Brenda Joyce (McBee) Martin was born January 15, 1943 and raised on a farm near Hinton, Oklahoma. She attended a one-room schoolhouse at East Walnut community school. She married Jimmie Martin, also from the Hinton area, on October 11, 1958. They moved to OKC where Jimmie worked. They moved to Yukon when Debbie, their oldest child, was starting school.
Brenda gave her life to Christ in her early twenties when she and Jimmie began attending church in Yukon. They are members of Discovery Church and were active in Ambassadors, a senior adult group.
Brenda loved to travel. She and Jimmie saw most of the USA and some of Canada traveling around in vans, trailers and RVs. She traveled to Alaska, Spain, Mexico, Israel and has taken numerous cruises with friends in recent years.
Brenda devoted her time and attention to her family, faithfully caring for others whenever there was a need. She loved keeping her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and spent many hours in hospitals and homes, sitting with and caring for family and friends, taking meals or running errands and doing whatever she could to serve.
