printable version

Martha J. Tyson, 72, of Bloomdale, Ohio passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on December 24, 2020. She was born on May 5, 1948 in Findlay, Ohio to the late Harold and Ree (Fries) Wright. Martha married Frank Tyson on January 15, 1966, at the Wayne United Methodist Church. They were married 48 years before Frank was called home on October 22, 2014. Surviving Martha are her sons, Troy (Jodi) Tyson of Middlefield, Travis (Angie) Tyson of Wayne, and Trent (Lisa) Tyson of Portage; grandchildren, Brandi, Tanner (Morgan), Lyndsey “Luc”, Trevor (Chelse), Taylor “Bisky”, Tegan, Thomas, and Libbie; great-grandchildren, Thayne, Saige, Maybel, Baby Boy Tyson, and Baby Girl Tyson; brothers, John (Sheryl) Wright and Rick (Nan) Wright both of Bloomdale, plus many nieces, nephews, and special friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, Harold and Ree Wright; loving husband, Frank Tyson; brothers, Mearl, Max, Harold “Junior”, Carl, and Jim Wright; sisters, Maudeen Wright and Carolyn Beard. Martha worked at Otterbein Portage Valley for 29.5 years in dietary. In her free time, you could find her going to garage sales, crafting, attending sporting events for her grandchildren, and spending time with her family and friends. Martha never knew a stranger. Her one of a kind personality will surely be missed by all who knew her. On behalf of the entire Tyson family, we would like to thank each and every person for reaching out, helping, and being there for Martha and the family. To the Hospice nurses, aids, and doctors: Thank you for doing all that you did in compassionately caring for Martha.

My aunt Martha will always have a special place in my heart.
Many is a time I bumped into her at a garage sale, she always got the best things before I even left the house. :) Aunt Martha is probably scouring Heaven now looking for the best cloud.

You all know that I usually don't know when to shut up but in this case I can't come up with the right words to tell you all how much your entire family means to Amy and I.

Your mom and dad both will always hold a very special place in our hearts as do all of you!

We pray that God lifts you all and carries you through this extremely difficult time.

All I can say she will be deeply miss from her neighbors and friends. I worked with her a long time at Opv she insisted to get those dishes clean and made sure the dish machine was always working. Both of your parents were truly great.
