Obituary

ABILENE: Meredith Danielle Paul, 30, unexpectedly passed away on Saturday, January 18, 2020 at her home in Abilene. A funeral service will be held on Thursday, January 23, 2020 at 2:00pm in the Sanctuary of Jim Ned Valley Church of Christ, close family friend, Marcy Grun is officiating, funeral services are entrusted to the care of Fry-Smith Funeral Home, Tuscola. A visitation will be held on Wednesday, January 22, from 5 to 7pm at the funeral home in Tuscola.

Meredith was born on October 22, 1989 to Shirley Paul in Abilene.  She attended school at Jim Ned through junior high, she then transferred to Dorothy Perkins Christian Academy in Tye. Meredith graduated from high school with honors in 2004. She moved to Arkansas and attended school for her CNA degree. Meredith’s caring heart and her CNA degree allowed her to fulfill a dream of caring for the elders in retirement centers throughout Arkansas and later in Abilene. It was the birth of her son, Jessie, that taught her agape love and brought her back to Tuscola.  

Meredith’s caring heart was also the source for the love of animals, any animal.  It was not uncommon for her to come home with a stray she had found. She loved to laugh and always had a smile in every photograph.  She had a passion for reading anything she could find. Meredith was a devout Elvis fan, even winning a guitar from the same store that sold Elvis his first guitar. She enjoyed the open road on a motorcycle and was her happiest when that motorcycle was a Harley Davidson.

She married Jim Cook, and they traveled the open roads of Arkansas on a Harley, stopping to camp and enjoy the beauty Arkansas had to offer. Though their marriage was short, their deep friendship lasted till her passing.

She is survived by her son, Jessie; mother, Shirley Mabes and her husband Clyde; brother, Wesley Paul and wife Autumn; maternal grandparents, Kathy and David Swaim; aunt, Betty Brown and husband Simon; great aunt and uncle, Tommy Ann and Gerald Waggoner; great aunt, Nancy Storie; cousin, Jakobi Brown. She is also survived by her nephew and niece Phoenix and Emma; and longtime friend and companion Duane Lanier.

She was preceded in death by her uncle Adam Swaim; grandfather, Wesley Odell Paul; great grandparents, Richard and Maxine Pierson, A.L. Meredith, and Marie Fuller.

Jody was born at HMC to James and Mary Ann (Dooley) Kelley on December 4, 1962. He attended and graduated from Jim Ned ISD. He went to work for R.B. Choate Plumbing not long after high school. From there he went on to establish his own plumbing company, simply Jody Kelley Plumbing. He served the smaller and outlying communities and towns that didn't have access to Abilene. He had a knack for remembering every house he worked on and those he served.

He has been involved with the RHAA and Western Heritage Classic since 1996. He has served as a member of the PRCA Rodeo Committee for the West Texas Fair and Rodeo since 1998. The committee was inducted into the Texas Rodeo Hall of Fame in 2009; an award he was so proud of. He was first affiliated with the West Texas Rehabilitation Center through their spring and fall trail rides.

Jody met his love, partner and best friend, Ms. Pete, at the Pitchfork/6666 Ranch in Guthrie, Texas on one of those Rehab trail rides in 1995. They were truly a team for the next 24 1/2 years.

Jody is survived by Ms Pete (Putman) Giles, both parents, sister April (Wes) Brooks, brother Jeff (Deadra) Kelley, son Kolby (Shawna) Kelley, and daughter Ashley (Dusty) Rhea. Grandsons Cannon and Coleman Rhea. Nieces Jaycee Brooks, Juliann Kelley, Chelsey (Densman) Heller and Brittany (Densman) Roes. And a bonus nephew in Vinnie Heller. He was "Bubba" to Avery and Cooper Roes and Hesston and Haze Heller. He is also survived by numerous Aunts, Uncles and cousins who he will be so missed by..

Honorary Pallbearers will be, Kelly Gill, Eric Pechacek, Calvin Cox, Jim Craft, Glen Pointer and John Barbee.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to Taylor County Expo Center, West Texas Rehab Center and Hospice of the Big Country. I want to thank Dr. Ezeoke and Christine, Diana, Deborah, Kristy, Tammie and Pamela of Hospice of the Big Country for the gentle, loving care they gave my Jody.

And there are no words that convey the love, prayers and strength we all received from all our friends.

"You must judge a man's greatness by how much he will be missed."

Obituary

Ricky Dale Belcher

7/3/1964 – 1/6/2020

What’s most important we remember about Ricky is that he left this world faithful to God and his Christian beliefs. Among other things, he was an intelligent, fun, loving, creative, determined, tech-savvy, goofy father, brother, son, and friend with a keen sense of humor and a laugh that could bring a smile to anyone’s face. There was a special place in his heart for helping children and those less fortunate. Above all, he loved his family, his church family and his children immensely. He will be sorely missed, but will remain in our hearts indefinitely…

Say hello to grandma, grandpa, grandmommie, aunt brenda, and uncle dewayne for us. We know you’ll only ever be 200 miles away…
