It is with sadness we said our earthly goodbyes on March 22, 2020.

Due to the COVID-19 virus we will be having a family memorial at a later date.
She will be buried at Elmwood Memorial Park in Abilene, TX.

She was born Martha Lou Stephens on September 22, 1938 in Quitaque, TX to Elmer Stephens and Alma Strange Stephens.

First and foremost she was a strong and faithful christian and life long member of 16th and Vine Church of Christ and Southern Hills Church of Christ. She was such a JEWEL!! Sassy, funny, smart, kind, a great artist and we cannot forget stylish! She will be missed greatly by her large family circle.

She is preceded in death by her parents Elmer and Alma Stephens, her husband Billy Ray McGhee, brothers Wayne Stephens and Don Stephens and his wife Deann, her sisters Pauline Platt and husband Ernest, Wilma Woodson and husband Hoot, Lola Lowe and husband Garland, brother in law Butch DeBusk and her dear grandson Jaeden Livingston.

She is survived by her 3 children Billy Wayne McGhee and wife Cheryl, Jennifer McGhee and Lori Jackson and her husband Wallace all of Abilene, TX.
Two sisters Barbara DeBusk of Longview, Shirley Attaway and husband Allen of Abernathy and one sister in law Beverly Stephens of Denton.
Five grandchildren Justin Benson, Chance Benson, Weston McGhee, Wendy Held and Anthony Livingston. 5 great grandchildren Gatlin Benson, Gracy Benson, Gunner Benson, Emma Held and Kinsey Held. She is also survived by many, many cousins, nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank the many caregivers and friends at both Brightpointe Nursing Home and Hendrick Hospice. In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to Hendrick Hospice of Abilene.

My name is Deborah Ellington. I was a caregiver at Beight Pointe and remember Martha well. She and my client shared the same table for meals. I could get Martha to laugh and laugh with all of my kidding. What a joy to see her enjoying herself. My daughter Robin also visited with Martha. We both loved her so much. I always called her Ma. Classy and she liked that. She will hold a special part of my heart. I am so sorry for your lose. She was a kind kind person. Blessing to the family.

Martha was a special person in our Bible class at Southern Hills. We have missed her while she has been at Britepoint. May God help you find peace and bring you comfort knowing Martha is now at home with Him in heaven. May the memories that mean the most to you live forever in your heart. Love Madge Davidson

Please accept my condolences on the loss of Martha McGhee. She was a lively member of our faith community for many years. My family always use herfirst and last name when speaking of her, because my wife was also Martha. A large part fo my family became well acquainted with her as served served as companion and caregiver to my mother in her last months. Matha was one of Mom's favorite companion/caregivers. She was always cheerful and knew how to cheer Mom. My siblings and Mom's grandkids join in sending condolences. The world is a better place because Martha passed through it. She was always a blessing.
