Martha’s family immigrated to Canada, settling in Coaldale, Alta., where she remained her whole life. After her parents’ death, she moved from the family farm to Sunny South Lodge. Here she enjoyed her time with her sister and caregiver. She was predeceased by 5 siblings. Always affectionate, Martha loved greeting acquaintances and playing bingo with the Lodge family. Despite limitations, Martha enjoyed life.
