Enid, born in St. John’s, Newfoundland in 1924, came west with her husband Lloyd George Martin at the end of World War II. They lived in a number of locations in BC, settling in Nanaimo in the early 1970’s. She was a skilled homemaker and devoted to the care of her family. She made deep friendships that lasted for years. She suffered many losses over the years; her first son David, her husband Lloyd, her sister Ruth, brother Fred, and her youngest son Ralph. She is survived by her daughter Helen, a brother Eric and his family in Halifax, nephews Robert and Russell and their families in St. John’s, Newfoundland and a niece Beth, in Cranbrook, as well as sisters-in-law Margaret in Cranbrook and Lorraine in Victoria. A service in her memory will be held on January 17, 2004 at 2 p.m. at Sands Funeral Home at #1 Newcastle Avenue, Nanaimo, BC.
