SOUTH THOMASTON – Martha E. Alley, 67, beloved mother of Jeremy Alley, died unexpectedly, Thursday, May 23, 2019 at her home.

Born in Rockland, November 15, 1951, she was the daughter of Arthur, Sr. and Lucy Rackliff Alley. Martha had an extraordinary youth playing with her cousins and a menagerie of unique pets at her Grammie’s house. Many comedic stories of her youth in Spruce Head have been told over the years. She was educated locally, graduating from Rockland High School.

Martha began her career at Van Baalen’s. A talented seamstress, she could alter and mend any tailoring challenge in her neighborhood. Later in life, as a woman dedicated to her work family she would often share her wonderful cooking and fabric skills as Production Manager at Studio 412 in Rockland.

Martha loved all children as if they were her own. Oh what a joy she had when her beloved only son had not one, but two children for her to be Grammie to!

Above all, Martha was one of a kind who loved everyone with all of her selfless heart and was deeply loved in return. She will be sadly missed by all who loved her.

Martha is survived by her loving son, Jeremy Alley and his wife Anastasia of South Thomaston; her beloved grandchildren, Cyrus and Geneva Alley both of South Thomaston; her sisters, Darlene Cocke and her husband David of Tenants Harbor, Wendy Roberts and her husband Brett of Spokane, WA; her brother Arthur Alley, Jr. and his wife Pennie of South Thomaston; her step-brothers, Gary Judecki, Rocky Judecki of Spruce Head; seven nieces and nephews Ben, Allie, Lucas, Allison, Renee, Rachel and Robert; as well as many close friends and family.

A celebration of Martha’s life and potluck picnic will be held at 12:00 PM (Noon) on Sunday, June 23, 2019 at ‘Grammie’s Park’ on Waterman Beach Road, South Thomaston. In the case of rain, the alternate location will be at the Spruce Head Community Building.

Arrangements are in the care of Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins Funeral Home, 110 Limerock Street, Rockland.

I have the memories of Martha in high school. She was nominated as Ms. Betty Crocker, amazing talent very young. I also had the pleasure of watching her entertain at Schofield White Park on Main St. in Rockland, there was an old house across the street from the park with a big front porch (Martha's stage). She would put on shows, sing and dance and of course others would join. Great story teller, always smiling. She will be missed here but will still continue her talents and love at home.
Rest in Peace my friend.

I had the pleasure of working with Martha many many many years ago at a clothing factory in Nobleboro, she was the shining light in a tough environment. She was honest, kind, always had a way to brighten any situation and she was loved by all, including me. I moved out of the state after leaving the job where we both worked and regret not staying in touch. She talked about Jeremy all the time and I was so happy to hear that she got her grandbabies. I know she will be missed my many...

So sad to see of Martha's passing. We met in the early 70's. When we would see each other out and about it was like no time had gone by just standing there talking. Martha was such a kind person. She adored being a mother and grandmother. Peacefully rest old friend. Sympathy to family and friends.
