MARTHA HELEN DEMBICKY, of Brant, 78, beloved mother, passed away peacefully Saturday evening, April 7, 2018 at Covenant Hospital in Saginaw. Martha was born on March 22, 1940 in Saginaw and adopted by Mario and Betty Janni. She graduated from Frankenmuth High School and attended airline school. Martha was employed by the Bell Telephone Company and while working there she met and married the love of her life, Jack Dembicky, on June 19, 1965. He preceded her in death in 2007. Martha devoted her life to her husband and their children, Jack and Betty. She was a devoted Christian and represented Christ with her wonderful caring spirit. Martha helped anyone she ever met. She loved cooking, baking for her family and friends, gardening and canning the fruits and vegetables that she grew. Martha was an accomplished knitter and loved to crochet. She would knit a scarf or hat for anyone and donated many to the homeless or those in need. When she was not busy, she loved to go north for recreation. Martha also loved angels, as anyone who ever visited her home knew. Martha led by example for her love of her family, friends, animals, and for her lord and savior. She was the sweetest and most giving person you could meet and she truly earned her wings. She will be dearly missed by everyone whom she touched.
