Martha Marie Cartwright

February 1, 1938 - October 17, 2020

            Martha Marie Cartwright, 82, of Wadsworth, Texas passed away October 17, 2020.  She was born February 1, 1938 in Wharton, Texas to the late Wilber Chambers and Alma Rodgers Chambers.

            Her husband of 58 years, Travis Lee Cartwright preceded her in death on February 21, 2020.

            Martha took a part-time position at the Wadsworth Post Office in 1978. She became postmaster in 1984. During her 26 years at the post office, she never met a stranger. She loved meeting people and the post office was the perfect place for that. Her big grin will surely be remembered by all that knew her.

            Survivors include two children, daughter, Dana Robinson and her husband Russell of Bay City, and son, Jimmy Cartwright and his wife Beanee of Houston; grandchildren, Kelly Robinson, Eric Robinson, Stephanie Hooks, Kimberly Hooks, and Jordan Masters; and siblings, Wanda Rayburn, Delores DelGiorno, and Dennis Chambers. She is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews.

            The family has chosen a private interment service.
