Eddie (Edgar) Leroy Langford, Jr


 

 

Eddie (Edgar) Leroy Langford, Jr., passed away suddenly on March 12, 2019.  Eddie was born on March 15, 1961, in Houston, Texas to Ed (Edgar) and Oleta Langford. He was a member of the 1979 graduating class of Conroe High School.


In 1980 he married Lori Holt and they had one son, Beau (Roland) Langford.  In 2003 he married Mitzi McClure.  Eddie is preceded in death by his parents, Ed and Oleta and by his sister, Anita.  He is survived by his wife Mitzi Langford; his son, Beau and wife Amie Langford; granddaughters, Hailey and Lexi Langford; sister Mary and husband Vernon Embry, sister Dianne and husband Joe Fuller; sister Janice Langford; brother Ernie and wife Paula Langford; sister Edith Langford and husband Chris; and many nieces and nephews.


After graduating high school, Eddie continued to work with his dad in construction work.  He later started his own business, Langford Construction, where he continued to work until his illness prevented him from doing so.  That did not stop him from teaching others.  He was always willing to explain to you how “to do” the work.  He was always helping someone start or complete a project.  He was his family “go to person” for all their needs.  If he did not know how to do it, he would go to you tube to see how to repair it. 

 
Eddie loved to hunt, fish, to spend time with his son and granddaughters, and explore his surroundings.   With the growth of Montgomery County he would say there was always a new road to explore.


Eddie will be greatly missed by his family.  He will be laid to rest on March 19, 2019, at the family cemetery in Shelbyville, Texas.

Dorothy Keel Miller


 

 

 

 

 

Funeral Services for Dorothy Keel Miller, age 94, of San Augustine, will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday, February 27, 2019, in the Wyman Roberts Memorial Chapel with Bro. Frank Holrath officiating.  Burial will follow in the Macune Cemetery in San Augustine County.  Visitation will be held Tuesday from the hours of 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Wyman Roberts.

 

Dorothy was born to the late Addie (Toole) Keel and Fred Keel on December 7, 1924, in Troup, Texas, and passed from this life on Sunday, February 24, 2019, in San Augustine.   Ms. Dorothy Mae Keel married the love of her life, Mike Miller on April 15, 1950.  She worked as a PBX operator while living in Grand Prairie for some 23 years, God blessed Dorothy and Mike with a baby boy named Marlon in 1952, and a baby girl named Dwana in 1956. 

 

While there in Grand Prairie, she worked in the first grade Sunday School department,  Ladies Visitation and various other ministries of the Calvary Baptist Church where the family were members from 1953 until moving to San Augustine in 1970.  In San Augustine she had the privilege of teaching teenage ladies Christian ethics, and years later they came to her expressing what they had learned, she always made it fun and tried to make it a learning process for them. 

In 1970, they moved to San Augustine, and later Mrs. Casey Jones asked her to go with her to an art class in Zavalla in which God blessed her with wonderful talent.  She began teaching others, she had up to 7 classes a week plus going to Houston to pick up supplies periodically.  She taught for 30 years, she considered it a joy to help others, and made many art shows and sold many paintings.  She along with her late husband were always in a wonderful church each place they lived.

 

One of her first loves was fishing, and often fished along with her beloved friend, Doyline Bennefield at least 3 times weekly at Jackson Hill Marina on Sam Rayburn Lake.  They caught their limit almost every time they went.  They would catch big crappie, and big ope catfish, always rising early at 4 a.m. She recalled  "one morning, it had rained and the water was coming over the pier, we bailed off in the water waist deep, with coolers of fish, ice chest, poles,  but made it to back to the bank."  Later she started fishing with her son Marlon, she thoroughly enjoyed recalling memories of how he drew a line across the boat, and would not let her fish on his end of the boat, but she remarked, "I did well on my half of the boat, getting her limit most of the time."

 

Every summer she set aside time for her grandsons Jason and Michael to come and visit. She took them fishing, swimming and made the visits so much fun with chocolate chip cookies and her wonderful famous fried pies.  A special joy of her life was visits with her great grand children Kade and Shayleigh McGowen.  She was excited recently to know that another great grand child Royce Ty McGowen is due to arrive in April.

 

Those left to cherish her memory include her son, Marlon Miller of San Augustine; daughter, Dwana McGowen of Grand Prairie; her beloved grandchildren, Jason and his wife,  Libby McGowen of Grand Prairie; Mike and his wife,  Kelli McGowen of Lubbock; Great-grandchildren, Kade and Shayleigh McGowen of Lubbock, along with a host of nieces and nephews. 

 

She is preceded in death by her beloved husband, Mitchell Porter Miller; her son-in-law, David McGowen; her daughter-in-law, Sheila Miller; her parents, Fred and Addie Keel; and siblings, Jay Keel; Sam Keel; Warren Keel; LaNell Whitesides; Mozell Whitesides; Maxine Hunter and Eve Colvins.

 

Serving as pallbearers will include, Jason McGowen; Mike McGowen; Kade McGowen; Michael Voytek; Roy Williams and Chris Hamilton and Barry Welch.
