Martha D. (Anderson) Blounts, fondly known as Marty and Mom, of Raynham, passed away on July 15, 2020 at the age of 90. She was the daughter of the late Georgianna (Tuttle) and John Anderson.

Marty was born and raised in Pennsylvania and graduated Swathmore High School in 1948.

Marty was an amazing seamstress who worked in Las Vegas at Caesars Palace making clothes; she made costumes for the Mummers in the Mummers Day Parade in Philadelphia, PA, as well as lovingly making beautiful clothes and crafts for her children and grandchildren.

Marty married Joe Blounts in 1949. They were married for 70 beautiful years, and together they lovingly raised six children. 

Marty was such a kind, beautiful, classy, fun and funny lady who put her family before herself always. She loved to be around people and made many friends everywhere she went. Marty’s favorite things to do were dancing with her beloved husband, Joe, and being with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. We are so grateful and blessed to have had her in our lives every day that we did. She will be missed beyond words.
