    • MARTIN, Alice Angeline (Drudge) Peacefully at her home at Pinehaven Nursing Home in Waterloo on June 12 in her 101st year. Lovingly remembered by her children, Paul and Judy Martin of St. Jacobs; Shirley and Cal Larsen of Labrador, Australia; Carol Weber of Kitchener; Ella and Laverne Brubacher of St. Jacobs; Ruth and John Brenneman of Kitchener; and Rhoda and Klaus Seibert of Mount Forest; her sister Ada Holzschuh of Kitchener; her sister-in-law Merle Haney of Waterloo; and daughter- in-law Sandra Martin and Harold Rudy of Baden. She will be fondly remembered by her grandchildren Lesley (Kevin) Broughm, Jeff (Jeanne) Martin, Stephen Martin, Laura (John) Nova, Kimberley (Jason) Goodman, Rachel (Paul) Willms, Joel (Catherine Mellinger) Brubacher, Michael (Stephanie) Brenneman, Chris Brenneman, Brad (Wendy) Martin, and Sabrina (Adam Hussey) Martin. Great-grandmother of Amanda, Micah and Jesse Broughm, Tyler Martin, Kayley, Matthew, Nicholas, Emily and Hannah Nova, Zachary and Jacqueline Goodman, Jonah and Alice Willms, Liam Hussey, Leo Brubacher, Zoe Martin and Jacoby Brenneman. She was also a special "grandma" to the Leah and John Boehm family. Predeceased by her husband, Moses Martin, who died in 1995; her son Richard who died in 2009; her brothers Frank and Lewis Drudge, her sister Ella Derry, and her son-in-law Roger Weber. Born on June 15, 1914 in Claremont, near Stouffville, Ontario, Alice was the oldest child of John and Lucinda (Reesor) Drudge. The family moved to Linwood when Alice was young. She married Moses Martin of St. Jacobs on October 19, 1937. They lived in Waterloo until 1943 and then moved to St. Jacobs. In 1952 the house beside Moses Martin's Garage was built, and they lived there until they retired to a condo in Kitchener in 1987. Moses died in 1995. In 2000 she moved to Lanark Place Retirement Home. In 2006 she moved to Pinehaven Nursing Home. Alice was a devoted, loving mother and friend to many. She liked to send cheer to others by way of cards, letters or flowers. Her hobbies included embroidery, visiting, and gardening. Because of her passion for flowers, she became known as "the flower lady" at her condo, Lanark Place, and Pinehaven. Alice will always be remembered for her joyful spirit, her generous heart and her caring for others. A special thank you to the caring staff at Pinehaven Nursing Home; and her "Shepherd" from St. Jacobs Mennonite Church, Gloria Shantz. Visitation will be held at the Waterloo Funeral Home , 617 King St. N., Waterloo (519.888.7700) on Thursday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Private family burial at the St. Jacobs Mennonite Cemetery. The service will be held at St. Jacobs Mennonite Church, 1310 King Street, St. Jacobs on Friday, June 16th at 11:00 a.m. Donations to MEDA or the House of Friendship in her memory would be appreciated by the family. "My mother kept a garden, a garden of the heart She planted all the good things that gave my life a start I am my mother's garden, I am her legacy I hope today she feels the love reflected back from me."
