Martha lived a full life and enjoyed her gardens around the house. She was an active member of the Metropolitan Bible church for many years. She had a long career starting with Dares cookies, nursing and Daycare worker.  She enjoyed talking to people and always a warm inviting smile for everyone.

A graveside ceremony will be scheduled for next summer when the weather will be warmer, her favorite birds, cardinals and Bluejays will be flying about and the flowers are in bloom.

Thank you for you support and prayers during this difficult time.

In lieu of flowers please send donations in Martha's name to the Diabetes Canada or the Alzheimer Society of Canada.
