Martha Lou Hasler

CLAY CITY — Martha Lou Hasler, 85, of Clay City, was called home to Glory, Feb. 7, 2013, at Union Hospital following complications of a stroke. She was born in Champagne County, Ill., Sept. 27, 1927, the daughter of Albert and Jennie (Bond) Greenwood. In her youth she attended Merom Elementary school in Merom, Ind.   Martha graduated from Jefferson Township Coal City High School in 1946, where she was a valued member of the girls basketball team. She studied at House of James Beauty College, in Indianapolis, as a beautician. She owned Martha's Beauty Shop, in Clay City, for many years.

Martha enjoyed making crafts where she won many ribbons through the local and state fairs. She was an avid member of Heritage Baptist Church in Coal City, where she loved attending church and Sunday School. She may be remembered most for her wonderful cooking ability which she shared in several cookbooks. She spent her quiet time reading the Bible and watching birds.  

Martha was a member of the Gideon's Ladies Auxiliary and a former chaplain.  Martha shared her love of Christ through Prison Ministry, where she wrote numerous letters to inmates sharing the Word of God.

In addition to her parents, Albert and Jennie Greenwood, she was preceded in death by three brothers, Ralph Greenwood, Edward “Herman” Greenwood, and Donald Greenwood.
