It is with deep sadness that the family of Martha Renz announces that Martha left this earth to go to her Eternal Home on March 7, 2014 at the age of 84 years. She was born in a mud shack in the Jansen District to Carolina and Ferdinand Winslow. Mom's greatest joys in life were her children whether it was shopping with Val & Candace, visiting with Gail, or baking with Cindy, Mom loved time with her girls. Sheldon just had to exist to be her "Golden Boy!" She was predeceased by her husband of sixty years, Reinholt in 2012; her parents, brother Adolph (Helen), sister Wilhelmina (Sam) Block and twin sister Frieda (Herman) Welk. Mom is survived by four daughters and one son: Valerie (Keith), Gail, Candace, Cindy (Stu) and Sheldon (Rhonda). She is also survived by grandchildren Jaylene (Kirk), Stacey (Mick), Trisha (Steve), Mark, Michael (Shealaine) and Brenan (Caroline); 13 great-grandchildren; sisters Olga and Helen, brother-in-law Robert (Karen), sister-in-law Lynn and family friend Ken Haviland.
