Grace Blassingame
OLNEY - Friends and family, Grace Blassingame, would have been 88 years of age this February 22, 2017. She passed away quietly January 4th at 7:13 a.m. in Hamilton hospital in Olney from complications resulting from three falls in one day on December 7, 2016. Grace was born on February 22, 1929 in Olney. She wanted to donate her body to science and that is exactly what we have done. She wanted to make a difference in this world, and by golly, she has.
A memorial service will be held when her ashes are returned to us. She wanted to be interred in Megargel Cemetery, and we will follow her wishes. She was full of vinegar and always a smile. She loved her family and friends. She is survived by one sister, Judy Remy of Snyder and more nephews and nieces than I can list. Any remembrances, donations, or gifts, please donate in her name to your most worthy charity. That will make her smile in heaven.
Ole Pal was one of her favorite people and he made her smile frequently. I will notify everyone in plenty of time to get to the memorial service when it is scheduled. Lots of folks in Colorado City, Snyder, and Marble Falls will remember and tell a story about this feisty lady. If anyone wants to share, please do so on here so we can all smile and feel the warmth of Aunt Grace’s hug. Bye, Lady.
Darrell Ray Bonner
LORAINE - Darrell Ray Bonner, 59, passed away on Thursday, December 22, 2016 in Waco after a massive heart attack.
Darrell was born to Louis and Elaine Bonner on March 30, 1957 in Manhattan, KS. His Childhood was spent in Wamego, KS and he attended the Manhattan Vo-Tech School for Welding. Darrell later enlisted in the US Air Force where he received an honorable discharge. He was employed as a truck driver at the time of his death. He started in the business at a very young age and had always preferred being behind the wheel of a freightliner where he could enjoy the open road.
It was said that he was a very smart kid. He never had to study in school and often skipped school, but only to show up on “testing” day to make an “A”. He was well liked and made friends very easily. His blunt and to the point personality often drew people around him. He was a man of little words, and worldly possessions, but prideful none the less.
His love for his grandchildren was evident through his bantering ways. He would not want his family and friends to take pity on his death, but rather celebrate with a “shindig”.
He is preceded in death by both his parents, Louis Bonner and Elaine Robinson; a younger sister, Beverly Bonner; and a niece, Amanda Bonner. He is survived by his daughters, Casie and husband Joey Lujan of Loraine; Jamie Bonner of San Angelo; and Alyssa and husband Branden Paschel of Hereford; sisters, Darla Hanks of Holton, KS; and Joann and husband Frank Douglass of Enid, OK; a brother, Bill Bonner of Las Vegas, NV; four grandchildren, Casein, Josiah, Johnathan, and Cayton Lujan of Loraine; and a handful of cousins and nieces.
There will be a Celebration of Life for close friends and family at Calvary Baptist Church at 1 p.m. on January 21, 2017. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the American Heart Association in his name.
