Marti married Steven Jay Leider on Nov. 25, 1972.

Marti was co-owner and store manager for Leiders Garden Greenery, and the friendly face of the family business in Grayslake, Ill., for nearly 40 years. Maintaining old and building new relationships throughout her life, she never wanted more than family, friends and a glass of chardonnay.
