MARTIN, Maureen Lee
1946 - 2013
We regret to announce the passing of our Mom, Grandma/Grantini, sister, aunt and friend, Maureen Lee Martin (nee Brun) on January 12, 2013. Born to Paul and Mona Brun, Maureen was the eldest of four children, Paul (Sandy), Robert (Pamela), and David (Karyn). Maureen married her one and only true love, Walter Martin of Edinburgh, Scotland on November 4th, 1967. Together, she and her beloved husband had two children, David (Robyn) and Suzanne (Andy), and shared eleven magnificent years together before his death in 1978. Maureen mourned the loss of Walter for the remainder of her life while lovingly keeping his memory alive for the benefit of her children and grandchildren (Alex, Kricket, Trafford, Chloe, Sidney and Caris). In her career as a food consultant, Maureen worked alongside her cherished mother, Mona, for several decades. Together, their amazing relationship transcended work and family to become a pivotal force in both of their lives. Much like her mother, Maureen had an unwavering devotion to those she loved, a great passion for good food, a dynamic personality that spoke volumes, and a deep compassion for those less fortunate. Her advocacy for those with blindness and disability was a true commitment for Maureen. Maureen leaves behind a legacy of her love in her children and the very special grandchildren she truly adored. Our family extends a special thank you to Maureen's many wonderful friends and support workers for their special care, friendship and love. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Foundation Fighting Blindness. A celebration of Maureen's life will take place on January 27, 2012 from 2 to 5pm at The Pinnacle Hotel, 138 Victory Ship Way, North Vancouver. Mom, we promise to keep your memory alive for our children, to make them smile with our recollections of you, and to ensure they never doubt your unconditional love for them. You kept your promise to Dad and we will forever love you for it.
