You broke the mold for Aunts. Your family, especially all your nephews and nieces will remember you fondly and miss you tremendously!
Martha is survived by her sister, Susan Kleymeyer Rutan; and her nieces and nephews, Marcia Rutan Bulsara, James William Rutan, Lilia Kleymeyer Johnstone, Richard Alan Kleymeyer Jr., Brent Matthew Rutan, Cynthia Kleymeyer Maxwell, Amy Kleymeyer Ramos and Kerry Kleymeyer Riedel; as well as many grand-nieces and nephews; and first cousins Cliff, Chuck and Bob Kleymeyer and Bob Burk.
She was preceded in death by her mother and father, Ralph T. Kleymeyer Sr. and Mildred Seitz Kleymeyer; and her brothers, Ralph T. Kleymeyer, Jr. (Ted) and Richard Alan Kleymeyer Sr.
Most of all, Martha will be remembered by her family as the quintessential aunt. There was rarely a significant event that she missed. Martha was always there to lend an ear and offered any support she was able to provide. She made it a point to spend one-on-one time with each young descendent as they grew, and made each one feel they were special and loved.
Martha will be interred in Evansville, Ind., at her family plot on a date to be determined. Her family would like to express their gratitude to Hospice and the many caregivers at Brookdale Westlake Hills. Any memorial gifts can be directed to Hospice at Brookdale or M.D. Anderson Hospital, of which Martha was a dedicated contributor.
