Peacefully at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre on Tuesday, October 9, 2018 in her 71st year. Martha Mary, precious first daughter of the late James and Daidy (Alcorn) Flavelle. Dearest mother of Kimberley Delius and her son-in-law Rob of Bath, U.K. Reunited with her beloved husband Paul Schram (deceased 1994). Loving and loved sister of Lindsay Richards (Jamie) and Sheila Savage (John Jacques). Caring and loving aunt of Jay Richards. She will be lovingly remembered by both the Alcorn and Flavelle families. Martha was blessed to have so many incredibly loving, supportive and devoted friends in her life. Mum was born in Montreal, Quebec and grew up in Galt, Ontario (Cambridge). She had an outstanding, thirty-five year career at Sunnybrook Hospital where she thrived; culminating her work as Administrative Assistant to now retired Dr. Barry McLellan, Director of Emergency Services, Base Hospital Program (Paramedic Program) and Trauma Research. While in Toronto, Mum was an active member of the Junior League and Garden Club. After her retirement she returned to Galt to enjoy her home, her garden, her friends, her painting and her avid interest in reading biographies, history books and novels. She was also dedicated to the daily news and the weather forecast! Mum was our family historian; she could relate stories about distant and current members of the family, on both sides. Mum lived a selfless life with dignity, grace and humour; words cannot describe how deeply she will be missed. Martha's life will be celebrated with a Visitation at the T. Little Funeral Home, 223 Main Street, Cambridge (519-623-1290) on Sunday, October 14, 2018 from 2 - 4 p.m. There will be a private family service and interment. As expressions of sympathy, please consider a donation in Martha's memory to Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.
