Obituary for Martha A. McCall

Martha A. McCall, age 70 of Mechanicsville, went to heaven to join her husband on Wednesday, February 26, 2020 while cruising in the Caribbean. A graveside service will be held on Saturday March 14, 2020 at 10:30 A.M at Rose Hill Cemetery in Mechanicsville with Pastor Cecil Ballard officiating.

Martha was born in Cedar Rapids, IA on September 23, 1949 to parents Russell and Lorna (Pruess) Merlo. On November 16, 1966 she married her high school sweetheart in Mechanicsville and they began their family. They enjoyed weekend road trips, supporting their kids in sports, and later Ralph and Martha enjoyed spending time visiting Las Vegas.

Martha worked several jobs to help support her family before finding her calling. She worked for Lincoln and North Cedar as a school bus driver for 33 years before retiring in 2014. Martha is remembered as a strict, but caring bus driver; known for going out her way to help anyone in need. Upon retirement, Martha renewed her love for travel and cruising with her kids.

Martha was preceded in death by her parents and partner for life, her husband Ralph. Left to cherish her memory are her 3 children, Ralph LeRoy (Trish) McCall of Upper Sandusky, OH; Larry (Regina) McCall of Mechanicsville, IA; Michelle (Rod Dickey) McCall of Mechanicsville, IA; her pride and joy, her grandchildren (Justin, Joshua, AJ, Katie, Austin, and Trevor) and 5 great grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to the Mechanicsville Fire and Ambulance.

There will be a lunch after the graveside service at the Mechanicsville Elementary School served by the Mechanicsville ladies.
