Grant, Brian and families,
I was so sorry to hear about your mom when I was talking to Cyril last night. She was my teacher and JA leader, and she was also a close family friend. My mom and dad thought the world of her and your dad. I have many great memories and even a few pictures of her as my teacher, and she will always be fondly remembered!

My condolences to the family. I remember Mrs. Martin well from her days at Paradise Elementary when she was my principal and have many very fond memories of her, all of which bring a smile to my face. May she rest in peace.


Sincere condolences to you and your family. I’ve no doubt she was a wonderful lady who has left you with many happy memories. All the best to you all.

On behalf of your friends in the National Park Service, we are sadden to hear about your beloved grandmother. Sending lots of hugs and best wishes your way. All the best. to you and your family.

I was so saddened to read of this today. I remember her from way back her days at paradise elementary and have seen her different times all up thru the years and she would remember us. Truly a gem and such a special lady that has made a lasting impression to so many. My sincere condolences to the family.

Grant, Brian and families please accept my deepest condolences on your mother’s passing. She truly was a wonderful person. May fond memories provide you comfort during this difficult time.

Grant and Brian – my deepest sympathy on the passing of your Mom. I could say what a wonderful teacher, person and friend she was; but for me she was like Mom number two; and that really says it all. God Bless.

Grant and family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you at this most difficult time.Your mom was a lovely lady and a very special person, I still remember the time that my family and your family went to Trinity East for vacation,we were about 6 or 7 years old at the time. Your mom remained a very good friend to my parents over the years, Take care and enjoy the happy memories,

Condolences to Mrs. Martin’s Family. She lived a long and beautiful life. We have many fond memories of her when our son went to Paradise Elementary, she was principal. May she rest in peace.

Brian, Grant and families, sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. She sure was a wonderful lady. She was principal at the school in Paradise when I started school. You are so fortunate to have her for all those years. May she rest in peace.

Brian and Grant and families, I’m sad to read that your Mom has passed.
I have many fond memories of her!
She was a lovely lady!
I have known her for all my life it seems, as she was my teacher at the Beach School and also our leader in JA and GA.
A few years ago I saw pictures of her with many of us during those times!
Over the years we ran into to each other in St JOHN’S and it was so nice to see her.
I am spending the winter in Florida and sadly cannot visit the funeral home.
My sympathies to you both!

Grant , Brian and families
So sorry to hear about Aunt Margo. She was such a wonderful and loving person.
Wish we could be there to share in many cherished memories. She was well loved and will be sadly missed.
Thinking of you at this difficult time.
Betty and Leo

My love for this extraordinary beautiful ‘force of nature’ is immeasurable. Since my cherished Mother Evelyn died (so young), Aunt Margo has helped fill a great void -she has been my inspiration and mentor – I called her ‘Mom’.
From the opposite side of Canada, I join with everyone in prayer and gratitude as I lift my heart in celebration of a lovely life well lived.
