Dee and Audra Martin, 70th Anniversary
In 1951, they moved to Plainview, Texas, where they farmed with Dee’s dad, John Martin. In 1973, Dee retired to spend time with children and grandchildren.
During his cancer, Dee became Chairman of the Federal Land Bank Board, Producers Grain, Abilene Christian University advisory board, chairman of Church Loans and Investment Trust and several others.
Through life, Dee and Audra have worked as a team and always had a Bible study going in their home, leading many to baptism. They have enjoyed traveling to several foreign countries, both for pleasure and missions.
Dee was an elder of the Church of Christ in Plainview for 44 years. In 2006 came their move to Plano, Texas, to be near all their family. They attend Prestoncrest Church of Christ in Dallas.
Their family includes daughter Lana (Jeff) Clevenger and son, Joe Don (Janet) Martin; four grandchildren: Don (Jolie) Clevenger, Dave (Jolyn) Clevenger, Jacob (Christal) Martin, and Jennie Martin; and five great-grandchildren: William, Luke, and Joshua Clevenger and Audrey and Caleb Clevenger. All are faithful members of the Church of Christ.
Seventy years — what a milestone and influence on their family and friends!
