Marty enjoyed a long and compassionate nursing career, after graduating from Toronto General Hospital Nursing school in 1965. Marty was a lifelong chorister and an active member of St. Martin's Church and choir, along with many other choirs over the years. As a nature enthusiast, salsa dancer, gardener, photographer, baker, traveler, and a hippie at heart, Marty lived life to the fullest.
