She was born August 10, 1916 in Moosehorn, MB. She accepted the Lord Jesus into her life and that same year she married Fred Meisner. After spending the initial years of their marriage in Moosehorn, they moved to Winnipeg in 1954. They attended Grant Memorial Baptist Church and were actively engaged as a family. Her life centered on her faith, her family and lots of fun. Mom loved scripture and instilled scripture memory into the lives of her children.
Mom's life was characterized by hospitality, generosity and serving her family. Mom and Dad retired to Lindenholm in 1989 and after Dad's death Mom moved to Sterling House, then to Calvary Place, where she passed away. We are grateful for the staff's loving care.
Predeceased by her parents, husband, two infant sons, a son-in-law and most of her siblings. She leaves to grieve her four daughters, Lorraine (John), Donna, Joy (Ken), Kathy (Abe) and her three sons, Ron (Judy), Paul (Alice) and Lorne (Esther). Included are 26 grandchildren; 72 great-grandchildren; sisters, Evelyn Kohut and Carol Perry, other family members and many friends.

Condolences & Memories (8 entries)

My heart is broken as I have just learned of Auntie Martha’ passing. I remember wonderful visits to their home on summer vacations. The love that she shared with all of us, the meals, laughter, praying, church, lots of letters. She was a great letter writer, her wit and humour. So many beautiful memories of a great lady who has earned her place at God’s table. Thanks for the memories Auntie, May You Rest In Peace. - Posted by: Susan Meisner Bjerke (Niece) on: Aug 10, 2021
Deepest sympathies Lorraine, Donna, Ron, Paul, Joy, Lorne, and Cathy and your families. What a beautiful Tribute/Service to Mom (Aunty Martha) today. Her Love for Jesus shone through today, as it has shone through many of our lives. She was the first person I called when I accepted Jesus as my Saviour because I knew at that moment she was very instrumental through All her Prayers. We will miss her Dearly here but know it’s just temporary. Cyndee and Ron - Posted by: Cyndee and Ron St Hilaire (Neice) on: Aug 07, 2021
Remember visiting them when I was a kid (about 65 years ago) and we lived in Winnipeg and have such fond memories of the family. Thoughts and prayers are with the family! From family of Walter and Laura Gall Interesting enough she passed on Mom's birthday and I sure my Mom is welcoming her with open arms! - Posted by: Doris Gall Wegwitz (52nd cousin) on: Jul 31, 2021
We would play the harmonica and sing gospel songs beside Martha and she would share with us how she and her husband began the welcoming committee Grant Memorial Baptist Church. We used to visit her every Thursday afternoon for several years before we were stopped by the pandemic and so sorry that that would be the end of us visiting with her. We are going to miss her. Our love to her family Elizabeth (Betty) and Howard Unger - Posted by: Howard & Elizabeth Unger (visiting friends at Calvary Place) on: Jul 31, 2021
Martha was one of those people who make a tremendous impact on your life, as she certainly did on mine. What a gift of hospitality she had. I don’t know how many times we were invited to the Meisner home after Church. I still have a recipe or two written down by her. She was such a Godly woman who loved her Lord, her family and her friends. I thank God that I had the privilege of knowing her and the family during our days at Grant Memorial. I am writing in 1st person because my beloved Don went to be with the Lord in January of this year. He is fortunate to be in a better place. Perhaps he and Martha are rejoicing together. My love and condolences to the family. With Christian love, Veea Wild - Posted by: Vera Wild (Friend ) on: Jul 31, 2021
While visiting my mother. Fern Pfaff, also a resident at Calvary Place Personal Care Home, we would often talk to Martha. Martha was a very friendly, outgoing person. My mother and I joined in a sing along with Arina, the "guitar lady" who led a group of residents in the singing of hymns on Fridays or Saturdays. Martha knew all the hymns and belted out the tunes with the rest of the group. My condolences to Martha's family. - Posted by: June Pospsihell (acquaintance from Calvary Place Personal Care Home) on: Jul 31, 2021
