Martha Alma (Defoor) O’Riley, age 94, of Temple passed from this life during the late hours of Tuesday, August 4, 2020, at a memory care facility. Martha was born in Heber Springs, Arkansas on the 17th day of May 1926.

Martha was a very caring mother, aunt, and grandmother. She loved when the family got together because it gave her chance to cook for everyone and spend time with her family. In life, she enjoyed gardening, canning and making jam from scratch. Martha was also highly creative and loved to crochet and paint beautiful artwork. Martha always put family first, including her grandchildren, which she loved dearly. Martha will be greatly missed by her friends and family.

Martha leaves behind to cherish her memory her six siblings (Myrtle, Jerrell, Donna May, Roy Lee, Eddie, and Louetta), two daughters (Erma and Louise), daughter in-law (Paula Peel), and her seven grandchildren and their spouses, and fourteen great-grandchildren.

There are currently no services scheduled at this time in an effort to keep remaining family safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Once the family is able to travel, Martha’s ashes will be spread with that of her son, Leon Peel, on the White River in Arkansas, returning them both to where they were born and raised.

Hewett- Arney Funeral Home of Temple has been with the arrangements.
