Martha “Marty” M. Reid, of Brookfield, Ohio, unexpectedly passed away on Saturday, October 21, 2023, in the Emergency Room of Sharon Regional Hospital. She was 84.

A 1957 graduate from Hickory High School, she worked primarily as a secretary in the administrative office of the former Warren General Hospital, also known as St. Joseph’s Medical Center, Warren, Ohio. She retired in 1999 after dedicating 15 years of service to the company.

In her spare time, she enjoyed painting, crafts, being ornery, traveling, camping, boating, water skiing, swimming, and spending time with friends & family. However, being with her family, especially her grandchildren, warmed her heart the most.
