Braswell, Thresa

Thresa Ella (Myrick) Braswell

March 8, 1927 - November 20, 2019

Pastor Chuck Jestis will be officiating the celebration of life for Thresa Braswell, age 92, at 3:00 p.m. in the afternoon on Sunday, November 24, 2019 at the United Methodist Church in Blue Ridge, Texas. Interment will be at the Blue Ridge Cemetery immediately following the celebration.

Thresa’s parents are Pink Aubry and Annie Lee Myrick. She was born March 8, 1927 in Blue Ridge, Texas. She was a lifelong Methodist at the time of her death belonging to the Verona Methodist Church. While living and working in Grand Prairie, Texas she joined the fraternal organization of Eastern Star, Chapter #219. Eastern star is an organization with deep religious conviction and sound values whose members share one common virtue. A belief of the existence of a supreme being, God. She is still on their roll as an active member. As she realized her eyesight was failing her to be able to drive, she has not attended regular meetings for the last ten years.

Pallbearers will be: John Bowers, Justin Bowers, Kevin Cambron, Aaron LeFebre, Robert Todd, and Danny Todd.

Visitation will be on Saturday evening 6-8 p.m. at Hurst’s Fielder-Baker Funeral home in Farmersville, Texas.  In addition to her parents preceding her in death- her daughter Vanita Lee also preceded her as well as a brother, Doyce Myrick and sister, Jean Stroup.

Thresa is survived by her son and daughter- in-law, Bill and Patsy Bowers of Rowlett, Texas. Brother Aubry (Soney) Myrick of Carrollton, Texas. Her sisters Viva Pruett of North Richland Hills, Texas and Pauline Todd of Blue Ridge, Texas.

And then the ray of sunshine in Grandma’s Life came 5 Grandchildren. John, Kevin, Shelly, Aaron and Tammy. 6 great Grandchildren and 4 great-great Grandchildren.

Thresa was a dedicated and hard working employee of L.T.V. She worked 30+ years at L.T.V in Grand Prairie, Texas. She earned retirement at age 55. After retirement, she and sister Jean played skipbo almost everyday, but on Thursdays, they took a break from cards and went to the hair salon and had their hair done. You could almost set your “clock and calendar” to this. She enjoyed visiting family and has been with siblings on many short vacations. After her mother passed away, she took the “Apricot pie-making job” for all family dinners. Thresa really liked staying home. She wanted to go but was always anxious to get back home.

We will miss her smiles and hugs.
