Velva Jean had lived most of her life in the Dayton area. She loved all her children and grandchildren, she helped each one at any time. She could always be depended on for advice, food or a place to stay. She loved to cook, tell stories about her kids growing up, life on the farm with her late husband who worked the farm and how they raised the kids together. She loved her chickens, puppies, sitting on the porch with family, and quilting. Jean always put others before herself, loved everyone around her and nothing made her happier than to be with family and the kids.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Alvin B. “Shorty” Martin; son, Alvin Clifford Martin; baby son, Jesse Martin; brothers, Elvin Brown and Clayton Brown.
