Condolences to Martha's family. I knew her well when I delivered Pepsi in the 1960's. She was funny and a joy to know.

My family and I would like to send condolences to Martha's family and friends. My wife, Leanne, met Martha on a trip to Blythe to visit my family. I met Martha when I started delivering Pepsi in the 1960's when I worked for the Claypools. She was a grand lady and very funny. She and Mary would always make me laugh. It was a joy to have her as a friend. I will always remember her.
