Easley

Martha Faulkner Heath, 80 of Easley, South Carolina went to be with Jesus on July 16, 2023.

She is survived by her husband of 62 years Mr. Courtney E. (Buddy) Heath Jr. and her children Mrs. Heather Heath Adams (Bryan) of Summerville, SC, and the Rev. Courtney E. Heath, III of Easley, SC. Martha was preceded in death by her parents, Mr. William Rogers Faulkner and Mrs. Francine Prickett Faulkner, as well as her best friend and sister Mrs. Patricia Faulkner Collins.

Mrs. Heath attended Welcome #2 School (later named Crestone), and graduated from Carolina High School (1960) and Draughon’s Business College in Greenville, SC. She retired from Tanner Companies Inc. in Rutherfordton, NC where she served for 25 years in many positions from buyer to Executive Assistant to the President.

Martha’s passions were gardening and serving her friends and community by volunteering in various capacities at her church, Rock Springs Baptist Church. Her abiding faith and the prayers of many allowed her to continue living a beautiful and love-filled life following her diagnosis of ALS in 2013.
