Martha was born August 29th 1944 in Akron, Ohio, and left this life much too soon Friday evening, December 7, 2007.

Martha was a loving and giving daughter, wife, mother and nana; who was loved by anyone who was lucky enough to truly know her. As a wonderful homemaker who loved to cook and take care of those closest to her, her greatest joy was making people happy. She was also a champion golfer who loved to help others to develop a love for the game. Martha, known affectionately in her later years as Super Nana, devoted countless hours helping her grandchildren, Christine, J. Barrett and Bryce Stockslager, to learn to read, write, count, create and grow. Martha was a devoted animal lover, who enjoyed the lifelong pursuit of raising and training pets and helping others to learn the joys of their companionship. Nary had a pet she met failed to receive kind praise or a treat. Martha followed in her family's footsteps by tirelessly volunteering her time and energy in numerous ways and especially enjoyed all of her work to assist Children's Hospital Medical Center of Akron. She enjoyed giving back to the hospital that gave her and others so much in return. Her 35 years of service at the hospital included her tenure as the President of the Women's Board during the hospital's 100 year anniversary. She volunteered numerous years at the NEC World Series of Golf and for the United Way Campaigns.

Martha was preceded in death by her beloved parents, Martha and Robert C. Brouse. She is survived by her husband, Jerome J. Joondeph ; her son, Jerome J. Joondeph Jr.; daughter, Laura Joondeph Stockslager; and son-in-law, Matthew J. Stockslager; and her beloved aunt, Catherine (Sis) Bronson; she is also survived by her three grandchildren, Christine, J. Barrett and Bryce Stockslager.

Many thanks for the compassionate care that she received from all of the staff at the T3 ICU unit at Akron City Hospital.

A private memorial service will be held in the spring, her favorite season, to celebrate her glorious life and bright spirit. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Akron Children's Hospital Foundation, One Perkins Square, Akron, Ohio 44398-6176.
