When she was 17, the death of her mother left Martha with the responsibility of raising 7 of her younger siblings for about 8 years. On March 2, 1947, she married William Peter Scholl, in Mobridge, SD.

As a homemaker, loving wife and mother, she cooked and baked for family, friends and hired men, grew flowers and loved to read and embroider. She was always active in church and school activities. After her husband, Bill, passed away in September of 1988, Martha remained on the ranch for several years then purchased a house and moved into Isabel.
