Marla Gaile Hartman

VICTORIA - Marla Gaile Hartman, 52, of Victoria went to be with Jesus on July 27th, 2013 surrounded by love in her home. She was born on November 17th, 1960 in Plainview, TX to the late Marlin Miller and the late Shirley Webb.
Marla is survived by her beloved husband of almost 35 years Zane Hartman of Victoria TX. They enjoyed frequent trips to the beach, vacationing, dancing, and just enjoying one another's company. She is also survived by her cherished daughters, Monica Lassmann and husband Kurt of Victoria, Brianna Lytle and husband Nate of Houston, and Chelsea Hartman of Victoria. Her sister Michelle Crumley currently resides in Reno, NV with husband Newt. Marla was loved and treasured by her sisters in law Veronica Turley and husband Jim, Dorita Richter and husband Ken, Diana Barrineau and husband Chuck, mother in law Loni Hartman, stepmother Melinda Miller, stepfather Lynn Webb, and numerous precious nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her father, mother and brother in law Eli Hartman.
Marla graduated Suma Cum Laude from Wayland Baptist University where she received her Bachelor's in Education. She adored teaching and loved her "kids" through all the many years. She had a passion for music and being the music teacher at Schorlemmer Elementary was one of her greatest joys. Marla was a great lover of life and an amazing inspiration to all who knew her. Her ability to light up the room with a single beautiful smile, her love for flamingos, and the legacy of "faith, hope, and love" is something she will be remembered by forever.
A celebration of her life will be held on Wednesday, July 31st at Parkway Church in Victoria, TX with Pastor Mike Hurt officiating. A visitation will be held at 2 pm and a memorial service to follow at 3.
Serving as Honorary Pallbearers are Newt Crumley, Jim Turley, Ken Richter, Chuck Barrineau, Kurt Lassmann, Nate Lytle, and Darrel Tomsu.
