Born June 1, 1918 into a family of eight children, she is survived by one sister, Bobbie Peacock of Avery, Texas, two daughters Sharon Smith of Bryan, Texas, and Linda Thurmond of Tahoka, Texas, three grandchildren, three great grandchildren, and two great-great grandchildren.
Living 100 years, she has seen WWI, WWII, and the Great Depression. She has seen the invention of electricity into common households, modern air conditioning and heat, television, home phones, cell phones, and computers. She saw the first man on the moon. A whole century of change.
We now lay her to rest at Trinity Memorial Park in Big Springs, Texas alongside her husband, Carlton on Monday, September 24, 2018 at 2:00 pm with graveside services. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to Encompass Hospice or Aggieland Humane Society. A special thank you to Encompass Hospice and to the staff at Park Place Assisted Living.
