Martha Clara DeLancey Blair, born March 4, 1931 to Martha Ballew DeLancey and William Whitley DeLancey of Greensboro, North Carolina.

She completed business college with honors and began a career with Home Life Insurance Co. of New York, later becoming Office Manager. Martha loved traveling and camping with Homer in the USA and Canada until his untimely death in 1993.

For many years, Martha served on committees of Mount Pisgah Methodist Church. After a full life, she rests beside Homer at Guilford Memorial Park.
