Obituary for Martha Kirkpatrick

On Friday, May 21st, 2021, Martha Kirkpatrick, loving mother of two children, passed away at the age of 88. Martha was born in Kerrville, TX on January 23, 1933 to Jesse and Edna (Wellborn) Hanes. She was preceded in death by her father, Jesse Hanes, mother, Edna Hanes, and her husband, Sam Kirkpatrick.

Martha is survived by her daughter, Roseanne Miske, son, Brian Kirkpatrick, and grandchildren Marren Kirkpatrick, Sela Miske, Sean Kirkpatrick, and Liam Miske.

She received her teaching degree from North Texas State University in 1955 and taught elementary school music for almost 40 years. On June 17th, 1955, she married Sam Kirkpatrick in Dallas, TX. They raised a daughter, Roseanne, and a son, Brian. They were married for 58 years, until Sam’s death.

Martha had a passion for music and children. She combined those two loves in her music classroom, and by teaching private piano lessons well into her late 70’s. She was so proud that all four of her grandchildren play musical instruments.

After living in Dallas for many years, Martha and Sam relocated to Monument, Colorado to be closer to their beloved children and grandchildren. She was a member of Monument Community Presbyterian Church and was passionate about singing in the church choir. She loved dogs, especially Dachschunds, and donated money throughout her life to the ASPCA. Donations can may be made in her name to ASPCA at
