    I only visited with Martha a few times. When my mom came to visit in Red Deer mom ( May Davis) And Martha got together. Her daughter also brought her to Naicam to visit . She was a lovely lady who served us cookies with currants – which I loved. Have not been able to find them to buy recently. When I look in the cookie aisle I often think of her. My condolences to the family.
