Margaret (Kerr) Chew-Goodyear
1922 - Apr 21, 2007

Margaret K. Goodyear

On Saturday morning, April 21, 2007, Margaret Kerr Goodyear died peacefully, with a small group of her family and close friends gathered around, in her house in Bryn Mawr, Pa. She finally found the strength and calm to let go after battling illness for a number of months.

Maggie was born in 1922 in Corsicana, daughter to Elva and Lloyd Kerr. She was married to Frank H. Goodyear Sr. in 1993 and was previously married to John T. Chew Sr. from 1944 until his death in 1988.

She is survived by her three children, John T. Chew Jr. of Wayne, Pa., Margaret C. Newbold of Cornish, N.H., and Robert R. Chew of Grantham, N.H.; two stepchildren, Frank H. Goodyear Jr. of Paradise Valley, Ariz., and Alison G. Freehling of Charlottesville, Va.; and three grandchildren, John T. Chew III of Wayne, Pa.; Juliana C. Newbold of Durham, N.C., and Robert R. Chew Jr. of Radnor, Pa.

She was an active member of the following clubs and organizations: The Garden Club of Philadelphia, from 1949 until 2007, serving as president from 1970 until 1972; the board of directors of The Garden Club of America in the 1980s; The Acorn Club; the Women’s Committee for The University of Pennsylvania Children’s Hospital; Cliveden of The National Trust for Historic Preservation; and an honorary member of The Orchestral Committee of the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Letha Emmaline (Grantham) Keathley
May 15, 1909 - May 6, 2007

Letha Keathley

Letha Emmaline Keathley, a few days prior to her 98th birthday, passed away Sunday, May 6, 2007, at Heritage Oaks Retirement Center. Mrs. Keathley was born May 15, 1909, in McGregor to parents Luther and Sarah Grantham.

Letha attended McGregor and Corsicana public schools and graduated from high school in England, Ark., in 1928. In 1927, she was a starting forward on the Arkansas state championship girls high school basketball team.

Upon the death of her mother, Letha moved to Corsicana in 1922 and resided with her aunt, Pherba Huckabee. From 1924 until 1928 Letha resided with her father in Arkansas. Letha returned to Corsicana in 1928 and graduated from the Lacy Rice Corsicana Business School. She loved her piano and played part time for local silent movie theaters.

In 1929, Letha and Charlie Keathley were married on the front porch of her parents-in-law-to-be, the John Hampton Keathley’s home, at Jones Ranch near Frost. Letha and Charlie entered into a wonderful 60-year loving marriage.

From 1929 until 1972 she was employed with the Navarro County Tax Assessor and Collector’s offices. In 1970, she was appointed chief deputy to Jerry Sam Scott, the head of that county office.

Letha resided most of her life in Corsicana except for a brief period during the mid-1930s when she and her husband were transferred to Denton with American National Insurance Company. They returned to Corsicana in 1936 when her husband was appointed district superintendent of American National. Letha and Charlie resided the remainder of their lives in Corsicana.

Letha was a 50-year member of the Order of the Eastern Star. She was a longtime member of First United Methodist Church and was a founding member of the Willing Workers Sunday School Class. She was especially proud of her grandfather who once hauled cypress logs by ox cart from the Houston area to provide support foundations for the original Corsicana Methodist church. It was upon this site where she would spend many years in fellowship and worship.

During World War II, Letha did volunteer work by sewing pajamas and items for the American Red Cross. She was a leader in local PTAs, scouting programs and served as an officer for her Sunday school class and in the Navarro County A&M Mother’s Club. As a lifelong member of the Democratic Party, she also served as a voter registrar, a polling clerk and a precinct election judge. In some capacity or another, she participated in every local election from the early 1930s until the mid-1980s.

Letha loved her close circle of church friends and family. There were many memorable picnics and “84” games at the old Magnolia Lake Club and complex south of Corsicana.

She was preceded in death by her infant daughter, Pherba, in 1938; two brothers, Harold and Horace Grantham, in the 1960s; and her husband, Charlie, in 1989.

She is survived by her son, C. Robert Keathley; a grandson, Steve Keathley, and his wife, Sarah, and their children, Luke and Katherine, Letha’s two great-grandchildren.

The family would like to express sincere thanks to our friends for their prayers and well wishes; and a heartfelt thanks to the aid of Family Service Association, Food for Fitness program, Angels at Home, Letha’s skilled physician Dr. Kyle Hamilton, and all the wonderful staff and caregivers at Corsicana’s Heritage Oaks Retirement Village.

A special appreciation is extended to home caretaker, Mrs. Bonnie “Carrie” Wilson of Corsicana, for her steadfast loyalty, Christian concerns and loving attentiveness for Letha in her time of home-bound needs and comforts.

Family visitation will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. today at Corley Funeral Home.

The Rev. Harold Scott will conduct Letha’s services at Corsicana’s Oakwood Cemetery at 10 a.m. Wednesday, May 9, at her place of interment near the American Legion flagpole hill.

Honorary pallbearers will be Liston Herod, Harry Hudson, Russell Hudson, John Martin, Bobby Fluker, Dee Hawkinson and Billy Lewis.

A calm, patient, generous and caring lady, Mom, and our Grannie, shall be dearly missed until we’ve all crossed over that river to reunite and rest together in the shade of the trees.
