Patricia Ann "Patsy" Martin, 96 years and 6 months old, a long-time resident of Madisonville, TX, passed away on Thursday, April 9, 2020 in Nacogdoches, TX. Private graveside services are scheduled for 1PM on Saturday, April 18, 2020 at Willowhole Cemetery in North Zulch, TX.

Patsy, as she was known to her family and friends, was born on October 9, 1923 in Stamps, AR to Frank Greenwood and Minnie Lorene (Montgomery) McMurrough. She grew up in Leona, TX, and for many years worked for The Galena Park Independent School District. After retiring to Madisonville, TX she and her husband became a members of the First Baptist Church, where she was a faithful and active member for many years.

Patsy was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Fred Davis Martin, and her son, Davis Jarrel Martin.

Patsy is survived by her son, Fred Ray Martin; her daughter-in-law, Pauline; her grandson, John Edward Martin; her granddaughter, Felicia Marie Martin and her wife Monica Garcia; her great granddaughter, Isabella Garcia; her granddaughter, Amy Smith; two great-grandsons; and her brother, Bo McMurrough.

Patsy was a survivor who lived through the "Great Depression", World War II, the "Cold War", the tumultuous "60's", various social and cultural revolutions, booms and recessions, personal hardships, and losses. Through it all, she was a cheerful, loving, strong, and fierce supporter of her family and loved ones, and a kind and generous supporter of her community. Patsy loved the simple things in life: being a wife and mother to her two sons, good homecooking, dressing up, family reunions, lunches with church friends, country music, and teasing her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was loved and cherished by them all and will be deeply missed.
