Martha Foster (formerly Kanarek; Stang) passed suddenly on January 23, 2022 in her longtime home city of Calgary. Her deceased parents were Anna and Stanley Kanarek. She is survived by her three sisters, two brothers, as well children Aaron Stang and Chauntel Antonello.
Martha’s final twenty five years of life were devoted to her job as a Manager with TCT Graphic Products and lengthy employment at Families First Support Services. Her iron clad work ethic was truly admired and her undeniable charm touched many, many lives.
Martha was a kind soul that would offer you the shirt off of her back, often placing herself last on the priority list. Her laugh and sense of positivity were truly infectious among all who knew her.
Martha spent her spare time with her family and fur-grandkids, beautifying her garden and yard, cooking and serving whomever she could, hiking, dancing, and taking trips to the tropics and mountains.
Martha will be laid to rest at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Cemetery in Athabasca County later this year. Beloved mother, sister, and friend; her presence will be forever missed. Rest easy Martha.
