Obituary of Marta Lynn Sanchez

Marta Lynn Sanchez was born on April 20th, 1966 in Wichita, KS to Kathryn "Kay" and Enrique Sanchez. She earned her BA in psychology from The University of Kansas and her Master of Business Administration from Washburn University. Marta excelled in all of her careers, including banking, working at University of Washington School of Medicine, serving as Director of Family Services at Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville, and acting as CFO of Network Technology Partners, a business founded by her husband Robert Benton, from which she retired on August 1, 2021. Growing up, Marta enjoyed family backpacking trips and camping trips with extended family. She was a creative scrapbooker and photographer. Her passion for helping others was displayed through her efforts with Habitat, maintaining and encouraging relationships, raising funds for cancer research, and love and complete devotion to each family member. She was a role model and an inspiration to all who knew her. Her strong faith was sustained and strengthened throughout he eighteen year courageous battle with cancer. Marta married her soulmate, Robert Shane Benton, in 2004. Her deepest desire was to be a mother, and the adoption of Raelynn Benton in 2011 was a blessing; Marta led her to mature into the beautiful young lady she is today. Marta is survived by husband Robert Benton and daughter Raelynn, her parents Enrique and Kay Sanchez, her big brother Pastor David Sanchez (wife Deidre, children Reuben, Simeon and Titus), sister Kim Marie Folsom (husband Mike, children Dylan, Carmen, and Marcela), and many beloved relatives in the US and Mexico.
