MARTIN, Anne Marie (Sisolak)
June 30, 1956 – July 4, 2019
Passed away very peacefully at home following a lengthy illness on Thursday, July 4th, 2019. Anne Marie was the loving and caring wife of John and they would have celebrated 40 years of marriage on September 8th, 2019. Beloved mother of Christa (Ryan Kilbourne), Geoff (Melanie), Sarah, Laura and Alan. Special grandma to Cohen, Bennett, Finley, Declan and Rosie. Cherished and loved daughter of Mary Sisolak and late husband Steve (2006), and dear sister of Cathy, Steve (Kathy) and Dan (Liz). Sister-in-law to Rob and Johanne Martin, Greg and Tina Martin and Paul and Joanne Martin, and aunt to nephews and a niece.
Special lifelong friends Mary, Agnese and Joy were with Anne Marie throughout her illness and celebrated her 63rd birthday with her. She treasured your friendship. Thoughts, prayers and visits from Anne Marie’s many other dear friends and family members were an invaluable source of comfort to her. Anne Marie graduated from the University of Guelph in 1979 and dedicated her life to raising five children. She loved her family, was most comfortable in her home and looked forward to spending time at the cottage in Port Elgin. She enjoyed music, preparing meals, relaxing in her green recliner and delegating chores. Anne Marie had a strong faith in God and lived her life accordingly. Her unbreakable spirit and enduring strength brought her peace in times of need. God let her fall peacefully asleep on her Dzedo’s birthday.
There are countless wonderful people to thank who assisted the family throughout the years. For their ongoing care and compassion, we want to acknowledge Dr. David Rosebush and team, Dr. Andrew Burke and team (Guelph Renal Clinic), the caring staff at Guelph General Hospital, Freeport Hospital (Kitchener) and University Hospital (London), as well as the dedicated PSWs, home nursing care staff and healthcare professionals.
