Guestbook | Print Obituary

On June 13, 2007 an angel escorted our Motherand friend Pasty Ray to Heaven so she could live forever with love and laughter. Patsy Ray was born August 4, 1935 in Pampa, Texas. She has been a longtime resident of Kilgore. She raised her family with love and dedication. Patsy worked for Emde Johnson Cleaners for many years and also Gregg Home for the Aged. She lovingly and unselfishly provided care for her parents for many years as they aged. Mrs. Ray loved spending time with her family and enjoyed conversations with everyone she met and provided plenty of laughter. She had a way of laughing with you but never at you. Patsy always had time to listen and would lend a helping hand to anyone who asked. She expected great things and was always happy with whatever she had.


She is survived by her two sons, Rickey Ray, Sr. of Teague and Rickey Ray, Jr. of Kilgore; two daughters and their husbands, Deborah and Larry Carlisle of Kilgore and Mary and Roger Minor of Kilgore; five grandchildren, Jody Daugherty, Kippie Moore, Jack Moore Jeremy Minor and Jaron Bryce Ray; seven great grandchildren, Zachary Daugherty, Jody Lee Daugherty, Jr., Makenna Daugherty, Nikke Moore, Eric Daugherty, Christopher Davis and Andrew Moore; special friend Travis Parrish and several nieces and nephews.


Patsy was preceded in death by her parents Thomas and Mary Dobbins and brother Robert Dobbins. 


The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff of Heartsway Hospice and Jordan Home Health for proving exceptional friendship and care to someone who was so important and special in our lives. A special thank you also to Eula B. Odom, Sue Jackson and Odessa Jackson for your compassion and tenderness while caring for our Motherand friend.


Graveside Services for Mrs. Patsy Ray, 71, of Kilgore will be held 2 p.m. Friday, June 15, 2007 at Pirtle Cemetery with Reverend David Hampton officiating. The family will receive friends at the funeral home Thursday from 6 P.M. until 7 P.M.
