of wartime remembrances. As in Daphne and wherever she went, Martha was the light of the dinner. A twinkle in her eye welcomed all to her. Martha G Hohl, thank you for your gift of teaching and thank you for being a friend of faith, love, and for speaking the truth when it needed to be told. Rest in Peace Dear, Martha! Your smile remains upon our hearts and in our minds!
I loved Martha Hohl and spent many a time laughing with her. She had a gift from God to make tough times more bearable with a joke and heart felt laughter. She had some tough times but always made the best of those times with a joke and a big smile. She will be missed.
Martha became a dear friend about 3 years ago; my daughter and her grandson were friends when he went to SSC in Bay St. Louis. I was immediately drawn in to her wonderful personality and her outlook on life. She took everything in stride. I admired her a great deal and she will always be an inspiration to me. It was a blessing to have known her, even for such a short time. Praying for Sam and her family during this difficult time.
