Martha was born on May 13, 1935 in Claude, Texas to Ernest David and Belva Frances (Foster) Abbott.

Martha and her family moved from Amarillo to the metroplex over 20 years ago, and from this time, she was a member of Bisbee Baptist Church in Mansfield. Martha was a wonderful wife, mother, and Nana. She kept her home clean and nicely organized and was an excellent cook. She was a loving mother who always made sure that her kids were well taken care of at home, in school, and in church! When her children were involved in sports or other activities, she was always supportive and encouraging. She devoted herself to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren which came easy for her as she loved and adored babies and children and loved watching them play. Martha was a caregiver and was always compassionate and humble. She worked for 15 years at Dillard’s to help support her family. She loved to attend church, read her Bible every day, and was faithful to her Christian beliefs. She always took care of herself, both in her outward appearance and inside with her caring heart. She will be deeply missed by her family and everyone who came to know and love her.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Ernest and Belva Foster and her husband, Loyd Edward Futch.

Survivors include two sons, Terry Edward Futch and wife, Kathy, and Larry Eugene Futch and wife, Sheila; two daughters, Tammy Cagle and husband, Rickie, and Kristi Miller; one brother, John Abbott and wife, Patricia, one sister, Carolyn Findley and husband, Robert; grandchildren, Jeremy, Amber, Preston, Alicia, Brady, Brittany, Tristan, Brandon, Andrew, and Matthew ; and great-grandchildren, Lakin, Landra, Ellie, Grayson, Caleb, Breely, Annabella, Harrison, Scout, Ranger, Lukas, Rikki, and Denver.

  4. Carolyn, we are so sorry for the loss of your sister, and extend our condolences to the entire family! The words used here to describe Martha in her eulogy are a wonderful tribute to her life and character! To such a one, surely the Lord would address her arrival to heaven with the welcoming words, “Well done, good and faithful servant! Enter now into the enjoyment of the Lord!” ❤️

  5. I can’t think of a more beautiful spirit- Martha was an example early in my life of how a woman can be all things strong, loving, and kind and for that I am a better person. I send all the family love and may fond memories carry you through sad days of missing her. Thank you for sharing her with me and letting me be a part of your life as well. Much love, Gena Baggerman Ray

  6. I do enjoy the way you have framed this problem and it really does offer us some fodder for thought. However, from what I have experienced, I only wish as other remarks stack on that people today remain on point and not start on a soap box associated with the news of the day. Yet, thank you for this superb piece and whilst I do not concur with it in totality, I value the point of view.
