Left to cherish her memory, her son Ricky Martin, brother Charlie (Wanda) Workman, sister Almeda Potts, brother-in-law Larry Potts, grandchildren Jonathan Martin, Ashley Edwards, Candice Riggs, Allison Martin, and Kristen Riggs, great grandchildren Abigail Mason, Jaylan Martin, Cheyenne Thompson, Raelyn Edwards, and Zaniya Riggs, and a host of nieces, nephews, and other relatives and friends who will miss her dearly.
