After later moving to Longview, he found his new work home at LeTourneau where he worked as a mechanic and Flander’s Electric where he worked as a mechanic in the A/C department. It was during these 25 years that he developed many life-long friendships. After health issues would no longer allow him to work outside the home, he spent countless hours in his shop creating, fabricating, and repairing projects for himself, family, and friends. David had a knack for being able to create something out of nothing and re-purposing any conceivable item. While his health would allow it, David was very involved with the Pine Tree Masonic Lodge 1396 and obtained the level of Master Mason. In 1982, David met Kelly and they married in June of 1984. In their nearly 40 years of marriage, they developed a love for travel and were able to enjoy 17 cruises together.

Jean Ann Jones

Mar 14, 1930 - Feb 27, 2024

Longview, TX

"After a seven-week illness, Jean Ann Jones went home to be with the Lord on February 27, 2024 in Longview, Texas. She was 93. She moved to the Longview area in 2019 to be near family. A memorial service for friends and family in Michigan is planned Saturday, June 15, 2024 at 11:00 am at the Country Christian Evangelical Free Church in Scotts, MI. Jean was born on March 14, 1930 in Battle Creek, Michigan to LeRoy and Geneva (Rusch) Hart. She graduated from Battle Creek Central High School in 1948 and enjoyed attending her class reunions while living in Michigan. Jean met her husband, Claire, at the Grand Trunk Western Railroad offices where they both worked; they were married on May 9, 1953, in Jean’s family church in Battle Creek. After living in an apartment for one year in Battle Creek, the couple moved to Climax across the street from Claire’s parents and kitty-corner from his aunt and uncle. In the tiny town of Climax, Jean and Claire lovingly raised their two daughters, Diane and Laura. They were married for 52 years. Diane and Laura treasure the times the family spent together when growing up in Climax: “We loved going on family picnics and outings —eating the delicious potato salad and freshly-baked apple, peach, and blueberry pies that Mom made. She was a good cook. We loved playing our musical instruments together and listening to Dad play his saxophone accompanied by music-minus-one records. We loved eating the delicious harvest from the yearly garden, camping once a year in beautiful, northern Michigan, and going to Detroit Tiger baseball games. We remember the fun we had playing board games and ping pong, and taking drives through beautiful, rural and wooded country areas after eating out. We remember watching the old family Christmas slides, never forgetting the videos of the family, friends and smalltown events that Mom and Dad recorded on the movie camera. Some of these special moments took special preparation, time and work, and we loved them for it. Mom was a very special mother and homemaker. We treasured being her friends as adults.” Later on, Jean and Claire were part of the founding members of Country Christian Church in Scotts and often played together for church services (piano and tenor sax). They were very blessed by their involvement there. The people and what they learned there played an important part in their lives. Jean enjoyed homemaking, reading, playing the piano, being involved at church, gardening, camping, family get-togethers, working at the Lawrence Memorial Library, Study Club, teaching 4-H in years gone by, and other activities. She cherished times spent with friends, family, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Jean really cared about them, often putting herself in their shoes and them first. She was an encourager. Jean would want to thank her family and friends who helped her in Michigan during the years after Claire died, especially when she began to lose her eye-sight. “You were an extremely important part of her life and were very dear to her.” As a result of illness, Jean moved to live with Diane (Fred) in Nebraska to regain her strength. After several months, Jean was able to move to Texas near Laura (Tom) and their family, where she lived in a cheery apartment in an independent living complex. Jean said that she very much enjoyed living there, daily helped by Laura. Towards the end of Jean’s life, Dave and Elizabeth beautifully built a small cabin in their yard so that their Grandma Jones could live there; the family loved her and she loved them. “We were privileged to experience Mom’s/Grandma’s gentle, pleasant and flexible spirit, even near death.” Jean was preceded in death by her parents, LeRoy and Geneva Hart, a still-born younger brother, her husband, Claire, of 52 years (died on September 9, 2005) and sister-in-law, Ardith. Those left to treasure Jean’s memory are: daughters—Diane of Nebraska and Laura (Tom) of Texas; grandchildren—Amanda, Jim (Monica) and Dave (Elizabeth); just-like-a-granddaughter—Kerri (Jarred); several great grandchildren; cousin—Jeannine (Bob); and nieces and nephew—Cynthia (Bill), Suzanne (Bill), and Brad (Robyn). “We miss her but are blessed knowing that she is in the Lord’s magnificent presence, able to see and walk again, and reunited with Claire, family and friends.” Memorial contributions in honor of Jean can be sent to Country Christian Evangelical Free Church, 9286 36th Street S, Scotts, MI 49088. Private inurnment will be in Prairie Home Cemetery, Climax."

Courtney Nicole Therneau

May 25, 1985 - Feb 26, 2024

Longview, TX

"Our hearts are broken to announce the death of Courtney Nicole Therneau, 38, beloved daughter of Randy and Vicki Therneau. She was born in Longview, TX, May 25th, 1985, and left us to mourn her passing, February 26, 2024, from injuries sustained in an automobile accident. She attended Trinity School of Texas from kindergarten, until she graduated Valedictorian of her senior class in 2003. She graduated from Hollins University in Roanoke, VA., in 2007 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Philosophy and a minor in Psychology. Continuing her education, she received her Masters Degree in Psychology from the University of Texas at Tyler in 2009, and became a Board Certified Behavioral Analyst. She worked with children suffering from autism. Courtney’s memory will be forever treasured by her friends and family. She was preceded in death by both of her grandfathers, John Allen, and Owen Therneau. She is survived by her mother and father, Randy and Vicki Therneau, her grandmothers, Wanda Allen and Jean Therneau, all of Longview; her aunt and uncle Nanette and Jeff Dyess of Pearland, TX. her cousins Christen Dyess Reyanga (husband Beau and children Harper and Wren) from Lantana, TX.; Kimberly Waddle of Pearland; and Callison Dyess Manz (husband Alex and son Jack) also of Pearland; as well as many other special family members, great aunts and uncles, and second and third cousins. How can the sum of a person’s life be contained in a few words? In describing Courtney, her mom wrote, “She was tenderhearted, compassionate, thoughtful, and loving.” Her tender heart and great compassion led her toward people and animals who needed her help. She noticed the ones most people overlooked. What admirable and amazing qualities Courtney possessed! Her passion was to make a real difference in the lives of her clients and their families. Courtney was devoted to her family. She was always ready to help, family or friends, whenever she was needed. Her final hours on this earth were spent helping her Dad fix a fence for her horses. Courtney enjoyed horseback riding since she was a child. She loved her horses so much that, when Courtney went off to college, she took her horse to college with her. We are certain she made better grades than the horse made. The labor involved in raising horses, and tending to her beloved pets (her dogs, her two cats, her pig, and her turtle), was never a burden to her. She loved being with animals. Courtney was a tissue donor. Even in death, she was able to save another person’s eyesight, as well as provide tissue for several clef palate reconstructions. Courtney will be remembered as a uniquely, gifted young woman, a brilliant student, and a beautiful, kind soul. Her legacy of faithful caring will remain because she will live on in our hearts always. “The Lord is near the brokenhearted and saves the crushed spirit.” (Psalm 34:18) A Celebration of Courtney’s life will be held at Rader Funeral Home Chapel in Longview, Tuesday, March 5th. Family Visitation will be from 9-10 A.M., followed by her service at 10 A.M. A private family graveside service will follow at Rosewood Cemetery in Longview, TX. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that any gifts or memorials be sent to The Equine Therapeutic Center in Tyler, (To donate: starbrighttyler.networkforgood.com – in honor of Courtney Therneau), or to the Courtney Therneau Memorial Fund at the Ministry Church, P.O. Box 9880, Longview, TX 75608."
