Helen Martin Obituary


Nov. 24, 1946 - Jan. 13, 2024

“Calm at Last”


It is with great sorrow that the family of Helen Forbes Martin (nee Abbott) announces her passing quietly at home on Saturday Jan. 13, 2024. She is lovingly remembered by her husband of fifty-five years, Richard, and their daughter Deborah as well as grandsons Duncan Hackel and Douglas Martin, sister Linda Williams, North Carolina, nephew Stewart Williams, Florida, and niece Kimberley Bryant, Alabama. In addition, there were other extended family members.

Helen was predeceased by her parents, Stewart and Nancy Abbott. Helen will be remembered for her forthright opinions; it was either black or white; no grey areas there. People who met her for the first time would soon come to enjoy her straightforwardness; you always knew where you stood with her.

Helen had been dealing with lung issues for the past several years and while she courageously fought the disease, her health steadily declined, and she became bedridden; a far semblance of the vibrant, energetic woman she once was. A “whirling dervish” would have been an appropriate description. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to be made to a charity of your choice.

A Celebration of Life is planned in May. For more information and online condolences, please contact Highland Park Funeral Home, Peterborough, Ont. (1-800-672-6164)

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
