Martha has been supervisor of Calvin's nursery since 1999. She grew up in Spokane, attending First Presbyterian Church with her family. Martha attended Whitworth College and was a flight attendant with Northwest Airlines before her marriage.
After moving to Tigard with her husband and four children, the family joined Calvin in 1967. When her fourth child entered school, Martha worked in the insurance industry until 1989, then began her new career of caring for children in her home- -starting with her first grandchild in 1990. Martha has been a Deacon, is Communion Steward,
coordinator for Coffee Mingle on Sunday and works with the Homeless Committee as non-food-coordinator. All of these volunteer efforts are rewarding, of course, but nothing beats a hug from a teenager or young adult who has graduated from the nursery to Sunday School to higher ed & who still remembers the old days at the train table.
