Martha L. (Darling) Eastwood, 87, passed away Tuesday morning, Nov. 6, 2012, at her home in the beautiful hills of Nashville.

She was born Feb. 11, 1925, in Lafayette to the late James R. and Nancy E. (Cox) Darling. Martha married William H. Eastwood Dec. 2, 1944, in Lafayette. He survives after 67 loving years.

Eastwood of Crossville, Tenn., Robert E. Eastwood of Anderson, Wesley S. Eastwood of Columbus, David B. and Michael A. Eastwood of Nashville.

Martha was preceded in death by her parents; two sisters, Marjorie Smith and Dorothy Morinski; and seven brothers, Charles “Dick” Gallagher, Ralph L. Bernard, and David, William, James and John Darling.

She was a member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Martinsville and enjoyed working in her flower gardens and watching and feeding the birds.
