Martha Jean Zeller, 91, of Noblesville, passed away on Thursday, March 5, 2020 at Prairie Lakes Health Campus in Noblesville. Martha was born on November 27, 1928 to Joseph and Mildred (Sylvester) Prater in Anderson, Indiana.
Martha graduated from Anderson High School in 1946. She worked at the Anderson Herald Bulletin for over 25 years as a proofreader and tele-typist. Living most of her married life in Noblesville, she was an active member of the Hamilton County Extension Homemakers, of which she served on several committees. Martha was a member of the Clarksville Christian Church as well as active in the Christian Women’s Fellowship. Most of all, she enjoyed being a “farm wife”, spending time with her family, and adored being a grandma. Martha had a strong faith in God, loved to laugh and had a servant's heart.
