Martha was employed by Seneca County Health Department for many years.

Martha enjoyed singing, drawing, and painting in her free time. As a member of the Lodi Presbyterian Church, Martha would like to give a special thanks to Susan Frost and the entire church family for their support over the years.
She is survived by her daughter in law, Rebecca (John Comatis) Cherwak; her grandchildren, Casey and Molly; her two sisters; and one niece and one nephew. Martha was preceded in death by her husband Charles Cherwak; and her son Charlie Cherwak.
A special thanks would like to be shared for Martha’s caregivers Kimberly Woodard and daughters, Cheyenne and Savannah.
