Martha “Marty” E. Lawler 4/12/1955-10/30/2021 of Albuquerque, NM went home to Jesus after a brief illness. 
Marty was born in Bloomington, Ind. to Beecher and Mildred Crichfield.  She was the youngest of seven siblings. 
Marty loved deeply: her family, her friends, and her community.  She adored her husband of 41 years, Tom.  Recently, they completed a bucket list trip to Yellowstone National Park. 
Marty enjoyed being with her children.  She was always willing to go to a concert, dinner, the ABQ BioPark, with her son, TJ, and daughter-in-law, Kim.  She went to see her daughter, Keriann, in Denver, Co. several times a year.  She loved attending plays and traveling.  She and Keriann traveled around Colorado as well as to New York City and Walt Disney World.

Marty loved her flowers and birds, creating an outdoor oasis she savored.  Her puppy, Rowan, and her grandpup’s, Mesa and Max, also gave her great joy.  She is reunited with her beloved

Marty was preceded in death by her father, Beecher, her mother, Mildred, and three brothers: Glenn, Joe, and Eddie. 
Marty is survived by her husband, Tom, son TJ and his wife, Kim, daughter, Keriann, sister, Alice and her partner, John, and brothers, Tim and his wife, Sherry, and John, as well as extended family and friends.
