Martha L. Richards, 87, of Clarksburg, WV (Stealey Community) passed away on Tuesday, May 28, 2019 at her home surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Marion County on February 28, 1932, daughter of the late Charles E. “Jim” Compton and Mabel L. (Moran) Reeves.

In addition to her parents Martha was preceded in death by her husband John S. Richards in 1975; one daughter, Sharon L. Embry in 2015; brother, Charles E. Compton II; sister, Alfreda M. Dearth; half-brother, Jeffrey Compton; and two sons-in-law, Paul Embry and Bruce Cross.

Martha is survived by five children: Martha A. Brunetti (Frank) of Center Point, Thomas E. Richards of Clarksburg, John E. Richards of Clarksburg, Sheila L. Richards of Clarksburg, and Johnna A. Hoban of Clarksburg; brother, Wiliam M. “Bill” Compton of Philippi; half brother, James “Jimmy” Compton of Bridgeport; half sister, Jennifer Corton (Jamie) of Bridgeport; 13 grandchildren: Patrick, Jessica, LaRessa, Teresa, Joshua, Cherra Dawn, Elicia, Methius, Michael, Austin, Katherine “Kati,” Bethany, and Corwin; and 16 great-grandchildren: Gabriella, Emmalea, Aaron, Parker, Trinity, Tavares, Logan, Madysen, Hannah, Halynn, Michael Jr., Layla, Norah, Connor, Matthew, and Liam.

Martha loved God, going to church and her church family. She took great pride in her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren and was an amazing mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother to them all. She looked forward to the day she would be reunited with her loving husband “Johnny.”
