Our hearts are full of gratitude as we say thank you to family members and friends during the recent passing of our mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Ella O. Martens.

Thank you for all the stories of paying it forward and how Ella touched your lives. Thank you for all the support of our family with food, visits, special stories, memorials and cards.

We want to express special appreciation to Akkerman-Ingebrand Funeral Home, Calvary Lutheran Church, Pastor Oelfke, bell choir members, Kerry Long and church ladies for the meal provided.

We also want to express great thanks to the staff at St. Croix Hospice, St. Clare’s Community Rehab and Eastwood Senior Living for Ella’s care.
