Thanks for all you did in order to make Ohio a better place to live.
Martha C. Moore, a Republican icon in Ohio and 35-year member of the GOP National Committee, has died at the age of 91.
She died yesterday morning -- 11 days after her birthday -- at an assisted-living facility in Columbus and will be buried in her hometown of Cambridge, the state party said.
Moore was active in state and national Republican Party politics for 50 years and her advice was sought by politicians from City Hall to the White House, Ohio GOP Chairman Kevin DeWine said.
"Martha provided unparalleled leadership and counsel to our party . . ." he said. "She was a role model for women in politics and, at a time when women were fighting for equality, she led our state committee to create county Republican Party chair positions for women in all 88 counties.
