Carolyn Sue Williams Caldwell

 

 

Carolyn Sue Williams Caldwell, 61, of Center, Texas, passed away on September 18, 2019 in Center. She was born on November 22, 1957 in Center to Clark Paul Williams and Emma Irene Fancher Williams. Funeral services will be at 3:00 PM on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at Mangum Funeral Home with Bro. Son Windham officiating. Interment will follow at White Rock Cemetery.

 

A visitation will be held prior to the service from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at Mangum Funeral Home. 
         
As a youngster, Carolyn grew up with her nieces and nephews, but we were really more like sisters and brothers because of the close-knit lives that we lived.  During the day, we would play hopscotch by drawing designs on the dirt with a stick and stringing up a rope from tree to tree to flip and swing or what you might call “old school gymnastics!”  We would run and play hide and seek outside at night and would hide under the house with no thought of snakes, spiders or any other varmint.  They were probably more scared of us than we were of them.  Carolyn and I enjoyed going to the old chicken house and playing in 50’s model old cars that were parked there. They had no more life in them but for us kids, they opened a whole new playing field for our imaginations.  Carolyn would love for us to take our bikes to the top of Grigsby Hill and ride down to Mamaw’s drive but usually we were going too fast to make the driveway and would have to go all the way down to the bottom of the hill and turn around and of course—do it again!   There was a cut across through the woods between Carolyn’s house and Thomas’s house.  We would always catch the horse and riding bareback see just how fast we could run from her house to Thomas’s or stop by the pond and catch crawfish with bacon and a string.  Cane pole fishing, stringing popcorn, sweeping the dirt yard, and watching our hot breath float in the cold air when we got under the heavy quilt covers at night, catching fireflies and drinking tomato soup from a mug.  These are some of the fond memories that I have of growing up with Carolyn and there are many more.      

 

Carolyn and the rest of us loved to dance.  Mamaw would love to clap and encourage us to dance ‘til we dropped.  Dancing to songs like Ernest Tubb’s “Walkin’ the Floor Over You,” Roger Miller’s “King of The Road” and “Dang Me,” and of course Hank Williams’ “Hey Good Lookin” as well as shake rattle and roll songs where we would dance until our sides were hurting.  Cuttin’ a rug came natural seemed like-- we were so innocent and free as kids.  

 

As Carolyn got old enough for marriage and babies, she had resolved to the idea that she could never have children.  But in years to come and much water gone under many bridges, she was blessed with two handsome boys, Joseph and Doc.  I came across the following poem that I think she would love for them to accept as a love letter to them.

 

You are loved
for the boys you were
the men you have become
and the precious son
you will always be to me
        Love,
        Moma

Jesse T. Ybarra

 

 

 

Jesse T. Ybarra, 88, of Center, passed away Tuesday, September 17, 2019, in Nacogdoches.
A funeral mass will be held at 11AM, Monday, Sept. 23rd at St. Therese Catholic Church in Center.


Jesse Theodore Ybarra was born July 20, 1931, the second of four children, in Texarkana, Texas living there until his senior year of school when the family moved to Houston.


His love of horses began as child.  After high school he went on the rodeo circuit riding bulls with his best friend Buck.  Jesse left the rodeo circuit to serve his country in the Navy as a Corpsman with two tours in The Korean War where he earned; a National Defense Service Medal, United Nations Service Medal, Korean Service Medal and a Good Conduct Medal. After serving his nation he returned to The States and used the medical skills working at Memorial Hospital in downtown Houston, then Spring Branch Hospital later opening his own business “Clinical Laboratory of Huntsville”.  The love of rodeo still in his heart he began rodeo clowning on the weekends.  In 1997, he started to ride cutting horses on Miss Big Lynx.


Jesse loved spending time with his children, he was a football, softball, tennis coach as well as helping with the Special Olympics on equestrian events.  Sharing his love for horses with his children he spent many happy weekends travelling to various horse shows where they participated.  Jesse was also involved in Boy Scouts from being a Boy Scout as a child to helping scouts earn their Horsemanship and First Aide badges along with camping trips.


Jesse was very much a true Texan (Texas the friendship state) He carried a Texas flag to Korea during his tours.  He loved music from classical to his favorite country music.  His bucket list became complete when he visited Tombstone, with his love of westerns.  If you did not have the pleasure of watching Westerns with him, you do not know what you missed.  From John Wayne, James Arness in the early years, Gunsmoke, to Bonanza as we got older (continuing in the never-ending repeat cycle today)


As a child Jesse always wanted to live on a ranch.  He was 61 years old when his dream was fulfilled by moving to Center Texas.  He left his 165-acre ranch on September 17th at the age of 88 years old with a big smile on his face. 


He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth Ybarra of Center, children; Jesse Ybarra of Spring, Jana Lynne Ybarra Viviano of Jersey Village, Jennifer Anne Ybarra Mock of Spring, Michael Ruark of Center, and Gavin Ybarra of The Woodlands, 9 grandchildren, 7 great grandchildren, sisters; Hope Smithson of San Antonio and Sister Mary Ybarra of San Jose, California, numerous nieces and nephews.


Preceded in death by his parents, Jesus Ernesto Ybarra and Maria Esperanza Gonzalez, and his brother, Ruben Tamez.

Jerry Frank Summers

 

 

Jerry Frank Summers, 80, of Gary, Texas passed away Monday, September 16, 2019 in Gary, Texas surrounded by loved ones.  Born August 9, 1939, in Hamburg, Arkansas to Leonard Frank Summers and Helen Blanch (Moore) Summers. Funeral service will be held at 2 PM on Wednesday, September 18, 2019, at Bethel Baptist Church, Hwy 315, Clayton, Texas with Bro. Eric Pledger and Jeremy Summers officiating.  

 

Visitation will be held prior to the service from 1PM – 2PM on Wednesday, September 18, 2019 at Bethel Baptist Church, Hwy 315, Clayton, Texas.

 

Jerry made his move to Texas as a teenager when his father Frank followed his call into the ministry to attend TBI in Henderson, Texas.  He attended Henderson and Marshall High Schools.  Although he graduated from Marshall, he always considered Henderson Home.  Jerry loved his family, his friends, music, and Jesus.  Work or play he always had Southern Gospel or Old Country playing and knew every word to every song.  He used any opportunity given to say “Let me tell you about My Jesus”.  Jerry was blessed with many work ventures through the years. However, he preferred working as his own boss and on his own schedule.  His most favored adventures of these would be, owning Summers Building Supply and Summers Building Contractors with his father and younger brother, owning J’s Corner Mini Mart in Mt. Enterprise, and owning and retiring from Summerstime Ice Company in Timpson.  Not to be forgotten, temporarily coming out of retirement to work for Gary ISD as he oversaw maintenance and the growth of the school campus.  He mentored many kids during his time at Gary ISD as well as Mt. Enterprise ISD when his children attended there and was known for leading cheers at pep rally’s and games for each.  Jerry and the love of his life, Cindy, retired to Lake Murvaul in 2015.  Jerry was a member of Bethel Baptist Church of Clayton, Texas.  

 

Jerry is survived by his wife of 33 years, Cindy Hudson Summers; children, Regina (DeWayne) Pace, Amy (Rusty) Dorman, Jeremy Summers, and Casie (Robby) Spivey; grandchildren, Kendall Casey, Colton (Haley) Casey, Holly (Seth) Shrell, Heather Deason, Raini Dorman, Jack Harris, Megan Harris, Chet (Shea) Dorman, Miles Dorman, Dayni Spivey, Saydi Spivey, Kennedy Summers; great grandchildren, Presleigh and Conley Casey, Hudson and Hunter Shrell, Alivia Deason, Gemma Harris, and Knox Dorman.

 

He is preceded in death by his parents, Frank and Blanch Summers; brothers, Gene Summers, Dale Summers; and daughter, Erica Deason Harris.
