Martha Gail Hendrix Proctor

Ms. Martha Gail Hendrix Proctor, 74, of Eatons Church Road, Mocksville, died Tuesday, Aug. 10, 2021 at SECU Hospice Care Center of Yadkin.

She was born on Aug. 26, 1946 in Rowan County to the late Thomas Spencer and Nellie Irene Hendrix.

She loved spending time with Clarence and they were collectors of antiques. She loved going to flea markets where they could trade and sell items and find new treasures. Loved by many, she made an impression wherever her path took her. Her giggly laughter was unmistakable, and it could fill a room with happiness. She was a female business owner for years, opening a ceramic shop that was popular for crafters all over Davie County. She worked alongside her sister and brother-in-law for many years and there are hundreds of ceramic Christmas trees in Davie because of “MAD Ceramics”. They were honored to design and make the 100th Anniversary Commemorative Plate for the Masonic Picnic held each year in Mocksville. She retired from Harris Teeter in Clemmons where she made many friends, co-workers and customers. Above all, she was a family person. She was particularly close to her sisters, and they loved to go shopping, always looking for a bargain. And while she had no children, she treated all her nieces and nephews like they were her own.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by: a sister, Sara Campbell; a brother, Johnny Hendrix; and a brother-in-law, Don Beaver.

Survivors: her friend and companion, Clarence Driver of Mocksville; siblings, Tommy Hendrix (Vicki) of Mooresville, Jerry Hendrix (Paulette) of Mocksville, Robert Hendrix (Kae) of Mocksville,  Nancy Beaver of Mocksville, and Linda Groce (Dallas) of Yadkinville; and numerous special nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be conducted at 2 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 22 at Eaton Funeral Chapel with Dr. David Gilbreath, Paula Hensley and the Rev. Jimmy Lancaster officiating. The family received friends following the service at the home of her niece, Angie Jordan, 372 Wilkesboro St., Mocksville.
