Condolence & Memory Journal

Martha was my two daughters' school bus driver nearly their whole school years. She was a grand lady and really looked after her passengers like they were her own children. She will be missed.

Dear Family of Martha and Woody: Martha, being the last of two McConnell fixtures of Oaklandon will be missed. Woody was always good for a story and Martha driving that big ole blue-gray station wagon and school bus. We have good memories of them and please accept our heartfelt condolences for the loss of Martha. Tom & Carmen Mock
