Mary Evelyn Tyson Johnson


 

 

Mary Evelyn Tyson Johnson passed away on June 17th, 2018 at age 90, in Nacogdoches, Texas. Born in Timpson, Texas, to Gilmer and Mary Tyson, she grew up in the Waterman community of Center, Shelby County, Texas.  As all friends and family know, she met and married her beloved husband of 60 years, E.F "Foots" Johnson, also of Center, in their hometown.
 
Residing the majority of their life together in Dallas, Texas, they always returned to their farm in Waterman, every moment they could.  She liked to laugh and tell people that her address was Interstate 20 due to the endless hours of traveling between Dallas and Center.
 
Evelyn inherited her mother's artistic talent and gardening interests.  The latter led her to share these interests through study, teaching and volunteer work.  However, she expanded her interests in other areas too.  She had a passion to meet people and be involved with civic organizations.  This passion provided for many unique experiences and opportunities as well as lifelong friends; such as being invited to demonstrate the ‘Art of making Lye Soap,’ Pioneer style, at both the 1968 Texas Folklife Festival held by the Institute of Texan Cultures at the HemisFair, San Antonio, Texas, and the nation’s 1976 U.S Bicentennial Folklife Festival celebration at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC.  She was a member of the Eastern Star, Mesquite Art Club, Mesquite Garden Club, East Texas Archeology Society, Daughters of the Republic of Texas, Mesquite Citizens Police Academy, Shelby County Historical Society and Kappa Alpha Theta.  In addition, she authored her book of family heritage and tales called Memories, with a second in progress.  She was a member of the Old Home Missionary Baptsit Church in Shelby County.
 
Evelyn was preceded in death by her husband and two grandchildren.  She is survived by son Forrest Tyson Johnson and wife, Sharon of Center, daughter Melody Johnson Hayes of Nacogdoches, and daughter Shawn Johnson Burns and husband Alan of Dallas. Other survivors include her five grandchildren – Colby, Seth, Jarrod, Nathan & Shelby, and nine great-grandchildren. 
 
A private family service was held where she joined E.F. by his side once again.  In lieu of flowers, her wish was for memorial donations to be sent respectfully to: 
Old Home Cemetery Fund

Jimmy E. Oates


 

 

Jimmy E. Oates was called home on June 17, 2018. He was born to Jessie E. and Vashti Ross Oates on June 8, 1945 in the Dreka Community of Shelby County. He leaves behind his beloved wife of 50 years, Judy Ann Oates and their three daughters and sons-in-law, 9 grandchildren, and 8 great-grandchildren: Denise & Jimmy Chamberlain of Center, TX; Tracy & Bill Scudder of Covington, LA; Jennifer & Mitch Berry of Lindale, TX; Amberlyn & Evan Fronheiser of Jasper, TX and their daughters Kayleigh and Lexie; Sam Scudder of Covington, LA; Flint & Beth Berry of Benton, LA and their sons Hunter, Jackson, and Stetson; Jessica & Jacob Phelps of Virginia Beach, VA and their daughters Danika, Emma, and Maxine; Joanna Berry of Lindale, TX and Destiny Chamberlain of Center, TX.  He is also survived by his sister and brother-in-law, Joyce & Guy Flournoy, as well as brother and sister-in-law, Larry & Kathy Oates, along with numerous nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews and a host of friends.  He is preceded in death by his parents, Jessie & Vashti Oates; paternal grandparents, Sam and Bessie Oates; and maternal grandparents, Booker and Molly Lout Ross. 
 
He was a member of Landmark Lodge #214 F & AM in Keithville, LA and the Hunter Magnolia Baptist Church in Hunter, LA. Services will be officiated by Bro. Derek Lightfoot at Mangum Funeral Home at 11:00 AM on Wednesday, June 20, 2018. Visitation will be held from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM on Tuesday, June 19, 2018 at Mangum Funeral Home. 
 
Pallbearers will be Sam Scudder, Flint Berry, Evan Fronheiser, Josh Rawls, Cody Rawls, Brady Bailey, Jackson Harlan, Hunter Harlan, and Trey Berry.  
 
He was a family man, first and foremost. Judy was the center of his world and their marriage was the foundation we built our lives upon. All of his children and grandchildren knew that all they had to do was pick up the phone and he would show up, any time or anywhere. He tucked quarters into penny loafers just for that purpose. He made sure we all grew up camping and fishing. We caught an awful lot of fish on Toledo Bend for a boat full of loud children. Our childhoods were full of the memories built around those trips. He took two generations of kids up to Camp Albert Pike and, later, Lake Ouachita in Arkansas and wanted to make sure that the third generation would get a chance to go. He also managed to somehow make every kid feel like they were his favorite. We were all so confident in the fact that we were “it” that no one even thought to ask to make sure. 
 
They say that how often and in what way you are remembered determines the type of person you were in life. There isn’t a porch swing sat on, a hook that hits the water, or the crunch of tires on a back road that happens without him being remembered. He was the cornerstone of our family and, as such, is so much a part of who we are that we remember him in everything we do. The most we can hope for is that someday we will leave behind the kind of legacy he has. 
 
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial donations be made to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, 5433 Westheimer Rd #300, Houston, TX 77056 or by visiting https://donate.lls.org/lls/donate.
 
The family is being served by Mangum Funeral Home in Center, Texas. To send condolences or to sign an online register, please visit www.mangumfh.net.

Funeral service will be held at 10:00 a.m., Wednesday, June 6, 2018, at Watson & Sons Funeral Home in Center with Bro. R.B. Elumbaugh and Bro. Chet Brake officiating.  Interment will follow at Spring Ridge Cemetery in San Augustine County, Texas.  Visitation will be held prior to service time, beginning at 9:00 a.m.
 
Dana was born February 11, 1963, in Center, to George Fane Adams and Effie Bernice Warr Adams. She was most known for her loving and giving heart as she ministered to her community by lending a helping hand to anyone she met.  Her talents included mowing yards for the elderly, operating her bulldozer to assist neighbors with dirt work and tree removal, staying up and sitting nights with the sickly, cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping and delivery for her neighbors who were shut-ins.  Dana was an avid gardener and followed the almanac to assure the most fruitful produce.  She was an excellent hunter, loved fishing and spending time on the Attoyac.  She processed her own sausage and wildlife meats.  Nothing went to waste.  Her little slice of peacefulness was her home place on Woodland Acres Lake.  Near and dear to her heart was ministering and nurturing children, nieces, nephews and friend’s children.  Gathering as many children as she could fit into a vehicle, she brought them to VBS to learn the love of Jesus.  Her special bundle of joy was her daughter, Hanna Fountain, and her granddaughter, Kali Fountain.  She will always hold a special place in our hearts. Dana was a member of VFW Post 8904 Ladies Auxiliary, West Shelby County VFD Ladies Auxiliary, and Mt. Herman Missionary Baptist Church.
