Glenda Sue Overstreet Martin, 81, of Round Rock, died at home with family by her side. Glenda was born in Austin, Texas on June 18, 1940.
Graveside services will be held on Monday July 19th at 11 a.m. at Mt. Zion Cemetery between Bertram, TX and Oatmeal, TX on County Road 330A.
Glenda graduated from Travis High School in Austin. She raised her five children and granddaughter, and she was a wonderful and adoring grandmother to all four of her grandchildren. Glenda retired after working at Southwestern Bell Telephone Company and AT&T for 30 years. Her career started as a telephone operator and she was proud to be one of the first women to work as an electronic switching equipment technician, which was then a male-dominated position in the company. In retirement, Glenda enjoyed genealogy, traveling with family and friends, oil painting, and making quilts and professional quality porcelain dolls.
Glenda was preceded in death by her husband of 26 years, Bobby James Martin, sons Robert Dale Edwards and Hunter Frank Bolt, parents Oscar and Ethel Overstreet, and sisters LaNelle Glass, and Ruby Evelyn and Theresa Ann Overstreet.
Glenda is survived by her daughters Lori Ann Henry and Glenda Jo Locke, son Martin (Trey) Bolt III, and grandchildren Hunter Scott Henry, Rebecca Brooke Bolt, Garrett Allan Locke, and Asa James Brown, and her constant companion dog, Sweetie.
Her family deeply appreciates Hospice Austin and Jenkins Funeral Home for their thoughtful and compassionate care. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to some of Glenda’s favorite charities including the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Meals on Wheels, Smile Train, or a local food bank.
