Her last several years had been a struggle with pain, so she is finally at peace. Family and friends say her personal struggles are a testament to her spirit that she always managed to meet her troubles with wit, humor, and a constant anticipation for the fun in life. She is remembered for her beautiful red hair and her elegance, always turned out in perfect hair, make-up, clothes, and jewelry, even though in later years she was bent with injury. Her joys were going to Edna's beauty shop, to see Brenda at Steel Magnolias Beauty Shop, going out to eat and to visit Jack and the many patrons of Lone Star Charlies, shopping, hearing her husband David sing and play guitar, visiting and taking gifts to friends, being with family, and caring for her little lapdogs, Chip and Buddy. She especially loved the wonderful officers at the Livingston Police Department. She always had a joke or funny story to share, and those who knew her have said that with Gay, there was never a dull moment. Gay was born on Feb. 14, 1942 in Goodrich, to Jesse and Dorothy Emanuel, and graduated school there. Her senior year, she won state in typing and shorthand, and began her first career as secretary at Houston Intercontinental Airport. She married Richard David Warren on June 7, 1961, and had two children, David Randall and Rebecca Allison. After the children were older, Gay studied and became a registered nurse. Gay and David lived in various cities, including Tyler and Galveston, but eventually came back to Livingston, where they enjoyed a host of friends and family. For the past few years, they lived in a beautiful wooded setting in Navasota, under the loving care of their daughter Rebecca and son-in-law Dale Lewis. Gay leaves behind her husband, David Warren, who for 57 years was not only a companion during the good times, but also her constant caregiver; a son, David Randall Warren; daughter, Rebecca Allison Warren-Lewis and son-in-law Dale Lewis; grandchildren Nicholas Warren and wife Amanda, Mason Warren, Cristina Warren Newell and husband Cody, Chastity Warren and Lydia Jane Seeley; stepchildren, Larry Warren (wife Lynn) and Debbie Massey (husband Dwayne Massey); stepgrandchildren, Kimberly Massey Walters and Mindy Massey Bently; siblings, Jerilynn Emanuel Lord (children Mike Marsh and Theresa Marsh Harris), Gary Emanuel (children Jade Emanuel and Amber Emanuel Pring), and Sherrell Emanuel Huff (husband Bruce); and many other loving relatives and friends.

Blankenship; half-sister, Opal Blankenship Ohnert; sister, Ruth Wallace; and her parents, Frank and Ida Mae Blankenship. Fran was a loving mother to her two stepchildren, ages 3 and 4 when she married their father at age 17. She deeply regretted having to leave them after seven years when the marriage ended. However, she did reconnect with them many years later, and had an especially warm relationship with Adalene. She moved to Texas for a fresh start with her young children from that marriage, Terry and Cheryl. There she met and married a good man, Don Goettee, who welcomed her children as his own. Fran was a bookkeeper for many years with various companies, a great cook, and a caring friend. She adored her children, thinking them perfect. Even though she worked full time while her children were younger, she always made time to sew her family's clothes, lend a helping hand to those in need, and make yummy oatmeal cookies, peanut brittle, cakes, and pies, among other specialties to share with family and friends. Drop-in guests were always warmly welcomed no matter the time and invited to share a meal or cup of coffee. She and Don made a good team, living in the Houston area for many years, then Muskogee, Okla. before making their way to the Livingston area. After they both retired, they bought and sold houses, remodeling them, before moving on to the next project. They were both energetic and gregarious, staying busy whether they were traveling with their Good Sam's group, getting together with family and friends to play dominoes and cards, or assisting others with projects when they needed help. Fran adored her grandchildren, informing them she was to be called, "Grandmother." She was very involved in their upbringing, picking them up in San Antonio to spend summers with her and Grandpa. They had tea parties, read poetry, and shared her love of music, especially classical. The great-grandchildren called her "GG" to her delight. Her family and friends say they are comforted knowing she has gone to a better place. The family requests in lieu of food, plants, or flowers, those who wish may donate to their favorite charity or the Livingston SPCA. Cochran Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
