Martha "MarMar" Sue Card, 71, went to be with her Lord and Savior at 8:40 p.m. on Sept. 3, 2018, in Midland, Texas.
Martha was born in Blytheville, Arkansas on March 7, 1947, to Floyd "Shorty" and Louise Morton. As Shorty always said, "We weren't born in Texas, but we got here as soon as we could!"
Martha is known for her love of the Lord. She was a strong and faithful servant. She served her Lord faithfully for years as she helped with several different children's programs. She loved sharing the story of salvation and the one message she wanted to leave with the world was John 3:16.
Martha enjoyed serving others, much like Martha of the Bible. She enjoyed reading, spending time outdoors, and gardening.
She was a loving and faithful wife to William L. Card, Jr of Pecos. They met in March of 1963 and were married December 29, 1964. They were blessed with 53 years of marriage. They had two children, Jonathan R. Card of San Antonio and Jennifer McDonald of Arlington.
Martha was proceeded in death by her parents. She is survived by her husband and two children. She is also survived by her sister Mary Stephenson of Anton, Texas; Virgil Morton of Amarillo, Texas; and five grandchildren: Thatcher Matlock, 13 years old; Ellis Anne Card, 13 years old; Seeley Grace Card; 10 years old, William Ross Card, nine years old; and George Baker Card, five years old.
A memorial service for Martha will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 9 at First Baptist Church in Pecos. In lieu of flowers, the family request donations be made to Awanas of FBC Pecos or Buckner Children & Family Services.
