Obituary for Joyce Martin

Long time McMinnville resident, Joyce Martin, passed away on August 27 surrounded by her loving family and friends.

Joyce was born in Portland, Oregon on August 28, 1930 to Letha and Andrew Wakeman. She spent her childhood mainly in Portland and Seaside, Oregon.

At the age of 14 while spending the summer in Seaside, she met Wendell Martin from McCoy, Oregon. Joyce and Wendell married on August 18, 1950. They farmed in the McCoy and McMinnville areas, moving from McCoy to McMinnville in 1962.

Joyce was a loving and compassionate person who enjoyed her family, her many friends, and her job as a bookkeeper at McMinnville High School, and her community involvement through church, Soroptimist, SMART Reader and Hospice Volunteer. Being a mother was a great joy for Joyce and she was deeply loved by her children. Joyce maintained a loving, positive disposition even as her Alzheimer Disease progressed, which endeared her to the many who provided her with care.

She is survived by her husband and her children, Linda Dollar (Bill), Diane Burt (Michael), Tom Martin (Rachel) and Gary Martin (Julie). She is also survived by eight grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. Joyce was preceded in death by her parents, her sisters Virginia Bishop and Lydia Hedgecock and brothers Bruce and Paul.

A Celebration of Life to honor the life of Joyce Martin will take place at 2:00 on Wednesday, August 30 at The First Baptist Church, 125 SE Cowls St, McMinnville, Oregon.

In lieu of flowers please send a donation to Yamhill Valley Heritage Museum in care of Macy and Son Funeral Directors.
