Martha Walter, 91, Ormond by the Sea, Fla.

— ORMOND BY THE SEA, Fla. — Martha Walter joined her husband, Jack Walter, in Heaven on Friday, May 2, 2014. She was 91.

Martha was born Nov. 11, 1922, in New Columbia, Pa., a daughter of the late William Harrison and Alice (Kurtz) Deitrick. She had been a resident of Ormond by the Sea since 1964.

Martha was an independent spirit. She was a professional cosmetologist and for many years owned her own salon, where she became a friend to many of her clients, some of whom she continued to see well into her 80s.

She also volunteered more than 27,800 hours as a Pink Lady at Halifax Hospital in Daytona Beach, and many newborns and hospitalized children went home with stuffed animals, hats and booties she helped make.

Martha was one of eight children, five of whom will greet her in Heaven. She is survived by her sister, Jane Showers, of Edgewater, Fla., and brother, Robert Deitrick, of New Columbia; and many nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews, some of whom considered her a second mother.

She was preceded in death by Mary Reigel, Alice Eisenhauer, George Deitrick, Bill Deitrick and Gladys Deitrick, in childhood.

Her strength and spirit will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved her.

Funeral services were held Tuesday in Florida.
