Weeks before she turned 104, on September 23, Martha Oster received support from the community in the form of cards and visits to her home after Coral Springs Talk published her story.

On Monday, Martha passed away peacefully in hospice care, surrounded by family and her home health aide, Judith.

Her granddaughter, Allison Davis, said the day she had been dreading came to pass with at least some comic relief.

“Her last words to me were to go find a husband,” said the barely 30-year-old lawyer who works for the Berman Law Group in Boca Raton.

Davis said, since her grandma passed away during the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, services were pushed to October 1 and will be held at the South Florida Jewish Cemetery in Lake Worth at 1 p.m.

Instead of flowers, donations can be made to the Chabad of Coral Springs’s fund for COVID-relief.  Martha worshipped at the Chabad since moving to Coral Springs in the early 80s.

In the video,  she can be seen thanking Coral Springs Talk for the story about her long life.
