Celebration of Life Set For Tiffany Jai Martin

Tiffany Jai Martin

Tiffany Jai Martin took her final walk into the woods, surrounded by family, on December 30, 2022. She was 50.

Tiffany is survived by her husband,  Joel Martin of Sitka; daughter Kasiana (Pittser) Brewer, Sitka; stepdaughters Lily Martin of Sitka and Zuri Martin,  of Wilmington, North Carolina; granddaughter Dakota Lynn, Sitka; mother and stepfather,  Vicki and Tom Johnson  of Rochester, Washington; sister Rocki Oldfield of Tenino, Washington; and stepbrothers Jarrod and Jordan Johnson of Arkansas.

Many nieces and nephews also survive.

She was preceded in death by her father, Jim Davenport.

Tiffany was born on April 7, 1972, to Vicki (Talley) Johnson and Jim Davenport in Aberdeen, Washington.

In 1975 the family moved to Sitka, which remained her heart and homeland until her passing.

She attended Sitka schools, graduating from Sitka High School in 1990.

Tiffany had a grand love and respect for the outdoors here in Alaska. She would spend her free time hiking, exploring on the boat, camping, riding four-wheelers, and beach combing as often as she could. She also enjoyed sharing these joys with her children and grandchildren.

“Teaching us, as she would put it, ‘how it’s done right,’” her family said.

She worked for Sitka Sound Seafoods, Seafood Producers Co-op, Sitka Community Hospital, and Shaffers Construction, ending her career in the City of Sitka Electric Department, before she retired due to her illness.

Tiffany will be buried in the family plot in Brooklyn, Washington, on May 13, 2023.

A celebration of her life is planned in Sitka at 1 p.m. on April 22, at the Halibut Point Recreation Area, main shelter. Those attending are welcome to take a dish to share.

Donations are requested to be made to the Sitka Cancer Survivor’s Society at P.O. Box 1624, Sitka AK 99835.
