Martha Dawn Armstrong, 73, of Napoleon passed away on Friday, Feb. 19, 2021, at St. Vincent Medical Center of Toledo.

She was born on Dec. 11, 1947, to Rodney and Dorothy (Miller) Wilson. Martha attended Frankfort Wesleyan Bible College. On Oct. 4, 1969, she married the love of her life, Mack Armstrong, he preceded her in death on March 23, 2014. They shared a wonderful 44 years together and she enjoyed being a pastor’s wife. She was a very active member of First Baptist Church of Napoleon. She worked as a activities director and the life enrichment director at Fairlawn Haven of Archbold for 30 years, retiring in 2014. She also worked at Class of Napoleon for a few years.

Martha was dedicated to her faith and her family. She and Mack served one term as missionaries in El Salvador. She enjoyed spending time with the ladies of the church playing cards and board games. She also like crafting, sewing, gardening, cooking and traveling. The one thing she loved the most was being with her family. She was a proud mother, mamaw, sister and friend. She will be remembered for kind heart and gentle spirit. To say she will be missed is an understatement.
