She married Jerry Lee Waters in 1954. They owned and lived on a dairy until 1974. They spent summers taking their champion Brown Swiss cattle to fairs across the country to compete. Marthella owned and ran Blue Horizon Gift shop in Pendleton, Oregon for 35 years, where she taught oil and acrylic painting in the store. She also shipped her paintings all over the world. Marthella was preceded in death by husband Jerry Waters, son Ted Waters, sister Daisy Ludeman, and brothers George Moore and Elmer Moore.

My deepest condolences to Marthella’s family. I was fortunate enough to befriend both Marthella and Polly when I had the yogurt shop down the street from them. We were self employed businesswomen of Court St. they were very welcoming And supportive to me when I had the shop. I missed them both when they retired and I sold my place. They have a special place in my heart always. Prayers.
