Martha was preceded in death by husbands Joseph G. Dalsey, Jr. & Jeffrey M. Smentek.
A life-long resident of Westmont, she was an avid gardener who worked hard to bring a bit of the English countryside to her Strawbridge Avenue yard. More than anything else, she loved being "Granny" to her grandkids Annie, Joey, Lillian, & Jake, as well as grandniece Shannon. In fact, her role as "Granny" went far beyond family. All neighborhood kids were welcome to the cookies in the snack drawer & her house was a well-known destination on Halloween.
