Martha was survived by her sister Lucene (Bill) Udulutch and her two nephews, Mark (Heather) and John (Tara) Gunderson.

Leon was an accomplished manufacturing supervisor most of his career and he and Martha, who worked in the office, met while working at Greenheck in Wausau, Wisconsin. They built their home in Mayville where they enjoyed working in the area and eventually retiring. They enjoyed a quiet life in Mayville overlooking the river. They loved to cook, travel, garden, and watch all the variety of birds they fed. They spent every waking moment near each other and left this life together.

A private family funeral will be held in Mayville in June.
