Martha P. Rachles
Help us celebrate Martha! Please share your stories and photos, and invite others who remember Martha.
Martha Anne Pratt Rachles, 77, formerly of Naples, Florida and Columbus, Indiana, passed away on Sunday, August 23, 2020 after succumbing quickly to Covid 19.
Martha was born to Barbara and Norman T. (Jim) Pratt on June 2, 1943 in Washington, DC. She lived most of her life in Bloomington, Indiana; Zionsville, Indiana; and Naples, Florida, with occasional summers in Maine.
Martha prided herself in making a beautiful home for her family. She was very talented in her homemaking skills which included cooking, decorating, and many other artistic endeavors including needlepoint, stenciling, and jewelry making. She took pride in what her children accomplished. They were the love of her life. She also loved to have dogs around, especially Cocker Spaniels and Bichon Frise. Later in life, she fulfilled her dream to work in the beauty industry as a nail technician.
She is survived by her sons Nathan Todd Buntin and Matthew Troy Buntin, her daughter-in-law Lori Buntin; her granddaughters Ellie and Kara Buntin, her brother David Wixon Pratt; her sister Deborah Pratt Maloni, her ex-husbands P.T. Buntin and Bill Rachles, and many nieces and nephews.
A private memorial service will be held at a later date. Her family would like you to drink a toast to Martha (she was especially fond of a good Margarita!) in her memory. Arrangements were entrusted to the Jewell-Rittman Family Funeral Home
