Martha was born and raised in Okemah, Oklahoma and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology with minors in Religion and Music from Oklahoma Baptist University. She moved to the Texas Panhandle in 1987 with her husband when he began work in the cattle industry here. After her husband died and she retired as the Director of the Deaf Smith County Library in Hereford, TX, Martha moved to Amarillo to be part of St. Andrew’s. She is blessed with two sons, a daughter-in-law, and three grandsons, all of whom live way too far away!
Martha’s main duties as Parish Secretary include preparing the pew bulletins for Sunday and other worship services of the parish. She also maintains prayer lists, greets visitors, answers the phone, and performs “other duties as assigned” in the office.
