Martha Ann McComb McCaskill, 88, passed away peacefully at Westminster Oaks on December 14, 2022. She was born on Jan. 24, 1934, to the late Joseph Clyde McComb and Janie Lucille Thomas in Florence, SC. She graduated from Winthrop College and married Ralph Emerson McCaskill on December 23, 1955. Together they ministered to Presbyterian churches throughout the Southeast. During those years, Martha Ann was constantly volunteering with school and church groups, the arts, and non-profit organizations such as American Heart Association and the American Cancer Society.
Martha Ann taught school in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina, where she was named Teacher of the Year for the state.
Momee, as she was known by her grandkids, loved to tell stories of her youth and of her adventures with “Pop”. She loved to tell these stories to anyone who would listen. She was always ready to go with whomever was going anywhere. Her thirst for adventure was unquenchable.
Martha Ann was preceded in death by her husband, Ralph, and is survived by her brother, Joe McComb (Barbara) of Orangeburg, SC; son Rick McCaskill (Janet) of Whigham, GA, daughter Chandler Touchton of Mexico Beach, FL, daughter Jodi Harbin (Greg) of Washington, NC.

Martha Ann also had nine great grandchildren: Ryan Murray (Samantha), Michael Murray, Leighton Murray, Ivy Mitchell, Max McCaskill, Elias Milanes, Alex Milanes, Rylynn Milanes, and Mireyanna Milanes.
