Martha went to school in Corbin, Kansas, graduating form the 8th grade. At the age of 17 Martha went to work helping in the homes of people who were sick, nursing them back to health and cleaning houses too.

On August 18, 1940, Martha married Harry Cink in the Rev. Sankeys’ home in Caldwell, Kansas. This union was blessed with a daughter Martha Jo Ann. She and Harry farmed until they retired in 1973 and moved to Caldwell.

Martha was preceded in death by her parents, Henry and Lena Franks and her husband Harry.

She is survived by her daughter Martha Jo Ann Roundtree and her husband Glendale; granddaughter Glena Ann McCormac and great-granddaughter Kelsie McCormac all of Derby, Kansas; several brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.

Martha Jo Ann, So sorry to hear about your Mother, my Aunt Martha, passing away. She had a very good life with you all, and I always looked forward to your phone calls and getting to talk to my Aunt Martha. She was the sweetest, caring, and devoted Aunt to me. I do remember, when I was little, I stayed with Aunt Martha and Uncle Harry, while my folks were on a trip as I got car sick. Remeber sitting on Uncle Harrys lap and turning the catlog pages, while he held it. Those memories will be with us forever. Aunt Martha is with Uncle Harry now and no longer hurting. God Bless you all and will be thinking of you. With our bad storms coming this way, sorry we can't be there. A long trip from here in Buffalo,Mo. Prayers to you all and the family.

I am so sorry for your loss of such a special Lady in my life as I remember way back when me and my family would visit there farm when Uncle Harry was a live and they were so happily married. I will never forget those days. Wonderful Memories of my brother, sister, and I playing around the farm. You just never forget those times. Then oh, did I not tell you how good Aunt Martha cooked. We would go there and stay like for dinner and i would eat so much my belly would get so big, but then she would bring out the desert, I could never pass up her desert. You never knew what it was it could be cobbler, pie, or cake it did not matter it was always so good. She will be missed dearly, but always be in my heart and Memories will always be with me.

I pray for the for the Family and my Mother!

Hi Martha Jo Ann and Glendale,

I am so sorry to learn of the death of your mother. I have known your parents for many years, and of course my late husband knew them for a long time also. They were wonderful people and I have good memories of them. Since I had lost contact with you, I didn't know that you had moved to Derby. Sending my love to all.
