Bill Pridgen

 

Bill Pridgen, 94, of Joaquin, passed away Friday, March 11, 2022, in Nacogdoches.

Graveside service will be held 3:00 p.m., Sunday, March 13, 2022, at Oaklawn Memorial Park in Center.  Visitation will be held one hour prior to service at Watson & Sons Funeral Home.

Born November 6, 1927, in Haslam, Bill is the son of Lurline Glaze Pridgen and Claude Pridgen.  Bill has lived in Joaquin all of his life. He grew up loving to hunt and fish, and his children have fond memories of camping with him, Jane and family. He learned how to weld at an early age working with his dad and became well known for his expertise as a welder. Later he was a Superintendent at Fabsteel, where he worked for many years. He was always loved for his quick wit, spunk and humor, as well as integrity, being level headed and rock solid. He loved his times at the deer lease, where he was affectionately know as ‘Doe Bullet’. The biggest change in Bill’s life came at age 80, when he accepted Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, while watching a Bro. Stanley tape at home on Cathy’s birthday. After that he was compelled to witness to others and share the love of Christ with all. He was a wonderful dad and grandad, and his favorite times were when he was surrounded by family. He will be well remembered as one of a kind, there is not another like him.

He played baseball throughout his early years and was a second baseman for Robert E. Lee High School, Tyler Junior College and Northeast Louisiana University. Thereafter, he graduated from The University of Texas at Austin-Red McCombs School of Business with a degree in Business and Petroleum Land Management. He began his career as a petroleum field landman working primarily in Texas, Alabama, Florida and Mississippi. Gil’s last years in the oil and gas industry were as Land Manager with Harvest Natural Resources in Houston and Hawkwood Energy in Denver. Gil was a Certified Professional Landman (CPL) and former proud member of the ETAPL, HAPL and AAPL. Gil spent his last years with his wife, Pat, in Galveston, Texas playing golf at the Galveston Country Club, watching his Texas Longhorn football, volunteering with Meals on Wheels, enjoying Mardi Gras with the Momus Krewe and attending services at Moody Methodist Church. He enjoyed watching the sunsets from his beach house with his wife, beloved mother-in-law (Suzanne), many friends and his faithful dog, Tessy May. Gil was an avid golfer and played on any course every chance he could get. Two of Gil’s dreams were fulfilled in 2017 when he attended The Masters, and in 2018, he finally played golf at Pebble Beach. Gil also loved college football season and enjoyed every moment watching the Texas Longhorns and flying the UT flag on game day. Hook ’Em, Gil. Gil was loved deeply by his wife Pat, their daughters Madeline and Mackenzie, his son-in-law Logan, all of their family, and countless friends. Gil will be in our hearts forever.

Ruth Baldwin Stephens

 

Ruth Baldwin Stephens
July 28, 1930-March 1, 2022

Ruth LaVerne Baldwin Stephens went home to be with her Heavenly Father on March 1, 2022 at the age of 91. A service celebrating her life will begin with visitation at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, March 4th, followed by a memorial at 2:00 at Woods New Hope Baptist Church in Panola County. Her pastor, Rodney Puryear will conduct the ceremony with interment to follow at the nearby Woods Cemetery under the direction of Watson & Sons Funeral Home.

Ruth started her life’s journey on July 28, 1930 in the Woods Post Office Community as she entered the lives of her devoted parents, Clarence and Bessie Lee Baldwin. Born in a small wood framed unpainted house built by family members, she was joined 18 months later by sister, Fannie. Her educational path led her to Woods School until 8th grade, then transferred to Carthage ISD. When the oil and gas boom hit and the school became overcrowded, she finished her senior year, graduating with the 1947 Class of Tenaha HS. Furthering her training she attended Satterwhite Business College in Lufkin Texas. She was employed by Lufkin Motor Company as Office Manager/Bookkeeper for Lynn Metteauer until her first retirement.

She met and married Collis Stephens, Sept 2, 1950. Lufkin offered a wonderful life for the couple as they made steadfast friends through church who loved to travel and fish together. Collis, a self-trained carpenter, built 3 beautiful homes, and offered affordable houses for many young couples. Every summer they entertained their nieces and nephews during days of movies, driving lessons and bowling. During this time they had a special young man enter their lives. Danny Mott filled a void as they had no children, and they learned how to parent during his teenage years. Because of their support and mentoring he and his wife, Marivel, have remained close to her.

When her father became ill, Ruth and Collis built a beautiful ranch style home, returning her back to her Woods roots. They both took part and renewed fellowship at Woods New Hope Baptist Church where she served as treasurer for many years. Mission Trips and building projects honored God and man. Ruth could not totally retire as she became employed by John Cain & Associates and those steep stairs kept her in shape through her 70s. Bookkeeping and taxes were always on her mind as she saved copies of everything...just in case she might need them for an IRS audit.

Ruth is preceded in death by her parents, husband and Collis’s parents, Clyde and Lena Stephens, his brothers and sisters, and brother in law, Dock Watson. Left to cherish her memory are Fannie Baldwin Watson, Brenda & Gene Giles, Glenda & Charlie Leflett, Steven Watson, Danny & Marivel Mott. Special cousins were dear to her heart as were great nieces, nephews and a host of friends who added much joy. A special thanks to caregiver, Renae Riddle Courtney, during the last months of her life for her constant care.
