Martha Lesperance

Martha Lesperance, at the age of 90 passed away peacefully with her family by her side on May 18, 2019.  She was born October 24, 1928 to Rudolph & Natalie Kelm and raised in Stuttgart, Germany.

Martha journeyed to Canada in 1949 to Pearce, AB to reunite with her sister Millie.  It was there she met her true love Thomas Lesperance & they were married on December 2, 1950.  They moved to Kamloops, BC in July 1964 with their beautiful daughters.

For many years Martha worked chambermaiding at the Village Hotel, but her true loves in life were her family, gardening and baking.  She was a dedicated mother first and foremost and she treasured her role as Oma.  She was the definition of hard work, independence and strength.

Martha will be tremendously missed. Predeceased by her husband Thomas Lesperance and grandson Brandon Tate; survived by daughters Marlene (Gary) Stanley, Teresa (Charlie) Tate & Bonny Lesperance; grandchildren Tammy (Tony) Marsico, Michelle (Wayne) Quenneville, Candice Stanley (Norm) & Christopher Stanley; 6 Great Grandchildren, her brother in Germany and her many nieces and nephews.  Whom she loved dearly.

The family would like to thank the Staff at Pine Grove Care Centre for the care they provided her, and they would also like to thank the Kamloops Funeral Home.

There will be no service held as Martha’s request was that you remember her for the way she touched all our hearts.

for the way she touched all our hearts.
