Martha Calaway

Martha Faye Calaway, 82, of Beaumont, died Saturday, April 3, 2021, at Silsbee Oaks Health Care. She was born on October 12, 1938, in Beaumont, to Effie Rao and Nelson Sellers.

    So sorry to hear about the passing of my dear friend Martha. Unfortunately, I just heard about her passing and missed the gathering earlier today. My sweet, sweet Martha..I loved you like a sister and pray that you are at peace. Julie and Paige- your mom was very special and I pray that you also have some peace from this grief.
