Obituary for Martha "Marty" L. King

Martha "Marty" L. King, 75, of Olney, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family on December 20, 2018. Marty was born on October 18, 1943, on Sycamore St. in Olney, IL to parents Opal D. and Maude B. (Haines) McLerran. 

Marty loved her hometown and refused to live anywhere else. Her first job was at Gobert's Shoe Store. Through the years she worked at Bunny Bread, City Hall, Olney Savings and Loan, and the County Clerk's Office. In retirement she was active in her church and the Hospital Auxiliary. She was a current member of Antioch Church and a former member of Immanuel United Methodist Church. She was a good friend and neighbor who loved meeting the crew for early morning coffee, dinner, or a game of pinochle. She was an excellent cook and loved baking desserts. Her strawberry pie recipe is known around town.

Marty is survived by her sister, Kay Pinkstaff, of Morris, IL; two children, Sherry (Blank) Gaa, and spouse Richard of Peoria, IL; Scott Blank and spouse Crystal of Galesburg, IL; four grandchildren, Nicholas and Spencer Gaa, and Sadie and Jasper Blank; and her life partner, Roy Kuykendall. 

She was preceded in death by her parents, her sister, Annetta Lynch, and her brother, Bryce McLerran.
