Starrla Lou (Macon) McMinn Obituary
Starrla Lou (Macon) McMinn, 62, of Midland passed away June 2, 2018, in Midland. She was born February 20, 1956, in Lubbock, to Don and Deweylou Macon.
Starrla graduated from Sweetwater High School in 1974. She received her bachelor's degree in education in 1977. She married Dudley McMinn, the love of her life, on August 16, 1980, in Sweetwater. After their marriage, they began a family and lived in Alpine, Lubbock, and Brownwood before moving to Midland, where they have resided for more than 25 years. She had served as a legal secretary and worked in the Student Life Office at Sul Ross State University in Alpine while Dudley finished his bachelor's degree.
Starrla enjoyed making arts & crafts, decorating her home, and playing Bunco with her group. She had a fun-loving spirit and heart-warming smile that endeared her to everyone she encountered. She loved being "GiGi" to her granddaughters Addison and Brynlee and attending their activities. Starrla and Dudley enjoyed country music, dancing, and traveling together. They made annual trips every summer to the Frio River for family fun and country music.
Starrla was a long-time member of Golf Course Road Church of Christ in Midland. She worked in the library and as a substitute teacher at Midland Christian School, where her children graduated and her grandchildren are currently attending.
She is preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Dewey and Velma McGinley.
She is survived by her husband Dudley McMinn of Midland; two daughters, Kelsey Tatsch, and her partner, Jimmy Evans, of Midland and Haley McMinn of Lubbock; her parents, Don and Deweylou Macon of El Paso; her brother, Dr. Kirk Macon of El Paso; and two granddaughters, Addison Tatsch and Brynlee Tatsch, of Midland.
The family will receive friends from 6-8 pm on Wednesday, June 6, 2018, at Nalley-Pickle & Welch Funeral Home & Crematory, 3800 N. Big Spring Street, Midland, Texas. A graveside service will be held at 10 a.m., Thursday, June 7, 2018, in Resthaven Memorial Park in Midland. The family requests that everyone dress casually for the service and for the men to wear pink in Starrla's memory.
The family wishes to express sincere appreciation to Dr. Robert Vogel, Dr. Eric Olson, Legacy Ranch Memory Care Center, and Hospice of Midland for the excellent care Starrla was given.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Midland Christian School or to Hospice of Midland.
