Martens; Katharina

Sadly we announce the passing of our mother on March the 29th. She was born on February 28th, 1919 in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. She emigrated with her family to Mexico at 5 years of age. There she grew up, married and started her own family. In 1953 she and her young family moved to Abbotsford, BC. In 1959 the family moved to Chilliwack where she resided until her passing. What was most important to mom was the welfare of her children. She will be fondly remembered by her eight children Jake, George (Faye), Cornelius (Roberta), Tina, Mary, Margaret (Dennis), Peter (Terri), and Bill (Nola), numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband Cornelius in 1994 and son-in-laws Murray Apps in 2006 and John Adamson in 2008, also by grand-daughter Anita Lewis in 2013.
