Donna Lynne Satterwhite Taylor

January 5, 1959 - September 6, 2020

Donna Lynne Taylor passed away on Sunday September 6, 2020 in Abilene, Texas at the age of 61. Donna was born January 5, 1959 in Winters, Texas to Bobby Satterwhite and Jackie (Haswell) Norman. She graduated from Jim Ned High School in 1977 and lived in the Big Country area for her entire life. She found great happiness when she married her soul mate, Jerry Taylor, in August 2003. She enjoyed swimming, gardening, craft projects, and was a lover of all animals, particularly her cats. However, her most favorite thing was spending time with her husband, children, grandchildren, and friends. She was a truly kind person and known for her witty sayings, funny stories, and wonderful laugh.

She is preceded in death by her parents. Survivors include her husband Jerry Taylor of Abilene, daughter and son-in-law, Lauren and Asa Selzer of Fort Worth, son and daughter-in-law, Evan and Brett Tarpley of Fort Worth, three grandchildren, Zoey, Blaine, and Emma (coming soon!) of Fort Worth, stepmother Peggy Satterwhite of Lawn, nieces Alexis Satterwhite of Menifee, California and Hailey Satterwhite of Corpus Christi, and many relatives and friends who will deeply miss her.

Due to the current COVID restrictions and per her wishes, a celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that memorial contributions be sent to Rescue the Animals / SPCA in Abilene (

Karen Denise Hampton Pemberton

Karen Denise Lancaster Pemberton

April 24, 1950 - August 30, 2020

Karen Denise Pemberton, 70, of Lake Brownwood, passed away Sunday, August 30, 2020 in Abilene. Visitation for family and friends will be Wednesday, September 2, 2020, from 5:00 to 7:00pm at Fry~Smith Funeral Home in Tuscola. Services will be Thursday, September 3, 2020, at 2:00 pm at Lawn Baptist Church in Lawn. Service directed by Fry~Smith Funeral Home, Tuscola.

Karen was born on April 24, 1950, in Brownwood, Texas. She was the daughter of Jiggs and Earlene (Phillips) Hampton. Karen attended Early High School where she was a member of the National Honor Society and graduated Salutatorian in 1968. She attended Howard Payne University, and at the same time, obtained her Beautician License. On August 23, 1968, she married the love of her life, Larry Wayne Pemberton.

Karen and Larry made homes in Brownwood, Llano, Mineral Wells and Rankin, Texas, before settling in the Jim Ned Valley in 1980. In 1971 they welcomed their daughter, Treva Kalene, and in 1975 brought the birth of their son, Jake Shane. Karen had many talents, but none she loved more than being a mother, grandmother “MawMaw”, and “Mrs. P” at Jim Ned CISD. Karen touched the lives of countless children during her years at Jim Ned.

Karen worked for Jim Ned CISD for 26 years until her retirement in 2010. Retirement led Karen and Larry back home to Lake Brownwood where she had enjoyed many years as a young child at her grandparent’s lake home. She enjoyed her last years at home on the lake entertaining family and spending as much time as possible with her grandkids.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Glen and Thelma Harms, her parents Jiggs and Earlene Hampton and her granddaughter Kyli Pemberton

Karen is survived by her husband of 52 years, Larry Pemberton of Brownwood; her daughter Treva Gambrell of Lawn, Texas; her son Jake Pemberton of Ovalo; grandchildren Wyatt Gambrell, Laramie Gambrell, Brenham Pemberton and Teague Pemberton and one brother Carlton Hampton and wife Shelly of Early.

Jeff McClure

Ovalo - Jeffery Lee McClure, 62, passed away on July 28, 2020, in Abilene, Texas.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, August 1, 2020, at 10 AM at the Buffalo Gap Cemetery with Roy Keith of Tuscola United Methodist Church officiating.

Jeff was born in Abilene to David and Rosa Lee McClure on January 5, 1958. He went to School at Jim Ned and graduated in the Class of 1976, then went on to follow his passion by completing the Machinery Tech program. He married Robbi Nichols on May 24, 1986, in Austin, Texas. He spent his life doing what he loved: working on machinery and taking care of his family. Jeff never hesitated to give to those in need and selflessly provided for those he loved. Few people who knew him were not impacted by him. Jeff was respected by his peers in all things he did by demonstrating a renowned work ethic and unshakeable integrity. He wanted to succeed in all he did and pushed himself to excel. While attending Jim Ned, Jeff received many athletic accolades and awards, including but not limited to, Football Captain, Basketball Captain, Football Hero, Class President, Class Favorite, and Mr. High School, among others.

Jeff was preceded in death by his Father, David McClure, in 2013.

Jeff is survived by Robbi, his five kids; Sarah and Tony Hill, Clinton and Karen McClure, Rachel and Rance Loafman, Marshal and Alex McClure, and Nicholas McClure, as well as his grandkids; Jackson, Ava, Brady, Brynn, Layni, Riley, Raelynn, Rory Belle, and Rhett. Jeff is also survived by his mother Rosa Lee McClure, and his brothers and sisters; Mikey and Cleone McClure, Rick and Donna McClure, and Melinda and Rick Ikeler.

Jeff's family wishes to extend our sincere thanks to anyone who has helped us grieve, sustained us, prayed over and for us, and most importantly, those who loved and supported him.
