She and her husband, Mitchell, toured as The Spencer Family for more than 40 years from their home in Kentucky, and left a legacy of recordings in their wake. They are regarded as among the first groups to blend southern Gospel and bluegrass music starting in the 1960s.
As a tribute to their life in music, this video overview was created for their being presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Gospel Music Association in 2013.
Martha is survived by her husband, Mitchell and a large family of children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
