Martha Louisa ‘Marty’ Brady Bruton, 92, accomplished musician who nurtured talent into ministry

WILMINGTON — Martha Louisa ‘Marty’ Brady Bruton, 92, died Saturday, Nov. 17, 2018. She was the widow of the late Daniel Davis Bruton Jr.

She was born in Siler City, North Carolina, the daughter of the late Myrtle Fox Brady and Clarence E. Brady. She is survived by her two sons, Daniel Davis Bruton III, and his wife, Elizabeth Curtis Bruton, of Carolina Beach, and Mark Harrison Bruton, and his wife, Dianne Randall Bruton; daughter, Stephanie Bruton Brooks, and her husband, Philip Wayne Brooks, all of Wilmington; six grandchildren and their spouses, Michael and Anna Wrenn Bruton of Carolina Beach, Anna and Ross Braymer of Concord, Rebecca and George Edwards of Raleigh, Lauren and Michael Albert of Charlottesville, Virginia, Hannah Catherine Brooks of Chicago, Illinois, and Harrison and Caroline Brooks of Atlanta, Georgia; as well as five beautiful grandchildren, Kayla Bruton, George and Hurley Edwards, Micah and Jonah Braymer and Eleanor Albert.

Marty was a graduate of Greensboro College in Greensboro, where she graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Music. She pursued Master’s level training in music performance at the renowned Juilliard School of Music in New York City, as well as the University of Cincinnati in Ohio. She served as minister of music in various churches and taught private piano and organ for over 30 years.

In 1950, she and her husband were chosen to appear on the television program, “Bride and Groom,” out of Hollywood, California, where they were married.

Her various accomplishments included a concert at the North Carolina Governor’s Mansion, as well as other performances nationally and internationally. She has also been featured on radio and her original vocal compositions have been performed at several universities. Also, her desire to record significant events in her life that impacted her faith was realized through the writing of her book, Come To My Banquet Table, which she hoped would bless and enrich the lives of her family and others.

Since her retirement, her talent was directed toward spiritual pursuits, working with such groups as the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International, Aqueduct Ministry in Chapel Hill and Women’s Aglow. Other groups to which she contributed her skills include Women of the Word and ministries such as Norvel Hayes, Helping Hands Ministry and Living Waters Ministry in Guatemala. Additionally, she was on the teaching staff at Caribbean Christ for the Nations in Jamaica, West Indies.

Her greatest desire was for people, especially through her music, to come to know Christ in His fullness.

A service will be held at 10 a.m., Wednesday, Nov. 21, at Andrews Mortuary Chapel on College Road. A private burial service for the family will be held following her service.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be sent to Lower Cape Fear Hospice, 1414 Physicians Drive, Wilmington, NC 28401; Myrtle Grove Presbyterian Church, 800 Piner Road, Wilmington, NC 28409; and The Pentecostals of Wilmington, 3615 Chippenham Drive, Wilmington, NC 28412.
