Martha Louise (Cox) Stringfield
January 8, 1945 ~ November 7, 2020
Martha Louise (Cox) Stringfield went to be with her Lord and Savior on November 7th, surrounded by her loving family after a long fight with cancer. Martha, or well-known as Marty, was born on January 8, 1945, to Harold and Jeanette Cox in Elkhart, Indiana. She grew up in Elkhart, graduated from Elkhart High School, and attended Cedarville University to become a teacher. She taught in the Elkhart School System for a couple of years. She took those skills to Ghana, West Africa, to answer the call the Lord had given her at age 19 to be a missionary. She taught missionary children there for 15 years. She resigned from Ghana, not knowing why the Lord had closed the door. She soon met Larry Stringfield, and they were married. Together, they served as missionaries to Kenya, East Africa until 2014. Marty loved her Lord, her family, friends, and all animals. She loved playing the French Horn. Marty is to be remembered for her strong faith in God and for being a prayer warrior. She did not worry about things, and as a woman of faith, gave her concerns to God. She had a great sense of humor and loved to laugh. She is survived by her four children, Michel Hokanson (Todd), Micah Stringfield (Royceanne), Megan Brown (Rodney), and Matthew Stringfield (Lauren), and her 13 grandchildren, Ethan and Seth Hokansom, Aleta Mundt (Caleb), Samantha, Lexie, Micah Jr., Caleb, Titus, Rebekah, and Rachel Stringfield, Robert, Jeremiah, and Jude Brown. She is also survived by her brothers, Dave Cox (Carolyn), Phil Cox (Phaidra), and Chuck Cox (Judy), and numerous nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her loving husband of 29 years, Larry Stringfield, her parents, and her brother, Jim Cox.
