Martha Janet Stickler
STICKLER Martha Janet Stickler, 94, of Jacksonville, FL, passed away early on Wednesday, January 28, 2015. She had been residing at River Garden Wolfson Health & Aging Center following a mild stroke in September of 2014. Martha had been visited on Tuesday by her three Children and her caregiver of six years, Nadine Whyte, and died peacefully in her sleep overnight. She was predeceased by her Father and Mother, Jacob and Martha Stern, two older sisters, Dorothy and Vera, and her husband of 52 years, Robert W. Stickler, Sr. Born Martha Janet Stern in Brooklyn, NY on September 19, 1920, she met and married her husband Bob Stickler in September, 1941, just prior to Bob s entering service in the U.S. Navy. Following his service, Martha and Bob began their family, and his career took them from Brooklyn to Pittsburgh, PA (1950-1972), Miami, FL (1972-74), and finally to Jacksonville in 1974, where they remained, residing in the Deerwood Country Club community until Bob s death in 1993.

Together over the years, Martha and Bob served their successive communities and sponsored their children s development and activities, including founding the North Whitehall Athletic Association (Little League Baseball) in Pittsburgh in 1951, along with various Scouting and social organizations along the way. In the process, they enabled all three children to graduate from college and begin successful careers. Together, they loved entertaining friends and family, who will remember Martha as a welcoming, thoughtful and gregarious hostess. Through the years, Martha was active with various hobbies and activities, including bridge clubs, bowling and Methodist Church-related organizations. She loved to tell stories, often at her own expense, and with great humility and humor. She is survived and will be lovingly remembered by her sons, Donald (LeeDell) of Nashville, Bob Jr. of Jacksonville, and Daughter Gretchen Molz (Kenneth) of Kettering, Ohio; Grandchildren Scott, Michelle, Kenny and Kyle, and Great-Grandchildren Hala and Marian, both of Winter Haven, FL, as well as several nieces, nephews, and Godchildren. At Martha s request, no formal funeral services will be held. The family is planning a private memorial gathering in the Spring of 2015.
