It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother, Baba, and great grand mother Martha on July 29th, 2022.
She is survived by Frank her husband of 73 years, and their three children Roger, (Valerie), Glenn (Valerie) and Joanne (James). She was Baba Martha to her granddaughters Chloe (David) and Clare (Chris) and to her great grandchildren Olsen, Loa and Oona. She is survived by her sisters Ann and Jean.
She was predeceased by her parents and brothers Joe and Mike and her sisters Nellie, Mary, and Helen.
Martha was born in 1929 at the family farm in Seech, Manitoba, where she attended school, then worked at Shoal Lake Hospital until she met and married Frank and they moved to Winnipeg.
Mom was gracious, generous, and devoted to her family. She kept a beautiful home and an exquisite garden. She was an excellent cook, baker, decorator, seamstress, and fisherwoman. There wasn’t anything Martha couldn’t master to perfection. Her traditional twelve-dish Christmas Eve dinners were legendary as were her fishing excursion lunches. She loved providing daily childcare for her granddaughters. She adored them endlessly and took so much delight in their accomplishments. She will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by her family and friends.
The family would like to thank the staff at Cornish 6 of the Misericordia Hospital and Father Bohdan Lukie for their care and comfort.
Cremation has taken place. A service for Martha will be held on Thursday, August 11th at 11:00 a.m. at Cropo Funeral Home 1442 Main St, Winnipeg.
