Antwerp

Martha Louise Straley of Antwerp, Ohio, passed away Wednesday, June 28, 2023 in Fort Wayne, Indiana at age 57.

She was a dedicated wife and loving mother. She found value in objects others didn’t, making herself into one of eBay’s first PowerSellers, and used her creativity to host elaborate Fourth of July, Christmas, and graduation parties where many cherished family memories were made.

Martha is survived by her husband, Rudy; five children; and her siblings: Paul, Philip, Peter, & Joe Trzynka, Linda Brown, Mary Jewel, & Liz Weller.
