(Ovalo Eagles) - Class Of 1946

Lota Clyde Johnson Marshall

March 20, 1928 - September 12, 2021

ABILENE - Lota Clyde Johnson Marshall, 93, of Abilene, entered into her heavenly home on Sunday, September 12, 2021 at Hendrick Medical Center. Visitation will be from 5-6:30 pm on Thursday, September 16, 2021 at The Hamil Family Funeral Home, 6449 Buffalo Gap Road, Abilene, TX. A graveside service will be at 11 am on Friday, September 17, 2021 at McBee Cemetery, 1726 CR 142, Ovalo, TX 79541. Lota’s cousin, Gerald Cumby, of Burleson, TX will officiate. Services and burial are under the direction of The Hamil Family Funeral Home.

Lota was born at home in Lawn, TX to Flossie and Clyde Johnson on March 20, 1928. She was a graduate of Ovalo High School. She married her high school sweetheart, William Doyle Marshall, on November 23, 1946. They were married 63 years before his death on July 18, 2010. At the age of 40, Lota embarked on a new adventure, returning to school to becoming an LVN. For the next 15 years, she was employed in the newborn nursery at Hendrick Hospital, loving every baby born.

Her greatest achievement, however, was giving birth to seven children over a span of seven years – six boys and one girl. She had a sweet even-temper and enjoyed the loud, busy home she and Doyle and their children created.

She is survived by daughter and caregiver, Cindy Jeter, of Abilene; sons: Bob Marshall and wife, Donna, and Randy Marshall, all of Abilene, Don Marshall and wife, Diana, of Houston and daughter-in-law, Mellie Marshall of El Paso; sister, Ginger Faircloth of Abilene, 19 grandchildren, 39 great-grandchildren, and one great-great grandchild.

Lota was preceded in death by her parents, husband, Doyle; brother, Bob Johnson; sons, Billy, John and Jerry Marshall; daughter-in-law, Karen Marshall; granddaughter, Kelli Marshall; and grandson, Michael Paul Marshall, his wife Ana, and their two daughters, Samantha and Isabella.

Pallbearers will be grandsons: Jason Marshall, Denny Marshall, Jakob Jeter, Jarod Jeter, and Paul Luper, great-grandson, Jackson Marshall, and nephew, Kenny Faircloth. Grandson, Justin Jeter, is an honorary pallbearer.

The Marshall family wishes to extend our sincere thanks to Dr. Bindu Goel, Dr. Rhett Lohman, Dr. Ren Zhang, and the Hendrick Medical Center North nursing staff on A4 and C6 for their excellent care of Lota.

Memories may be shared and condolences submitted online at www.

There will be a dedication ceremony following the homecoming parade this Friday, Sep 17th, at the Indian Football Stadium.  A monument will be placed honoring the 2020 Jim Ned Indian Football State Champs and "In Loving Memory" of LaChelle Wade Vestal "Class of 1982".  Everyone is welcome to attend.

WINTERS: Mary Alice Davis, 85, passed away Friday, September 10, 2021, at her home in Winters. A graveside service will be held in the Tuscola Cemetery on Tuesday, September 14, 2021, at 11:00am, directed by Fry~Smith Funeral Home, Tuscola. A visitation will be held on Monday, September 13, from 5 to 7pm at the funeral home in Tuscola.
Mary was born on January 28, 1936, to Hill Vandiver and Evelyn Elizabeth (Hafner) White in Tuscola. She attended school in south Taylor County and graduated from South Taylor County, as a proud Tiger, in 1954. She married Robert Davis on December 11, 1954, in Abilene.
      Mary worked for twenty eight years as the city treasurer for the City of Abilene. While working, she was a member of Municipal Finance Officer Association (MFOA), the National Association of Accountants (NAA), and the Jim Ned Valley Heritage Preservation. She was a fantastic record keeper, not only at work, but at her home also.
      She and Robert loved to travel, throughout the United States and abroad. She enjoyed and was very talented at needlework with any kind of needle, from creating the new designs to repairing the old tried and true ones. When not sewing or knitting, she was out in her flower garden dividing flowers to give to her family and friends, and on occasion she could be found on the lake water skiing with Robert. She loved dogs and also named every cow Robert ever had. Her prize title and role was the role of favorite Aunt to her family.
      She is survived by her husband, Robert of Winters, nieces, Vickie White, and husband Dennis of Winters, Marsha Murphy, and husband Tom of Maricopa,
Arizona, Glenda Whitney, and husband Lloyd of Stamford, and Jana Howell of Abilene; sisters Kay Lippineatt of Abilene, and Vandalyn Josey of Abilene. She is also survived by her beloved great nieces and nephews.

(St Flying Tigers) - Class Of 1955

Ellen Faye Reid Walters (St Flying Tigers)

Ellen Faye Reid Walters

July 8, 1937 ~ August 25, 2021

Ellen Faye Walters, 84, went home to be with the Lord Tuesday, August 24, 2021, at Hendrick Medical Center. A memorial service will be held on Friday, August 27, 2021, at 3:00pm in the Moro Baptist Church Sanctuary, officiated by Kenny Smith, directed by Fry~Smith funeral Home, Tuscola. A visitation will be held on Thursday August 26, from 5 to 7:00pm at Moro Baptist Church.

She was born July 8, 1937, in Moro, Texas to EJ and Minnie (Shaffer) Reid. She married Calwyn Walters on June 22, 1958, in Moro, Texas. They celebrated their marriage for 63 years.

Ellen graduated from South Taylor High School in 1955. She began work on the farm, driving a grain truck and tractor. Once married, she stayed home to care for her kids and husband. Ellen began driving the school bus for Jim Ned School District in 1976 and retired in 1998. She was a devoted wife, mother and member of Moro Baptist Church, but her greatest joy was raising her grandsons. You may know her as Ellen, but most know her as MawMaw. When you walked in her door, you were probably greeted with chocolate cake and told to “Go in yonder and wash your hands.” If you fussed, she’d say “I could pinch your head off.” MawMaw enjoyed being home, unless it was “Hair Toss Day” in which she’d also enjoy McDonald’s with Brenda and Ethel. PawPaw calls this “A Regular Ole Hen Party.” Ellen loved the Lord with all her heart. She wanted everyone to know and love her Jesus. MawMaw was the rock of the family, the spoke that kept the wheel going.

She is survived by her husband Calwyn Walters of Moro, Tx, son Ricky Walters and wife Machelle, son Donald Walters and wife Deborah, daughter Tammy Tarango and husband Al, grandsons Brandon Walters and wife Amanda, Tyler Walters and wife Cynthia, Kyle Walters and wife Stephanie, Tanner Walters and wife Muna, John Luke Billington, Randy Burnsed, Bryan Burnsed and wife Chanee, Cameron Tarango and wife Lyndzie, granddaughters Amber Hartness and husband Chris, Deidra Cox and husband Cally, great grandkids Emily, Hannah, Carly, Jayleigh, Kynlee, Adalyn, Kyson, Jesse, Braden and Rylen.

She was preceded in death by her parents EJ and Minnie Reid and siblings Verlon Reid, Clyde Reid and Josie Hicks.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Moro Baptist Church or the Ronald McDonald House of Fort Worth, Texas.
