Martha was born on July 1, 1929, in Morehead City, North Carolina, to the late Andrew and Martha Pittman. She was a faithful, lifetime member of Stacy Freewill Baptist Church. A true woman of God. Martha’s love for her family showed in everything she did. Especially in her cooking. Her light rolls were the best around, delicious collards, fried chicken, and shrimp were her specialties. Martha also had a green thumb, she loved working in her garden and loved roses. You could find her cracking pecans in her spare time. She was always ready to go even though she never had a driver’s license. Martha was loved and cherished by all who knew her.

She is survived by her daughter, Gay Hancock-Cox (Ricky) of Newport; brother, Larry C. Pittman of Beaufort; sister-in-law, Thelma Pittman of Rocky Mount; granddaughter, Cindy Mintz (Matthew) of Stacy; grandson, Rodney Fulcher (Angie) of Williston; great-grandchildren, Brianna Grayce Mintz, Ashley Faith Mintz, Christa Laxton, James Piner; and great-great-grandchildren, Travis Laxton, Jacob Piner, Ashley Piner, and Lillian Piner.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 55 years, Lester Hancock; daughter, Mattie Laura Hancock; and brothers, Norvey Pittman, Dennis Pittman, Elbert Pittman, Ralph Pittman, and Andrew Pittman.
