Martha “Marty” Jane Hostetler taught at Bluffton Elementary

Martha “Marty” Jane Hostetler passed away on April 1, 2024. Marty was born on November 22, 1940, the youngest child of William and Elma (Locher) Badertscher of Bluffton. She grew up in the Bluffton area, attended Bluffton College where she met her husband Lowell, and other than a brief stint in the ‘60s, lived her whole life in Bluffton. She and Lowell traveled extensively throughout their 60-year marriage. Between her travel experiences and her insatiable curiosity about everyone and everything, Marty’s world was so much larger than a life lived in a single small town might seem.
