Martha Haywood passed away on Sunday, February 16, 2020 at the age of 92 years. A Graveside Service for family members will be held at Crooked River Cemetery with Doreen Day, Certified Celebrant, officiating.

Martha Haywood was born on May 21, 1927 in Rotterdam, Holland to Maarten and Maria Evers.

Martha experienced the tragedy of World War II along with starvation and loss of life’s necessities. Martha met a Canadian soldier in WWII, James Earl Haywood. They were married on December 27, 1945 in Rotterdam, Holland. In April 1946 Martha left for Canada to join her new husband and then to live in Crooked River, Saskatchewan. They began their family of three children, George, Thomas and Yvonne.
Her husband passed away in 1995 and then she decided to move to Bredenbury, SK in 1998. She decided to get her drivers license at age 69 and became independent, and decided to learn how to dance with the help of her special friend “Walter”.

Martha also loved animals and decided to have a pet dog “Benji” that became her fur baby. Also among things, were her love of cooking with the good stuff and enjoying a good cup of coffee. She also developed a walking and biking routine with her close friend “Colleen”.

Once her health declined it was on to getting a new set of new wheels which was a mobile scooter which she enjoyed for a few years.

Martha suffered a major health issue in 2013 and after surviving, left her with the loss of independent living. Her new home would now be Care Homes in Ituna, Canora and finally Lakeside Manor Care Home in Saltcoats, SK. She then enjoyed the many shopping trips to Yorkton on the handy bus, plus auction sales and a dance on the floor with her walker. Her last dance was shared with her close friend “Vi” on her 100th Birthday Celebration at the Care Home.

Martha entertained herself in her room watching “Judge Judy” and “America’s Got Talent”.
Martha was predeceased by her husband in 1995, and also great granddaughter Jacqueline Avery in 2019 and her fur baby “Benji”.

Martha is survived by her children George (Lorraine); Thomas (Sharon) and Yvonne (Ed) along with her grandchildren, great grandchildren, special friend Walter, grand dogs, Dixie and Stormie, as well as her many friends.

Martha’s family would like to thank the Lakeside Manor staff for the care they provided Martha along with the compassionate comfort during her failing health.

Also thank you to Dr. Nel for providing Martha’s excellent care and sharing a little Dutch song called “Sally Marise” with Martha which she enjoyed so much.

Rest in Peace Mom.

We must celebrate Martha - she was a wonderful example of a life well lived! She had a bright inner light that glowed in her smile. I loved to hear her laugh as we visited at Lakeside Manor, where my mom, Irene Maddaford, also lived. Mom & Martha both loved to dance, so when musicians & orchestras played at the manor, it was a happy time dancing with mom & watching Martha dance with her walker! I’ll always remember her strong spirit & her kindness! May her family share many memories & stories, with tears & laughter, as she’ll live on in their hearts!

I will always remember going to Grandma and Grandpa Haywood's house in Crooked River, cutting down a real Christmas tree and making Popcorn string and home made decorations to put on the tree, going to shoot targets with Grandpa, my Dad and brothers. Grandpa was impressed a girl could shoot so well as he was an amazing markman in WWII. I always looked forward to Grandma's home grown raspberries, frozen then put in a bowl with hot water and sugar...that was my favorite thing to eat at her house and her famious candy dish on the coffee table. Resting Paradise and fly high with Grandpa and my beautiful Princess Jacqueline until we meet again 💜
