Martha Gail LaForest, 64, of Kingsley, passed away on August 2, 2018 at Munson Medical Center surrounded by her loving family. She was born on December 17, 1953 in Alabama to the late James Donaldson and Mary Brown. Martha married the love of her life, William LaForest on December 27, 1971. She was a wonderful mother to three beautiful girls. Martha loved being a homemaker, where she would dance and dance with her grand babies. She was known as "Nonnie" to everyone who loved her. She was a loving wife and mother and always showed kindness and love to everyone she crossed paths with. Her home has an open-door policy to anyone and everyone. Martha had a smile that could light up any room, with a contagious laugh. She loved the outdoors where she could soak up the sun, go boating and plant her flowers. Martha loved to enjoy Coke Cola in a can her straw, play rummy, scrabble, and enjoyed watching her westerns and soaps. Her patience, loyalty, honesty, sense of humor, and smile will never be forgotten. Anytime you see a monarch butterfly think of Matha Gail. Martha is survived by her loving husband, William J. LaForest; her children, Frances Helen (Tom) Newcombe, Jamie Gail (Paul) Vaught, and Lisa Marie (Ryan) Darling; her siblings, Michael (Vicki) Smith, Jim Donaldson, Teresa (David) Peal, and Brenda (Tom) Donaldson; her grandchildren, RJ (Destiny), Christopher (Brooke), Cheyenne (Josh), Robbie, Catherine, Austin, Dustin, Sara, Alyssa, Savannah (Kirey), Tyler (Meranda); her three great grandchildren, Tucker Jo, Westin Jo, Walker James, Cabella Jo; many brothers and sister-in-laws; many nieces and nephews; and many great nieces and nephews; and best friends, Michelle Traylor and Cindy Bartnick.
