Hettie Joyce was born October 26, 1934 in Quail, Texas to Haskell and Mary Anne (Winkler) Baggett. She was raised in the Wellington/Quail area and was a certified nursing assistant until her retirement in 1996. Ms. Martin's proudest accomplishment was successfully raising six children.

Ms. Martin had a fine collection of dolls and bird houses, and was inseparable from her precious canine companion of 20 years, Mattie. As family was very important to Ms. Martin, she admired her parents and considered her sisters her best friends.

Ms. Martin frequently attended their sporting events, looked forward to family cookouts and fish fries, and especially adored the Christmas Holiday.
