Martha Elizabeth Turlik passed away on July 23, 2022, at the young age of 65 at Frederick Memorial Hospital surrounded by family. Born in Park Forest, Illinois on May 2, 1957, she was the youngest daughter of James Ryland Fink and Mary Jane (Haag) Fink.
Marty graduated from Towson University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, which she relied on throughout her business career culminating in the role of Vice President and co-founder of Integrated Network Service, Inc, a Maryland-based IT consulting firm.
Martha and her husband of 38 years, Mark Turlik, were married on May 19, 1984. She is survived by her daughters Sarah Elizabeth Turlik and Hannah Mary Turlik, her son John Michael Turlik, and her surrogate daughter Michelle Elizabeth Saunders, as well as two granddaughters Kimora and Milan Saunders. Marty is also survived by her siblings Daniel Fink, Frances (Fink) Finnegan, and David Fink.
Marty was a generous, caring individual who touched the lives of friends and family. She was passionate about history with a profound interest in all facets of English history and had the utmost respect for the greatest generation that served in WWII. She loved to read and continue to educate herself and had an uncanny ability to remember the most trivial of facts. She enjoyed all varieties of music but those who knew her best, knew that the Beatles and Moody Blues were at the top of her chart.
Marty traveled extensively throughout her adult life with particularly fond memories of her travels to England, Ireland, Hawaii, the Caribbean, and San Francisco. However, without a doubt Marty’s favorite vacation destination was the city where she first honeymooned, Williamsburg, Virginia.
