She graduated from Cedar Grove high school and married Tracy McQuillen on September 26, 1959 in Handley, WV, by Rev. Jim Franklin. They were married over 60 years. Martha and Tracy spent their married years in TX, WV, PA, and 53 years in Orrville.
Martha worked as an aide at Dunlap Memorial Hospital, Orrville, completing her work career at Westinghouse Electric Corp. in Orrville.

A special “shout out” to three people who will miss having her in their lives; “Sis, Ruby McQuillen King; niece, Erin McQuillen Porr; and granddaughter Sara (Baby), who was always there for her “granny”.
