Our beloved Wife and Mother, Martha Kirkland Vrana of Waco, Texas was called home to be with the Lord on Monday, March 24th at the age of 82.

Born November 12, 1937 she was raised in Fort Worth by her loving parents, Laston and Dollie Kirkland. She graduated from R.L. Paschal High School in 1956.

After graduating from high school, Martha worked at General Dynamics in Fort Worth until she met her future husband Edward James Vrana.

Ed and Martha were married on February 9, 1962 in Fort Worth. They that same year moved to Waco where they started a beautiful marriage that lasted 58 years.

Martha’s full-time job was to create a loving home to her husband and two sons, Keith and Scott Vrana.

Martha volunteered in many organizations through St. Louis Catholic Church including St. Anne’s Circle, Mother’s Club, and the Altar Server organization. She also was very involved in both St. Louis Catholic School and Reicher Catholic High School serving both schools in many capacities.

Martha considered all her sons’ classmates as her own children. Martha and Ed were also a fixture at many Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity functions.

They were honored by the Mayor of San Marcos who issued a proclamation awarding both as Honorary Citizens of San Marcos where their sons attended Southwest Texas State University.

Martha was preceded in death by her parents, Laston and Dollie Kirkland, and brother, Kenneth Kirkland.

Martha is survived by her devoted husband, Edward Vrana; her loving sons, Keith Vrana and his wife Kimberly and Scott Vrana and his wife Monica; and her brother, Joe Kirkland and wife Diane. She is also survived by her five adoring grandchildren, Blake, Darby, Alec, Bella, and Laston Vrana.

A private graveside service will be held on Monday, March 30, 2020. The family will hold a Celebration of Life in the coming months to honor their beloved Wife, Mother, and Grandmother.

Honorary Pallbearers are Blake Vrana, Alec Vrana, Laston Vrana, Clinton Bittenbinder, David Bittenbinder, Grant Gilbert, Clayton Heitmiller, and Kyle Reeves.
