The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Marty. From playing pool and hanging out with friends to back roading and listening to music. Marty was a free spirited soul who loved to dance, especially with her dad. She was a “God Fearing Woman” who was a force to reckon with if you crossed her or a loved one. She always lit up a room with her adventurous personality and will be greatly missed by many.

Scott, KS; daughter, Anna (David) Martin, Nevada, MO; six grandchildren, Stefanie Underwood, Dallas Underwood, Billy Ray Underwood, Jacob Underwood, Tequila Pike, and Deanna Gicante; numerous great-grandchildren; three brothers, Henry McCartney, Nevada, George McCartney, Nevada, and Larry McCartney, Walker; two sisters, Georgia Turner, Adrian, and Cecilia Underwood, Everton, MO; and numerous nieces and nephews.
