Don Mac Shrum, 81, of Joaquin passed away on Thursday, November 23, 2017 in Joaquin. He was born on July 20, 1936, in Rains County, Texas, the son of Loyd Eugene (Gene) and Rozella (Buchanan) Shrum.

Don was born and raised in Rains County, Texas. He graduated from Brazosport High School and soon after, joined the U.S. Army, where he honorably served his country.  Don met a very special lady, Joyce Mullins, and the two soon realized the love they had for each other.  In May of 1961, she graduated from high school, and on June 9, 1961, the two were joined in marriage.  This began their love story which lasted until her passing. Don held many jobs during his lifetime, but always made sure he provided for the family that he and Joyce had.  He loved his children and his grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the light of his life. He spent many hours loving on them and watching them grow up.  He also enjoyed fishing and reading, but his favorite memories were when he and his lovely wife were travelling. Their most memorable trip, and favorite places to visit was Branson, Missouri and the state of Tennessee. Don loved life and his family. His legacy of love and hard work will forever live on in the hearts and minds of those who knew and loved him.

Don is survived by his daughters, Sherry Hass and husband, Rex of Joaquin, Texas, Vickie Williams and husband, Roger of Lufkin, Texas; brothers, Loyd Shrum and wife Sybil of Mena, Arkansas and Perry Shrum and wife, Leslie of Angleton, Texas; sisters, Linda Piwonka of Clute, Texas, Raynell Presley of Dallas, Texas, and Lavern Chandler and husband, James of Colfax, Louisiana; 6 grandchildren; and 16 great-grandchildren.

Arthur Ross Thornton, 86, of Timpson, Texas, passed away on November 21, 2017 in Timpson. He was born on July 18, 1931 in Timpson to Arthur T. Thornton and Jewell B. Morris Thornton. Funeral services will be at 2:00 PM on Friday, November 24, 2017 at Taylor Funeral Home with Pastor Rusty Mitchell officiating. Interment will follow at Blair Cemetery. 

A visitation will be from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM on Wednesday, November 22, 2017 at Taylor Funeral Home. 

Ross was a fourth-generation family farmer at the Thornton Farm in the Blair Community in Timpson. He started milking cows at the young age of seven and developed a passion that lasted a lifetime. He graduated from Timpson High School in 1949 and then served in the United States Army for three years, before heading south to work at Monsanto Chemical as an operator in Texas City. There is where his life changed forever. Each day, Ross would eat at a bus stop restaurant and became enamored with Betty Gene Matthes, a beautiful cashier who also sold bus tickets. He would ask her out daily, and Betty turned him down time after time. She finally told him that she had two little girls to worry about and Ross told her, “Well, that’s just what I need!” Ross and Betty were married on October 19, 1955 and lived an amazing and love filled marriage for 62 years. Those two little girls, Karen and Dawn became his pride and joy. While Ross may not have been their birth father, Karen and Dawn were “his girls” and they counted it one of the greatest blessings to call him “Daddy.” 

Ross was one of the hardest working men around. He retired from Monsanto Chemical, but also worked for Austin Power, Brown and Root, and Acme Brick. Throughout this entire journey, he never lost his roots at the farm. He made sure to always find time to come home and continue the traditions ingrained in his heart. Some of the most treasured times spent with his daughters were working on the farm, riding horses and sharing his knowledge and wisdom of the world with them. He taught his family to have a strong work ethic and no matter what challenges might come, to face them with dignity, find a solution and never ever give up. “Push through” he would say. He was pure country and was proud of it. Ross wasn’t all work and no play. He loved every second spent with his family; especially the grandkids and great-grandkids.

When the whole crew would get together, you most likely would find them playing 42 or Canasta. Ross was a pro at 42 and even won local tournaments with his skill. He also enjoyed reading western books and watching western movies, but if the Cowboys were playing, he would be cheering on his team. He even hoped and prayed that after he passed, Jerry Jones would open up the stadium roof so that he might watch from Heaven. In his later years, Ross became less able to work with the cows on the farm, but he most certainly did not lose interest. He spent much of his time simply watching them each day. He liked those slow, quiet moments just observing the animals he’d dedicated his life to. It brought him serenity. Ross served on the Timpson ISD School Board a number of years and was also a member of Timpson First United Methodist Church where he and his wife were actively involved throughout their lifetime. Love, compassion, humility, and a truly genuine heart are words that describe Ross and attributes that will be dearly missed. 

Ross is survived by:
His beloved wife: Betty Gene Thornton of Timpson

Daughters:
Karen R. Shepherd and husband Gary Pierce, of Timpson
Dawn Marie Mitchell and husband, Rusty of Plano

Grandchildren:
Kristin
Bryce
Kari
Bryan
Betty
Dawna
Tandy
Mike
Chris

Seventeen great-grandchildren and one great-great grandchild.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Arthur and Jewell Thornton; and sisters, Hildred Dempsey and Audrey King.

Pallbearers will be Michael Talley, Bryce Harris, Bryan Harris, Gary Pierce, Tracy Hooper, and Jerry Greer.

Honorary pallbearers will be Joe Dillon, Ryan Majcher, and Joe Walker. 

The family is being served by Taylor Funeral Home in Timpson.

Virgil Marion Clark, 98, of Timpson, Texas, passed away on November 15, 2017 in Nacogdoches, Texas. He was born in Henderson, Texas on January 25, 1919 to Marion Edwin Clark and Nellie (Ellis) Clark. Funeral services for Virgil will be at 11:00 AM on Saturday, November 18, 2017 at First Methodist Church, Garrison, Texas with Rev. Rick Anderson officiating.

Interment will follow at Todd Cemetery in Caledonia, (Family Cemetery). Visitation will be from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM prior to service at First Methodist Church, Garrison, Texas. 

Virgil married Mildred Todd in 1938. They had two children, Sharron (1940) and Kennith (1942). When WWII started Virgil was exempt from the draft due to having 2 children. He worked in Houston at the shipyards at the beginning of WWII, but his inner call to duty had him enlist in the Army where he served until the war’s end. He was honorably discharged and returned to Houston and his young family, and began his career as a home builder.

His first retirement came in 1967 when he and Mildred started a new business selling art supplies as Mildred taught art classes. Also at this point Mildred had started a wedding catering business.  Both businesses continued until the second retirement in 1981.  They sold out and moved back to the Todd family farm near Caledonia. Virgil built a woodworking shop and raised a few cows. All was well until Mildred passed away in 1993.

In 1996 Virgil married Nadeyne Cooper from Henderson.  He and Nadeyne enjoyed going antiquing, finding treasures he could return to his woodworking shop and complete restoration.  Life for the Clarks’ was centered around family, farm, and Caledonia Methodist Church, Timpson Methodist Church, and Garrison Methodist Church. 
He lived his dream as a gentleman, cattleman, and woodworking master.  Virgil was admitted to Garrison Nursing Home in July 2016. With his passing we say, “good bye and God Bless” to a life well lived and a family well served.

Virgil is survived by:
His wife: Nadeyne Clark

Grandchildren: 
Todd Lykke and spouse Amy
Paul Clark and spouse Melissa
Jayne Clark

Son-in-law: Clifford Lykke

9 great-grandchildren

2 great-great grandchildren

and a host of family and friends that will miss him dearly.

He is preceded in death by his first wife, Mildred Todd Clark; son, Kennith Clark; daughter, Sharron Clark Lykke; and sister, Lula Mae Clark Hollingsworth.

Visitation will be held from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., Sunday, November 19, 2017, at Watson & Sons Funeral Home in Center.  Funeral service will be held at 10:00 a.m., Monday, November 20, 2017, at Watson & Sons Chapel with Bro.

Sister Real was born April 13, 1925, in New Orleans, Louisiana, to Herman Peter Francis and Euriel Pauline Urrey Francis.  She was a well-known and loved figure in the Timpson community for over thirty years, keeping to the Bible as well as her late husband’s, Pastor J.G. Real, edicts of “you got to love them” when it came to not only your neighbor but people in general.  Also, always be thankful to God for the good and the bad.  Her faith has moved mountains and has been a literal example of how to pray without ceasing.  Much more than a Godly woman and mother, she was an encouraging matriarch to any she came across or met.  Her hobbies included attending any church activity, going on scenic drives, working puzzles and playing and singing church music. She was a member of Center First United Pentecostal Church.

She is survived by
Daughters:
Colleen Johnson of Timpson
