Pamela M. Phelps


 

Pamela M. Phelps, 61, of Center, passed away peacefully Thursday, June 8, 2017, at her home surrounded by her family. 
 
Pam was born and raised in Galveston County, to father Harvey Gene Sutton and mother Mary Jane Richards Sutton. As the eldest sibling and only daughter, Pam embraced being a leader and caretaker; traits that she exuded throughout her life. 
 
In 1975, Pam wed Jerry R. Phelps with whom she shared 40 years of marriage. Shortly after they wed, Pam and Jerry moved to Center, Texas where they raised their two children, Valerie Ogle and Nathan Phelps, and created a circle of close friends that quickly became their extended family. Her Texas pride and love of people directed her to obtain her license with Town & Country Real Estate. During her 38 years in Center, Pam was an active community member and a dedicated steward of service. 
 
She was a member of First United Methodist Church where she acted as MYF leader for many years. She also joined Beta Sigma Phi sorority and served in multiple leadership positions. Her proudest appointment was serving as the Executive Director of the Shelby County Chamber of Commerce. A position she held for 19 years. 
 
Pam maintained a love for the Texas Coast and Galveston. Her family’s annual summer trip to Bolivar was also an open invitation to anyone who happened to be down on the coast. And Pam, an effortless hostess, was always at the ready to greet you with something delicious. 
 
She is lovingly remembered as a woman who treasured friendships, remembered all the details of a shared conversation, and believed you should rejoice in all of life’s moments, big and small.
 
The funeral service for Pamela M. Phelps will be held at 4:00 p.m., Monday, June 12, 2017, at First United Methodist Church in Center.  The family will receive friends in the Fellowship Hall immediately proceeding the service. Then Tuesday, June 13, 2017, a visitation will be held at Crowder Funeral Home in Dickinson, Texas at 2:00 p.m. Graveside service will follow at 4:00 p.m. at Galveston Memorial Park Cemetery in Hitchcock.

Ruby Warr Smith


 

Ruby Warr Smith, 83, of the Sardis Community, passed away  in Center on Wednesday, May 31, 2017 after a lengthy illness. The family will receive friends from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. Saturday, June 3, at Mangum Funeral Home Chapel; funeral services will begin at 12 p.m. Burial will follow in Old Salem Cemetery in Shelby County, her family’s burial ground. Her cousin Bobby Warr will officiate and her grandson Rodger Glen McLane will read the obituary.
 
Ruby Essie Warr was born in rural Shelby County on April 29, 1934, the fifth of twelve children born to Ernest Green Warr and Lid Luman. Her siblings were Noah Velt, Florine ‘Crickett’, Homer, E.C., Bobby, L.C, Freddie, Billy, Shirley, Betty, and Mary Warr. Ruby spent much of her youth in West Texas, where her family moved to work during the Great Depression. With her own family, Ruby moved her children back to Shelby County where she made her lifelong home. A well-known citizen of Shelby County, Ruby owned her own restaurant in Tenaha in the late ‘50s and worked for years as a waitress in local diners. Ruby married Ray Smith and lived on their farm in Sardis before her health declined and she became a resident of Holiday Nursing Home. Ruby was raised in the Baptist Faith, but at the time of her death she was a member of the Sardis Pentecostal Church. Ruby’s family will remember her as a loving and elegant lady.  Ruby is preceded in death by her parents, brothers, and sisters, Crickett Vandergriff and Shirley Nethery.
 
Survivors include her husband, Ray Smith, of the Sardis Community; her son and his family, Rodger Dale McLane (Brenda), of Deadwood; her grandchildren, Brandi Kelley  (Shane), of Carthage, Lacie Fensom, of Deadwood, and Rodger Glen McLane, of Jackson, Miss.; her great-grandchildren Alyssa, Brenton, and Courtlyn Fensom, all of Deadwood. Also surviving Ruby is her daughter and her family, Pat Miller, of Reno, Nev., her grandchildren, Roger Miller, Jamal Miller, and Lawanna Miller, all of Reno, Nev., her great-grandchildren, Stacia Miller, Staceyana Miller, Rajania Miller, Roger Miller Jr., Janea Miller, Jamal Miller, John Raymond Miller, and Dijonte Huey, and one great-great-grandchild, Yanni Green, all of Reno, Nev. Other survivors include her sisters, Mary Scates and her husband Bubba, of Center, and Betty Prior and her husband Travis, of Longview. Ruby is also survived by many nieces, nephews, and countless cousins throughout Shelby County, whom she loved dearly.
