Martha Wilson


Oak Grove, OR

Martha Wilson first rang handbells in 1977, but life got in the way and she couldn’t really devote time to them until 1989, at which time she fell in love with them. She has been ringing or directing or both since then! She enjoys small ensembles and solo ringing as well as ringing in a larger choir.

When not ringing, she conducts psychiatric assessments in a hospital ER. She plays several other instruments as well, having grown up with professional church musician parents. In addition to music Martha enjoys her friends most of all, but also theater, reading, wine tasting, cooking and spending time with her partner, Kris Sparks, and their two dogs.
