Martha was born Jan. 25, 1913, in Chippewa Falls to parents Henry and Mary (Hazelbausch) Frerking. She married Alvin Windsor Aug. 19, 1934, in Chippewa Falls. Following their marriage, the couple lived in Black River Falls. They moved to Chippewa Falls during the World War II, where her husband was employed in the war effort.
