Huberte M. Martin

February 23, 1915 — November 17, 2020

Born in Bouctouche, New Brunswick, Canada, on February 23, 1915, she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Lydie (Bernard) Maillet immigrating from Canada to the United States at ten years old.  Bertha was a housekeeper employed by several businesses over the years until her retirement.

Bertha was a parishioner of Annunciation Parish/ Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Church of Gardner and the Mt. Carmel Rehabilitation and Nursing Home Chapel. She was a lady of deep faith and loved going to church and being in prayer. Bertha was an outgoing individual and enjoyed going for walks and socializing with people. But the time that she adored the most was spent with her family.
