Patty Ann Martin

Patty Ann Richmond Martin, age 79, of Glen Morgan, WV, went to be with the Lord on June 21, 2018.

She was born at Blue Jay, WV, to the late Wayne O. Richmond and Pauline Hart Richmond on January 17, 1939.

Those left to cherish her memory include her husband of 58 years, Carlos Jennings Martin, Jr., her beloved son, Gregory Martin & Andrea of Glen Morgan, brothers, Wayne Richmond and Roger Richmond, sisters, Janet Mann, Diana Barnett, and Karen Hatcher, and her granddaughter, Katie Martin.

Patty was preceded in death by her parents, sister, Barbara Clower, and brothers, Gary and Tim Richmond.

After graduating from Shady Spring High School, Patty worked at King Foto in Beckley, Gates Supply and Engineering, Beckley Newspaper, and for Dr. James Barnes at Beckley Medical Arts until his retirement at which time Patty retired too.

Patty was always smiling and laughing and brought joy to anyone around her. She never knew a stranger. She loved watching old movies and old westerns, raising flowers and working in her garden. Her smiles and laughter will be missed by everyone who knew her. The highlight of her life was her son, as anyone who knew her was aware.

The family wishes to thank many special friends, Anna, Joe, Tom & Hazel, Melba, Keith & Renee, and others for all the kindness they showed during this time. They would also like to express thanks to nurses and staff at Raleigh General Hospital, Raleigh Center, and Harper Mills.

She attended Clifftop Missionary Baptist Church on Airport Road in Beaver.
