Nov 30, 1897 – Aug 26, 2012
Joanne Martha Doe, born in St. Germaine Switzerland on November 30,1897, passed away on August 12, 2012 of natural causes at her retirement home in Nelson, BC.
Martha was known to everyone as Mart; she was loved by her husband John whom she was married to for 67 years, by her son John Jr. and her beloved grandsons Bob & Billy.
Mart was the youngest of eleven and was dearly loved by her older siblings as her baby sister.
Mart was strong and determined. She worked side by side her husband, working on trains and managing the operations of the local railway station. She was also a hair stylist but what she enjoyed the most was spending time with her grandsons.
Mart was a dog lover with two Great Danes. She also enjoyed listening to classic rock and hiking in the outdoors.
In her younger years she hunted along side her husband and friends. And in her later years, she loved going out to the wilderness to ride ATVs with her family.
Mart will always have a special place in the lives of everyone that had the pleasure of meeting her. She will be missed dearly by her friends and family and will always be remembered by her strong will and determination.
