IAEM members express sympathy to IAEM-USA Policy Advisor Martha Braddock

from IAEM

IAEM members were sorry to hear that the mother of IAEM-USA Policy Advisor Martha Braddock, Gladys Jewell Ausburn Stapp of Leonard, Texas, passed away on Feb. 19, 2013. Funeral services will be held Friday, Feb. 22, 2013 at the First Baptist Church in Leonard beginning at 2 p.m., and burial will follow in the Leonard Cemetery.

Born on Aug. 4, 1914, Mrs. Stapp was married to Arthur Robert Staff on Apr. 20, 1935, and lived most of her life in Leonard, Texas. She is survived by her brother, four daughters, eight grandchildren, and 11 great-grandchildren. Along with other family members, Martha was able to be with her mother for the last few days, and noted that "she talked about what a great life she had had, how proud she was of her daughters, and she wanted to hear about the grandchildren." Martha described her mother as "witty, optimistic, and loving."

IAEM members extend their heartfelt sympathy to Martha and her family. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorials be made to the Leonard Preservation League, P.O. Box 450, Leonard, Texas 75452; Boy Scout Troop 156, P.O. Box 67, Leonard, Texas 75452; or First Baptist Church of Leonard, P.O. Box 1146, Leonard, Texas 75452. more
