Dear Silvia, dear Eric,

I have affectionate, vivid memories of your mother, from many conferences, her sabbatical 
and her visits in Genoa, with your father for long periods and sometimes with you.
We had long discussions, about mathematics, politics and everything. We miss them, 
more than I am able to say.

Marta had familial links with this town, as you certainly know but perhaps most of our 
colleagues ignore. Many years ago, she asked me to find here documents of her grand 
father (or grand-grand, I do not remember), through which she could obtain the Italian 
citizenship.

With our affection and regret

Marco and Maria Teresa

Dear Colleagues,

I have already written to Eric and Silvia saying, "We will always remember your mother with great admiration".

"We" was referring to my family, but I am sure I could say "we" for the whole community of category theory. Some of you know more than I do about Marta's mathematics and the role she played in Montreal's and World's category theory, but I also know enough to speak of admiration, thinking about her talent, her vision, and her kindness.

George

I was very sad to hear of Marta’s death. Despite much mathematical exchange by email, our various attempts to arrange a meeting all fell through  and now the opportunity is gone. Yet her work remains one of my go-to sources for topological aspects of topos theory, dating back to her collaboration  with Funk on powerlocales and their topos version the symmetric topos. I continue to draw inspiration from her deep thinking and clear exposition.
