Eddie Marie Gentry Obituary

Eddie Marie Gentry, age 82, passed away peacefully on Monday, July 30th, 2018, at her home in Mt. Ida, Arkansas. She was born September 9th, 1935, in Potter, AR, to Arthur and Edna Lee (Smith) Sharp. She attended school in Alder Springs, Arkansas.


Growing up as the oldest of 6 siblings, and being the only daughter, Marie learned responsibility and developed a strong work ethic at an early age. As a result, she was adamant that her children carry forward these same traits. As a young adult, Marie joined the Weingarten Brothers Grocery Co., where she ultimately retired after a long career in management. 


In 1980, Marie married her late husband Foye L. Gentry in Houston, Texas. Together they fulfilled their life long dreams of owning a farm in upstate New York, and later retiring in Mena, Arkansas, and raising cattle.


Having never met a stranger, Marie could strike up a conversation with anyone who would listen, and the two would soon be laughing over trivial topics. And, quickly many would discover she loved to read, and had an even larger passion of collecting books. It didn’t matter the topic, but cooking, gardening, medicine and real estate tended to be her top picks. She was also a smart shopper, always looking for a deal. She found great pleasure in the hunt. 


Marie was survived by daughters: Colleen Strother and husband Eddie of Mena, Arkansas, and Sheri Bonds and husband Johnny of Mt. Ida, Arkansas

Sons: Daniel Irwin of Splendora, Texas, Jerry Ritchel of Altamont, Illinois, Mark Ritchel and wife Laurie of Beaumont, Texas, and Dan Ritchel and husband Derrick of Houston, Texas.

Marie was preceded in death by her parents, and her husbands Bobby Corder, Daniel C. Ritchel Sr., and Foye Gentry, as well as her brothers Jack Sharp, Arthur Lee Sharp, and Ronnie Sharp, and her daughter Rhonda Kay Ritchel.

She will be dearly missed by her children, as well by her brothers Wayne & wife Betty Sharp, and Johnny Sharp, and her loving grandchildren, Stacy, Tim, Kristopher, JR, Kayla, Deseray, Hayley, Danielle-Abigail, and Alexis.


Services will be held Friday, August 3, 2018 at 11:00A.M. in the Beasley-Wood Chapel with Brother Stacy Strother officiating. Interment will follow in the Concord Cemetery in Ink, Arkansas, under the direction of the Beasley-Wood Funeral Home.


Pallbearers are Cordell Ritchel, Dillon Ritchel, Brock Strother, Blake Strother, Tim Strother, and JR Ritchel.


A special thank you to the Montgomery County Nursing Home over the past few years, for being friends and becoming family with our mother, Grandma Marie.

Governor Readis Horn Jr. Obituary

Governor Readis Horn Jr.

January 27, 1932 - July 17, 2018

 

 

Governor "Readis" Horn, Jr. passed peacefully from this life surrounded by family and stepped into heaven on July 17, 2018 at the age of 86.

On January 27, 1932, Governor Readis Horn, Jr. was born in Belmont, Louisiana to Clara Skinner Horn and Governor Readis Horn, Sr. He spent his early years fox hunting with his father and tussling with his younger sister Olive and his baby brother Roland. During high school, he developed into a formidable opponent on the basketball court leading his team to the State Championship in May 1951 capturing the MVP and All-district forwards honors. The six-foot, three-inch forward joined the prestigious "400 Club" scoring baskets in droves and went on to score 606 points in a single season, compiling the highest season total in Calcasieu Parish history.

Readis was offered a basketball scholarship to McNeese State University in Lake Charles, Louisiana but discovered that college was not for him. In 1952, he enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and served four years in London, England during the Korean Conflict. It was during this time that he developed a disdain for cold, dreary days and learned to despise the rain.

He married Patsy Bobbitt on November 23, 1957.

After passing up an opportunity to play semi-professional baseball, he began hitchhiking from DeQuincy, Louisiana to Lake Charles, Louisiana to earn a diploma in welding after which he went to work for Olin Mathieson Chemical Corporation in West Lake, LA. He worked from 1959 until he retired in 1997 as a boilermaker/welder.

He was an avid squirrel hunter. Hambone, as he was called, and Festus, one of the best squirrel dogs in South Louisiana, walked many a mile through the woods of Beckwith and Bearhead creeks, with his faithful friend Buddy Odegar, and brought home a lot of game. He taught his boys how to hunt, navigate the woods and instilled in them a love of the woods and the sport.

He also coached his children in baseball. He coached the West Pelican All-Star team to victory in 1976. Some of his players were Tracey "Hoss" Brown, Bill Brown, Scotty Groves, Ernie Horn, and Danny Lentz.

Even at a young age, he sought after God praying for a good wife, children, and a nice home but it wasn't until 1984 on Easter Sunday that he gave his heart and life to God. He attended the First United Pentecostal Church of DeQuincy for many years before moving to Mena, AR in 1999.

Not being one to sit idle, Readis went to work for the First Baptist Church of Mena and developed a host of new friends including Brother David McCord, Pam Pena, Ruth Laws, and many others. When he wasn't working at the church, you could find him working in his garden and his yard. He planted over 70 knockout roses at his home. He reluctantly retired from the First Baptist Church after 15 years of service this past February.

He was a member of the Abundant Life UPC in Mena, AR where he attended faithfully. He often said he had two pastors in his life time, Reverend T.D. Cardwell and Reverend Jack Smith. He loved preaching, worshiping God, the Truth, and praying at the altar.

He was a giant of a man with hands the size of anvils and a heart that was bigger still. It was said of him, "He was one of the good guys and his shoes will never be filled."

Readis leaves behind to cherish his memory his loving wife of 60 years Patsy Horn, four children, John Burnitt and wife Darlene of Magnolia, Texas, Jolene Broxson and husband Terry of DeQuincy, Louisiana, Ernie Horn and wife Tina of Chenier Perdue, Louisiana, and Dustin Horn and wife Elizabeth of Mena, Arkansas. 

'Paw Paw' Readis will forever remain in the hearts of his grandchildren Michael Broxson (deceased), Alicia Guidry and husband David of DeQuincy, Louisiana, Cory Broxson and wife Denise of DeQuincy, Louisiana, Alan Burnitt and wife Lori of Flowood, Mississippi, Jonathan Burnitt and fiance Thea O'Rouke of Portland, Oregon, Ethan Burnitt of Spring, Texas, Chase Horn and wife Katelyn of Lake Charles, Louisiana, Katelyn Thomas and husband Mitch of Lake Charles, Louisiana, Dustin D. Horn, II of Little Rock, Arkansas and Sophie Horn of Mena, Arkansas. He will also be missed by his great-grandchildren, Matthew Broxson, Emily Broxson, Sarah Guidry, Nick Guidry, Briana Broxson, Noah Broxson, Hudson Burnitt, Holton Burnitt, Madison O'Rouke, Tosh O'Rouke, and soon to be born Henley Grace Thomas. Readis is also survived by a host of nieces, nephews and extended family.

Visitation of family and friends will be received from 3 p.m. until 9 p.m., Thursday, July 19 at the Abundant Life United Pentecostal Church in Mena, Arkansas. Readis' life celebration will be held at 2 p.m., Friday, July 20, at the Abundant Life United Pentecostal Church with Reverend Jack Smith and Reverend T.D. Cardwell officiating. Interment will be held at Belmont Cemetery in Belmont Louisiana at 2 p.m., Saturday, July 21. Serving as pallbearers during the memorial service are Chase Horn, Ethan Burnitt, Cory Broxson, John Burnitt, Ernie Horn, and Dustin Horn. Serving as pallbearers at the gravesite service are Alan Burnitt, Ethan Burnitt, Chase Horn, Terry Broxson, Ernie Horn, and Dustin Horn.

He was born July 14, 1935 in Black Springs, Arkansas to the late Henry Arthur Manning and Jessie Lorene Hughes. Bill, always Mickey to his wife, graduated in May, 1954 from Hico High School in Ruston, Louisiana. Bill was united in marriage to Roberta in California on January 18, 1958. We lived and traveled all over Europe – what fun and an education for all of us. He retired after 20 years in San Antonio, Texas. He graduated from Lady of the Lake University and earned his CPA. Bill loved to fish, hunt and play golf. He was an avid sports NBA fan. The 10 years before retiring, he became President of a corporation owned by a Japanese family who owned multiple golf courses and country clubs in San Antonio. They spoke no English and Bill’s southern tongue couldn’t quite handle Japanese, but it was fun and he loved them all and the job. Then it was time to retire to the green mountains of Arkansas and his “white cows”. Bill enjoyed coaching little league baseball, playing basketball, hunting, fishing and golfing. He was a member of the U. S. Air Force and he and his family traveled all over Europe, stationed in Spain and later in the mountains of Germany.
