As we often witness, tragedy can inspire people to create something special in the memory of a loved one. In the case of Randi Mahomes, mother of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, the recent loss of her mother Debbie Martin has given rise to a new initiative that will serve as a meaningful tribute to a life well-lived.
Randi has taken the initiative to set up a scholarship fund in her mother’s name, intending to raise $15,000. As of the time of writing, around $1,000 has been collected from about 15 donors. With Randi’s substantial social media presence, it is anticipated that the target will be achieved within a matter of days or weeks.

The scholarship is intended to be awarded to a deserving student and serves as a testament to Randi’s commitment to honoring her mother’s memory. Most of her followers have shown strong support for the initiative, expressing confidence that Debbie would be proud of her daughter’s efforts.
On the GoFundMe page created for the cause, a description of Debbie Martin’s life and her impact on the community is shared.
“Mrs. Martin passed away Wednesday, April 5th, 2023, in Troup. She was born August 19, 1950, in Overton to Raymond Bates and Jennie Jackson Bates,” the description read.
Born on August 19, 1950, Debbie was known for her dedication to her family, her work as a school secretary and registrar, and her involvement in the Troup Women’s Civic Organization.
Debbie and Randi shared a playful bond over football, with the two even placing a friendly bet on the Kansas City Chiefs making it to another Super Bowl. Debbie had to drink a Coors if they succeeded, which she did, much to Randi’s amusement.
The Chiefs not only made it to the Super Bowl, but they also secured the championship title following their game against the Philadelphia Eagles. This victory further highlights the special connection between Debbie, Randi, and the Chiefs.
Patrick Mahomes’ Mother: A touching tribute on social media
Randi also commemorated her mother’s life by sharing a heartfelt Instagram tribute after her passing. The post featured a montage of photos from their time together, accompanied by the poignant message, “I love you momma, I will see you again in Heaven.”
While Patrick Mahomes has not yet publicly addressed his grandmother’s passing, the scholarship fund established in her memory stands as a powerful testament to the love and respect her family holds for her. The initiative not only honors Debbie’s life but also provides a valuable opportunity for a student to further their education in her name.
