Sister Eddie Gray
We were deeply saddened by the loss of our dear sister in Christ, Eddie Lou Gray on July 15, 1999, following an eleven year battle with cancer. At the same time we bow in thankfulness that she is free from her suffering;
She was one of the sweetest sisters we have ever known. Sister Lou was very faithful in attendance in spite of her illness, having been in the church service only a few days before she was called home to be with the Lord. Her courage in the face of adversity was an inspiration to the church and all who knew her. She will be greatly missed.
Sister Eddie Lou was born on Oct. 1, 1938 in Grand Saline. She married Travis L. Gray on June 15, 1957 in Big Spring. She and Brother Gray joined the Philadelphia Primitive Baptist Church, Big Spring, TX on Feb. 29, 1976 and were baptized by Elder B. R. Howze.
She leaves to mourn her passing, her husband, Travis L. Gray; two sons, Troy and Dale, one daughter, Waydean; six grandchildren, one sister, Helen Ayers, all of Big Spring, one aunt and a number of nieces and nephews1, her church family and a host of friends.
Elders John Homer and Ronnie Hedges spoke words of comfort to the family and the large congregation at the service held in her memory at the Philadelphia Primitive Baptist Church. Brethren of the church served as pallbearers. She was laid to rest in Trinity Memorial Park to await that grand and glorious resurrection morning.
We wish to extend our heartfelt sympathy to Brother Gray, her children, grandchildren, sister and the rest of her family.
Be it resolved that we place a copy of this notice on our church record, and copies to Brother Gray and family, and a copy to The Banner of Love for publication.
