Martha Jane Pettit Connelly was born December 15th, 1960 in Fallon, Nevada to Ammah Susan (Carpenter) and Alfred Clark Pettit. She was the youngest of three girls.
Martha lived a full life of travel and adventure. She and Tom (her partner in crime of 33 years) created a lifetime of rich, gripping, and loving memories. They raised three children, Cody, Trevor, and Erin. Such nomads this woman and her family were, they sought home in many towns of Oklahoma, the peace of the Pacific Northwest, the Rockies of Colorado, and back to the red dirt.
The bringer of joy, Martha attracted such deep and loving relationships anywhere she went. People adore her. She was a safe place of home. Her healing hugs and fierce loyalty make her friendships a gift.
The Meme (Martha) was the proudest grandmother, with unconditional love and patience. She adorned her grandchildren with magic, silliness, and passion.
She is preceded in her death by her mother and father.
Her lasting love and memory is carried on in those survived by her; her parents Janice and Edward Connelly, her husband Tom, and their three children – Cody and wife Sarah, Trevor and wife Crystal, Erin and husband Steven. Their eight grandchildren – Lillian and Parker Connelly, Brandon, Wyatt, and Liam Connelly, Claire, Jack, and Ophelia Darcy.
