She died at Rose Bay, NC at the Credle family home. Miss Martha, as she was lovingly referred to in the Rose Bay community, resided until her death with her son, widower Albert Cartwright Credle, and his two sons, Sidney Arthur and Albert Bryce, until they moved away (Sidney to Norfolk, where he married Pauline Silverthorne) and Bryce into the US Navy during WW II and afterward married Virginia Jennette.
