Douglas Weir and his wife Carol, of Mitchell, and Elizabeth (Weir) Brown, and spouse Philip, of Charlotte, North Carolina, five grandchildren, and ten great-grandchildren.  She was preceded in death by her husband, parents, and sisters, Ruth Knowles and Mary Greiner.

A private, graveside service is planned. Memorial gifts can be made in Martha’s memory to Adaptive Hospice in Jeffersonville.
