Mary Theresa Martin Wofford, 60, of Red Stone, Colo., passed away November 5, 2010.

She was born April 17, 1950 to John and Eloise Martin, the youngest of four daughters. Three years later a brother was born completing the family. Being the youngest of four girls, Mary loved to stay with her Grandma Livingston, where things were a lot quieter. She taught Mary to always think of others first. Mary also loved to stay with the McAulley’s or the Dykstra’s whom she viewed as her second mothers.

Mary was born in Flagler, Colo., and loved the plains. Her family later moved to Fort Collins, Colo., where she finished growing up and married.

Mary graduated from Poudre High School class of 1968. She married Donald Wilson Wofford on August 31, 1967. They were married 43 years and had two children. Mary and Don set a goal of having a farm by the time their son was 5-years-old. This resulted in a move to Idaho where they bought a 40 acre farm and raised their children. The 40 acres became too small for all of the cattle so a ranch was purchased north of Gooding, Idaho. Mary loved life in the country. She raised a garden most years, kept the livestock records, cared for baby calves, helped as needed with working cattle and drove the tractor while feeding livestock in the winter.

Wednesday’s after moving to the ranch, Mary would pick her mother up in Gooding, Idaho, and they would spend the day doing the week’s errands in Twin Falls, Idaho, getting groceries and a quick bite to eat before going back to Wendell, Idaho, for choir practice, a 100 plus mile round trip. She loved choir practice and singing in the choir on Sundays and the Christmas and Easter Cantada’s. Participating in and leading Bible Studies, leading the youth group, serving on the new church design and building team, 10 years as church treasurer and one term as elder rounded out her 30 years of participation in her church family in Wendell, Idaho. After leaving Idaho and friends with more than a little sadness, she attended the church at Redstone, Colo., made new friends, and became part of the church family.

Mary loved life and learning new things. In high school she loved and excelled in the business classes and math. After graduation she worked for the City of Fort Collins in the finance department and studied accounting at Aims College. She also loved interior design and drawing house plans. Mary designed and with her husband built a passive solar home on their farm in Wendell, Idaho. Shortly after moving to Wendell, Idaho, she accepted a job as City Clerk and Treasurer for the City of Wendell. She tested and received certification as a City Clerk and Finance Officer for the state of Idaho in 1980, one of only five in the state at that time. Later, Mary accepted a position as accountant for Falconhurst Dairy of Buhl, Idaho. During that time she set up a computerized office for them and studied computer programming at the College of Southern Idaho. In 1990, her husband’s business had grown enough to require her to devote all of her working hours to accounting for it.

At the age of 47, Mary was ready for a change of occupation. She studied massage therapy at the Idaho School of Massage therapy in Boise, Idaho and completed a 500 hour course. She then tested for National Certification in therapeutic Massage and Bodywork and received her certification. Mary owned and operated The Therapeutic Touch for eight years and made many friends among her regular clients.

At the age of 50, she again designed a new house for the ranch incorporating the original homestead cabin in the design. It was her dream home and included designs she had thought about for years. It was especially dear to her having been built by her husband, brother, son, father and friends.

In 2006 Mary and Don moved back to Colorado, this time to Redstone, Colo., where their son Bob had settled. Mary worked part time as needed at Valley View Hospital in Glenwood Springs, Colo., loving every minute of it and the new friends she made.

She is survived by her husband Donald Wofford; her daughter Aundria Dawn Wofford and her three children Mark, Elizabeth and Julia; her son Robert James Wofford and Mary Ann Wofford and their three children Abriah, Justice and Sam; her parents John Martin and Eloise Livingston Martin; her sisters Alice Paulette Weinberger and Peggy June Eckroth; and her brother Richard Leigh Martin.

She was preceded in death by her sister, Patty Joan (Herman).
