Woman Buried In M&Ms-Themed Casket
Mary Starks Martin, a retired teacher from Snowflake, Arizona, was buried in a casket made in the shape of the blue M&M cartoon mascot. It sounds strange, but it made sense for Mary; her grandson Billy said she initialed everything with “MSM,” but the cursive capital “S” looked like “&.”
Her students started bringing her M&Ms and memorabilia, and she looked at it as part of her success as a teacher. She reportedly had the special casket built years before her death. She also had a funeral with an M&Ms theme, and attendees honored her by dropping the candies on her casket.
