Martha Jean was born in Carrollton, Georgia to Victoria and Ed Drummond on April 7, 1944. She eventually relocated to New Jersey where she met and married Eddie “Edison” Weathersbee Jr. She became a homemaker and seamstress and they raised their son, Edward Weathersbee. After the dissolution of her marriage, she devoted her life to her son’s well-being.
Reading was very important to Martha Jean. She believed the knowledge you gain from books could never be taken away from you and it would stay with you until the end of time. Martha Jean also enjoyed researching discounts on products and services and always looking for the “Best Deal.” She loved spreading her knowledge to her friends, family and even people she just met. She became known as the “Coupon Queen.” She especially enjoyed helping senior citizens and anyone who was disadvantaged and vulnerable. She was quite proficient in playing a variety of card games and was always willing to challenge someone in the word game of Scrabble.
