Martha Mayer

January 8, 1933 — November 26, 2022

Martha Ann “Marty” Mayer, 89, of Arlington, passed away on November 26, with her family by her side.

Marty was born in Okmulgee, Oklahoma to A.N. “Jack” and Lucille Boatman during the Great Depression. She was the youngest of four children. Marty attended school in Okmulgee and enjoyed playing with her dog Wendy. She attended college at the University of Oklahoma where she received a degree in Home Economics. Marty always made sure that her family had well balanced meals. She was a member of the Delta Gamma sorority and a proud Sooner all her life.

Marty’s mother grew up in Virginia, so as a young girl she took many trips on the train with her family to the east coast to visit her mother’s family. During those trips she attended the 1939 New York Worlds Fair and visited New York City. As a teenager, Marty spent summers in Salmon, Idaho visiting her brother and riding around the mountains in jeeps.

Marty always told the story of how she saw a young man walking down the road, thought he was cute, and offered him a ride. Glenn Mayer was attending baking school in Okmulgee, and that chance meeting turned into a lifelong relationship. They fell in love and were married on September 4, 1954, celebrating 67 years of marriage this past year.

Marty was primarily a stay-at-home mom but was always involved in the various businesses that Glenn started. Glenn and Marty always worked as a team and were partners in everything they did. In 1974, Glenn and Marty started Mindy Lu’s Pies. Over the past 48 years, through both adversity and success, their mission was to provide a quality product and to share their Christian faith with others. They always gave God the credit for the success of the business.

Marty was an integral part of running Mindy Lu’s Pies and used the business to support many faith-based organizations and to help others who were struggling spiritually or financially. Over the years, she touched many peoples’ lives through her kind, helpful manner, her Christian testimony, and her generosity.
Being a faithful and loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother was very important to Marty and she wholeheartedly loved her family. Marty dedicated her life to Jesus and was faithful and generous with her time and resources to share the Gospel with others.

In addition to her children, Mark and Mindy, Marty is survived by her son-in-law, David Ellis, her daughter-in-law, Georgann Mayer, nine grandchildren, and three great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband Glenn, her parents, her brothers Jack Boatman and Ed Boatman, and her sister Lucille B. Reed.

A private graveside service will be held on Friday, December 2 at the Mansfield Cemetery. Please send memorial donations to The SUUBI Project ( ) or the church or charity of your choice.
