Jimmie Lambert Gresham went peacefully to be with the Lord on Monday morning, March 15, 1999. She passed away at Medical Center of Terrell after a valiant struggle with an extended illness.
Jimmie was born to the parentage of James C. and Viola Parker Lambert in Alba, on Nov. 4, 1914. She was preceded in death by her devoted dog companions, Angel and Pepsi.
Jimmie is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Sara and Andy Parker of Forney; granddaughter, Sara Jennifer Parker and her fiancee, Rick Biddenstadt, of Forney; and grandson, Jeffrey E. Parker, a junior at Baylor University in Waco. She is also survived by her cousins, Elizabeth Cornelius, Linda Cornelius and Mary Vidaurri of Houston. She also leaves to mourn her passing her good friend, Billie Harrison of Mineola, her devoted caregiver, Gail Spraglin of Paris and countless other friends.
A native of Alba, Jimmie graduated from Alba High School in 1931. She graduated from North Texas State Teachers College (now the University of North Texas) with a bachelor of science degree in elementary education in 1935. She was most proud of the fact that despite the Depression and many financial problems, she and her sister were both able to graduate from college. Jimmie became the first of three generations in her family to graduate from the University of North Texas. She taught school for a few years in various Texas towns. In 1936, she married Thurman Eugene Gresham of Fort Worth after meeting him on a blind date. After their marriage, they lived in Wickett, where Thurman worked for Gulf Oil. In later years, Jimmie and Thurman owned and operated the family business, Alba Grain and Grocery Company. While Thurman served his country in World War II, Jimmie lived in Dodge City, Kan., and Longview, where she worked at Harmon General Hospital. She helped the war cause by knitting sweaters and socks for the U.S. servicemen. In 1959, because of a railroad dilemma, they moved their business to Mineola and continued to operate it until Thurman's death in 1969. In 1985, Jimmie relocated to Plano, to be near her daughter and her family. In 1996, she followed them to Forney, and lived in her own home there until her passing. Jimmie was a life-long Methodist and gave her heart to Jesus many, many years ago. Her last church membership was at Custer Road United Methodist Church in Plano. She most recently attended Parkway Hills Baptist Church in Plano with her family.
If one word could be used to describe Jimmie it would be that she was a survivor. During her lifetime, she survived many hardships, hurts and physical problems. However, she kept her faith, her sense of humor and her tenacious spirit until the day of her death. Her family and friends will remember her for her firece love of each of them, her never-tiring "gift of gab" and her sharp mind. She was a smart woman who enjoyed reading, playing games with her friends, gardening, knitting, cooking, baking and spending time with family.
A celebration of her life was held at 4 p.m. March 17, 1999, at English Funeral Home in Mineola. The Rev. D. Samuel Dennis, pastor of Parkway Hills Baptist Church, officiated. Special music was provided by the Rev. Jakie and Dottie Shirley of Emmanuel Baptist Church in Temple.
