Martha Ann Hemphill Tate

Martha Ann Hemphill Tate “Aunt Bootsie,” of Marion, North Carolina, passed away Tuesday, April 26, 2022 at Caldwell UNC Health Care.

 

Having just celebrated her 88th birthday, she was born on April 24, 1934 in McDowell County to the late Luther and Hessie Lynch Hemphill.

 

Martha retired from Broyhill after many years. She was a hard worker who enjoyed cooking, playing cards, fishing, traveling, and working with her flowers in her yard. Martha will be remembered as a tough lady who was one of a kind. Her family and friends meant the world to her.

Survivors include her daughters, Gloria Carson and Valerie Moore; 13 grandchildren; 19 great grandchildren; 8 great-great grandchildren; and her special sister and best friend, Katie Logan.
