Norvell grew up in Center and was known by everyone around as “Peewee.” She had to leave school in the eighth grade because her family needed her at home. Norvell helped to take care of her eight siblings each day, cooking, cleaning, and tending to their needs. From a young age, she learned what it meant to be selfless and caring, and those traits stayed with her throughout her life. She had a true servant’s heart and never thought twice about extending a helping hand wherever it was needed. After leaving home, Norvell went to work for Citizen’s Bank in Center where she was head bookkeeper there. She retired after 27 years with the bank. The most precious moments in Norvell’s life were spent surrounded by family and friends. Whether it was cooking amazing cuisine or enjoying a game of 42, the laughter and love shared within the walls of her home will be treasured forever. Norvell was a member of the Hurst Street Church of Christ in Center.

Myoe Min, 28, of Center, Texas, passed away on February 19, 2018 in Center. He was born on January 12, 1990 in Myanmar.

Myoe moved to the United States in 2007 and went straight to work in Arizona and then Iowa before moving to Texas. He began working for Tyson in 2015. Myoe was not afraid to get his hands dirty and was an extremely hard working individual. A large part of his motivation was family. He did all that he could to help support his parents, brothers and sisters that still live in Myanmar. He was so proud of one of brothers in Myanmar, Naing Naing Puang, who graduated from college. Myoe stood behind him in this accomplishment and did what he could to help get him through that journey. Although he worked hard, he also enjoyed taking a break and playing or watching soccer with his family and friends here in the states. Myoe was a very quiet and reserved young man, but he loved his family beyond words and will be dearly missed.

Wilfred H. Harris


 

 

Wilfred H. Harris, 87, of Timpson, passed away on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 in Timpson.  Graveside services will be held at 11:00 am on Thursday, February 15, 2018 at Woodlawn Cemetery in Timpson, Texas with Bishop Neal Cox and Dennis Cox, officiating. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, February 14, 2018 from 6:00-8:00pm at Taylor Funeral Home.
 
Wilfred H. Harris was born on June 19, 1930 to William and Meriam Beckham Harris in Garrison, Texas.  He graduated Garrison High School and went into the Air Force in 1951, where he served 8 years.  He then attended Stephen F. Austin State University, where he attained an Ag Degree. He then worked as a loan officer for Production Credit for 9 years.  He then returned home to raise cattle and kids.  He spent many years working hard at custom bailing square hay bales with his wife, Mary Lynn.  When the rolled hay balers came out, he was one of the first to offer rolled hay to his customers.  Wilfred was also a master welder and could build anything with pipe & steel and helped others learn the welding trade.  He was also a carpenter and he and his uncle Junie Harris worked together to build the house that he and his wife, Mary, lived in at the time of his passing, for the past 43 years.  Wilfred was always a fun-loving prankster, who would bring a turtle into the house and hide It under a pillow in the bed, knowing that Mary Lynn would find it when she made the beds.  He would take all his kids and nieces and nephews frog gigging and shut the light off and take off running in the dark, hollering “Watch out for that snake!”  It was all in fun.  Wilfred joined the LDS Church in 1971.  He held several callings in his church.  Demple tells us that at about 15 years old, Wilfred would bring home baby animals like a rabbit, that grew up and would stand on it’s hind legs to be fed from the table.  He also brought home a baby coon that we gave to his coon hound to raise with her pups.  He said she would let it nurse right beside her pups and after it was a grown coon, when they would hunt, that coon hound would not hurt the coon she raised!  Wilfred caught all kinds of baby animals and brought them home to his kids, a skunk, a coon, an opossum, and even a baby armadillo at one point.
 
Wilfred is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Mary Lynn; daughters: Trena Harris Greer, Gina Harris Barrett and husband, Gordon, Teresa Harris Beard and husband, Sandy; grandchildren: Amber Askins, Wesley Tallant, Brian Beard and Blake Beard; great-grandchildren, Claylee Beard, Brooks Beard, Araina Beard, River Beard, Garrett Askins, Blair Askins, Ryan Tallant, and Cadance Tallant; brother, Charles Harris; sisters: Demple Lunsford, Dot Little, and Mary Ann Swartz; as well as  several very loved nieces and nephews.  
 
He is preceded in death by his parents, William C. and Meriam Beckham Harris; grandson, Jesse Tallant, and son-in-law, Mike Greer.
 
Pallbearers will be Wesley Tallant, Blake Beard, Bryan Beard, Randy Askins, Lee Richards, Bobby Harris.
 
Honorary pallbearers will be Charles Harris and Ralph Roberts.

Julian Rock Lemoine


 

 

Julian Rock “J.R.” Lemoine, 83, of Sardis, TX died on February 12th due to complications following a car accident. J.R. was a tinkerer, cigar-smoker, Dallas Cowboys fan, John Wayne devotee, and proud patriarch of the Lemoine brood. His family gathered around him in love and preparation, but as a true Christian, his spirit never flagged, bolstered in the knowledge that death is not final in Christ. 
 
J.R. will be remembered as the father who led songs as Music Director at Sardis Missionary Baptist when his children were little, and a Papaw who always made sure to start holiday meals with a prayer, and the man who ended Christmas Eve with a celebratory boom of fireworks. He is survived by his wife, Virginia Lemoine and his children, Lisa Christian, Marty Lemoine, Tammy Lemoine, and Joey Lemoine. Twelve grandchildren and fourteen great-grandchildren carry on J.R.’s legacy. 
 
J.R.’s life was storied and full. Born on October 15, 1934 in Cloutierville, LA to Joseph and Isabel Lemoine, J.R. was the fourth of six siblings. At the age of seven, his mother died and through a series of events, J.R. was taken in as the foster child of Tom and Ruby Hollis. The Hollises loved and cared for J.R. as their very own and he was their “Baby” as long as they lived. Under their care, J.R. graduated from Shelbyville High School as an all-around athlete—the quarterback that helped the Dragons make it to the Texas State Semi-Finals. From there, J.R. stepped into a role at Bruce Hardwood Floors where he would work and rise in authority over a 43-year career. In all that time, J.R. always made time to tinker, smoke a cigar, and show up to every event at which his children performed. 
 
J.R. was a man of quiet strength and steady faith. He was capable with a tool, loyal in his devotion, and generous with his possessions. 
 
A graveside service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 15 at Sardis Cemetery with Bro. Chuck Horton officiating. Visitation will be held from 12:00 -1:30 p.m. at Magnum Funeral Home. Memorial donations may be sent to Sardis Cemetery: 6034 FM 414; Center, TX 75935.
 
Survived by:
 
Wife: Virginia Lemoine
 
Sisters: Sally Wilson, Elizabeth Harris, and Donnie Moore
 
Children: Lisa Christian, Marty Lemoine, Tammy Lemoine, and Joey Lemoine
 
Grandchildren: Leslie Panaro, Crystal Kennon, Liza Firmin, Joseph Lemoine, Lindsey Thompson, Brooke Lane, Jade Cain, Jessica Phillips, Lauren Christian, Jeremiah Lemoine, Ashton Campbell, and Whitney Lemoine
 
14 Great-grandchildren
 
Preceded in death by:
 
Parents: Joseph and Isabel Lemoine; Tom and Ruby Hollis
 
Brothers and Sister: Joe Lemoine, Lee Lemoine, and Genevia Evans

Martha Eubanks, 99, of Logansport, Louisiana passed away on February 10, 2018 in Shreveport. She was born on November 25, 1918 in Shelbyville, Texas to James Munroe Green and Sarah Josephine Johnson Green. Funeral services will be at 1:00 PM on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 at First Baptist Church in Logansport with Bro. Charles Hall and Dr. William T. Crosby officiating. Interment will follow at O.E. Price Memorial Cemetery in Logansport. A visitation will be from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM on Monday, February 12, 2018 at First Baptist Church in Logansport. 
 
Martha attended Stephen F. Austin State University and received her Bachelor’s Degree in Home Economics. While on a double date one evening, Martha happened to meet Claude Eubanks. Something caught her eye, and later the two decided to see where this interest took them. It was the start of something wonderful and on June 20, 1942, Martha and Claude were married. A beautiful life was born that day filled with family, friends, and great memories. 
 
Nana, as her grandchildren and great-grandchildren called her, was an avid reader. She loved the adventures that she could go on in the pages she read. She also liked to try her hand at a game of 42. Lots of laughs were shared around the table when a game would strike up with family. A homemaker at heart, Martha also was a talented seamstress. She could sew and crochet some intricate and gorgeous creations. One of the most memorable things about her was that every year, she made cases of jelly. She was great at canning and her jelly was worth sharing. Martha was a faithful member of Logansport Baptist Church for almost 50 years. 
 
Martha is survived by her sons, James Eubanks of Athens, Louisiana and Clifford Eubanks and wife, Vonda of Logansport, Louisiana; grandchildren, Vanessa Byrd and husband, Brian, Rafe Eubanks and wife, Carrie Ann, Stephen Eubanks and wife, Michelle, and Leigh Ann Winderweedle and husband, Phillip; eight great-grandchildren; and a host of extended family and friends. 
 
She is preceded in death by her husband, Claude Sims Eubanks; parents, J.M. and Sarah Green; brothers, Bura Allen Green and Haskell Green; and sisters, Ruby Harris, LaMerle Young, Alma Green, Alibell Campbell, and Elizabeth Harris.
 
The family requests that memorial donations be made to the Gym Kitchen at Logansport First Baptist Church.

Patricia “Trish” Ann Denby Wade, 57, of Savoy, Texas, passed away on February 5, 2018 in Savoy. She was born on May 14, 1960 in Center, Texas to Henry Lamar Denby and Frances Jean White Denby. A graveside service will be held at 3:00 PM on Saturday, February 10, 2018 at West Hamilton Cemetery with Bro. Lamar Denby, Jr. officiating. 
 
Trish grew up in the Goober Hill Community and graduated from Shelbyville High School. She continued her education at Grayson County College where she became a Licensed Vocational Nurse. Trish was a quiet, but caring person who enjoyed having fun with family and friends. She also loved spending time outdoors hunting, fishing or horseback riding. If you were feeling lucky, you might challenge her to a game of pool, but there were no guarantees you would win because she really enjoyed the game. Chi-Ann, Pinball Wizard, Vidor and Mia were just a few of the names that her friends and family would call her. Each one defined something special about Trish that they all loved.  Of all the moments of her life, the birth of her grandchildren ranked at the top of the list for Trish. The genuine love she had for her grandbabies was immeasurable. 
 
Trish is survived by her son, Joshua Gallier and wife, Ashley of Savoy; mother, Frances Jean White Denby; brothers, Bro. Lamar Denby, Jr. and wife, Roxanne of Huntington, Clarence Denby and wife, Brenda of Etoile, Jamie Denby and wife, Debbie of Huntington, and Michael Ray Denby and wife, Florence of Goober Hill Community; sister, Sheila Horrocks and husband, Steve of Etoile; grandchildren, Braylee, Jasper, and Alice Gallier; and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends. 
 
She is preceded in death by her father, Henry Lamar Denby.

Mike Byrn Green, 73, of Alamosa, Colorado, passed away at his home on January 30, 2018. Mike was born in Atlanta, Georgia on November 21, 1944, to John Willard and Peggy Byrn Green. Graveside services will be held Thursday, February 8, 2018 at 2PM at Woodlawn Cemetery, Timpson, Texas, with Bro. William Dee Daniel officiating.
 
Growing up, Mike was a champion skeet shooter and spent his childhood summers hunting and fishing in Spar City, Colorado. He served in the United States Coast Guard and took great delight in telling about packing parachutes and then being required to “test” them every month by jumping out of a plane. He attended the University of Colorado Boulder where he majored in hotel and restaurant management. His love of food and cooking led him to become chef at the Creede Hotel, and later, to create a restaurant at the Old Miner’s Inn. He enjoyed being a chef for several years before purchasing land in the San Luis Valley on the Rio Grande. There he raised alfalfa and hay for the last 20 years.
 
Mike is survived by his sister, Joan Green Jeffrey of Liberty, Texas; his niece, Julia Jeffrey Rathgeber and her husband, Ross, of Austin, Texas; and his two “great-grandnieces,” Byrn Anne Rathgeber of Austin, Texas, and Georgia Ann Jeffrey of Liberty, Texas. He will be missed by numerous friends and colleagues, especially Jimmy Brennan, Veronica Casias, Maria Martinez, and the Green Farm Crew. Greenie was kind-hearted, good humored and always had a mischievous twinkle in his eye.
 
There will be a Memorial Service held on Tuesday, February 6, 2018 at 10:00 A.M. at Rogers Family Mortuary in Alamosa, Colorado. After services, Mike will be heading home to Timpson, Texas, where he will be buried at Woodlawn Cemetery near his parents. Burial arrangements are being handled by Rogers Family Mortuary in Alamosa, Colorado, and Taylor Funeral Home in Timpson, Texas.

Alford Samford


 

 

Alford “A.L.” Samford, 85, of Joaquin, Texas, passed away on February 1, 2018 in Center. He was born on February 16, 1932 in Center to J.E. and Molly Samford. Funeral services will be at 11:00 AM on Saturday, February 3, 2018 at Mangum Funeral Home Chapel with Bro. Charles Williams officiating. Interment will follow at Jackson Cemetery. A visitation will be held prior to service time from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM on Saturday, February 3, 2018 at Mangum Funeral Home. 
A.L. grew up in Joaquin and attended Joaquin ISD. At a young age, he went to work with his father at the local sawmill. In his early twenties, A.L. served in the National Guard for a few years before returning home to work. Hard work was never a stranger to A.L., and he did whatever was necessary in order to help provide for his family. He would find a career in the Oil Field working two week shifts with one week at home. Even though the job was strenuous and required time away, he knew it would take care of his family. For over forty years, A.L. remained in the field before retiring and settling back into East Texas. 
 
A.L. had a blessed life outside of the oil and gas industry. A young lady down the road, Melvie Lambert, happened to catch his eye. She raised chickens, as did he, but A.L. would still go down the road to buy them from Melvie just so he could see her. Very persistent, he finally told her that he wanted to marry her. Melvie told A.L. that she wasn’t sure her son would be okay with it, but after some persuasion, the two were married on September 24th, 1960. Their two families joined as one and through the years, they created a new and beautiful life together.
A.L. was an avid outdoorsman. He loved to squirrel hunt and most especially, enjoyed fishing. There was no place like the Sabine River bottom, and A.L. wouldn’t have wanted to be anywhere else. Family was extremely important to him and the time he was able to spend with them were moments treasured. They would come together for domino nights and a fish fry in the back yard enjoying all of the stories and laughter shared. A.L. was a kind-hearted, down-to-earth gentleman who will dearly missed by his loved ones. He was a member of Jackson Baptist Church in Joaquin.
 
A.L. is survived by his daughter, Sandra Riley and husband, Lee of Oklahoma; son, Jerry Patton of Lampasas; three grandsons, Troy Lee, Kenneth Lee, and Jesse Lee; and niece, Portia Cox. 
He is preceded in death by his wife, Melvie Lambert Samford; parents, J.E. and Molly Samford; and brother, E.C. Samford.
 
The family is being served by Mangum Funeral Home. To send condolences or to sign an online register, please visit www.mangumfh.net.
