She will also be greatly missed by her sisters; Vi Bowie of Armstrong and Norma Schueler of Edmonton. Martha was predeceased by her parents, sister and brother-in-law Walter and Edna Delay.

Martha was born on December 7, 1944 in Arborfield, Saskatchewan and moved to Lumby at an early age, she married Billy on December 1, 1962. If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane I’d walk right up to heaven and bring you home again. Martha passed away after a brief battle with cancer. She will be sorely missed by all her family and friends.
