Martha Jane Konz, 90, better known all her life as Marty or Nana, passed away peacefully at Neosho Memorial Regional Medical Center in Chanute on Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2013. 
Marty was born in Philadelphia, Penn., on Aug. 24, 1923, the daughter of Matthew and Caroline Haddy.
She attended high school in Philadelphia.  On Jan. 20, 1945, she married Donald Louis Konz.
Marty and her husband traveled extensively throughout the United States while Don served as a career Navy man. They spent many wonderful years living in Florida, California, Delaware, Virginia and Hawaii.  Upon retirement, they settled in Cape Coral, Fla., for 27 years before moving to Chanute in 2002 to be closer to family.
She and her husband were avid golfers and loved to travel.  Marty was also an incredible seamstress.
She is survived by her son, Donald W. Konz and his wife Martha, McLean, Va.; her daughter, Karin L. Wulf and her husband Walt, Humboldt; her sister, Carolyn Lotkowski, Philadelphia, Pa.; her grandson, Donald L. Konz II and his wife Kelly, Potomac, Md.; her grandson, Trey Wulf and his wife Jennifer, Macomb, Mich.; her granddaughter, Morgan James and her husband Jeff, Tulsa, Okla.; and great-grandchildren, Kelsea Konz, Lindsay Konz and Garrison Konz, Potomac, Md.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband Don; four brothers, William Haddy, Matthew Haddy, Frank Haddy and Sam Haddy; and one sister, Ruth Tuten.
Marty was a long-standing member of Grace Episcopal Church in Chanute. She loved God and her church and we are confident that God holds Marty in the palm of his hand.
Her family would like to thank Heritage Health Care for their kindness and excellent care of Marty while she was a resident there. Special thanks also goes to Dr. Bruce Lee and the nursing staff of NMRMC.
A memorial service is scheduled at Grace Episcopal Church in Chanute at 11 a.m. Monday. An inurnment service at Grace Episcopal Church will follow the memorial service.
Memorials in her name may be made to Grace Episcopal Church and may be left with Penwell-Gabel Johnson Chapel.
