Martha was born on March 21, 1924, in the McKnight Community in Rusk County. Her parents were Doc and Etta (Gladden) Poston. She graduated from Laneville High School and attended Business School. She married Troy Bundrick from New Salem. She was a homemaker and a caregiver to many in New Salem. She loved to plant gardens and can vegetables, especially pickles. She successfully managed her livestock and farm for many years. After losing her husband in 1970 in an accident, she ventured into the work force. She worked for Texas Agriculture Extension as a program assistant with the Expanded Nutrition Program. Following that, She worked at Henderson High School in the nurse and counseling office. In 1979 she became an admitting clerk at Henderson Memorial Hospital. In 1994 her dream position began at the Depot Museum as a docent conducting tours. Participating in the Heritage Syrup Festival was especially important to her. Her life experience of the Great Depression, the Kilgore Oil Boom, the New London School Explosion, and her knowledge of Homemaking skills made her a valuable asset to the Museum. Many have benefited from her special talent making aprons, bonnets, and blankets. Eleven quilts and six baby blankets were donated to Highway 80 Rescue Mission, which she made with love.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Troy Bundrick; her sisters, Edna Mae Phillips, and Margie Nay; and great grandson, Jaxen Boothe.
