On Thursday, August 29, 2019, Margaret Martin passed away peacefully in her hospital bed during her sleep. Her love for her three children Barbara (spouse Allan), Fred and Chuck (spouse Lynne) was evident at all times. She was an amazing Oma to her two grandchildren Carli and Morgan. Margaret leaves a brother Adolf behind in Germany, his wife Gerlinde and their two children Brigitte and Juergen. She leaves behind many dear friends and memories for us all.

A "Celebration of Life" for Margaret will be held at one of her favourite places in Chippawa "Betty's Restaurant" (8921 Sodom Road) on Thursday, September 5th from 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. Please feel free to join us with your stories, laughter and memories of her at this time.

Tante Gretel was our "vacation Mom." My sister and I traveled up the East Coast from New Jersey to Niagara Falls every year with our parents, during the last week of July for two weeks, to be with Tante Gretel, Onkel Fred, and our cousins Barb, Chuck, and Fred. Tante Gretel welcomed us with open arms, a beautiful home, and lots of great food. We became a part of her Martin family the moment we arrived. I believe it must be close to 15 years that these vacations became a family ritual; almost like Christmas during the summer! Tante Gretel will be missed dearly for the great memories that she was a part of that made us want to visit again year after year. Love, Richard Lyschik
