Mrs. Martha Frances Gilreath Crump, 95, of Indian Trail, passed away Tuesday, October 20, 2020 at her daughter, Barbara's, home in Pageland, SC.

In addition to her parents and among those waiting for her in heaven are her brother James Franklin Gilreath III, husband, James B. Crump, daughter Louise Crump Griffin, grandsons Jamie Capps and Matthew Gaddis and great granddaughter Cecily Johnson Sherbo.
She was thankful for her large and loving family who celebrate the fact that she is now with her Creator.

Martha was known by her family as a Prayer Warrier who lived her life selflessly. Her life was a sermon as she demonstrated her trust in God in her daily life. Her firm belief in her heavenly Father supported her in her daily struggles and gave her a peace that she believed and taught was available to all of us. Her sweet smile, her touch and her kisses will be missed. She was truly an inspiration and never met a stranger. She loved her family, enjoyed reunions and holiday gatherings. She loved to read and go on mountain vacations.
The family would like to thank the Pruitt Health, Union Pointe, where she lived for five years and Agape Care, South Carolina for their caring for her at home during her final days.
