It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Martha on Thursday, May 20th, 2021 at the age of 79. Beloved wife of Keith for 33 years. Loving mother of Shelley (Peter) and Karen (Grant).
Martha leaves behind her granddaughters Tian and Ana. She is survived by her sisters and brothers Kathy, Anne, Betty, Al and George and many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by her siblings John, Mary and Bill.
Martha was born in Saskatchewan and lived in Alberta, Quebec and Ontario. She worked at CP Rail in a number of positions for 34 years.
Martha and Keith travelled the world including China, Australia, Europe, and Canada and took many cruises over the years. Summers were spent at the cottage. Boating, sitting by the dock with family and friends and spending endless hours weeding and tending her gardens.
Her granddaughters brought great joy and she would always be willing to play games, read books and attend dance recitals, soccer games and graduation ceremonies.
Her calm demeanor, willingness to listen and never judge, patience, ability to tackle whatever came her way, independence, and strength of character were important lessons to us all.
Due to present restrictions a private family service will take place on Saturday, May 29, 2021. For those who wish to view the service virtually, please copy this link https://youtu.be/u-oZ-ZHCkXM
