Dear Carr and Demmerle families,

We, at the University of Dayton, are so saddened to hear of the death of Marty.

I was Marty’s professor in her sophomore and senior years, and so, got to know her well during her growth as an education professional. And, what growth it was! Her spirit and commitment were always above and beyond what was required. Her work with children was beautiful!

I can tell that she was also a beautiful wife, mother, sister and daughter to both families, friend and member of all of her communities.

Her blog to Lily is a gift to Lily, Sean and her families, and to all of us who have read it.
