May 25, 1919 - September 10, 2017
Martha H. Hauber of Palmetto passed away peacefully September 10, 2017 among loved ones.
Martha was born on May 25, 1919 in Washington, D.C., the third child of George and Grace

Martha grew up in Virginia and as an active Girl Scout was in an honor guard for Lou Henry
Hoover, wife of the President. At this event she was invited to tea with Mrs. Hoover in the White
House. She graduated from George Washington University with a BA in zoology.

Martha and Edwin N. Hauber married on September 6, 1940. In October 1954 they and their three
children moved to Bradenton in the family's boat. Martha enjoyed supporting her children with
leadership roles in Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts. The family was active at Trinity United Methodist
Church where she taught 3rd grade Sunday School for 25 years. Martha worked for Florida Health
& Family Services helping foster children, doing adoptions and conducting custody studies.

Her life-long interest was family genealogy. She authored one book on her Hamilton family and one
on the Hauber family with research going into the 1500s. She was a 75 year member of the
Daughters of the American Revolution and a Regent of the local Chapter. She also held
membership in the FL Society of Mayflower Descendants, Colonial Dames of the XVII Century and
the National Huguenot Society. In her later years she volunteered at the Palmetto Public Library.

Martha was predeceased by her husband Edwin, her brother Robert Hamilton and her sister
Dorothy (Hamilton) Miller and is survived by her brother Charles Hamilton; her children Nancy
Valenti, Andrew (Teresa), and Martin (Peggy); her grandchildren Andrew, Edward, Michael,
Heather, Stephen, Benjamin, Timothy, Jennifer, Julie, and Daniel; her stepgrandson William; and
her 14 great-grandchildren. A memorial service was held at Trinity UMC (Bradenton) on Saturday,
September 30, 2017. Suggested organizations for memorial donations are the DAR and Trinity
UMC. Condolences for the family may be given online at
