  1. I remember Martha Nell when I first entered St Genevieves in Asheville. She was one of the first to befriend me. Remember the years and and graduating in 1967. My heart breaks for her family. May each find peace in memories.
    She looked the same…a lovely person.

  2. I left a comment earlier don’t know where it went. Martha Nell better know as MN to some of us was loved by many. She was my big sister at SGP and was wonderful. Always there for me. I was even prillivaged to be in her wedding. She had me fly out earlier so we could have some special time together. Ever so thoughtful..She loved her family and was so proud of all of them. I’m glad she was here when the twins were born. Miss her and our long phone calls. Take care Panky Family and always remember she loved u all so much.
