Mom was born in Holland, MB on October 1, 1952 to John Martin and Alice Cameron. She was raised in Swan Lake First Nation for several years until moving to Morden, MB where she attended School before moving to Ste. Anne, MB

It was during that time that mom met her husband and lifelong partner Edward Doucette. Together they had four children Caroyn, Michael, Gail and Raymond.

Mom stayed home for several years while raising her children. She enjoyed gardening, canning, sewing and a good game of marbles with her friends. Mom and Dad moved to Morden in 1985 where she worked at the Tupperware plant until she returned back to school to obtain her grade 12. Mom was a very smart lady and enjoyed school. She obtained her Health Care Aide Certificate as well as a Support Worker Certificate.  Mom worked for DOCFS for several years before accepting a job as Home Care Coordinator for Swan Lake First Nation. She loved working with and for her community and was a huge advocate for the Elders. Mom enjoyed doing home visits, she said it reminded her of years gone by.

Mom was a kind, caring and compassionate women and very straight forward. She had a strong spirituality and believed and practiced her traditional teachings. Mom was a very respected elder in her community who was always willing to listen or share a good story over a cup of coffee. She was a pillar to our family who was deeply loved and will be missed beyond measure.

Rest easy Mama.
