Martha was born and raised in Santa Fe and graduated from Santa Fe High School in 1972. Shortly thereafter, she married John Cotoia and started her family. Martha modeled as a young woman and was an extremely talented artist working primarily in stained glass, beadwork, and jewelry design. She loved to sew, paint, and craft pretty much anything. Martha had a green thumb in the garden and with plants. She enjoyed roller skating, skiing, hiking, and dancing in her active years.
Martha was a joyous and strong lady who loved others and the served the Lord. She suffered for many years with illness and has now been called to her eternal home where “He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever” (Revelation 21:4, NLT). She now walks with her divine Lord.
