Martha Gaston

Martha was born March 28, 1933, at home in Sibley, Louisiana, to Almer and Ruby (Holstead) Davis. She graduated Salutatorian from Choudrant High school and then from Louisiana Business college which prepared her for serving several businesses and organizations throughout her life including Community Trust Bank, O’Neal gas, Choudrant Appliance (as co-owner), the Quota Club and the American Business Women’s Association. She was also very active at Alabama Presbyterian Church, serving as an elder, deacon and treasurer for the Women of the Church.

Two of Martha’s greatest joys in life were serving her church and loving her family. She loved combining the two with large and delicious family Sunday lunches after church complete with cheese potatoes, “odd salad” and Miss Ruby sweet tea. To be followed by visiting with family and friends well into the afternoon. In her later years, she took up crocheting; mostly hats and scarves to help keep friends and strangers alike warm during the cooler months.

Martha was preceded in death by her parents, four siblings and her husband of 63 years, Aubrey Gill Gaston.

She is survived by her sister, Mary Sue Davis; four children and their spouses, Terri (Garry) Gaston Neal, Mark Gaston, Timothy (Lori) Gaston, and Amanda Gaston Bowman; four grandchildren, Kelly Neal Williams (Matt Criss), Katie Neal (James Wheeler), Matthew Gaston (Katy) and Molly Gaston; and five great grandchildren, Aubrey Claire Williams, Avery Catherine Williams, Mason Gaston Lynch, Matthew Augustus Gaston and Sofia Grace Gaston.

Visitation will be prior to the graveside service starting at 12:30 – 2 p.m. at Alabama Presbyterian Church; masks will be required, please follow social distancing guidelines.

Memorials can be made to Alabama Presbyterian Church at 2091 Highway 145, Choudrant, Louisiana, 71227.
