Mary "MeeMaw/Mammy" Childers

Gained her wings and left her earthly home on November 11, 2023. She was a huge Dallas Cowboys fan and sat side by side with her daughter Gina and watched every game. Her son-in-law David always stayed hidden in the garage during football season due to the loud cheering. She loved watching Westerns on TV and David purchased every Western channel available. She absolutely loved sweets, especially chocolate. Her and David enjoyed a bowl of chocolate ice cream every evening. Every time her two granddaughters Breanna and Ashley were in her company she would laugh as they would argue over which of the two were her favorite. She had a special relationship with her grandchildren and great grandchildren, Especially Jordan. Who was here little sidekick. She had an extremely close bond with her son-in-law David whom she considered her son. He adored her and would do anything to make her feel happy, secure, and loved. She loved to watch her great granddaughters put on dance shows for her. She loved it when her great grandson Tristen would sit in his Pawpaw's chair and watch TV with her. She always had a sassy comeback no matter the situation. From the moment she discovered she was sick she fought like a warrior with her daughter Gina and her son-in-law by her side every step of the way. She had a big family near and far and loved them all. She was born in Abilene TX on May 23, 1949 to Eugene and Jewell Faye Lang. She is survived by daughters Gina (David) of Hobbs NM, Paula (Gary) of Simpson LA, Michelle (Ed) of Abilene TX, and son Dennis of Abilene TX, 12 grandchildren 32 great grandchildren, brothers Dell and Freddie. As well as several nieces and nephews. She was proceeded in death by her parents, sister Diane, brothers Bobby and Allen, 2 grandsons Gary "Gator" Green Jr. and Jayden Flores, and several aunts and uncles. She loved her Hospice team. Especially her aide Jessica. Who kept her laughing through all her pain. They were a huge blessing and support system, and we cannot thank them enough.
