Gillis, Mary Etta Taylor - Fort Worth

Visitation: 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at Guardian Funeral Home. Mary was a lover of life, family, animals and the beauty of Mother Nature. She valued her bloodline and felt family is important. She felt family should be close. She showed this by always being there for her parents as they grew old and her brothers and sisters even after they had families of their own. This same trait of hers was passed down to other family members. She believed family should take care of family, and her brothers and sisters passed this same moral fiber to their own family. Mary was president of the Edgecliff Garden Club in 1960 and 1961. She was honored with a pure silver plate with her name and "Edgecliff Garden Club President" engraved on it. Mary was an active member in many design, flower and art shows. She won top ribbons for best fresh, dried and arrangement of flowers. She studied hard about art and flower design. Her show of talent inspired her. She studied hard and passed the required exams and was awarded official art and flower shows' judge. Mary appeared on Channel 11 in the '60s and was interviewed by Bobbie Wygant about her floral arranging and design. Mary Etta mastered the talent of expressing the many forms of beauty Mother Nature had to offer. In flower show required themes she won first place (blue ribbons) in dried arrangements, fresh arrangements, creative design arrangements and horticulture entries. Year 2006 Mary was presented an award plaque for, "The Woman Who Sets The Standard to Excel" "Inspire and Motivate." For "Dedication and Excellence" as documented in the pages of the "10th Anniversary National Who's Who of Professional Business Woman in Design, Marketing, Management and Real Estate." Year 2007, President Mr. Jon Evans and Executive in Chief Mr. C.A. Mitchell and the "International Woman's Review Board" voted her "Woman of the Year in Real Estate" for "Dedication and Excellence" as recognized by the American Biographical Institute. 2008 The "International Who's Who of Professional Business Women featured her biography including her picture and one of her award-winning paintings for her "Dedication and Contributions to Real Estate and Art." 2009, The Winchester Who's Who voted her "V.I.P. Member" for inclusions in 2006-2009 edition of the Registry of "Executives and Professionals." In two editions of "Who's Who" her picture along with several award-winning paintings were featured. Mary enjoyed traveling to other countries giving lectures on art and the various flower shows she entered or judged, but her true love was her family. She wants all her family members to know when they see raindrops dancing on a window seal or the wind blowing, bending tree tops, or a bed of flowers growing an Indian blanket beside the highway, it is Mother Nature delivering my strength and message to you all telling you she loves you and to stay strong and follow your dreams and goals and be the person you want to be. In heaven waiting to welcome her is her son, Lloyd Dean Gillis; her mother, Winnie Moon; her father, Charles Winfield Taylor Sr.; and her infant brother, Floyd Dean Taylor; her sisters, Margie Pack and Melvene Slayton; brothers, Charles W. Taylor Jr. and Daniel Stanton Taylor, Ed and Fred Jennings; also her grandson, Paul. Survivors: Mary is survived by her sister, Rose Bagwell; daughter, Shirley Norman; daughter, Charlotte Melvene Fisher; and many nieces, nephews and close lifetime friends.

Graham, John L. - North Richland Hills  
John L. Graham, 90, passed from this earthly life to be with his Heavenly Father on Monday, May 16, 2016. Memorial service: 10 a.m. Monday, May 23, at First Baptist Church Euless, in the small church area. Memorials: In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Christ's Haven, 4200 Keller Haslet Road, Keller, Texas 76244. This organization provides care and loving homes to orphaned or abandoned children. John L. Graham, "Larry," was born on March 18, 1926. He graduated from Texas A&M University in 1947. He was a member of the Army Air Corps during World War II. He was also a county extension agent in Mertzen where he met the love of his life, Marie Connor. She was the piano teacher and he was the cowboy. They soon married and, a while later, moved to Uvalde where he was foreman of the Muela Creek Ranch where many sheep, goats and cattle were raised. Ranching was a true passion for him, and he also loved hunting and fishing. But, above everything, he loved his wife and children most of all. After a few years, Larry and Marie moved up to the Tarrant County area here in North Texas where they resided for over 55-plus years. During that time, Larry became a chief sanitarian for the Tarrant County Health Department and then later became the chief administrator of said agency for many years. He introduced his wife and family to all kinds of animals including sheep, goats, cattle, horses, rabbits, chickens, dogs, cats and even wild animals like deer, havelinas and more. Later in their life, Larry introduced Marie to pistol shooting. Marie soon found out that she kind of liked it, and soon became very proficient at it, many times outshooting Larry, occasionally to his chagrin. Larry had a common sense approach to life, but always with love and understanding. He always put his family as one of his highest priorities next to his God. His faith in the Lord was strong so we know we will see him again. Survivors: Loving wife of 65 years, Marie Graham; children, Dr. John Graham, Billy Graham and Joy Lira; grandchildren, Laura, Joseph, Amanda and Rob; great-grandchildren, Elijah, Micah, Emma Grace and Mason; brother, Dr. Corbett Holmgreen, and many, many close friends.
