Martha Beitz

Obituary of Martha H. Beitz

Martha Helen (Kramer) Beitz, 89, Our Beloved Mother passed away on Aug. 16, 2019. She went to sleep peacefully after several months of illness. Martha was the Greatest Mother and Grandmother anyone could ask for. Although, we will miss her so much, we are glad she is now at peace. We want to thank her daughter Karla for the many months of care at home and Encompass Hospice for the great care.

Martha and Ralph were from American Falls, ID., where they had grocery stores and motels, later the family moved to Shoshone, ID where they had the Southside grocery store and Hotel and Theater. In 1983, they moved to Ontario, OR., where they had the Easy Access Motel until they retired.

Martha was preceded in death by her beloved husband of fifty years, Ralph W. Beitz, their son Ralph W. Beitz Jr., and baby girl Helen Ann Beitz. Martha is survived by her daughter Mary Lou Wright of TN and her husband Steven Wright, daughter Kristi M. Beitz, and daughter Karla R. Jones. Martha has twelve grandchildren and eleven great grandchildren, who were her pride and joy.

Martha loved her Sunday’s at Bingo with her dear friends Barb, Peggy, and many other locals.

Martha enjoyed many trips to TN and PA to visit family and many grandchildren, she also enjoyed trips to Jackpot and Moscow and loved her yearly trips to American Falls for her class reunions. All of these trips made her happy and brought her joy.
