Martha was a member of the former St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church in McKeesport. She was an Irish blessing of unconditional love for her family and friends. A resilient woman with decades of style and confidence, she was able to find contentment in every situation. She truly enjoyed reading, celebrations and gifts. A favorite of Martha’s were sweets, so the family will celebrate her life with green jello and grasshoppers.
Martha was the matriarch of a family that was raised with her love and Jesus Christ’s love. She is survived by her sons, John “Jack” J. (Mary Ann) of Irwin, Kenneth C. (Debra) of Durham, NC, Gary P. (Linda) of Mt. Pleasant, SC, Richard M. of Houston, TX, Scott R. (Cheryl) of Port Orange, FL; grandchildren, Benjamen Heatherington, Kelly Begg, Molly Kauffman, Teresa Tellez, Landon Heatherington, Marie Antonopoulos, Martha LeBlanc, Garrett Heatherington, Ryan Heatherington, Chelsea Weitekamp, Erica Heatherington, Tara Heatherington, Whitney Stange; great-grandchildren, Christian, Collin, Madison, Zachary, Katelyn, Ella, Quinton, Juniper, Piper, Rowe, Gavin, Robbie, Grayson, Jo, Cora; and niece, Martha “Marci” Strunck of Greensburg, PA.
