Read more about the life story of Carol and share your memory.
Carol Ann Martz (Franke), 77, passed away on September 12, 2023. She was a loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother and friend. She loved spending time with her family and friends and filled her home with warmth and kindness. She is preceded in death by her husband of 54 years, Bill Martz, parents, Bill and Florence Franke and her brother Billy Franke (Kay Franke).
She cherished her Son Michael Martz and daughter-in-law, Sherry Martz, her Daughter Michelle Sperber and son-in-law JB Sperber. She has 5 wonderful grandchildren - Trevor, Dylan, Karli,
Jake and Kamryn who adored her. She taught her children and grandchildren the value of working hard for the things they want.
Carol never knew a stranger and enjoyed meeting people and hearing their stories. She was truly a social butterfly and lit up the room with her personality. She enjoyed gathering with family for meals and conversation. She was raised on the water, and shared her love of boating with her husband and kids. She loved the wind in her hair and the smell of the lake. She was an avid slalom skier and drove the boat like a boss. She was also a member of the Laughing Liberty Ladies Red Hats. She loved her sweet treats! She never met a donut or cake she didn’t like! She adored animals, especially dogs. Her buddy Gabby was always by her side.
To mirror the way she lived her life with love, laughter, celebration, we are having a Celebration of Life filled with family, friends, food, football and stories on Sunday, October 22, 2023 at 1:00 at The Bridge Point Clubhouse, 7299 Bridge Point Pass.
Carol supported the Tunnel to Towers charity that helps our First Responders and Veterans. Donations can be made in her name to this wonderful cause.
Carol will be desperately missed by all those that she’s left behind. Our hearts are so broken by this unexpected loss. She was one of a kind and to be loved by her was to be truly blessed.
