Remembering a Life Full of Graciousness




May 22, 2019
Since September of 2016, Meadow Grove Transitional Care has had the privilege of calling Martelle one of our loved ones. Martelle was an amazing woman that always had love for others in her heart and actions even at an early age!

Martelle graduated from Olivet Nazarene College/University at 22 years old. She then became a schoolteacher (in the 1950s) of English/Spanish/spelling for junior high/high school students. In 1975, she began working as a professional seamstress and had many clients in the Indianapolis area, as well as in suburban Philadelphia.

While enjoying teaching and choirs, Martelle started into a long career as a seamstress (45 years!). When she first joined a community, she was at Wayne Center in Wayne, PA. Martelle then began making tote bags for the residents and new members to their community. Once arriving to Meadow Grove, Martelle continued on this journey to better her community members and always serve as a welcoming soul – still making totes for the residents. She found joy in being able to maintain her skills as a seamstress for residents, family members, and even staff!

This past month, Martelle passed into the next stage of life and left our community with an immense amount of appreciation for her, love, and gratitude for the things she did. Over the years, Martelle hand made over 300 tote bags for residents at Wayne Center and more than 280 bags for residents at Meadow Grove – touching the lives of hundreds with her positive disposition.

It was an honor and privilege for our staff to have shared these years with Martelle and we are grateful for all that she has done in our community. Truly, the little things are what bring people together and allow families to be formed within our walls. That is immeasurable – and for that, we will always remember Martelle.
