Leave Condolences


I am so sorry and devastated to hear about Martha. I worked for her as a CNA at Pioneer Care Center until September of this year. She was my favorite resident in the facility; always giving me great words of advice, telling me her amazing stories, and most of all being a friend. I didn't think of her as just a resident. I thought of her as an angel and a friend. She was truly a gift from God. She was always putting everyone else first. I regret not going back and visiting her before she passed. I had never found the time. I'm so sad now that she's gone but I know she's smiling down from heaven and forgives me. Because that's the kind of person she was. rest in peace Martha. You will be greatly missed.
