Martha Louise Funk (nee Neufeld) was born to Peter J. and Katrina Neufeld in Morden, Manitoba, in 1930. Martha was carried into the arms of Jesus, her Lord and Saviour, on Sunday, September 18th, 2022, at Boyne Lodge Personal Care Home.

Martha is survived by her husband of 62 years, Frank Funk, her daughters: Patricica Kroeker (Alan), Pauline Loewen (Lyle), and Fran Goossen (Jon), nine grandchildren: Brett Kroeker (Mariannick), Deanna Bailey (Joe), Allison Dyck (Joel), Brenlee DeFelice (Joash), Kara Hague (Tim), Jordan Loewen (Karis), Holly Goossen (Caleb Olfert), Joshua Goossen (Lily), and Rachel Goossen (Trevor Nickel). Martha had the privilege of meeting all of her nine great grandchildren: Ella & Remington, Ruben, Griffin & Roscoe, Nina, Hubert, Willa & Wren. She prayed for her family daily.

Martha graduated from Grace General Hospital with her Registered Nursing Degree and nursed for over 30 years. She raised her family in Elm Creek and served faithfully in the Elm Creek MB Church. Upon retirement, Frank and Martha moved to Carman and worshiped at Friends Community Church. Martha continued to serve others by volunteering at the MCC Thrift Store. She was an avid reader and spent many hours doing puzzles and playing scrabble.

Martha persevered through hip replacement surgery just one year ago; she courageously awaited a room in Boyne Lodge and was able to join Frank in Sunflower House in March of this year. It was good for them to be together again. However, she succumbed to a second fall that occurred several days before her passing. Martha faced her trials with faithful devotion to her God. Underlined in her Bible were these verses from Psalm 13: 5 & 6: “But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing to the LORD, for he has been good to me.”

We are grateful for the care shown to Mom during her past few months at Boyne Lodge.
