Wilma Joyce Parvin Ellinger

Wilma Joyce Parvin Ellinger

October 22, 1940 - October 23, 2020

BUFFALO GAP: Wilma Joyce (Parvin) Ellinger, age 80, went to be with her Lord Friday, October 23, 2020 in a caring and loving community at the Bronte Health and Rehab Center in Bronte. Services directed by Fry~Smith Funeral Home, Tuscola.

Wilma was born October 22, 1940 in Buffalo Gap as the oldest of three siblings to the late Jessie Lindsey and Wilma Odessa (Brown) Parvin. Wilma attended Buffalo Gap School and graduated from Wylie High School, where she enjoyed playing volleyball and basketball. She married the late Mickey Alexander Ellinger July 30, 1960 and they lived on the Ellinger Ranch for the entirety of their lives. They had one daughter, Lisa Michele (Ellinger) Gibbs, September 1, 1966. Wilma retired in 2000 from Jim Ned CISD as the Buffalo Gap Elementary librarian where she tenderly touched many lives.

Wilma dearly loved her family and friends and she expressed how family was one of the most important parts of her life. She adored spending time with family and Christmas was her favorite holiday because it was a time she could give a part of herself to loved ones. She was a giving person who would say “God intended for us to share our love not keep it to ourselves”.  Wilma served on the PTA board at Buffalo Gap School where she proudly helped sew her daughter’s basketball team’s uniforms. She also taught Sunday school for many years at Buffalo Gap Baptist Church. In later years, she truly enjoyed following her granddaughter, Mackenzie Gibbs, in all of her sports and it didn’t take long for her to become the whole team’s “Nan”. She would always have available to them her “famous” chocolate brownies. Nan definitely was their biggest fan.  Wilma loved kids as she worked with children her whole life and cared and helped those who were in need of clothes, food, or whatever the need may have been at the time.  Wilma/Nan was a servant of God by giving to and loving the children in her life.  

Wilma is survived by her daughter, Lisa Gibbs and husband Kendall of Tuscola, her grandchildren, Mackenzie Gibbs of Buffalo Gap, Megan Gibbs of Houston, and Brandon Gibbs and wife Sarah of Harper, and her great grandchildren, Kylinn and Tobin Gibbs. She is also survived by her brother-in-law, Donald Prew of Buffalo Gap, and his children, Melissa Prew of Fort Worth, Cory Prew and wife Karina of San Saba, and Nikki Powell and husband Wes of Irion County. There are also many other nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews whom she truly loved with all of her heart.

She was preceded in death by her parents, sister, Brenda Prew, brother, Leslie Parvin, and husband, Mickey Ellinger.

Funeral services will be held 2:00pm Sunday, October 25, 2020 at Fry~Smith Funeral Home, Tuscola, Mr. Cory Prew officiating. Burial will follow at Buffalo Gap Cemetery, a visitation will be held before the service starting at 12:30pm at the funeral home. 

Wilma Ellinger’s family would like to extend our gratitude to all the staff at Bronte Health and Rehab Center and Kindred Hospice for their attentiveness and loving care.

Memorials may be made in Wilma’s name to Bronte Health and Rehab Auxiliary, PO Box G, Bronte, TX  76933 or Kindred Hospice of Angelo, 116 W Concho Ave., San Angelo, TX 76903.

Lillian Anita Blankenship Evans

October 26, 1936 - October 14, 2020



Lillian Evans

Arlington - Lillian Anita (Blankenship) Evans, 83, passed away on Wednesday, October 14, 2020. A graveside service, next to her beloved husband, Don, will be held on Monday, October 19, 2020 in the Tuscola Cemetery at 2:30pm, Roy Meyer, of Lawn Church of Christ, officiating. A visitation will be held before the service on Monday, at 12:30, at the funeral home. Arrangements have been entrusted to Fry~Smith Funeral Home, Tuscola.

Lillian and her twin sister Juanita (Dec 2010) were born in Port Lavaca on October 26, 1936 to James Harold (J.H.) and Mildred Lorena (Gill) Blankenship. Lillian moved to south Taylor County at an early age where she attended school at South Taylor High School. While in high school Lillian was named to the all-district girls' basketball team for two years.

Thanks to a close friend, Betty Turnbow, Lillian met her future husband Donald Evans. They married on March 16, 1957. They moved to California, then back to Abilene in 1967 where she went to work for Timex. Donald's work with Foremost Foods moved them to Shreveport where she went to work for Western Electric. They moved back to Arlington where Donald finished his career with Foremost. They moved to Abilene after Donald's retirement. After Donald's death in 2007, she moved back to Arlington to be closer to her family.

Lillian loved women's basketball, she watched it anytime it was broadcasted. Her favorite coach was Pat Summitt at the University of Tennessee. The only thing that she loved more than basketball, are her grandkids and her nieces and nephews. She enjoyed traveling, cooking and listing to music. Her passion was reading the word of the Lord.

She is survived by her daughter, Melinda Pederson and husband John of Arlington; son, Gary Evans and wife Staci of Arlington; son, Bill Evans of Burleson; six grandkids and six great-grandkids. She is also survived by her brother, Harold Don Blankenship and several nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her husband of 50 years Donald William, parents, Harold and Mildred Blankenship, her twin sister, Juanita Cumby, and sister, Iona Earnest.

Cheyenne Miles, daughter Felicia Rogers Miles (1986), passed away the 10th of October.  Please keep the family in your prayers.

Cheyenne (Cheyner) Kari Miles, 27, died Saturday, October 10th, 2020, at home.

Services will be Friday, October 16th at 10:30 am, at Wendt Funeral Home, Moline, IL, with visitation on Thursday, October 15th from 4 pm until 6 pm at Wendt Funeral Home, Moline, IL. Burial will be at Greenview Memorial Gardens, East Moline, IL.

Cheyenne was born on February 19, 1993 at Good Shepherd Medical in Longview, Texas.  She is the daughter of Scott and Felicia Miles of North Henderson, Illinois.

As a little girl, Cheyenne was always on the back of a horse. She was never afraid of horses and was a natural rider. Growing up, she was active in 4-H and Illinois Junior Rodeo. She was a member of the New Windsor Drill Team from 2005 to 2012 and in 2011,she was the New Windsor Rodeo Queen.

Cheyenne was an Alwood Cheerleader all four years in High School, graduating in May 2011. She attended St. Ambrose University for college until 2014, competing on their Competitive Cheer team from 2011 to 2013.

Cheyenne lit up a room and had a bubbly personality. Her smile was contagious and she loved everyone genuinely. Cheyenne acted selflessly if anyone had a need.

Cheyenne loved horses and cats and had a beautiful voice. She often sang the national anthem at football games, rodeos, horse shows, and fairs.

Cheyenne struggled with addiction and depression and was sometimes misunderstood. We stand believing in Jesus Christ, that he can turn all things for good and though Cheyenne is not with us now, we hope one day we will see her again.

Cheyenne’s greatest joy, accomplishment, and legacy came the day her daughter, Gracee, was born on Oct. 7, 2016.

Cheyenne is a gift and we hold her in our hearts.

Memorials may be made to the family for a fund to be established for her daughter.

Cheyenne is survived by her precious daughter, Grace Erin Michelle, her parents, Scott and Felicia Miles of North Henderson, IL.
