Patricia Brooks (Chenault) Martin, 76, was born on March 5, 1941 in Portales, New Mexico and was called to Heaven on Monday, January 8, 2018 at her home in Webbers Falls, OK.
Tricia was born the oldest daughter of Alton and Mabelle Chenault who were dairy farmers and taught her what a good farm girl should be. She was a graduate of Muskogee High School. She met and married the love of her life Belvie Martin on December 24, 1959. They were blessed with twin boys, Dale & Dean Martin. Pat was the consummate wife and mother and when her boys started school, she began working at First National Bank and later earned her real estate license and was a successful Avon representative. She began working for the district court in Tahlequah, working for Judge Mark Dobbins until her retirement in 2002.
Honesty, integrity and dependability were traits she and Belvie shared. When the weather turned, Belvie would drive her to work and pick her up each evening. For any who knew her, Pat was a lady of utmost class and character and she worked to instill the importance of family. First her children, then grandchildren and of late, her great grandchildren.
Pat and Belvie were active in Chandler Road Church of Christ and were avid supporters of FFA, OHP and every activity their family took part in.
Pat, her sister Lenora and their mother Mabelle taught the generations how to cook, sew, garden, can and above all, to love and support one another.
