Margareta Martin Obituary
Margareta Kristina Elisabet Martin Died at home on March 27, 2013 after a short and heroic battle with cancer. Margareta is survived by her loving husband, Dr. Stephen Martin; her four children, Mikael Bluhm (Apple), Louise Dejohn (Francois), Andreas Martin (Wendy), and Karolin Wade (Christopher); her 11 beloved grandchildren; and a large extended family. Margareta was born in 1945 in Örebro, Sweden to Gustav and Anna Elisabet Lindstr”m. After finishing school, Margareta worked as a secretary at Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm, Sweden. In 1977, Margareta finally said "yes" to Steve's marriage proposal, moved to California, and carried on being a wonderful full-time mother. Margareta enjoyed spending summers at the family home in northern Sweden and traveling to Thailand in the fall to be with her eldest son's family. Margareta loved to travel, ski, laugh, tell stories, and read crime novels, but above all, she loved spending time with her grandchildren. She was a loving, funny, warm, kindhearted person that will be missed dearly. Margareta's inner and outer beauty radiated and cheerfully affected all who encountered her - friends, fellow skiers, shopkeepers, the folks at the Ross Post Office, her children's schoolmates and their parents. Margareta was preceded in death by her parents, and her brother, B”rje Lindstr”m. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to .
