MARTHA ADAM
8/12/1922 – 3/24/2014
Cedar Rapids
Martha Adam, 91, of Cedar Rapids, passed away Monday, March 24, 2014, at home surrounded by her loving family.
She was the daughter of Albert and Emilie Rehm, deceased. She was born in Kristburg, Germany.
She is the sister to 11 siblings, Bertha, Gustav, Albert, Ida, Ferdinand, Otto, Rudolf, Marie, (Martha), Erich, Oskar and Alfred; widow of Lawrence Adam.

The wonderful Mother to Darnell, Colorado, Karen, Iowa, Diane (deceased) Jeffrey, Wisconsin, Mitchell and Michael (deceased); grandmother to Ryan Bell, Iowa, and mother-in-law to Gregory Bell, Iowa.
She was more than this. She loved cooking and baking, all kinds of crafting and crocheting. She had a green thumb when it came to planting flowers and a garden and loved indoor plants. She loved to make people smile and laugh, loved getting dressed up for any occasion, and when she walked into a room, she put her right hand on her hip, gave a little pivot, left foot in front of her, her left hand in the air and said “Here I am!” Everyone just loved her. She was just so cute.

She always was willing to help others, she was the strongest woman we have ever known; no matter what tragedy in life she had to face, she pulled herself together and just did it. She was forgiving, spunky and stubborn too! She loved God and believed in prayer and Angels and we know she is with Him and her family and friends and all our little dogs she loved so much. She is happy and whole once again.
We miss you, but know you are watching and protecting us from above now. We all have so many happy memories, and that is the way it should be. A life well lived. All our love Mom.
In lieu of flowers, if you want to honor her, she requested gifts in her memory to Last Hope Animal Rescue and Critter Crusaders to help all the dogs that need help.

Untitled-1
We have lost a good soul today. Peg Palma, Critter Crusaders Fund Raising Chair and devoted animal advocate, lost her battle with metastatic ocular melanoma at 11:22am. Thursday February 13th. Her husband Dick, step daughter Darla, brother Doug, Bear her beloved Yorkie and Jan Erceg were by her side as she took her last breath.
Thanks so much to those who came to see Peg this past weekend at the hospital. She had a good few days and enjoyed seeing her friends and family. Peg’s battle started last May with a diagnosis of metastisis to the liver. Ocular Melanoma is very rare and the only treatment options are drugs and procedures obtained through clinical trials. She was first diagnosed 8 years ago but without metastatic involvement. Her treatment started last Sept. at the Holden Cancer Center and until 3 weeks ago, Peg remained in good health and spirits.
peg2For those of you who did not know her well, Peg had a sarcastic, dry sense of humor, creativity beyond anyone I have ever known and a heart that was bigger than the Grand Canyon. There was room in there for those in need, both human and animal and her generosity was a part of who she was…low key, behind the scenes but always ready to make a difference in lives that were challenged. Peg loved Critter Crusaders immeasurably and she has left her mark on all that we have done, and all that we will do. She will always be with us.
Thanks so much to Doug Fuller and Sue Hartung for meeting Peg at the house yesterday when she returned home from the hospital for her final night and to Jana Crane and DeAnn Brannaman who had planned to see her today. Kandi Herb, Deb Bowers and Jennifer Heims came over last night to spend time with Peg. It was a very good night. She spoke on the phone with Michelle Woods who was in New Orleans on business and they expressed their love for each other. Wonderful memories that she could tuck in her heart for her journey home.
God be with you Peg. Until we meet again, dear friend.

Every night in my dream
I see you, I feel you
That is how I know you go on

Far across the distance
And spaces between us
You have come to show you go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you’re here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

Love can touch us one time
And last for a lifetime
And never let go till we’re gone

Love was when I loved you
One true time I hold to
In my life we’ll always go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you’re here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

You’re here, there’s nothing I fear
And I know that my heart will go on
We’ll stay forever this way
You are safe in my heart
And my heart will go on and on
