It is with heavy hearts that we wish to announce the passing of Martha Edith Sikora (nee Penzel) on Tuesday, November 24th, 2015, at the age of 88. She is survived by her dear Papa (husband) of 66 years, Guenther Sikora. Loving mother to Horst-Ulrich (predeceased) (Monique Lapierre), Reinhard (Evelyn), and Marcus. Cherished Oma to Lindsey, Trevor (Jamie-Lea), Marissa, Thomas (Mandy) and Illyanna (Josh). She will be sadly missed by many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. Martha had a deeply rooted faith in God, believing firmly in His teachings. This unwavering faith was present in her day to day interactions with everyone, with whom she shared her beautiful soul. Her kindness and huge heart were well known, as her home and arms were open to many. Her happiest moments were spent with her family in her garden. A celebration of Martha’s life will take place at Valley Pentecostal Church on Saturday, December 5th, 2015, at 1 p.m. Family and friends are invited to attend the service, and share memories and stories of Martha’s life. In lieu of flowers donations to the Valley Pentecostal Building Fund, 231 Martha St, Hanmer, ON P3P 1G4 or charity of your choice, would be appreciated.
