Peter was born Nov. 18, 1943 in Houston, the son of Earl Peter Yurgensen and Florence Elizabeth Dobson. He grew up in Houston in the Spring Branch area where he graduated from Spring Branch High School in 1961. He did a lot of interesting things in his life, but the one he was probably most proud of was entering the Marines right out of high school. He was one of 250 chosen to be a part of the group now known as Force Recon. He was in the first contingent. Family and friends say he was "a pretty bad ass dude." He was sent to Cuba for the missile crisis and then went to Southeast Asia where he was a part of a highly classified, multi service, special ops unit which conducted covert, unconventional warfare operations. He didn't talk about that time much, but was a part of the group for two years prior to the first official U.S. troops of the Vietnam conflict arriving in country. After leaving Southeast Asia, he and his team ran clandestine missions in Nicaragua, El Salvador, Panama, and several countries in Africa before he was discharged. After the Marine Corps, he graduated from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville with a degree in business. After a long career in finance, he retired from Texas Instruments when he took a parachute retirement package at the ripe old age of 48. He didn't really retire as he and his wife, Rae, moved to Oklahoma to run a cattle ranch. He also worked/volunteered for various Texas and Oklahoma law enforcement agencies and even helped the Mennonites build their house. He probably worked harder during that time than when he had a full time job. Eventually, he moved back to Huntsville and then to the Lake Livingston area. He lived an amazing life. He saw things that others could only imagine while he was in the Marines and continued his exploring later in his life as an avid Harley rider and spent every summer with a group of his friends riding to various parts of the country on their bikes. He was also a 32-degree Mason and was affiliated with the Allen Lodge No. 1435 where he was a past master. Whether it was bull-riding in his youth, sleeping in the jungle in Asia, working in corporations, herding cattle, or riding his Harley on the open road, you could always count on Pete living life to its fullest. Peter is survived by his wife, Rae Nita Reichelt Yurgensen; his daughter, Tonya Yurgensen-Jacks and her husband Kevin Jacks of Houston; brother-in-law, Ted Reichelt of Portland, Ore.; and nieces, Rory Reichelt of Manhattan, Kan., Risa Reichelt of Kodiak, Alaska and Elizabeth LaGravier Rightnower of Rolla, Mo. Peter is preceded in death by his parents and his sister. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in Pete's memory be made to the Semper Fi Fund or the Patriot Guard Riders (whom he rode with for a time). Family members say he would also like his friends to not be sad about his passing but to toast his amazing life with a really expensive good scotch. Cochran Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

TYSON
LIVINGSTON -- Peggy Ann Tyson was born on Nov. 23, 1951 in Mishawaka, Ind. and died on April 4, 2017 in Livingston at 65 years of age. Peggy left behind four sons, Christopher (Livingston), Michael (Hawaii), Robert (Florida) and Tim (Ohio); numerous grandkids, nieces and nephews; sister, Debbie Cherry; and countless other family members and friends. Peggy had the God-given good sense to know what she wanted and make her demands known but was down to earth even finding humor in her own mistakes. Family and friends say she was the perfect combination of firm, yet friendly and bal-anced good-hearted and tough love, which, on occasion, caused speculation that the song "Mama don't take no mess" was written for her. Peggy whole-heartedly backed anyone that she called "friend," frequently responding "Sure, why the hell not" to whatever was being asked from her. She was tough as John Wayne, but gave selflessly of herself and opened her home to others in need. As Peggy's life came and went, she leaves behind a hearty mix of family and friends who will remember her for being a uniquely outspoken individual who was one of the rare few bold enough to live a colorful life. In foresight, she modestly waived traditional funeral services, asking that no one "'fuss" over her, however, family members say tears will still fall and her genuine laughter will be greatly missed. A memorial service was held at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 8, at Pace Funeral Home in Livingston. To send online condolences, go to pacefuneral.com.

Claude loved to travel and visited almost every state and national park in the continental United States with his wife and grandson.

Claude was a dedicated member of the Lions Club, for whom he was proud to serve as president of his local club, zone and region chairman, district chairman, cabinet secretary, vice district governor, and finally dis-trict governor, as well as a Texas Lions Foundation fellow and trustee. Claude enjoyed participating in various fundraisers for charities and service activities and became passionate about programs to prevent blindness, restore eyesight and improve eye health. He served as director, president, and ambassador of the Lions Eye Bank of Texas and spent the last two decades of his life collecting and cataloging used eyeglasses for distribution through the Texas LionsEyeglass Recycling Center and through personal trips to Honduras, Mexico and Africa. For his service, Claude received three International President's Certificates of Appreciation and was awarded two International Leadership Medals. He will be missed by his family and friends, by the people whose career he helped shape at Eastex and who helped shape his, and by the countless individuals who gained vision through his service.

LUNA
LIVINGSTON -- Jesus Maria Luna was born on Nov. 28, 1922 in Lemitar, N.M. and raised nearby in Socorro, a small town south of Albuquerque. He was born to parents, Julian Luna and Barbarita (Gonzales) Luna and died on Sept. 20, 2016 in Livingston. He is preceded in death by his wife, Corine Sanchez Luna. Mr. Luna is survived by his son, Dr. Raymond Luna and wife Grace of Livingston; daughters, Alice Luna Massey and husband Pat of Albuquerque, N.M., Mary Ann Luers and husband Keith of Colorado Springs, Colo., Priscilla Hurley and husband Mike of Denver, Colo. and Julie Luna and Miguel Trujillo of Albuquerque, N.M.; grandchildren, Jeff Luna and wife Vien, Ann Winston and husband Sean, Megan Massey, Brian Massey, Audra Massey, Jonathan Luers, Nathan Luers and wife Lydia, and Jessica Luers; great-grandchildren, Sean Lee Winston and Abigail Luers; and numerous other relatives and friends. His family was quite poor, and he had to work throughout his early life to help with family income. He was always good at math and science and, after high school, he enrolled in the University of New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology. College was interrupted by service in the Air Force as a navigator/bombardier stationed in England and flying missions over Germany in a B-17 bomber. As with many men who served in World War II, until he enlisted, he had never ventured far from his hometown. His experiences in the service were the source of many of his most vivid memories and stories. After the war he returned to college, getting a degree in metallurgical engineering. He also courted and married Corine Sanchez. They moved to Albuquerque where he worked at Sandia National Laboratories until he retired at 65. Jesus and Corine had five children. They ran the household, as was the norm at that time, with Jesus holding a steady job, doing the heavy house repairs and yard work and Corine doing everything else. In 1983 Corine became ill with cancer and later Parkinson's disease. As she progressively lost the ability to continue domestic duties, to his children's amazement, he progressively assumed them. Toward the end of her life, he was the main one providing the near total care she needed. They were married for 66 years. Jesus was known as a strong, steady, confident but unpretentious man. He was consistently loyal to his family and he will be missed. Cochran Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. To sign the online guestbook, go to cochranfh.com.

ISRAEL
LIVINGSTON -- Barbara June Israel died on Sept. 26, 2016. She was preceded in death by her mother, Edna; her siblings, Claude, Wade and Betty; both of her sons-in-law, Ray and James; her daughter-in-law, Arnita; her grandson, Scotty and her daughter, Donna, who family members say no doubt met her with a broom and duster in hand, smelling like bleach and smiling knowing she had her parents mansion perfect for their arrival. Barbara was born on Sept. 30, 1938 and spent the next 77-plus years making this world brighter, with not just a good heart, but with the word of God. In her long life she had two great loves, God and family (though family members say a third might be argued…. never get between her and a Butterfinger). Matthew 5:14­5:16 reads: Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. That, family members say, was Barbara in a nutshell. She had no shame in her love for God. She burned brightly for all to see, never flickering or fading, shining God's light into her home, into her family's hearts and the lives of so many others. She dedicated much of her time to the church, from teaching Sunday school to leading study groups. She was known as someone who would give you anything you needed, even if it would leave her without, and who was a kind-hearted, giving and forgiving child of God. Barbara was dedicated to her family just as strongly as she was to God. She loved her husband, JT, with a great joy in her heart, but she loved her children even more…. all of them, not just the ones she gave life. She raised not only her children, "Gator," Donna and Kandy, but went on to raise two of her grandchildren, Nigel and Jaimie, and lent her support and love in the raising of three other grandchildren, Barbi, Kaci and Natoshia. She even went a step further as she raised her great-grandson, Jonathan, for many years. She held her other grandchildren, Scotty, Josh, Jennifer and Louis in her heart and rejoiced at each moment spent with them. She often mourned the moments she missed with her son, Danny, and her granddaughter, Deborah. She leaved behind three children, nine grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren, two great-great-grandchildren, one daughter-in-law and many other extended family members and friends. Her burial took place on Sept. 30, 2016 at Klein Memorial Park in Decker Prairie. A celebration of life memorial service in Livingston will be held in the near future, details of which will appear in the classifieds. The family asks that those moved to offer a donation or flowers donate to your church and, should you not have a church, then a shelter, for Barbara wanted little for herself and much for those in need.

LUNA
LIVINGSTON -- Jesus Maria Luna was born on Nov. 28, 1922 in Lemitar, N.M. and raised nearby in Socorro, a small town south of Albuquerque. He was born to parents, Julian Luna and Barbarita (Gonzales) Luna and died on Sept. 20, 2016 in Livingston. He is preceded in death by his wife, Corine Sanchez Luna. Mr. Luna is survived by his son, Dr. Raymond Luna and wife Grace of Livingston; daughters, Alice Luna Massey and husband Pat of Albuquerque, N.M., Mary Ann Luers and husband Keith of Colorado Springs, Colo., Priscilla Hurley and husband Mike of Denver, Colo. and Julie Luna and Miguel Trujillo of Albuquerque, N.M.; grandchildren, Jeff Luna and wife Vien, Ann Winston and husband Sean, Megan Massey, Brian Massey, Audra Massey, Jonathan Luers, Nathan Luers and wife Lydia, and Jessica Luers; great-grandchildren, Sean Lee Winston and Abigail Luers; and numerous other relatives and friends. His family was quite poor, and he had to work throughout his early life to help with family income. He was always good at math and science and, after high school, he enrolled in the University of New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology. College was interrupted by service in the Air Force as a navigator/bombardier stationed in England and flying missions over Germany in a B-17 bomber. As with many men who served in World War II, until he enlisted, he had never ventured far from his hometown. His experiences in the service were the source of many of his most vivid memories and stories. After the war he returned to college, getting a degree in metallurgical engineering. He also courted and married Corine Sanchez. They moved to Albuquerque where he worked at Sandia National Laboratories until he retired at 65. Jesus and Corine had five children. They ran the household, as was the norm at that time, with Jesus holding a steady job, doing the heavy house repairs and yard work and Corine doing everything else. In 1983 Corine became ill with cancer and later Parkinson's disease. As she progressively lost the ability to continue domestic duties, to his children's amazement, he progressively assumed them. Toward the end of her life, he was the main one providing the near total care she needed. They were married for 66 years. Jesus was known as a strong, steady, confident but unpretentious man. He was consistently loyal to his family and he will be missed. Cochran Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. To sign the online guestbook, go to cochranfh.com.

ISRAEL
LIVINGSTON -- Barbara June Israel died on Sept. 26, 2016. She was preceded in death by her mother, Edna; her siblings, Claude, Wade and Betty; both of her sons-in-law, Ray and James; her daughter-in-law, Arnita; her grandson, Scotty and her daughter, Donna, who family members say no doubt met her with a broom and duster in hand, smelling like bleach and smiling knowing she had her parents mansion perfect for their arrival. Barbara was born on Sept. 30, 1938 and spent the next 77-plus years making this world brighter, with not just a good heart, but with the word of God. In her long life she had two great loves, God and family (though family members say a third might be argued…. never get between her and a Butterfinger). Matthew 5:14­5:16 reads: Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. That, family members say, was Barbara in a nutshell. She had no shame in her love for God. She burned brightly for all to see, never flickering or fading, shining God's light into her home, into her family's hearts and the lives of so many others. She dedicated much of her time to the church, from teaching Sunday school to leading study groups. She was known as someone who would give you anything you needed, even if it would leave her without, and who was a kind-hearted, giving and forgiving child of God. Barbara was dedicated to her family just as strongly as she was to God. She loved her husband, JT, with a great joy in her heart, but she loved her children even more…. all of them, not just the ones she gave life. She raised not only her children, "Gator," Donna and Kandy, but went on to raise two of her grandchildren, Nigel and Jaimie, and lent her support and love in the raising of three other grandchildren, Barbi, Kaci and Natoshia. She even went a step further as she raised her great-grandson, Jonathan, for many years. She held her other grandchildren, Scotty, Josh, Jennifer and Louis in her heart and rejoiced at each moment spent with them. She often mourned the moments she missed with her son, Danny, and her granddaughter, Deborah. She leaved behind three children, nine grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren, two great-great-grandchildren, one daughter-in-law and many other extended family members and friends. Her burial took place on Sept. 30, 2016 at Klein Memorial Park in Decker Prairie. A celebration of life memorial service in Livingston will be held in the near future, details of which will appear in the classifieds. The family asks that those moved to offer a donation or flowers donate to your church and, should you not have a church, then a shelter, for Barbara wanted little for herself and much for those in need.

HUGHES
ONALASKA -- Leslie Harold "Buck" Hughes died peacefully on Thursday, June 23, 2016, at his log cabin in Hankamer. Friends and family say Buck had become increasingly weary this past year and longed to be reunited with his loving bride, Bettie Jo. Buck was born in a cotton shack in Childress County near the Collingsworth County line, to Johnny Barlow Hughes and Nora Dukes. At the age of 17 Buck joined the Navy to serve his country during World War II. He served in the Pacific aboard the USS Montrose APA 212 from December 1943 to May 1946. His ship took part in "Operation Iceberg" in 1945 and when their ship secured Menna-Shima Island on April 15th, 1945, Buck was part of the amphibious landing crew, as he had to send signal messages back to the ship. Upon returning from the war Buck pursued and captured the heart of Bettie Jo Caruthers. They were married on April 12, 1947 in Fort Worth. Their time together spanned nearly 50 years. In 1953 Buck went to work for Gulf Oil Company in Eunice, N.M. as a process operator. He transferred to the Baytown plant in 1963. He quickly advanced to "A" Operator and was a shift supervisor for many years. Gulf Oil was eventually bought out by Chevron Oil Company and Buck retired from there in 1983 after a 30-year career. After retirement Buck and Bettie moved to Yaupon Cove in Onalaska where he resided until moving to Hankamer in 2009. Buck leaves a legacy for his sons, having mirrored such a life of integrity for his boys, teaching them by example how to be "men of honor." He was known as someone who was honest to a fault and his word was as binding as a signed affidavit. He taught them by example how to love their wives and provide for their families, even if it took three jobs to do it. He was always quick with a smile, never met a stranger, always a gentleman, and could have you laughing in short order with his quick-witted responses. The evening before he died his nurse, Meagan, hugged him and told him she was sorry for making him uncomfortable. He gave her a quick smirk and said, "You sure don't look sorry." He was known for making light of even a bad situation, forever keeping a positive outlook. Buck is predeceased by his parents; brothers, Joe Hughes and Bill Hughes; wife, Bettie Jo Hughes and son, Phil Hughes. He is survived by his brother, Richard Hughes (Deloria) of Cross Plains; sister, Sherrie Lynn Templeton (Terry) of Granbury; son, Gary Hughes, (Georgie) of Livingston; son, Dwain "Buddy" Hughes, (Sherry) of Wallisville; son, Max Hughes, (Marie) of Hankamer; eight grandsons; seven granddaughters; 36 great-grandchildren; 10 great-great-grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews, and his faithful Boston Bulldog of 17 years, Boots.

ACUFF
LIVINGSTON -- Funeral services for Mary Ola Acuff, 92, of Bay City were held at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 4, 2016, in the Cochran Funeral Home Chapel in Livingston, with the Rev. Harold Isaacs officiating. Interment followed in Peebles Cemetery in Livingston. On July 31, 1923 in Myrtlewood, Ala., a feisty young child who was to become known as Mary Ola Merrell blessed the home of William Henderson Merrell and Daisy Carter Merrell. On Monday, May 30, 2016, that young child who had seen almost 93 years of life entered into her eternal rest. In the years after she moved from Alabama to Texas with her family, they resided in various communities in Polk County, including East Tempe, Kickapoo, Onalaska, Lamont and Goodrich. She attended schools in Goodrich and Livingston. In 1940 she met and married Lee Douglas Acuff and they settled near Goodrich and built their home which they shared until his death in 1982. To this union were born three children, Norman Lee "Dutch," William Lamar "Bill or Billy" and Brenda Kay. Mrs. Acuff served as a homemaker for many years and later worked at Holiday Grocery and Market in Goodrich and then in retail for Howard's and then Walmart where she became a department manager. As a member of First Baptist Church in Goodrich for many years she served as a Sunday school teacher and Vacation Bible School teacher. When pot lucks were being held at the church, people eagerly looked for her pot of chicken and dumplings and her pies. They were always a hit. In addition to her involvement in the church, Mrs. Acuff was very active in her children's school lives, serving as room mother and assisting with various projects or chaperoning during contests. She was an integral part of the FFA supporters and a leader in the local 4-H Chapter. During times of illness or need, family members and friends within the community could count on Mrs. Acuff to lend a helping hand. Sitting with an ill family member or friend in the hospital or in their home was often one of her support activities. When the church needed food for an occasion, she was always one to step up and do more than her share. As her friends became shut-ins and needed assistance, she could be found doing their grocery shopping or transporting them to medical appointments. As their children grew up and started their families, Mr. and Mrs. Acuff enjoyed taking their grandchildren on vacations. As her grandchildren gathered at her bedside during her final illness, they enjoyed sharing with her their favorite memories from her home -- always an abundance of various treats, Easter and the egg hunts, and the sumptuous meals that she filled the dining table with and many more. After Mrs. Acuff lost her husband in a work accident in 1982, she continued to live in the family home that they had built together in 1940-41 and continued to work at Walmart. After retiring from her position there, she remained in the family home until she moved to Arlington to live with her daughter and son-in-law for a brief period. From there she moved to Bay City, where she lived for the remainder of her life. She proudly informed people that she did not live with her son and his wife but rather lived in an independent living apartment in a senior complex just seven minutes from Bill and Judy. She was able to satisfy her love for her cats in her apartment because she was allowed to have pets. The only thing she had to be reminded about where her cats were concerned was that they were not her children as she frequently wanted to tell people. During her residency at The Legacy she became quite adept at bingo and accumulated a supply of Legacy bucks to use for shopping at the Legacy Country Store once a month. Mrs. Acuff was predeceased by her grandfather, C.R. "Papa" Carter; her parents, the Rev. W.H. and Mrs. Daisy Merrell; her sister, Patsy Ruth Sheffield and her husband S.C. "Goose" Sheffield; her sister, Margaret Louise Page; her older son, Norman Lee "Dutch" Acuff and her son-in-law, Thomas Lee Hamm. She is survived by her brother-in-law, Hubert Page; her daughter, Brenda Kay Acuff Hamm; her son and daughter-in-law, William Lamar "Bill" Acuff and Judy; grandchildren, Quincy MacDonald and her husband Fred, Toby Hamm and his wife Kasi, Michael Eugene Acuff, Timothy Lamar Acuff and wife Fawn, William Shirl Acuff, Bryan Keith Acuff and his wife Teresa, April Sanders and her husband Elliot, Brett Carter Acuff and his wife Ann, and Brent Lamar Acuff and his wife Tammie; great-grandchildren, Blayne, Brylie, Dustin, Dalton, Dakota, Emmanuel, Elijah, Elisha (Baby Girl), Bailey, Lillian, Jenny, Keisha, Colby, Trinity and Kyndall and two great-great-grandchildren. Her nieces and nephews and their families were always important to her. They include Sandra Jones, John Sheffield, Joanie Knebel, Larry Page and Terry Page. She is also survived by one cousin, Glenda Rose Carter; dear longtime friends, Pete and Muriel Nelson; and friends who visited, especially after she relocated to Bay City, including Babe Ray Atchley and Joe Henry Smith. Pallbearers included Fred MacDonald, Toby Hamm, Elliot Sanders, Bryan Keith Acuff, Brent Acuff and Brett Acuff. Honorary pallbearer was Pete Nelson.

COLEMAN
LIVINGSTON – Patricia Ann Coleman, 1941-2016, was known as a brilliant English major who loved the water. As a young woman, she "skiffed" the winds and waters of the Chester River. Sailing and teaching others the craft kept her near her Chestertown, Md. home where she attended Washington College. As an adult she was the footprint to the changing tides in the mid to late twentieth century. Patricia loved to travel. A young flight attendant, she walked the wall of China, haunted the Tower of London, and enjoyed world's capital cities on their many continents. She joined the landmark lawsuit against United Airlines that eventually awarded female flight attendants the right to work in the air past marriage, past young age, and past having children. After 9/11, Patricia volunteered and flew with the grieving relatives of the passengers of Flight 93. She held her own sorrow as was her way, and she helped others as she pri-vately grieved for the crew of Flight 93. These were her friends. Flight 93 was her own working flight, and route. These friends who were lost had been on that day's schedule… and, she was not. During the UA lawsuit Pat worked for Little Brown Publishing as a book agent, but Southern Literary was her child. A fledgling writer's agency, it fostered Houston's local talent, including Nancy Geyer, Jay Brandon, Michael Ashley, and others. Southern Literary collected writers, and Patricia held great soirees. The creative energies and eclectic mixes of personalities always guaranteed a joyous evening of sharp conversation, large dinners, and plenty of wine. Together with her husband Michael F. Doran, they nurtured Houston's new and emerging writers until her husband died in 2006. She retired a few years later, devoting herself to the care of her mother after her father's death and in her mother's final years. She was known as a gentle soul, who never met a stranger. Her giving empathy allowed her to make a difference in the communities that she called home. Her many friends say they will miss her and her unique, whimsical attitude that always brought a smile. Pat was born Nov. 11, 1941 in Elkton, Md. She graduated from Chestertown High School in 1959, Washington College in 1963, and found the position she desired – a flight attendant with United Airlines. Traveling the world, she called several places home including Canada, Africa, and Houston finally settling in a cottage on a lake in Goodrich, close to the water she loved and surrounded by friends who loved her. Patricia is predeceased by her husband, Michael Frank Doran and her parents, Donald Sr. and Elizabeth Coleman. She is survived by brothers, Donald Jr. and wife Maggie Coleman of Maryland, and Robert and wife Dawn Coleman of Maryland; stepson, Matthew and wife Jessi Doran of Virginia; grandson, Kaiden Doran; nephews Donald B. Coleman III and R. Douglas Coleman and niece, Laura E. Coleman. Patricia will be buried in Chestertown, Md. near the parents she adored. Local services are pending. Memorials may be directed to your charity of choice. Cochran Funeral Home, Livingston, is in charge of local arrangements.

CLARKE
CORRIGAN -- Graveside services for Lawana Clarke, 88, of Lufkin were held Monday, April 11, 2016, in Union Springs Cemetery in Corrigan, with Pastor Pat Jones officiating. Interment followed in Union Springs Cemetery in Corrigan. Lawana Chandler Clarke (Swann, Smith) was born May 24, 1927, to James Blackburn "Blackie" and Florence Aydelotte Chandler, in the small community of Pluck, just outside of Corrigan. She died on Friday, April 8, 2016, in The Joseph House in Lufkin. In 1946 Lawana married James C. "Jim" Swann Jr. To this union was born a son, James Reagan Swann. As life was just beginning for this young couple, Jim died the following year as a result of an industrial accident. She remained single for the next 38 years until marrying "secret high school sweetheart" Fred Smith in 1985. She quickly became his fishing and gardening companion. They enjoyed many new adventures together. At Fred's death in 1989, she once again found herself single. In 1995, through the encouragement and support of mutual life-long friends, Lawana and Dale Clarke became a couple; marrying in 1995. She enjoyed taking short trips with Dale, until a long-term illness limited his outings -- eventually taking his life in 2003. This fiercely independent woman was devoted mother and father, as well as sole provider for Reagan. Lawana worked as a bookkeeper for Edens-Birch Lumber Company in Corrigan approximately 20 years before moving to Nacogdoches in 1964. She was employed by Gound Chevrolet for many years, honing her accounting skills as technology advanced from manual calculations to computerization, retiring in 1985. She also "kept books" for numerous others while putting herself through college; earning a bachelor's degree in business in the early 1970s. She also worked for Mike Perry Motor Company in the early 90s. Never one to be idle, Lawana enjoyed crafts of all sorts, especially crocheting and working in her yard year-round. She loved to watch things grow and had quite a green thumb; squirrels being her only challenge, particularly with her figs and pecans. She loved to bake sweets and equally enjoyed eating them. Although extremely private and shying from the lime-light of traditional social circles, she remained close with a small group of her dearest Corrigan High schoolmates.

His family was a great love in his life. He was very proud of each one and always looked forward to seeing them. He is also survived by many special nieces and nephews and extended family that he loved very much. Rastus had two brothers, Eugene Maze (deceased) and wife Corine Maze, and J. C. Maze (deceased) and wife Florence Maze; nephew, Jay Maze; niece, Sherry Maze Thomas; nephew, Tony Carroll and niece, Sabrina Jo Camp. Special friends include Sherry Williams, Pat and Bob Hasselbach, Jerry and Mona Marsh, Jim and Bettie Hobson, Edna Hennington Tomme, Becky Kennedy, Kathy Kennedy Lawson and Kristy Kennedy Black: and special person, Pamela Jo Maze. Rastus and Delores were married on July 5, 1956, at young ages by special pastor of Magnolia Hill Baptist Church, Edgar Pat Long. Rastus was ordained a deacon in his church at a young age as they raised their sons in church at Magnolia Hill Baptist Church. In 1968, they moved their family to Central Baptist Church where he served as a deacon until his health forced him to become a deacon emeritus. Rastus served as deacon chairman three years at Central during the time his good friend and Pastor Bill Kennedy passed and Dr. Bill Skaar was called as pastor of Central. He worked in the youth department and the senior adult department and drove the church bus for youth and adult trips. His life before he lost his health was serving the Lord at Central. Rastus was a hard worker all his life until he became disabled in 2008. His first job was at age 11 at Perry Brothers 5 and 10 store in Livingston, working for CL King. Later, he worked for June Marsh in his hardware store and at his farm, working cows and hay. He was a star center on the Lions basketball team, went to school at Livingston High School and worked all through his school years. After Rastus and Delores married, they moved to Baytown and he delivered mail for the Post Office in Baytown. Later, he worked for Pittsburgh Paint and Glass in Houston, first as a salesman and later as a store manager. In 1965, the family moved back to Livingston and built the family house they still live in on Jack Nettles Road. Jerry and Greg were 9 and 6 years old then. Rastus worked with the Rodeo Association in Livingston and the boys rode horses in play days and rodeos. Rastus was recognized a few years ago as one of the outstanding people who helped build and develop the Polk County Youth Rodeo Association. Rastus also helped to build the Pasadena Youth Riding Club in Pasadena during a period that he ran a Pitts-burgh Paint/Glass store in Pasadena. Jerry and Greg rode horses in the club. When they built their house, city water was not available to them. Rastus investigated how to start a community water system, went door to door and got people to sign up to start a water system. He was successful in getting the Providence Water Supply System started, the first such water system in Polk County, in the 60s. In 1968, he joined in partnership to own a hardware store, M&M Sales Center, in Livingston. After that, he formed his own painting business that grew into his 35-year successful business, M&M Pipeline Maintenance Inc. He owned and managed this business for about 35 years. After falling on the pipeline in 2008 and breaking his right leg, he sold his business in 1969 and retired due to health issues. In the 60s, Rastus was a dedicated member of the Livingston Volunteer Fire Department. He served as an officer and faithful member. He was also on the men's pumper team and Delores was on the women's pumper team, at a time when the fire department was very successful in pumper competition and B.R. Haynes was chief. Delores often said that "Rastus deserves a special star in his crown in Heaven." In 1980, Delores quit her job at First National Bank and began college at Sam Houston University, at the same time the boys were attending college also. Rastus took on the full responsibility of supporting the family and four college students. This says it all about Rastus' love for family. He worked hard, God provided, and everyone graduated with a degree. Rastus loved Delores and the family, Central Baptist Church, Joy Sunday School Class, his farm at Segno and the hunting lease, having cows at the farm, flying, fishing, hunting, R.V.ing with family, old fashioned gospel music, his employees, watching basketball and football and his home. He loved life and having fun teasing and joking with others. He was known as a giving person who loved giving and helping others. Pallbearers were Harvey G. Jones, Jim Hobson, Daniel B.

She eventually moved to Livingston with her husband and started a family there. After having two sons, she started to attend school functions, getting involved with community events, as well as the local Girl Scout troops. Often you could find her outside selling cookies to the town, with both her boys in tow. As her sons both got older she stepped back from community events, focusing upon them as well as her husband. She became more of a stay-at-home mother then. However, through her entire life, she never lost contact with the people. She was always there to lend an ear and help out when she could. As both her sons began to have grandchildren she became even more of a loving figure, watching over them, helping them, and raising the next generation. Even as she got older she was always willing to listen, to give her opinion, to tell you just how she saw it. Family and friends say she touched everyone's life in one way or another and will not ever be for-gotten. Anne is survived by her husband of 58 years, Loren Everett Clary Sr.; her loving son, Anthony Jason Clary Sr.; seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Catherine and her family moved to Houston in 1954. While there, they were blessed with three lovely daughters. In 1978, they purchased property in Carlisle and spent numerous weekends there. In 1990, Catherine and Willie retired to Carlisle. Catherine was a full-time wife, mother, grandmother, great-grand and great-great-grandmother. Family and friends say a smile would light up her face when any of her family came to visit and that everyone, including the neighborhood children, called her Nanny. She never missed a grandchild's event -- dance recitals, volleyball or baseball games with no regard as to how far she had to travel. Kolin Snider, 13 months old, was her great-great-grandson that she had to see. She went to King-wood at least weekly to get a baby fix. She was known for her Nanny breakfast; one of those large breakfasts that is always more than you can eat, but had to have a taste of everything. Everyone's favorite was her chocolate gravy. Some of the grandchildren would call ahead and ask for chocolate gravy for lunch or dinner -- it didn't matter, it was that good. With her love for children, Catherine worked in the church nursery and vacation bible school. She also helped with fundraising at 356 VFD, baking cakes and pies for auction or to feed the workers.

Following the war, he married Eloise (Evans) Tompkins, his devoted wife, friend, and business partner. A shrewd and tireless worker, Eugene used his knowledge of engineering to create and grow a successful tugboat business in Port Bolivar. Upon retiring, he returned to the region of his birth, settling in Livingston, where he lived until his death. Eugene was active in politics, working for Democratic campaigns until the Kennedy administration drove him to the Republican Party, which he supported in myriad ways until failing health forced him to bow out. Like many of his generation, Eugene took tremendous pride in raising his children and theirs to places he had been unable to aspire to. He was a lifelong lover of learning, doggedly returning to high school following his war service to earn his diploma, and ensuring that all of his children were able to attend college. His family will remember him as a deeply principled man. Cochran Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements. To sign the online guestbook, go to cochranfh.com.

SMITH
LIVINGSTON – Sidney Ross Smith, 90, of Livingston died on Thursday, Jan. 14, 2016. He was known to family and friends as a kind and generous spirit, throughout his life, who dearly loved the Lord. He was born on Sept. 22, 1925 in Livingston, to Samuel Ross Smith and Thelma Faye Jackson. He attended Livingston public schools and, at the age of 17 years, he graduated from Livingston High School in the Class of 1942. He attended Kemper Military Academy for one year. World War II was in full force and all his Livingston friends had joined a military service and he left for the war. He felt he should do his duty for his country and did not return to Kemper. He joined the U.S. Navy and served from 1944-46. He met the love of his life while in public school by the name of Edythe Ann Pratt and they were a steady couple in high school. Upon his return from the war he entered the University of Texas and obtained a degree in accounting and received his certification as a CPA. He married Miss Pratt on June 1, 1947. He worked for the Internal Revenue Service for several years before returning to Livingston. He then established an accounting firm and also launched several other businesses, including a retail department store which he owned and operated for over 20 years. Sidney became a civic leader and was president of the Livingston Lions Club and president of the Polk County Chamber of Commerce. From these organizations he received the Melvin Jones Fellow Award from the Lions Club and the Award of Special Merit from the Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors for his outstanding work. He was also selected as "Polk Countian of the Year" by the Polk County Chamber of Commerce. He served as a scoutmaster for several years in the Boy Scouts of America. He was elected by the citizens of Livingston to be a city alderman and served for eight years. During this time he also served on the State Board of Public Accounting and was the founder/president of the Livingston Savings & Loan Association. Sidney had a great love for music, which he inherited from his mother who was a noted pianist. He was a member of the Livingston High School Band in his youth and joined the Livingston Community Band. He was also a strong supporter and contributor in the Livingston Community Concert Association. He gave a Green & White Scholarship each year for a Livingston High School graduate and was honored in 2006 by being named an Outstanding Livingston Graduate from the Class of 1942. He was also a real estate developer around Lake Livingston and owned the subdivisions of Oak Terrace and Lake Livingston Estates. Sidney became the president and chairman of the board of the Livingston Telephone Company. To the very end he was constantly involved in business, political, educational and civic matters in Livingston. He advanced his efforts to improve the community by forming a family charitable foundation. Some of the benefits from the foundation were the large community clock in front of city hall, the courthouse gazebo on the courthouse square, and furnishing a room in the Memorial Medical Center hospital. He also made a sizeable contribution to the Polk County Higher Education Foundation for a new junior college that was built. These are only a few of the many charitable gifts that the Smith family has given to Livingston and Polk County. He was a deacon and trustee of Central Baptist Church and gave to the church the children's hand bells, a three manual pipe organ, and a grand piano in memory of his mother for all the members' enjoyment. He always used his time, energy, talent and financial means to enhance the lives of others in his family, church, businesses, rather than embellish his own. He was a man of impeccable character who has touched the lives of many. A natural leader in many facets of his life, he always treated all people from every walk of life with dignity and respect. He was a notable man of Livingston and Polk County. Sidney was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Edythe Ann and his parents.

BURCHFIELD
LIVINGSTON -- Funeral services for Clinton Doyle Burchfield, 89, of Livingston were held Monday, Dec. 28, 2015, in the Cochran Funeral Home Chapel in Livingston, with Bro. Harold Isaacs officiating. Military honors were provided by VFW Post 8568. Interment followed in Union Springs Cemetery in Corrigan. Mr. Burchfield died peacefully with his family by his side on Dec. 24, 2015. He was born on April 13, 1926 in Livingston, to Mitchell and Velma Burchfield. Clinton grew up and went to school in Livingston, and joined the Army in November of 1945. In the Army, he was a par-atrooper and member of the 187th Glider Infantry. After training, he was sent overseas and was part of the Army of Occupation (Japan). After seven months in Japan and achieving the rank of corporal, he returned to Texas and was dis-charged at Fort Sam Houston. Soon after returning to Livingston, he went to barber school and met his wife, Alma Smith of Goodrich. In the fall of 1949 he headed south to find a place to start his barber business. In September of 1949 they settled in Bay City. Clinton cut hair in Bay City longer than anyone else -- over 40 years. He lived in Bay City for close to 65 years. Clinton was an avid fisherman and hunter. While cutting hair he often told his customers that he was the "Best Fisherman in the County." Following in his brothers', Talmadge and Jesse Coleman's, footsteps, Clinton earned his private pilot's license while in Bay City. He owned and flew his own plane, a Piper Clipper. Throughout the 60's and early 70's he would often fly his wife and daughter to Livingston for visits with his family. In 1984, his first grandson, Matthew, was born, followed by Michael in 1987. Clinton could now stop asking his daughter if he would have to "buy himself a grandchild." Matthew and Michael became the center of his life. He taught them how to hunt and fish almost as good as himself. In 1994, Clinton was diagnosed with a heart condition that caused him to retire from the haircutting business. In 1995, Clinton lost his wife, Alma, and he spent the next 20 years splitting his time between Bay City and Livingston with many visits to New York to see his grandchildren. During his retirement, Clinton was lucky to have many special people in his life. Two of the most important, were Jessie Long and Kay Long Campbell.

HUDSON
HOUSTON -- Billy Ray "Bill" Hudson died on Nov. 28, 2015, one day before his 81st birthday. The youngest child of Addie and Elias Hudson, he was born in Trinity on Nov. 29, 1934. Bill proudly served in the United States Army National Guard for seven years, including two years of active duty. He was honorably discharged in 1960 and that same year married the love of his life, Barbara Safford, to whom he was devoted for 55 years. Bro. Roy E. Ladd officiated the wedding ceremony at Baptist Temple Church in Houston. Bill never met a stranger and could often be heard whistling a cheerful tune. He built a successful sales career with Kroger where he worked until his retirement in 1976. Eager to continue working, he joined food wholesale company Fleming, where he was employed for 10 years. Faith and family came first for Bill. He was a devoted member of Baptist Temple where he was baptized in 1976, served as a deacon and sang in the choir with Barbara. After retirement, he became a member and a deacon of Dorcas Wills Memorial Baptist Church in Trinity. Bill did not fear death because he knew he would have eternal life with Jesus Christ. One of his favorite scriptures, John 10:27-29, says, "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father's hand." Family and friends say Bill was loved by all who knew him for his humor, heart and gentle ways. He could always tell a good joke. He was known as a loving and devoted husband, father, brother and uncle. Bill cherished time with his family, especially outside in God's creation where he loved to camp, fish, hunt and play golf.
