Martha was born at Sandy Point on the homestead of her parents, Jacob and Christina Bitz. She married Louie Job on September 21, 1930 and they lived on the Job homestead from 1930-1938 until moving into Burstall then later to Medicine Hat in 1951. They had three sons, Jacob, John and Bud. Martha kept herself busy by gardening, crocheting, quilting, canning and baking. Then the grandchildren came along and took up most of her time, but she still had time to do the things that she loved doing. She always loved having her grandchildren to spend time with and always enjoyed having all of them around her. She would always have something to eat if someone dropped in for a visit or she always had a bed for them to sleep in.
