Martha "Marty" Sally Guhl Tome, born on July 10, 1941, passed away on June 21, 2019, from Alzheimer's disease complications. She was preceded in death by her husband, Bob. Marty is survived by her three children, Jeff (Nancy), Cindy (Mart), and Debby (Noah); two grandchildren, Alex and Lily; niece, Karen; and grand-nephew, Ryan. Marty was vibrant, hardworking, and compassionate. She was an avid reader, walker, camper, and traveler (with Bob). She loved the beach. While Bob was at sea, Marty ran a tight ship at home. She was a resourceful domestic engineer and teacher's aide, a phenomenal baker, seamstress, and a master of ironing. Every Christmas, Marty enjoyed making and sharing Christmas Sand Tarts and biscotti with family and many friends. She was devoted to her community and civic organizations wherever she lived. Marty spent decades as a dedicated volunteer in local literacy campaigns, teaching many people to read. She was also a San Antonio Basura Bash organizer for many years.
