Martha Jean Musser passed away on Saturday, May 26, 2018 in a Salem Hospital after a long battle with cancer. Martha’s date of birth is not listed, as she liked to keep it a secret. She told anyone who asked that she was 21.

Martha and Laurence were known for helping anyone who needed it, including many children who lived with them over the years. They treated them all as if they were their family.

Martha is survived by her husband of 54 years, Laurence Musser and three sons, Shayne C. Musser of Salem, Shannon C. Musser and Shawn C. Musser, both of Brookings. She also had a large family including many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Martha left behind a very large family and group of friends; can’t possibly list them all.

There will be a small family gathering at a later date. If you are interested in attending please feel free to contact a family member for details.
