After they could no longer run the store Mom went to work at JC Penny’s outlet in Pinellas Park.

She has always been a very devoted, supportive, loving, giving Wife, Mom, Sister, Aunt, Nana, Great Nana, & Friend.

Marty was very proud of her Children, Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren, nothing made her happier than to watch them achieve their life goals. She was Blessed to have attended many Graduations, Weddings, Baby Showers and always looked forward to our many Family gatherings, Easter, Christmas, Thanksgiving and Birthday celebrations. She also loved our relaxing sunset get togethers. Some of her favorite times at the Beach were staying in a Condo with her Sisters, and on Mother’s Day so we could all be together.

 To top that off she had (34) Great Grandchildren. – She remembered each of their Birthdays by heart.

Mom was Beautiful inside and out, witty, and a true Blessing to all. She knew she had been Blessed with many extra years of life. She thanked God for the time she had. She had a big heart so full of love, enough Love to share with her whole Family. She prayed for each of her Children, Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren. Along with her Siblings, and their families. She always wanting the best for everyone.

Our hearts will never be the same, the void is huge. The legacy she left behind is unmeasurable. I pray it will remain in each of us. She taught us to Love the Lord with all of our heart, to be kind to all, don’t let time pass you by, make your tomorrows today, find your Blessings in life, make a positive difference, show the love you have for each other, don’t have regrets, and most of all to have unconditional Love.

Your job well done Mom, may you rest in Peace

    Mom, you have been my best Friend in life. I couldn’t have ask for a better Mom or Friend. I will miss our daily one on one visits, your encouraging words, you beautiful smile and your love for our Family. You have always made me push myself to be a good person, to help others with love and not to expect anything in return. I will be sure to live out your legacy and make you proud of the life I live. I love you so much Mom and I know we will be together again.

  • Aimee Bonfiglio says:

    Nana, our hearts are empty and full at the same time. Empty because you are no longer here, but full because of all the love you have given over the years. You were always there to listen, help, give advice and love. I regret missing so much time with you due to the pandemic, but your health was far more important. I am grateful for the BIG BROTHER episodes, the manicure time, Sunday lifetime watching, and texting we shared while watching BB23 when I couldn’t be there. You are the strongest woman I have ever known and you have distilled that into me and I will always be there for my children just as you were. Family First, fun later. Be a parent first, and friend second. You are so deeply missed, and I will see you on the other side. Give everyone up there hugs from the Diez Squad. Love you ♥️

  • Karen On-The-Hill says:

    Aunt Marty, I know you are dancing in Heaven with Uncle Dick under the care of our precious Lord Jesus Christ. You left a wonderful legacy of Love on Earth. Until we meet again…❤️🙏

  • Matt Cole says:

    I have never met a more selfless, giving person. Her life was about her family and how she could make their lives better, and that she did everyday. I especially appreciate the love she gave to my children, as she did all her Grandchildren, and how she made each of them feel special for who they are. What she meant to others can only be measured in the void now left in hearts by her absence. My life certainly was blessed by Marty being in it, and she will be missed. Well done they good and faithful servant…Rest in Peace. 💔😪

  • Tom Bickta says:

    What a beautiful obituary! Marty and Dick were the best of friends to everyone, and I was fortunate to work with Dick, who taught me everything I know, at McGuire AFB and be included among their friends. I always felt welcome in their home and enjoyed spending time with the family every week. This never comes at a good time, but both Marty and Dick enjoyed a very full life and provided a great life for their family. I take comfort knowing they are together and out of pain. God bless all of you and your families.

  • John and Cheryl Deakins says:

  • Chealsie says:

    Nana- I will miss our talks,texts and sending you flowers every birthday. I keep getting reminders about your skylight photos.You were always so supportive of me,and Im so sad you’re gone.I remember all the times we spent together and all the memories I had growing up. You used to buy me a rootbeer slushy when we visited grandpa at the mall,and when you would wake up early we would watch the sunrise together when I was little and watching the golden girls and I love Lucy and continued memories as an adult. I remember visiting one day as an adult and talking about your childhood and growing up.I just sat and listened to you and grandpa for hours.Your sense of humor will be missed as well as your laugh and love you gave us. I thank my mom for sending me down every year to FL and for you to have me stay for months. You and grandpas house was the house to be at,and no matter who owns that house,that will always be the grandfather tree,and it will always be the memories you gave all of us and the memories we all as a family gave one another. I know we all will continue to keep your memory alive in our hearts.

    Mrs. Tatro was one of the nicest persons I’ve had the pleasure of knowing during my life. I can never remember a time she was not smiling. I truly was blessed to have gotten to know her 35 years ago.
