Marta Bovingdon

In Loving Memory

Marta Emma Bovingdon

Passed away August 30, 2015

Marta was born in Mexico City where she later met an English traveler, William Bovingdon. He swept her off her feet and convinced her to move to Canada. In 1957, she made the trip to Kitimat where they raised their family.

Marta was predeceased by her husband in 1981. She is survived by her three children: Josephine (Brian), William (Michelle), and Michael (Sandra), and her grandchildren: Joshua (Jennifer), Jaclyn (Allen), James, Brayden, Sydney, and Noah, and her great grandson: Emmett.

Marta was a wonderful person and very loved by her family. She enjoyed traveling home to Mexico to visit her family, playing card games with her grandchildren, and going to aquasizes with her friends. She could be relied on in times of need and always knew exactly what to say to put us at ease. She exuded confidence and had a calming nature. We will always remember the sayings she taught us.

Espero que duermas con los angelitos.

Te quiero muchisimo y para siempre.
