Bobbie Jo Turk


Bobbie Jo Turk went to be the Lord December 4, 2017, at the age of 72.
 
Visitation will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Wednesday, December 6, 2017, at Watson & Sons Funeral Home in Center.  Funeral service will be held at 10:00 a.m., Thursday, December 7, 2017, at Watson & Sons Chapel with Rev. Karen Jones officiating.  Interment will follow at Hillcrest Cemetery in Hillsboro, Texas.  
 
Bobbie Jo Turk went to be the Lord December 4, 2017, at the age of 72.  Born June 24, 1945 in Clinton, Oklahoma to Rev. Robert E. Harrison and Trula Faye Ward Harrison, she grew up in several rural towns in southern Oklahoma and western Texas.
 
Bobbie graduated from McMurry College, where she met the love of her life when a boy from Jal, New Mexico offered to give her a ride home to Kermit, Texas.  After marriage, she spent the majority of her adult life in Benbrook, Texas.  She retired from the Fort Worth ISD after 30 years in the classroom as a bilingual ESL teacher in the primary grades.  She loved to teach and cherished the memories of her students.
 
For many years Bobbie and her husband split their time between homes in Texas and New Mexico.  She was a student of southwest culture and loved to study the heritage and history of the region.
 
Bobbie moved to Center, Texas in 2006 to embrace her most cherished life role, that of “Grammy”.  She loved to spend time with her family and especially enjoyed being close to her grandchildren.  We know that she will continue to watch with pride at their accomplishments.
 
Bobbie knew her Lord and Savior well and while her illness was sudden and short, insisted that there be no tears.  
 
While we all prepare to celebrate the birth of our Savior, she has held a nail-scarred hand.  She is a lifelong member of the United Methodist Church, serving for nearly 30 years at Benbrook UMC and finally at First UMC of Center.
 
She is survived by:
Husband of 50 years, Ed Turk of Center
Son, Doug and wife, Angie, of Shelbyville
Grandchildren, Maggie and Eddie of Shelbyville
Brother and sister-in-law, Dr. David and Dr. Kelly Harrison of Blacksburg, Virginia
Sister-in-law, Wanda Lou Cook of San Angelo, Texas
Nephews, Nathan Harrison (Stephanie) and K.C. Harrison, both of Blacksburg, Virginia; John David Cook of San Angelo, Texas
Niece, Prissy McCollum (Steve) of San Angelo, Texas
Great niece, Lauren McCollum of San Antonio, Texas
Cousin, Matt Knox
 
Preceded in death by
Parents: Rev. Robert Edward Harrison and Trula Fay Ward Harrison
Favorite Aunt: Geri Knox
 
Pallbearers will be Steve Waters, Carlos Gray, Larry Warren, Kenneth Hardy, Nathan Harrison and K C Harrison.
 
We offer a special thanks to the staff of Affinity Hospice of Center, Pine Grove Nursing Center and Christus Trinity Mother Francis Hospital of Tyler.
 
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Benbrook United Methodist Church or First United Methodist Church of Center.

Don Mac Shrum


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Don Mac Shrum, 81, of Joaquin passed away on Thursday, November 23, 2017 in Joaquin.  He was born on July 20, 1936, in Rains County, Texas, the son of Loyd Eugene (Gene) and Rozella (Buchanan) Shrum.  Graveside service will be held on Monday, November 27, 2017 at Blair Cemetery with Bro. Gordon Vaughn officiating.  Visitation will be held on Monday, November 27, 2017 from 10:00am – 12:00pm at Taylor Funeral Home.
 
Don was born and raised in Rains County, Texas.  He graduated from Brazosport High School and soon after, joined the U.S. Army, where he honorably served his country.  Don met a very special lady, Joyce Mullins, and the two soon realized the love they had for each other.  In May of 1961, she graduated from high school, and on June 9, 1961, the two were joined in marriage.  This began their love story which lasted until her passing.  Don held many jobs during his lifetime, but always made sure he provided for the family that he and Joyce had.  He loved his children and his grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the light of his life.  He spent many hours loving on them and watching them grow up.  He also enjoyed fishing and reading, but his favorite memories were when he and his lovely wife were travelling.  Their most memorable trip, and favorite places to visit was Branson, Missouri and the state of Tennessee.  Don loved life and his family.  His legacy of love and hard work will forever live on in the hearts and minds of those who knew and loved him.
 
Don is survived by his daughters, Sherry Hass and husband, Rex of Joaquin, Texas, Vickie Williams and husband, Roger of Lufkin, Texas; brothers, Loyd Shrum and wife Sybil of Mena, Arkansas and Perry Shrum and wife, Leslie of Angleton, Texas; sisters, Linda Piwonka of Clute, Texas, Raynell Presley of Dallas, Texas, and Laverne Chandler and husband, James of Colfax, Louisiana; 6 grandchildren; and 16 great-grandchildren.
 
He is preceded in death by his wife, Joyce Mullins Shrum and his parents, Loyd Eugene Shrum and Rozella Buchanan Shrum.
 
The Shrum family is being served by Taylor Funeral Home.

Euriel Gloria Real


 

Euriel Gloria Real, 92, of Timpson, formerly of Vidor, passed away Friday, November 17, 2017, at her residence.
 
Visitation will be held from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., Sunday, November 19, 2017, at Watson & Sons Funeral Home in Center.  Funeral service will be held at 10:00 a.m., Monday, November 20, 2017, at Watson & Sons Chapel with Bro. Andy Wilson and Bro. Billy Stanley officiating. Graveside service will follow at 3:30 p.m. at Restlawn Memorial Park in Vidor.
 
Sister Real was born April 13, 1925, in New Orleans, Louisiana, to Herman Peter Francis and Euriel Pauline Urrey Francis.  She was a well-known and loved figure in the Timpson community for over thirty years, keeping to the Bible as well as her late husband’s, Pastor J.G. Real, edicts of “you got to love them” when it came to not only your neighbor but people in general.  Also, always be thankful to God for the good and the bad.  Her faith has moved mountains and has been a literal example of how to pray without ceasing.  Much more than a Godly woman and mother, she was an encouraging matriarch to any she came across or met.  Her hobbies included attending any church activity, going on scenic drives, working puzzles and playing and singing church music. She was a member of Center First United Pentecostal Church.
 
She is survived by
Daughters: 
Colleen Johnson of Timpson
Eilleen Randall of Timpson
 
Grandchildren:
Samuel Johnson of Timpson
Sarah Windham and husband, Michael, of Timpson

Johnathon Edward Martin Jr.


 
Johnathon Edward Martin, Jr., 30, of Timpson, Texas, passed away on November 10, 2017. He was born on February 16, 1987 in Houston, Texas to John Edward Martin and Sonja Gail (Collins) Rolfes.  Funeral Service will be held at 1PM on Thursday, November 16, 2017 at Taylor Funeral Home in Timpson, Texas.  Visitation will be held prior to the service beginning at 11AM at Taylor Funeral Home.  A private family interment will be held. 
 
Johnathon moved to Timpson at an early age.  He graduated from Timpson High School as a member of the Class of 2005.  He met the love of his life, Samantha Abbate Martin, in November 2013.  Three short months later, he asked her if she would move to Nacogdoches.  The two have remained faithfully by one another’s side, building their dreams as a family. Their first-born child, Makynlie Claire was born March 2015.  She had her Daddy wrapped around her finger and brought such joy to their lives. She was a true “Daddy’s girl.” In October 2017, the family of three welcomed another blessing, Kamden Cole Martin, a sweet, beautiful boy who Jonathon loved beyond words. 
 
Johnathon was a very hard working young man. He worked two jobs, one of which was a company started by him and his father, John, in November 2015.  Martin & Martin Trucking was a vision Jonathan had that he had hoped would one day be the sole provision for him and his entire family. It was his dream to build the company from the ground up into a full functioning corporation. 
 
While Jonathan was a focused and determined young man, he also took time to breathe and enjoy life. He loved the outdoors and could often be found fishing, hunting, knee-boarding, spending time at the lake and playing football. Above all, the greatest treasures of his life were his children. Jonathan’s favorite moments were those spent holding his baby girl and his newborn son. There is a bond between them that will never be broken. 
 
Johnathon is survived by his loving wife, Samantha Abbate Martin; babies, Kamden Cole Martin, Makynlie Claire Martin; father, John Edward Martin and wife Terri; mother, Sonja Gail Rolfes; brother, Joshua Lloyd Martin; sisters, Harley Martin, Emily Ann Rolfes, Heather Gray, Brittany Dupree, Kaela Hudman; mother in law, Tracie Abbate; grandmother, Diane Dukes; brother in laws, Caleb Abbate, Noah Abbate; aunt, Julie Wulf; uncle, Mike Wulf; cousin, Stevie Sanchez; and a host of family and friends that will miss him dearly.
 
He is preceded in death by his grandparents; Billie Ray Collins, Gertie Loyce Collins, Sharon McKinney, Howard Martin, and Ronnie Dukes.
 
Serving as pallbearers will be Josh Martin, Jason Dupree, Chase Taylor, Michael Masterson, Anthony Martin, Kaleb Amos, Joe Grabowski, and Trent Hairgrove.
Honorary pallbearers serving are Caleb Abbate and Noah Abbate. 
The family is being served by Taylor Funeral Home in Timpson, Texas.

Jerry Floyd


 

Jerry Floyd, 65, of Nacogdoches, passed away on Tuesday, October 31, 2017 in Nacogdoches.  Mr. Floyd was born on October 3, 1952, in Pineville, Louisiana, the son of C.E. “Swamp” Floyd and Jewell Bernice Hattaway Floyd. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
 
Jerry grew up in Center, Texas where he attended and graduated from Center High School. Soon after graduation, he joined the U.S. Air Force where he honorably served his country for 2 years.  Jerry returned home and after attending Stephen F. Austin State University for a period of time, he joined his parents in running the family business in Center, where he remained for almost 40 years.  Jerry loved his mom, dad, and siblings and was always around to help them.  He spent his time fishing, camping, and anything else he could find to occupy his time outdoors.  He was happiest when he was playing with his nieces and nephews.  Being Uncle Jerry was the highlight of his life, and could typically be found playing with them on the floor or in the yard camping in a make-shift tent.  The kids loved the time they spent with him.  Jerry made many friends through the years, and made sure to keep in touch with each of them, planning time to spend together as they reminisced and enjoyed the pleasures of life as often as possible. 
 
Jerry is survived by his wife, Sharron Floyd of Nacogdoches; sister, Sandra Cervi and husband, Allen of Houston; brothers, Kenneth Floyd and wife, Debbie of Nacogdoches, Randy Floyd of Ft. Worth, and Michael Floyd of Carthage.

Lilly Reynolds


 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Lillian “Lily” Alexandra Reynolds, 17, of Center, Texas, passed away on November 1, 2017 in Center. She was born on June 19, 2000 in Nacogdoches to Philip Taylor Reynolds and
Linda Joy Allen. Funeral Services for Lily will be at 2:00 PM on Sunday, November 5,
2017 at Mangum Funeral Home Chapel with Bro. Mike Brister, Bro. Lacey Andrews, and
Bro. Terry Goodnight officiating. Interment will follow at Pleasant Hill Cemetery. A
visitation will be held from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM on Saturday, November 4, 2017 at
Mangum Funeral Home Chapel.
 
Lily grew up in Center and attended Center ISD. She was proud to be a Roughrider and
was involved in numerous activities and organizations such as Theatre, Band, and
Spanish Club. She was also a Chaparral and manager for the CHS Cheerleaders.
Lily dreamed of becoming a Special Effects Makeup Artist and Cosmetologist. She
absolutely loved doing hair and makeup. Anyone that allowed her could get a full
makeover from the eyebrows to the make-up, to the hairstyle. More than beautifying
others, Lily was content knowing she made their day brighter and what a ray of sunshine
she was! Lily was small in stature, but her heart was tremendous. She had so much love
and compassion for people that it overflowed onto anyone who had the pleasure of
meeting her. Lily adored her family and friends which she dedicated most of her time to
each day. Tia Lily, as her numerous nieces and nephews would call her, treasured the fun
moments spent with all “her babies.” There was no deeper connection than what Lily
shared with her brothers and sisters. Although, as much as she loved each one, they all
had to take a back seat to her little brother Levi. Those two have a bond that could never
be broken.
 
Lily’s affection was not just for humans. This girl had a desire to help and save any and
every animal she encountered. Some might describe her as a collector and not just a
caregiver. You could be driving down the road and if Lily saw an abandoned or helpless
animal, you can rest assured tears would be streaming and the car would pull over. There
would be an extra passenger heading home with you, but that was Lily. No one had a
heart like hers.
 
Lily knew her way around the kitchen and was a pro at spicy Mexican cuisine. You might
be left with watery eyes and a runny nose, but you would be full and satisfied. Tacos
were her absolute favorite. She also liked to spend time with her family skiing and
snowboarding. She was a member of Lone Star Baptist Church.
 
Lily was full of life. The air was just easier to breathe with her lighthearted laughter and
love around. Her smile was infectious. The darkest day would immediately brighten at
the sight of Lily. Even when she was struggling, she would still manage to uplift others
instead of dwelling on her own cares. Her vibrant presence will forever be missed among
those who knew her.
 
Lily is survived by her father, Philip Taylor Reynolds; mother and step-father, Linda and
Enrique Rodriguez; brothers, Benton Randolph Reynolds and wife, Jessica, Enrique “Henry”
Rodriguez, Philip Taylor Reynolds, II and wife, Tobin, Ross Christian Reynolds and
fiancé, Kayla, Dillon McBride Reynolds and Samuel Levi Rodriguez; sisters, Zaira
Lorena Arcibar and husband, Juan, Emily Danielle Fausett and husband, Adam, Fernanda
Lilibeth Nutt and husband, Jerrod and Stephany Leonor Fitzgerald and husband, Nic;
paternal grandparents, George and Sally Reynolds; maternal grandmother, Lillian Allen;
nieces and nephews, Alexis Reynolds, Matthew Arcibar, Kayden Nutt, Conner Nutt,
Chloe Arcibar, Sophia Arcibar, Cassie Nutt, Audrie Rodriguez, Benjamin Arcibar,
Andrew Reynolds; and numerous other family and special friends.
 
She is preceded in death by her grandfather, Johnny Allen and cousins, Cory Bertrand
and Zane Allen.
 
Pallbearers will be Benton Reynolds, Enrique "Henry" Rodriguez, Taylor Reynolds, Ross
Reynolds, Dillon Reynolds, and Levi Rodriguez. Honorary pallbearers are Juan Arcibar,
Adam Fausett, Jerrod Nutt, and Nic Fitzgerald.

Jimmy John Grubbs


 
Jimmy John Grubbs, 43, of Center, Texas, passed away on Friday, October 20, 2017 in Center, Texas. He was born on February 22, 1974 in Corpus Christi, Texas to James E. Grubbs and Ann E. Ault Grubbs. Funeral services for Jimmy will be at 3:00 PM on Sunday, October 22, 2017 at Center First United Pentecostal Church with Pastor Andy Wilson officiating. Interment will follow at Sardis Cemetery. A visitation will be held from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM prior to service time on Sunday, October 22, 2017 at Center First United Pentecostal Church. 
 
Jimmy John was raised in Shelby County and attended Shelbyville ISD. He was one of the hardest working individuals around and was dedicated to his job at High Roller Wells. There he worked operating heavy equipment and also served as a mechanic. Jimmy John loved his job and took great pride in serving the company well. His co-workers were not just acquaintances, but were like members of his family. He loved and cared for each one of them. He worked six days a week, but it is guaranteed that on Sunday, you would find Jimmy John worshipping His Lord and Savior and in fellowship with his beloved church family at Center First United Pentecostal Church. He served his Heavenly Father and his church family in any way he could. Jimmy John was a simple man, but had the heart of a true man of God. Genuine and compassionate, Jimmy John was known for his sincere kindness and of course, the everlasting smile on his face. No matter the situation or the place, a shining smile would be what greeted you whenever you saw him. There was a peace in his smile that brought such joy to those who had the opportunity to experience it. Jimmy John very much enjoyed being surrounded by family, and his favorite pal was the family dog, Lil’ Pancho. He and Lil’ Pancho had an understanding and the two would enjoy one another’s company and conversation. He was a food connoisseur and definitely had a love for Dr. Pepper! His kind-heartedness and his earnest smile will be dearly missed among those who had the pleasure of knowing him. 
 
Jimmy John is survived by his son, Jonathon Grubbs of Martinsville; brother, Gary Grubbs and wife, Margaret of Buffalo, Texas; sister, Angela Bailey of Center; nephew, Treven Bailey and wife, Jill of Center and Brent Bailey of Center; great nephew, Trae Bailey of Center; great niece, Madison Bailey of Center; and former brother-in-law, Vernon Bailey of Center. 
 
He is preceded in death by his parents, James and Ann Grubbs. 
 
Pallbearers for Jimmy John’s service will be Treven Bailey, Brent Bailey, Larry McDonald, Steve Franks, Chad Chesser, and Charley Brittain.
 
Honorary Pallbearers are Travis Brittain, Tony Willoughby, Vernon Bailey, and Dustin Bailey.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be sent to an account set up at Farmers State Bank in Center, Texas for the benefit of Jimmy John Grubbs.

Danny Jackson Foster


 

Danny Jackson Foster, born February 25, 1957 in Columbiana, Alabama, knocked on the Pearly Gates of Heaven October 17, 2017.  St. Peter opened the door and asked why he was here so soon, to which Danny likely replied, “If you wanted to hear one of my jokes about you in person, a phone call would have worked just fine.”  
 
A fine Auburn man who lived his life by the Auburn Creed, Danny earned his Bachelor of Science in Business from Auburn University in 1980.  During his time at Auburn University, Danny played the tenor sax in the Auburn University Marching Band from 1975-1979.  Danny co-wrote the Shelby County High School fight song still played today.
 
Prior to working in the wood industry for 34 years, Danny held many unique jobs, including working as a meat cutter, vacuum salesman, Bible salesman, boll weevil counter, butter factory worker, tomato plant deliverer, grass cutter and longshoreman forklift driver as needed. Danny served as Vice President of Ihlo Sales and Import for 25 years.  Danny was a member of the Center Noon Lions Club and the First United Methodist Church of Center.
 
Danny was an excellent cook and loved to serve anyone his favorite dishes – BBQ Shrimp New Orleans style was a favorite specialty.  A jack of all trades and an avid historian, Danny had a story about any subject and loved to share his passion for living life to the fullest.
 
Danny leaves behind his wife of 36 years, Andi (Johnston), two children, Dr. Alison Slade (David) of Spanish Fort, Alabama, Matt Foster (Brittany) of Center, Texas, sister Melissa Denney (Tom) of Auburn, Alabama and brother Jeff Foster of Columbiana, Alabama, and two nephews, Trey Denney (Sara) of Minneapolis, Minnesota and Foster Denney of Auburn, Alabama. Big Daddy also leaves behind seven grand-children, whom he adored and cherished.  Big Daddy had special names for all his babies: Austin Miller (Otis), Andrew Miller (Rufus), Lola Slade (Caledonia), Cora Slade (Sadie), Colton Slade (Slick), Roman Foster (RoRo) and Ivy Foster (Gertrude).  Danny was preceded in death by his grandparents, Charles Eugene Bozeman, Ada Moore Bozeman, Charles Oliver Foster and Sadie Farr Foster, his parents, Lewis Mack Foster and Flora Mae Foster, and his grandson, Gabriel John Slade.
  
Danny had a heart of gold and his giving and loving nature did not end with his death.  Danny was an organ donor and was able to save and change the lives of many, which he would not brag about to anyone but we sure think it is an amazing, selfless act that he lives on in others.  
Danny was one of the most giving and amazing people to grace this world.  Anyone who met him loved him and his ability to share his humor, wit and wisdom with all he encountered.  
 
Services for Danny Foster will be held on Friday, October 20, 2017 at Noon, followed by a visitation at First United Methodist Church of Center, Texas.  Visitation will also be held on Monday, October 23, 2017 at Good Hope Methodist Church in Columbiana, Alabama from Noon until 2 p.m. with a graveside service immediately following at Williams Cemetery.
 
In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to any of the following:  Williams Cemetery Fund c/o of Good Hope Methodist Church, 2735 CR 61, Columbiana, Alabama, 35051; Alan R.
