Biography

Martha Mae Price

Martha Mae Schwab Price, 78, of Lowman passed away on Saturday, March 20, 2021 at home.

She was predeceased by her parents, Cyral and Arvilla Schwab; daughter, Autumn Price Townsand; and grandson, Mitchell Ayers.

Martha is survived by her children, Herm (Faye) Springstead, Brian Price, Candy (Michael) Wagner and Amber Thorpe; grandchildren, Jeffrey Wagner, Karen Wagner, Nathan (Josie) Wagner, Hallea Decker, Daltyn Decker, Austyn Casselbury, Victoria Amaro-Decker, Ashlee Decker, Chad Price, Brett Price, Jasmine Price, Marcia Ayers, Michael Ayers, Angel Thorpe, Jessica, Timothy and Justin Townsand; several great grandchildren; and many special friends, including Ann Kelly and Nick Lutz.

Martha was born in Glens Falls, New York and went on to work and retire from Headstart and Finger Lakes DDSO.  Martha was known as the “Quarter Lady” at the Athens Flea market, her saying was “Quarter all the way across, whether you need it or not”. She enjoyed family, friends, collecting buttons and marbles.  She enjoyed watching the birds at her many bird feeders that she would request to be filled as soon as they got the slightest bit low.  She kept track of her mini farm of chickens and ducks that she and her son Herm have.  She enjoyed setting up at the flea market with her daughter, Candy.  Martha may not have known your name, but she would always remember your face and what you collected. 

At Martha’s request there will be no services at this time and a celebration of life will be planned at a later date.  The family is being assisted by the Blauvelt Funeral Home, 625 Broad Street, Waverly, New York.  Those wishing to send a message of sympathy to Martha’s family may visit our Facebook page or in “Obituaries” at www.baluveltfuneralhome.com

Candy, Herm & everyone ..
can't begin to imagine  what is going thru your minds.. Being a family who is close, kids, grandbabies & friends.. this passing of your mom , whom you all shared with so many..going to become so quiet within not only your homes, but so many places out in the area without ""Marty"" being there! Even though we won't "see" her physically, I know she'll still be there, leading people to their "finds" at the local markets! I can just see her now, setting up her tables, pulling banana boxes out of a van !! She even has God  standing there telling him  all about a "Quarter, all across the front table!!" Watch she has him set up enjoying listening, being educated about glass, jewelry, buttons and what nots galore!! Going to miss her mumbling and  the wave of her hand then , turning her head with that HUGE Smile not only on her face, but in her voice!! Was never a time she didnt have time for anyone either! Loss , missing , does'nt begin to express what so many are going to be feeling! So MANY hearts she has touched over the YEARS both at work & in the community !! HUGS to all of you, May sharing  the tons of memories bring a sense of peace  ! Fitting she chose Spring to  go on her next journey .. Until we all meet up with her again.. Take care..

Marty was a very good friend of ours.  Watched out for my dad Nick.  He will miss their telephone conversations.  She would leave funny messages, if you weren’t home when she called.  She had a great sense of humor.  We became good friends during our flea market days.  Sorry for your loss, she will be greatly missed by all who knew her.  May she Rest In Peace.
