Martha was very caring and compassionate especially about those suffering from mental illness. She served in the NAMI organization for so very many years. She helped so many who were seeking help and answers and knowledge on how to help their family member. I was one of those people who came seeking help and hope for my son. She is one who gave me hope! I was inspired by her journey with her son and I am so grateful for Martha, she shared her heart with so many that were suffering and helped us do better and be better! Thank you Martha and John!!

Dr. Tanner was a huge gift to our community not only medically but also with her service to the in the mental health area. She was a huge part of the local NAMI group and worked hard on increasing awareness of  mental illness.  She will be missed.

Martha was among the most intellectually sound, morally compassed, and steadfastly compassionate physicians I ever had the privilege to work with. I learned something from her on every case we ever had together and Martha's commitment to the truth, personally, professionally and culturally will stay with me forever. John, she will be much missed. My thoughts are with you. Ken Krell
