MANSFIELD: Martha May Hurt passed away Monday, March 1, 2021 in her home surrounded by her family. She was 85.
She was born November 24, 1935 to parents Kent & Esther (McDaniels) Carpenter in Johnsville. Martha graduated from Johnsville High School with the class of 1953.
Martha worked as a nurse aide at People’s Hospital for 27 years before retiring.
Being raised on a farm Martha always enjoyed being outdoors and as such she found enjoyment in flower gardening. She also enjoyed having bird feeders around so that she could watch birds. She was an avid reader who also enjoyed listening to country music and dancing. She enjoyed going on rides with her Husband Sam going to places like Michigan, Glacier National Park and California just to name a few.
But above all, Martha loved her family. She enjoyed each member of her family and she was known to cry from time to time when someone would leave after a visit because she loved them so much. Martha will be greatly missed!
She is survived by Husband Sam Hurt; children Lois (Tim) Baker, Donna Parsons, Amy (Allen) Deal, Jason (Lynn) Hurt and Eric (Melissa) Hurt; 14 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren with one on the way; 1 great-great-granddaughter; sister Maxine Phenecie; brother-in-law Roy (Mary) Hurt; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family.
She was preceded in death by her parents and first husband Don McCormack; sisters Ila and Eunice; brother Jimmy; grandson Matthew.
The Hurt family will receive friends Thursday, March 4, 2021 from 4-7 p.m. in the Bellville Snyder Funeral Home where a funeral service honoring Martha’s life will be held Friday beginning at 11 a.m. Son Jason Hurt and son-in-law Tim Baker will speak. Burial will follow in Shauck Cemetery.
The Hurt family would like to express their deepest gratitude and thanks to Southern Care Hospice, Treva, Katrina, Monica and the many other aides and other nurses who helped take care of Martha. They are true heroes.
