Lydia Martin Obituary

Lydia Martin (nee Krahn) passed away on November 17, 2023, at the age of 91 years, just shy of her 92 birthday, in Grimshaw, AB.

Lydia was born November 27, 1931, in Hines Creek, AB. She moved to Fairview in her teens where she lived with her sisters and worked at a bank, until she met Tom Martin. She married and moved just north of Grimshaw, where they would build a farming business. They would divorce in 1984. Lydia raised two children and one granddaughter. She was very involved in her grandchildren and great-grandchildren’s lives. She would often travel with her grandchildren when she wasn’t adventuring on her own! During her years she was a very active volunteer, giving her time to many different causes.

She is survived by her son Allan Martin and her daughter Margo (Mervyn) Sims. Grandchildren: Natasha (Darren Schotte) Funk, Leanne (Andrew Rigg) Lee, Brandie (Darcy Moore) Martin, Katrina (Manuel Noskey) Lizotte and Kaz (Becky) Lizotte.
