Beatrice Martin

February 26, 1923 - January 14, 2015

Tribute

Bea Martin (91) of Okanagan Falls, passed away peacefully on Wednesday January 14, 2015 surrounded by the love of her family

She was born in the Hood farmhouse in Ituna, Sask. and was the sixth child born out of twelve brothers and sisters. Bea met and married James (Jim) Martin (predeceased Oct 1991) in July 1949. Together with their three sons; Kenneth (Ken), Robert (Bob) and Gordon moved from Ituna to settle in Okanagan Falls in 1968. Bea worked at Covert Farms, loved gardening and enjoyed playing cards. She also cherished any time spent with family and adored her grandchildren. She truly was the best Grandma ever and will be dearly missed.

Bea will be fondly remembered by her sister Cora Mufford of Langley, BC, her brother Bruce Hood of Enderby, BC; her three sons Ken, Bob (Bev) and Gordon (Kathy); grandchildren Michael (Heather), Jason, Jorie, Stephanie (Caleb), Dustin (Laura), Brett (Joanna), Kayla (Jerald); her great-grandchildren Summer, Layla and Jack as well as many extended family and friends.

Bea had the biggest heart ever when it came to her family. We were her life.

A memorial service for Bea will be held at 2:00 P.M. Saturday January 24, 2015 at the Okanagan Falls United Church.

Donations are gratefully accepted for the South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation, 550 Carmi Avenue, Penticton, BC V2A 3G6.

Ken, Bob & Gordon;
Very sorry to hear about Aunt Beattie passing. Very nice obituary about her. It was a very long time ago that I remember visiting, sad that not many of the 12 brothers and sisters are still with us.
Take care,
