Mammie Lou Betterton Carter (St Flying Tigers)

Mammie Lou Betterton Carter

May 29, 1932 - July 7, 2019

Mammie Lou Carter

San Angelo - Mamie Lou (Betterton) Carter, 87, went to be with her sovereign Lord and Savior on Sunday July 7, 2019. "Mimi" as her 3 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild knew her by, was born May 29, 1932 in Tuscola, Texas to Felix Bailey and Bertha Maud Betterton. She was a loving wife to Frank N. "Doc" Carter for 57 years who preceded her in death in 2017. She is survived by her 2 children, William A. Carter II and his wife Jessica, Cristal Kurtz and her husband Glenn, 3 grandchildren Lane Carter and his wife Paige, Ethan Carter and Emma Carter, and her great-grandson Jackson Carter.

Mamie and Doc became members of First Baptist Church in San Angelo in 1963 where she remained a member for 56 faithful years. They eloped on December 23, 1960 and were the perfect loving couple. Mimi worked at the court house, at Central high School and retired from Angelo State University after 25+ years working as the Career and Guidance office coordinator where she touched the lives of numerous students seeking their new careers.

Miss Ladybug Momma, as we sometimes called her, was known for her easy laugh, big smiling green eyes, casseroles, southern hospitality with a splash of sass, shopping for a new dress with matching shoes and purse, and playing hymns on the piano. She taught Sunday School to 3 and 4 year olds, started prayer chains, and led the bereavement committee coordinating meals for many years. We have treasured memories of cross country family vacations to California and Washington, DC where we experienced America from sea to shining sea and numerous National Parks and historical sites.

Momma was a vivacious lady of strength, faith, and love. She was the rock and the balm; tender but determined, gentle but resolute in her convictions; quiet but spirited; and very protective of her family. She was our shield and would rush to comfort us and was the first to savor in our happiness.

We are rejoicing at her homecoming and praise God for mom's restored mind and body in heaven and that she is reunited with our dad. The family requests in lieu of flowers donations be made to the First Baptist Church of San Angelo or the Alzheimer's Association at

In her final years she was cared for by the loving staff of Visiting Angels Candelaria, Margaret, Diane and Linda among others and by Kindred Hospice of San Angelo.

Visitation will be at Johnson's Funeral Home on Wednesday, July 10th from 6-8pm. Funeral services will be at 10 am, Thursday, July 11, 2019 at First Baptist Church with Pastors Bill Gillum, Robert Dillard, and Kevin Ray officiating.

Obituary of Pete Prentice

Melvin "Pete" Prentice, 86, of Buffalo Gap, TX passed away on Saturday, June 29, 2019.  Pete had one of the biggest hearts around and would do anything for anybody, especially for his loving wife Velma.  Born to Bradley and Gladys Prentice on January 25, 1933 in Fort Sumner, New Mexico, Pete was the youngest of his siblings and always took care of everyone around him.

Pete served in the U.S. Army until December of 1954 when he was honorably discharged from the service.  After returning from the War he married Velma Inez Turner, also of Buffalo Gap, on December 23, 1954.  Pete and Velma had two children, Larry Dale and Michael Ross "Mike" Prentice, whom he loved so dearly.  He taught his boys a lot in his time, like how to work hard and always take good care of their families.  Pete worked at Central Texas Iron Works for 34 years until they closed, and then he started his own business, Pete Prentice Fabrication.  At Pete Prentice Fabrication the motto was, "if it's difficult it's done reasonable, if it's impossible it's expensive.”  He ran his business until he retired in 1999.  He then spent his days fishing with his friends and welding everything in Buffalo Gap.  All of his work is still standing all around Buffalo Gap.  His family and friends all agree that he was comical as hell.  He was a fantastic artist and could cook the best beer battered onion rings, "Pete's way.”  He'd use half a can of beer and save the other half for himself, along with "Papaw's Clear Pepsi."

Pete was preceded in death by both parents and multiple brothers and sisters. He is survived by his loving wife Velma, his sister, Marilyn, both sons,  Larry and wife Leslie of Tuscola, Mike and Regina also of Tuscola, grandchildren Lanny, Laressa, Kayla, Briar, Maycen, and London, and several great grandchildren, along with many nieces and nephews and other various family members.


Visitation will be from 6:00 to 8:00 pm on Tuesday, July 2, 2019 at The Hamil Family Funeral Home, 6449 Buffalo Gap Road.  A graveside will be held at 10:00 am on Wednesday, July 3, 2019 at the Buffalo Gap Cemetery wit T.G. Rose officiating.



GOLDSBORO: James Calvin Rhodes, Sr. passed away on Saturday, June 29, 2019. A funeral service will be held on Wednesday, July 3, 2019 at 1:00pm in the sanctuary at Lawn Baptist Church, interment, with military honors, will follow in the Tuscola Cemetery, Mark Moore officiating, directed by Fry~Smith Funeral Home, Tuscola. A visitation with viewing for James will be on Tuesday, July 2, from 5 to 7pm at the funeral home in Tuscola.

James was born in Carnegie, Oklahoma on June 20, 1940 to Harold and Pauline (White) Rhodes. He was one of four children. James joined the Air Force after school where he served honorably until 1962.

He married Nelda Hendrix on October 6, 1962 in Tuscola. They settled in the Tuscola area, and they welcomed two children, son, James Calvin, Jr. and daughter, Vicki.

James’ career passion was welding, in which he became certified in all forms. His certifications led him to work in the boiler industry and then to Rentech Boilers, where he built and traveled the states installing boilers. James retired as a supervisor from Rentech in 2012.

James’ main hobby was working, he enjoyed it so much that it truly was never a job or difficult, but instead, enjoyment and fulfillment.  A big part of his enjoyment came from helping the younger welders grow in their profession, teaching them the skills they needed to become the best in the field.

James worked hard and loved his work, but loved his family even more, spending as much time with them as possible.  Just as with his young apprentices, James enjoyed teaching his children how to hunt and fish, the enjoyment of a good board game, and that having a big heart full of humor for your family is a wonderful thing to give.

He continued his teaching of perseverance after the tornado of 1982 when the family lost their house and possessions, from rebuilding their house to working extra to replace all that was lost.

He is survived by his wife Nelda of Goldsboro; son James Calvin Rhodes of Abilene; daughter Vicki Redwine of Abilene; grandchildren Jaden Rhodes, Jace Rhodes, Morgan Redwine, and Matt Redwine. He is also survived by his brother Butch Rhodes and wife Terry of Walla Walla, Wa; and a sister, Joyce Reeves and husband Kent of San Juan Capistrano, Ca.

He was preceded in death by his parents and a sister, Sandra Riddle.

In Lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hospice of the Big Country, 4601 Hartford St, Abilene, TX 79605.

Please keep the Hudson family in your prayers.
