Evelyn Martin, age 93 years, of Jefferson City, Mo., passed away Monday, November 25, 2019 at Jefferson City Manor surrounded by family.

Evelyn was born January 29, 1926, the daughter of Thomas Joseph and Nellie Mae (Black) Huegel. She was married to Gay Martin on October 6, 1945, who preceded her in death on October 27, 2007.

A lifelong resident of Cole County, Evelyn attended Park School, Simonsen Junior High and Centertown High School. She also attended the Baptist Church in Centertown, Mo. when she was younger.

Evelyn was co-owner with her husband of Colcomo Service Station on Dunklin Street in Jefferson City for over 37 years until their retirement in 1980. During those years she took care of the books for the business. She also worked for nine years at Scholastic Magazines in the cashier department after her children were grown.

Evelyn considered herself a homemaker for the majority of her life and took great pride in caring for her family. She was the best cook and cherished family gatherings. She and Gay square danced for over 30 years and were members of the Capitol Squares and Circle Bob’s Clubs. They also frequented the American Legion to dance most weekends and were blessed to travel frequently in their retirement. She enjoyed playing cards, bingo, dominoes, bowling and jigsaw puzzles with her children and grandchildren. In her free time, Evelyn worked on researching genealogy and met relatives through her research.

Survivors include: three daughters, Linda Duenkel (Dave) of O’Fallon, Mo., Marcia Glenn (Glenn Bardgett) of O’Fallon, Mo. and Terri Helming (Dave) of Jefferson City, Mo.; one sister, Vivian Stewart Axelson of Bakersfield, Ca.; five grandchildren, Nicole Duenkel Curtis (Scott) of O’Fallon, Mo., Jason Glenn (Anna Miller) of O’Fallon, Mo., Brian Glenn (Denise) of O’Fallon, Mo., Kelli Helming Heisler (Tyler) of Jefferson City, Mo. and Nick Helming (Gianna) of Lee's Summit, Mo.; eleven great-grandchildren, David Clouse, Chris Clouse, Josh Clouse, Kaitlin Curtis, Braden Curtis, Owen Curtis, Reagan Glenn, Brandon Glenn, Allison Glenn, Hailey Heisler and Gia Helming; and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her loving husband of 62 years, Gay; one brother, Thomas Huegel; and her husband’s parents and siblings.

Visitation will be held at Freeman Mortuary from 12:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. Friday, November 29, 2019.
