"Johnie May Dement, a cherished wife, devoted mother, doting grandmother, beloved aunt, and dear friend, departed this world on February 14, 2024, in her beloved city of Houston, Texas. She was born on November 5, 1943, in the same vibrant city that held her heart. Johnie May’s life was a symphony of love and compassion. Her warm embrace enveloped her family, friends, and all who crossed her path. As a wife, she stood by her partner, sharing laughter, tears, and countless sunsets. Her love was a beacon, guiding her children through life’s twists and turns. Her two granddaughters were the stars in her sky—their laughter echoing through her home, their tiny hands entwined with hers. Johnie May reveled in their innocence, teaching them the magic of pink flowers and the beauty of life’s simplest moments. Pink was her signature color—a reflection of her gentle spirit. She adorned her garden with pink blooms, each petal whispering stories of love and resilience. The delicate fragrance of roses and azaleas danced around her, a testament to her unwavering devotion. As an aunt, she was a confidante, offering sage advice and a listening ear. Her friendship knew no bounds; she was the glue that bound her community together. Johnie May’s legacy lives on in the hearts of those who knew her—a legacy of kindness, laughter, and the joy of pink blossoms. Rest in peace, dear Johnie May. May your spirit forever bloom in the gardens of our memories. \u0026#55356;??????"

Although Bob was not born in Texas, he took pride in saying “He got here as fast as he could”. Even though he was not a big fan of the summer heat and humidity, he enjoyed all things Texas. From the various cuisines to the annual rodeos, where he enjoyed wearing his cowboy hats and boots, Bob held Texas in a special place.

"Franklin Jerald Leney, 82, of Houston, Texas, passed away on February 7, 2024 surrounded in love by his family. Frank was born on August 24,1941 in Refugio, Texas and is preceded in death by his wife, Sarah Elizabeth Janes Leney and his parents, Franklin Jewell Leney and Vona Irene Moss Leney. Survivors include his two sons, Franklin J. Leney IV (Dana), Kyle Moss Leney (Casey) and grandchildren, Cade and Luke Leney. Frank attended Refugio High School where he was an accomplished athlete competing in several sports earning “Most Athletic” recognition for the Class of 1959. Following graduation, Frank served two years in the U. S. Army with the 8 th Infantry Division Airborne in Wiesbaden, Germany. He attended Texas A\u0026amp;M University before embarking on a career that would span over thirty years in the medical field. Throughout his professional career, Frank spent much of his time in the Houston Medical Center as co-owner of a medical diagnostic laboratory and later within a corporate setting. An avid waterfowl hunter, Frank spent a great deal of time hunting throughout Texas with family and friends. If it was a weekend during the fall, you would have likely found Frank in a duck blind telling stories and laughing in anticipation of the morning flight. His passion and personality for hunting forged numerous friendships he cherished throughout his life. Along with outdoor activities, he enjoyed watching the Houston Astros, Texas A\u0026amp;M football and keeping up with his beloved Refugio Bobcats. Throughout his life Frank’s greatest asset was his personality. Gracious and unassuming, he was thoughtful and always offered a compliment or a kind word for friends and strangers alike. You would be unlikely to find a more easygoing, well-balanced individual, always displaying patience and consideration. His dry, quick-witted sense of humor always came at the most unexpected moments. A loving husband, father and grandfather, he will truly be missed for just being Frank. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, February 17, 2024 at the First Methodist Church in Alvin, Texas.

Valiavetil Varghese Abraham (Manichayan)

Apr 29, 1940 - Feb 02, 2024

Houston, TX

"“I have found the one whom my soul loves” – Song of Solomon 3:4 Valiavetil Varghese Abraham (Manichayan) was born on April 29, 1940, to Theng-umivilayil Geevarghese and Mariyamma Varghese. He was born as the second of three children. He was brought up in a God-fearing Marthoma household. His family later accepted Jesus as their personal Saviour and became members of the then Ceylon Pentecost Mission. He completed his studies and worked in Kerala and the Gulf Countries. Abraham married Karingattil Achamma on August 22, 1966. God blessed then with five children. Following the untimely demise of his wife at the age of 43, he moved back to India. In 2000, he left for the US to be with his married daughter Asha (Roy \u0026amp; Bini) family in Houston, Texas. He continued working in Houston and in 2006, he married Saramma, after which she and her kids moved to US to join him. In 2019, he could bring his children and families to the US. Through the course of his life, endured the heart-wrenching loss of his beloved wife Achamma, dearest son Saji, and loving son-in-law Santhosh. But through it all, he stood steadfast in his faith and carried his pain gracefully with his smile and jokes. He never stopped uttering words of faith and strengthened everyone around him with the word of God and singing songs. He never compromised when it came to his daily devotions and personal prayer. He has been both, father and mother, to his precious children ever since the loss of his wife. He also got to see his great-grandchild. He fell in in December 2023, and his prayer was to somehow be with the Lord forever. He constantly asked his children to commit him to the Lord. Though he had to endure physical afflictions for a short while, the Lord took him to be with Him forever on February 2, 2024, with family by his side. He was fortunate enough to have his family around him always, especially his last days. He leaves behind his wife Saramma and his children: Asha and her husband Varghese Mathew (RoY0, with their children Robinson-Jasmin, and Samuel; Usha and her husband Reji, and their children Ashly-Jephin, Ashina-Jerrin, an Alvin; grandchildren Olivia and Hazel; Daisy and her children Rhea and Rheon; daughter-in-law Joicy and children Nissy an Joshua; Jency and her husband Rajagopal and children Aswin and Jia; Nithin and his wife Jaise and daughter Genesis; Neethu and her husband Lijo and son Levi. Abraham spent his last days at the house of his daughter Usha Reji and her husband Reji Thankachan. We will dearly miss him, and the loss in irreplaceable, but we have that blessed hope to meet him on the other shore with all our loved ones. Oh! What a beautiful reunion it would be."

Daniel Lee Clem

Jan 31, 1959 - Feb 17, 2023

location-icon

Houston, TX

Daniel Lee Clem, 65, suddenly passed into the arms of our Lord on Saturday, February 17. He is survived by his wife, Dorothy, children Kira and Kristian, his sister Debbie Mudge (Wayne), sister-in-law, Faye Grubbs (Richard), brother-in-law, Richard Nuckols (Donna), and numerous nieces and nephews. A memorial for Dan will be held this Saturday, February 24, at 11:00 at Hope Church, 770 Pineloch Dr., Houston, TX 77062. Family will receive friends and family for visitation at the church at 10:00 am. The memorial service will be followed by a light lunch afterwards. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Hope Church. Dan was born in Phoenix, Arizona on January 31, 1959. His father, Wesley, a pastor, and mother, Joanne served in local churches throughout his life. His family moved to Colorado, and then to Sandy, Utah in 1967, where over the years, Dan enjoyed hiking and skiing in the scenic mountains. Through this time too, during his teen years at his father’s Berean Baptist Church, Dan found peace in “a place where God’s word is faithfully taught.” His one constant – his supportive family and the Word they taught – would forever shape his lifelong service and sacrifice to his Lord and Savior. Dan’s formative years in Utah also offered many opportunities to realize his varied interests in all sorts of areas. Evident early on was Dan’s love for engineering when, in junior high, he joined the committee to design a new junior high school. He played the trumpet in marching band, and was on the wrestling team in high school. Always an avid reader and chess player, he excelled scholastically too, teaching himself Russian and taking math classes at the University of Utah while still in high school. Dan earned an engineering degree from the University of Houston, and soon afterward accomplished a Master’s degree in Aeronautical Engineering from Stanford University in half the time of the normal student. His zest for learning never ceased and he was always up to the challenge of a new adventure. It was in college, that the cooking “bug” took hold and he declared himself “Master Chef” in a favorite photo. Nearing his 1984 graduation from Stanford, Dan received a recruitment offer from NASA that brought him back to Houston. The 1980’s decade held a lot of promises for Dan. Not only did he start work at the prestigious organization of NASA, but he joined the Texas National Guard, assigned to the 386th Engineering Battalion, while also training with Airborne. This selfless act with its many sacrifices truly epitomizes John 15:13, laying down his life for his friends. Dan’s middle years were filled with raising kids, serving as a pillar in his church, a dedicated worker at NASA, and a trusted citizen of the community. Hope Church was a second home to Dan for nearly 25 years. He served there as both a respected Deacon and Elder during that time; he ministered at the youth and childrens’ level, joined numerous mission trips, and immersed himself in just about any other church activity. Dan led a life of service to all he knew and worked with. His service and dedication extended to his workplace where his love for reading, teamed with that for writing, resulted in his leading a team to successfully complete the re-write of a 600 page “legalese” NASA safety document and transform it into more applicable and coherent layman terms. Dan’s role in this tremendous initiative earned him the “Plain Language” award in 1999; then Vice President of the United States, Al Gore, personally presented Dan with the award in Washington, D.C. The award was one of many that Dan received in his 40 years in Federal Civilian Service, all of them at NASA. The organization, in 2019, recognized Dan’s leadership and valuable contributions with the Johnson’s Space Center’s Director’s Commendation Award; he was promoted to Procurement Manager as recently as December 2023. He met the love of his life, Dorothy, who became his wife in 1987, and together, they raised two children, Kira and Kristian, at their home in Clear Lake. After 36 years of marriage, “Forever My Love Bug,” was Dan’s sentiment for Dorothy on this year’s Valentine’s gift. He was the steady rock in their family as they faced incredible challenges. For most who were fortunate to know Dan in his lifetime cut too short, they would probably describe him as being a quiet, thoughtful man with a big heart, an intelligent mind, a boyish grin, and subtle yet playful sense of humor. He could and would give selflessly of his time and talents to reach, teach, and be impactful for those he knew. His way was to shine through the glory of God and impart His Word in all avenues of life, making a positive difference in all the lives he touched. Dan will truly be missed. A memorial for Dan will be held this Saturday, February 24, at 11:00 at Hope Church, 770 Pineloch Dr., Houston, TX 77062. Family will receive friends and family for visitation at the church at 10:00 am. The memorial service will be followed by a light lunch afterwards. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Hope Church.
