Born November 22, 1929 in Hastings, PA, she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Mary (Kovach) Kurtz, both of whom had immigrated from Hungary.  She was a member of St. Monica’s Roman Catholic Church.  Margaret had a beautiful smile, enjoyed being with her family and was always active and eager to go out and shop, go to movies or participate in other activities. As a housewife and mother, Margaret loved to cook, bake, work in her flower garden and play cards.  She especially enjoyed reading to and being with her grandchildren and more recently, watching videos of her great grandchildren.  She loved animals and watching birds.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Robert A. Martin, Jr., a retired Lieutenant for the Pittsburgh Firefighters; and ten brothers and sisters.

She is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
