MARTIN, Louisa Nixon Martin - Obituary | Print |

MARTIN, Louisa Nixon -

1926 - 2014

Louisa passed away October 2, 2014 at The Dunfield Retirement Residence.

Louisa was a real force of nature, a person who got things done. She was a very kind- hearted and generous woman with true Christian spirit who was genuinely eager to help anyone who was in trouble or down on their luck. Proactive and energetic, she was a warm and feisty character who lived life to the full; an adventure in a foreign land was nearly always on the horizon.

Born in Glasgow, Louisa lived through the Depression and served as a Wren in WWII before coming to Canada. She was one of the first women in an electronics role at IBM. Feminist and independent for her time, she married Victor at the then ripe old age of 38 and managed to combine family and career.

Louisa kept the books and was front of house for their accounting practice while ferrying her children to lessons and appointments - she somehow managed to do it all. Her other interests were reading, travelling, fine dining, her Eastern Star membership and her regular visits to St. Andrew's Church.

Being Scottish, New Year's was a priority and her annual parties where 3 generations of amateur vocalists were accompanied by the in house band were enjoyed by all. Louisa will be dearly missed by daughter Louisa, son Paul, grandchildren Jesse, Sara and Aleigh, brother Sam, sister Nan, niece Lorraine and many other relatives and friends.  

Memorial service will be held in Toronto on Wednesday, October 8th.

If desired, donations in Louisa's memory may be made to the charity of your choice.
