Growing  Up
My life started in Feb of 1949 as Martha Jane Wheat in the small rural community of Boydsville, AR. I was born in my grandmothers home and named after the wife of the couple  who sold my Granny the house. At the age of 2 my Granny packed all of us, me, mom, 2 aunts and an uncle and moved us north to Pontiac, MI so everyone could  get a better job... After a few years living in apartments and  working at S.S. Kresge's she bought a house. My mom soon remarried, my sister was born and we moved to Drayton Plains, MI where we stayed till I completed 6th grade. Then back to AR till my 10th grade when we returned to MI and I spent my last 2 years of school with my Granny then 2 more years until I married....
