Martha Evenson

November 20,1913 - March 8, 2001

With her family by her side, Marth Evenson (nee Link) passed away on March 8, 2001 at the Tabor Home in Morden.

Martha was born on November 20, 1913 in the 1-6 district one of eight daughters and three sons of Gustav and Juliana Link. She was predeceased by her husband Clarence, by her parents, her brothers Ewald, Emmanuel and Herbert, and sisters Bertha, Eleanor, Olga, Wanda and Dena.

She was dearly loved and will be sorely missed by her daughter Dorothy and her husband Elmer Strong; her son Elmer and his wife Catherine; her granddaughter Debora and her husband Douglas Maddock; Grandson Scott and his wife Carrie; great grandsons Dacota and Dallas Maddock; her sister Edith Roberts and Tillie Link and numerous nieces and nephews.

Martha grew up in the 1-6 district, attended Elk Creek School and the Emmanuel Evangelical Church. She married Clarence Evenson in 1932 and they lived for a time in the 1-5 district. In 1948 they moved to their home south of Morden. Following her husband’s death on June 30, 1950, she carried on tending cattle and managing the farm, which is still worked by Elmer.

After she left the farm in 1961, Martha moved to Winnipeg where she worked with the Victorian Order of Nurses. She returned to Morden and worked at the Morden District General Hospital for a number of years. She moved to Tabor Apartments following her retirement. For the past seven years she resided at Tabor Home.

As a mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Martha took great pleasure in her family, her garden and as a member of the Christ Lutheran Church Board and choir. The many quilts she made, the garments she sewed and the sweaters and afghans she knitted and crocheted are all evidence of the beautiful works she created.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Society or the Morden Area Foundation.

The funeral was held at St. Thomas Anglican Church in Morden on Sunday, March 11, 2001 at 3:00pm with Rev. Brian Minaker officiating. Interment in Hillside Cemetery. Wiebe Funeral Chapel, Morden.
