Doris J. Martz went home to be with her Lord on December 18, 2020 while a resident of Clarview Nursing Home after an extended illness.
She was born on May 25, 1927 in Climax to Thomas and Cora Mae (Boyer) Uplinger. She was the last surviving member of her family.
She married Alfred E. Martz on December 24, 1947. He preceded her in death on February 1, 1996.

They began dairy farming in Clarion County in 1950. She was Al’s right hand man. She milked cows twice a day, cleaned milk tanks, baled hay and even sold Avon.
When they retired to Arizona in 1977 she began painting and they joined a card club and enjoyed her time there. They began to collect antique glassware and furniture and had 3 consignment stores in AZ. She enjoyed working crossword puzzles, word finds, playing cards and attending the Senior Center in Distant. She spent her time loving her dogs and cats, watching the Steelers, Pirates, Penguins, Cubs and Jeopardy.
Her favorite Bible verse was Psalm 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God.” Her philosophy of life was “Life is too short for families to fight, we need to forgive and get over it.” And “Get your big girl pants on and get er done.” And instead of swearing she’d say “Oh dear gussie.”

She is survived by two sons, Ken Martz in Seale, AL., Doug (Deby) Martz in Enid Ok. Two daughters Sue (Don) Jeffers, and Linda Martz of New Bethlehem. She has 13 grandchildren, 29 great-grandchildren and 4 great-great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, brothers Tommy and Clarence and sister Ruth. Her husband Al, daughter-in-law Sharon and grandsons Craig Martz and David Martz.
Services will be Tuesday, December 22 from 11a-1p with the funeral service beginning at 1:00p. at the Leatherwood Church with Rev. Don Jeffers and Rev. Doug Henry co-officiating. Burial will be in the Kellersburg Methodist Cemetery.

The family asks that you strictly follow CDC guidelines and come masked and socially distanced in order to protect the grieving family and friends.
