Paul M Ross

 

Paul M. Ross, 91, of Center, passed away Friday, August 20, 2021, at his home in Center.

Visitation will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., Monday, August 23, 2021, at Watson & Sons Funeral Home in Center.  Funeral service will be held 4:00 p.m., Tuesday, August 24, 2021, at Watson & Sons Chapel with Bro. J.C. Lewis officiating.  Interment will follow at Fairview Cemetery in Center.

Paul Ross, born in Center, Shelby County Texas.  He was always very proud of that, always kept land, cattle & residence in Center even when working other places.  Lived & worked in Sabine County during the 1970’s but was in Center every few days.  He Loved Center Texas.

Paul had no hobbies.  He took everything too serious for it to be a hobby.  He wanted to kill all the squirrels Catch all the fish, gig all the bullfrogs, play with all the rattlesnakes, get every person saved and catch all the criminals. From the time he was a little boy he would ramble in the woods with his dogs, hunting & fishing.  And riding his horse sometimes miles a day.  The son of a cattleman-grocery-meat market owner he also grew up working at these jobs.  Tending livestock & riding a horse was something he enjoyed till his early 70’s.  He was 10 years old when he went on his first cattle drive, with his Daddy, uncle, cousins & 40-50 head of cattle.  Came from Arcadia through the Center square, to Antioc on Flat Fork Creek.  Said he was as happy as if he had been on the Chisolm Trail.

At age 16 after his Daddy’s funeral he went to Demming, New Mexico with an aunt & other kinfolks.  There he was enrolled in New Mexico A&M for a while.  But there was too many Jack Rabbits and other animals that needed hunted & too many fish to catch.

Paul Ross could not let something like college interfere with hunting, fishing & roping cattle therefore he was sent back to Center & enrolled in Stephen F. Austin in Nacogdoches Texas.  Almost same problem here.  Too many squirrels, coons & possums to hunt, to many fish to catch & too many cattle to rope so college was put on hold. (Permanent hold)

Paul was in the U.S. Army.  He fought in Korea.  This was something he did not brag about but was very proud of doing & would have done it again if needed to.  Paul Ross is a very Proud American.

A few years past & on July 7, 1955 Paul married Bobbie Nichols.  That marrige never ended.  During the next 66 years they raised their kids & grandkids and went lots of miles together.

In the early 60’s Paul was a City Councilman in Center.  He also became a Deputy Game Warden for several years.  This was the beginning of his political & law enforcement years.  During this time Paul accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his savior (1965).  He took this very serious as anybody that knows him can testify.  He witnessed to hundreds of people through the years & led many to Jesus.  This was a great difference in his life before Jesus.  People that knew the before & after Paul Ross knew the difference.  He was a Member of Central Baptist Church for years.  Later he joined Center Missionary Baptist Church & stayed there till the end.

Paul worked as head guide for Jerry Waters at Hawkeye Hunting Club in Center for several years.  Then in the late 1960’s-mid 70’s he ran Operation Whitetail, a hunting club in Sabine and San Augustine Counties, operated by Sportsmans Clubs of Texas.  At that time it was one of the biggest high fence hunting areas around.

Paul was appointed Sheriff of Shelby County on June 20, 1978 after the Sheriff that had won the election resigned.  He was re-elected in 1980, 1984-1988.  He served as Sheriff through December 31, 1992.  That set a record as the longest serving Sheriff of Shelby County.  That record stands to this day.  14 ½ years.  A lot of people still refer to him as Sheriff or Too Tall Paul.

Of all the jobs he had he took Sheriffing the most serious.  It was the only one that interfered with his hunting, fishing & cattle.  Paul loved Shelby County.

For several years after he was Sheriff he made up for lost time with his hunting, fishing, cattle, hay production & family.

He always loved music & meeting singers.  We have many pictures that he was very proud of with him and a lot of different singers he met and actually knew on a friendship basis.  The last few years he really enjoyed listening to music he had gathered up in the last 65-70 years.  Especially his Church Music.

Paul was able to get up and around some till the last few days of his life.  He was at home with his wife Bobbie and several family members and friends right up until his last breath.

Paul Ross did it Paul Ross’ way!

He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Bobbie Ross of Center; son, Lewis Allen Ross and wife Kay of Center; daughter, Bobbie Jean Wood and husband Wayne of Center; grandchildren, Danny Paul Ross, April Bourghs and husband Joseph, Brandy Lewis and husband J.C., and Matt Wood and wife Kelli; great grandchildren, Riley Ross, Hannah Ross, Justice Bourghs, Anna Lewis, Emma Lewis, Caspian Lewis, Kelsi Wood, and Maddie Wood.

Preceded in death by his parents, Lewis Allen Ross and Addie V. Swindle Ross; great grandchildren, Mallori Nicole Wood and Michael Wayne Wood; brothers, Alton S. Ross and Robert B. Ross; and sister, Paula Ross.

Pallbearers will be Lewis Ross, Newton Johnson, Dr. Dixon Golden, Don Wheeler, James Carroll, Jeff Wilburn, Danny Paul Ross, and Matt Wood.

Reba Ann Powers

 

Dr. Reba Ann Jernigan Powers, 70, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Sunday morning, August 15, 2021.

She was born to the late Paul and Miriam Jernigan in Center, Texas. Paul was a baptist preacher, and Reba loved to reminisce about taking trips with her father to visit church members.

Her faith was abundant, but she also had a bit of superstition, which came from the Adams’ side of her family. She always said it was bad luck to have a weeping willow in your yard because as soon as it was large enough to shade your grave, you would pass away. She was known to pull a U-turn if she saw a black cat crossing her path and loved passing on the tradition of the scary stories that her grandmother (Mrs. Georgia) told her.

Reba was married to Harry Powers in September of 1975. She loved to tell everyone they had been married for 75 years.

Reba was passionate about literacy, learning and spreading the gospel. A lifelong scholar and educator, she earned her doctorate in 2000 from Texas A&M University in Commerce, Texas. Her research was about the importance of literacy, something she passed on to her children by reading several books aloud to them through the years. She had begun to teach her grandson, Huxley, the love of books as well.

One of the last things that she shared with loved ones was the old hymn, "Jesus is tenderly calling me home.” She would often hum a tune from the old Heavenly Highways Hymnal while keeping her hands busy by knitting or crocheting. A fresh glass of iced tea was never far away.

She taught countless people how to make the perfect biscuit in a cast iron skillet, using the same recipe that was passed down from generations of women in her family. Her legacy of biscuit making and fiber arts lives on in generations of people that she met throughout her life.

Reba is survived by her adoring husband Harry Powers of Amarillo, TX and their four children: Lucas Powers of Olean, NY; Dr. Liza Powers of Houston, TX; Liberty Powers and wife Kallie, beloved grandson Huxley of Amarillo, TX; and Lydia Powers of Lake Charles, LA. She is also survived by her siblings Rebecca Towns and Woodie Jernigan.

Reba’s family would like to express their gratitude to the immeasurable amount of students she taught throughout her life, who she treated like her own family.

She was preceded in death by her brothers, Rickie and Fern Jernigan.
