Martha W. Fields

June 8, 1927 — August 9, 2022

Martha Whorton Fields of Hiram, Ga, passed away peacefully August 9th, 2022, surrounded by her loving family. Funeral Service will be held at 1:00 pm on Monday, August 15, 2022, at West Cobb Funeral Home and Crematory Chapel in Marietta, GA with Dr. Richard Walker officiating. Interment will follow at Crest Lawn Memorial Park in Atlanta, Georgia.

Martha was born June 8th, 1927 in Cherokee County, Alabama to Bessie Bennett and Milford Clyde Whorton Sr. Her family relocated to Atlanta when she was a teenager where she met her future husband Donnis Fields. They married November 23, 1946. They began a family welcoming Joy, Donna and Susan. Martha was a hard worker in and out of the home. She had a strong work ethic from growing up on a farm and was always resourceful. She carried those skills into motherhood raising a family and later into her career in the business world. She was active in her church, singing in the choir and serving others throughout her life through her gift of cooking and hospitality, living out her faith in the Lord Jesus whom she loved. She was extremely talented, crafty, an excellent cook, gardener, and seamstress. She was a little bit competitive, playful, spunky and just a little mischievous at times. She was nurturing, kind, gracious and humble, never wanting to be in the spotlight.

Most of all she was loving and boy, did she love her family! Countless celebrations centered around her cooking and the dining room table whether it was a holiday, birthday or some other special occasion. Many memories have been made around one of her fabulous desserts that only she could make her special way. Whether you knew her as wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt or friend she will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.

She is preceded in death by her daughter, Susan Fields.

She is survived by her husband Donnis, to whom she was happily married for over 75 years. Daughters: Joy Deal (Dennis) and Donna Smith (Ronnie). Grandchildren: Tonja Roberts (Jamie), Ronell Smith (Holly), Daniel Smith (Melissa), Jason Smith (Shannon). Great-grandchildren: Holly, Riley, Levi, Bryson, Amy-Grace, Lydia, Schaeffer, Edith, Janie, and Brayden. She was devoted to her family, and dearly loved her husband, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

The family will receive friends on Monday, August 15, 2022 from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm at West Cobb Funeral Home and Crematory in Marietta, GA. Online guest book at www.westcobbfuneralhome.com .
