Tribute

Martha Anne Olson (nee Ingraham)

March 16th, 1935 – June 15th, 2018

On the evening of June 15th Martha (Mom) peacefully slipped away from us.  She was predeceased by her husband Leonard of 47 years and is survived by her children; James (Jim) Olson, Terry and Tammy (TnT) Olson, Laurie and Garry Derby, Mike Olson and Stef. Grandchildren; Jody Lamoureux and Cyntha, Cody Derby and Felicia, Spencer Derby and Tyne, Jesse Olson and Haley, Chase Olson and Morgan, Sadie Peters and James. Great-grandchildren; Akien, Henry, Stella, Marcus, Noah and Maren.  Martha’s early years were spent moving from mining camp to mining camp as her father was a civil engineer.  Settling down for the most part in Squamish, BC where she played on the high school basketball team.  Martha studied for a career in teaching which brought her to Powell River to teach her first classes in Lund.  She will be dearly missed by friends and family including the gang at the hospital auxiliary economy shop and the countless children she taught in elementary school.  Martha loved her yard and gardens but most of all she loved her large family.  Martha requested no service.  Donations made to the Heart and Stroke foundation would be appreciated.

Rest peacefully Mom.
