Born in Blackburn, England August 19, 1926, Martha immigrated to Winnipeg with her family in 1957. She and Harry made several trips to England over the years to maintain their relationships with family and friends. She was a woman of many talents and loved travelling, singing, sewing, babies, cards and darts. She was private about her relationship with Jesus, but the family are at peace that she is now in His presence with lots of questions. Her ashes will be taken to Hazelwood Cemetery, Abbotsford, B.C. to be placed with Harry’s.
