With deep sadness, we announce the passing of a special Mom, Grandma, and Great-Grandmother on August 18, 2002.
Martha was born in Almy, WY. on June 11, 1910 and was raised on the family homestead near Sylvan Lake, Alta. where she met her husband Vern. They were married in 1932 and settled in Montrose and Trail. In 1969 they moved to Chilliwack where Vern passed away in 1994. Wanting to be closer to her family, Martha moved to Kelowna in 2000.
Martha was predeceased by her husband Vern; and her beloved granddaughter Vicki Baker.
She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Verna (Vince); her son Barry (Linda); and grandchildren, Marla MacDonald (Lewis), Renee Weaver, and Courtenay Weaver (Kyle), and Marnie and Paul Devlin. She was a devoted great-grandmother to Brandon, Ashton, Hayden, Darian and Kaylin, as well as a wonderful aunt to many nieces and nephews.
Her bright smile will be greatly missed by many old friends in Chilliwack and Trail, and by her new friends in Kelowna.
A Celebration of Martha’s Life will take place in Chilliwack at a later date.
For those who wish, donations to the SPCA or the Salvation Army would be appreciated.
Arrangements have been entrusted to First Memorial Funeral Services, Kelowna 1-800-667-9277. To send a condolence, visit www.firstmemorialkelowna.com
