Aunt Marty was the happiest and kindest person. I remember when my Dad was not getting the care he should have in one nursing home, and she talked to the nursing home she had worked at, and still frequented to cheer up the patients all the time, and got my Dad moved to this nursing home. My family was so appreciative of her kindness and concern for my Dad. I loved her dearly, and am so glad to have been part of her family! Love and prayers to Karen, Janet, and Kevin. You are had a great mom and dad, and she will never be forgotten. Love ya, Elaine

My heartfelt thoughts & prayers are with all of you at this time of loss. Marty was truly one of a kind, & I was blessed to have crossed paths with her, & you, over the past few years. My Thursday meal deliveries will definitely have a deep void, & I’ll miss her hugs & laughter we shared each week. Rest In Peace Marty, until we meet again. Love, Sarah

Marty and Jack were my neighbors for the last 30 years that I have lived in my house. Marty was the happiest person I knew. Always laughing always had something positive to talk about out on the back porch. She definately lived her life doing what she enjoyed. I will always remember her in the summer in her pool every sunny day, which she absolutely loved. She will be fondly thought of and missed

She was like a second Mom to my wife and there was never a time when we visited her after we were married that she didn’t make me feel like I was her son too❤️She always had a smile and a laugh that made you know that she really enjoyed life Heaven got a really wonderful angel today when Marty Brosh threw off her earthly shrouds and went to that big Jamboree in the sky. I’m sure she’s having a beer with her husband and Jesus right now❤️❤️

I have many fond memories of Aunt Marty…one that stands out is her beautiful smiles and encouraging cheers at the top of lBethlehem Hill for the runners in the Wheeling Distance Race/Ogden Classic. Aunt Marty would be wearing her Patriotic hat and blowing kisses as we ran by. Year after year, Aunt Marty would always be there at the top of 29th Street to make sure we climbed over that West Virginia Mountain! I will always be grateful to you Aunt Marty for your special radiance and all the Love you gave to others. God Bless You!

When I think of my Aunt Marty, I think of someone full of life, love and laughter. I treasure memories of yearly visits in recent years when she would share memories of the early years of her marriage and of the extended family. I realized her strength and goodness more with each visit, as well as her deep faith. Heaven will be a livelier place with her there with her beloved husband and son. My deepest sympathy to Karen, Janet, and Kevin and their families.
