Martha was born on September 24, 1923, to Anton and Amelia (nee Hinz) Richels at Annaheim, SK. Growing up in the “Pioneer Days”, she learned how to be a hard worker at a young age, helping with domestic duties inside the house and with chores out on the farm including milking cows, raising chickens for meat and eggs, gardening, and preserving vegetables for the winter months. She always had a love for animals; her black lab Rex held a special place in her heart. A woman of strong faith, Martha attended Mass every Sunday, and had her 25-year badge as a member of the C.W.L. In her leisure time, she loved traveling to British Columbia and the United States, and spending a day at the Manitou Springs Spa near Watrous. Most of all, she was known for her thoughtfulness in remembering the birthdays of family and friends, blessing them with a card and cake, and always being available to lend a helping hand.

Martha will be lovingly remembered by her son, William (Margaret) Richels; grandchildren: Chad Richels (friend Colleen and her children Cheyanne and Levi), and Dean (Alicia) Richels; great-grandchildren: Riley, Chantel, Brook, and Wyatt; brother, Alvin (Val) Richels; and by many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by two grandsons: Terry Richels and Billy Richels; her parents, Anton and Amelia (nee Hinz) Richels; brothers and sisters: Leo Richels, Alma Dale, Joey Richels, Alphonse Richels, Alois Richels, Evelyn Richels, and Elsie Johb.
