BIRKETT, Martha Ann

1960 – 2020

Our dearest Martha.  Grandmother, mother, daughter, wife, sister, aunt, and healer.  Medicine woman, abundant with inspiration.  

She had the ability to touch and capture your heart with enduring empathy.  Loving unconditionally and consistently.

Supporting so many in her magical ways; exemplifying love and strength.  Tender yet strong.

Fairy godmother to children.   Especially her grandchildren where her purity radiated.  Protector and champion of the innocent and vulnerable.

Her thirst for adventure.  Her fearless exploration of life in the determined way she wanted to live.  A graceful balance of strong will and compassion.        

She has transcended the physical world to carry on her mission in more powerful ways than ever possible.  She is free and her work continues.  As the eagle soars high above, her spirit is much stronger than it could be before.  

Dearest Martha.  You will be missed.  We will cherish your wisdom and magic.  We remember you laughing, radiant and gorgeous.  We remember you smiling, dancing and free.

A Ceremony to Honour Martha’s Life will be held at the Birkett Ranch (272240 Grand Valley Road, Cochrane, AB) on Wednesday, September 09, 2020. Viewing will commence at 11:00 am with the ceremony starting promptly at 12:00 noon. Those attending are invited to wear white or light coloured clothing to honour that Light that is Martha. We also invite you to bring your favourite flower to leave for Martha that we will spread on the land that she loved. A private family interment will take place at Cochrane Cemetery, following the ceremony.

    My dear Martha, (aka Baby Jesus Woman),
    My heart aches for your beautiful family and friendships. Your passing was so sudden and we’re all in state of shock. We’ve shared almost 30 years of close friendship. Your love of life, spiritual quest and ever present smile & laughter will be missed until my dying day. Our visits were always deep & meaningful. Playfulness also came naturally for us, we always found things to laugh about and laugh we did! We were one another’s confidantes and solved many a query. I’ve been blessed to walk part of the journey with you. Goodbye my forever friend, I will miss you more than words could ever express. You will always hold space in my heart forever and always.
    My deepest condolences to your beautiful family.

    My deepest condolences to Marta’s entire family. As a friend of Debbie’s and through her I got to know of Marta’s beautiful energy and spirit without ever having the chance to meet her in person. I greatly admired Marta’s strength and tenacity when I followed her online on her Giddy Up for Wishes from Ottawa to Calgary. I knew that she was someone very special to do something of that magnitude for others. Sending lots of white light to her and heartfelt prayers to her family and friends.

    Sara, Shauna, Sam, Ken, Deb, Oma and family…

    The words about to be written here cannot give justice to the woman we mourn. Our Marta was a living monument to us all, always ready to hear us and love us. We were so blessed to have her in our lives – she took us in her heart. It is what made her who she was, by filling us up with the love, respect and nutrition we needed she became the strong Marta we know. In all ways humanly possible Marta’s world was those she loved. She carried us all in her and she will carry her love and still watch over us all from her place beside God and the stars of the universe. For our Martha is a son of God and a child of universe. An infinite being of love and light! Always to be loved and forever missed, she is within us everyday in spirit. My friend I will miss you every day!!!

    Our Hearts go out to Ken, Sarah, Shawna, Samantha, and all the grandchildren. We were blessed to have been able to watch the girls grow up. We shared a few camping and hunting adventures with lots of laughs around the camp fire.

    Martha you were like the Phoenix always rising up to any challenge and surpassing all. We will truly miss your laughter – lt always came from deep within bursting out and drawing us in. Your soul is free now, and I know we will feel you and hear you in the sunshine and when the stars come out at night.

    Until we meet again..

    P.S. ( Marta will know). Quote from Dad. You can put a new coat of paint on a old barn, but it’s still an old barn.

    My dearest sister Marta…I don’t even know what to say…I am so heart broken…we were so different but we eventually agreed to disagree…you were the funnest and craziest sibling ever.

Good bye my lovely sister xoxo

    How blessed I am to have met Martha at her Alchemy Crystal Bowl display at the New Earth Expo in 2014 or 2015. As with so many, I have had a soul sister love relationship with her since that meeting. We did not see each other often, yet each time we did, we deepened our knowing of one another. I hold Martha’s family in love and prayer during this time of saying goodbye to the physical presence of their beloved and adjusting to life with Martha in the unseen realms.

  33. On 07/09/2020 at 7:14 am Penny and Alex Vita-Finzi Said:

    Heaven has gained another angel, and, although we lost an amazing, inspirational, strong, caring and funny person, Martha will live with us daily not only in our memories, but in her beautiful, wonderful family. Martha – you have made a difference in our world, and touched the lives of many.

I did not know much of Martha’s recent work, but being the light that lit up a room; I can not think of anything more fitting for her to be involved in. God must have needed an Angel.

I feel blessed to have known this vibrant and beautiful person. I have such fond memories, especially her contagious laughter, she was a remarkable lady. Our deepest Condolences.

    Martha was able to share her gift in such a unique way, it brought many people together with her “singing bowls.”
    Martha had posted about winning a bowl in a contest back in 2019. I am the person whom the computer had chosen and having filmed the visit with Martha, her family have approved the sharing of it here.

    Words could not begin to express how saddened we were to hear of Martha’s passing. She was a giant inspiration to so many children’s lives she touched as head councilor at the Bates Bar J ranch, as was Ken, in the same position. She left a trail of deeply positively touched people all across Canada with her wonderfully executed Giddy Up for Wishes ride for the Children’s Wish Foundation which we had the privilege of participating in with her some of the time. There was nothing but love and enjoyment for the entire time we traveled together. Our deepest condolences to Ken and her entire family.

    Ken, Sara, Shauna, Samantha and Grandchildren; We send you all our heartfelt sympathies as you go through your journey to make sense of losing Marta, your soul-mate, friend and mother. We truly hope that you draw on the strengths that she so deeply cherished throughout her family-life, her work and her friendships! Marta is already truly missed!

    Dear Ken and family. We were shocked to hear of Martha’s passing, our deepest sympathies go out to you and your family. Martha was a one of a kind lady. Every time we would see her she had a big smile, a hug and talked about her family and her newest endeavors she had taken on. She will be sadly missed in the community. Be strong and know we are thinking of you all.

    Ann & Jim

    I am so sorry to hear of Martha’s passing. Her worked moved me, and inspired me to make changes in my own life. She was so full of joy, and love, that it is hard to imagine never seeing her beautiful smile again. Happy trails, beautiful Martha. Rea
