Martha Farrelly (nee Scanlon), age 77, of Bryn Mawr, PA, passed away on March 6, 2022. Born in Skehana, County Galway, Ireland, she was the daughter of the late Thomas and Delia Scanlon (nee Nolan).
In her teenage years, Martha followed her older sisters to Philadelphia where she eventually met her husband, Peter, and together they started their family.
Martha was a longtime parishioner at Our Mother of Good Counsel Parish where she served as a Eucharistic Minister and volunteered with the Interfaith Hospitality Network serving the homeless. Additionally, Martha remained connected to her Irish heritage while being a longtime member of the Cavan Society of Philadelphia.
