Edna Owens McCain

Edna would have celebrated her 94th birthday on May 6, 2014, but her Lord and Savior called her home a few days early. Today she is rejoicing with all of her heavenly family. She was a dedicated worker at Hager Slacks for many years before she retired.

Edna McCain, 93, passed away Wednesday, April 9, 2014 at Heritage Oaks where she had resided for several years. She was born in Eureka on May 6, 1920 to John Thomas and Fannie Ola Minitra Owens.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Lawton McCain; very beloved daughters and son-in-law, Diane Taylor, Lawdine and husband Ronnie Haynie; special friend E. P. French; two brothers and a sister-in-law, Buford Owens, George Robert Owens and wife Ruby Mae; three sisters and a brother-in-law, Velma Skeene, Lorene Folmar, Ruby Doolen and husband James.

She is survived by grandchildren, Jimmy Taylor and fiancée Julie Sykes, Steve Haynie and wife Vicki, Scott Haynie, and son-in-law Jerry Taylor; great-grandchildren, Sharie Taylor and fiancée Dustin Aguado, Shawnda Morelock, Spencer Haynie, all of Corsicana, Lauren Stockman and husband Nickolay of Austin; and great-great grandsons, Ace Aguado and Zaylen Sykes of Corsicana; brother Jack Owens and wife Elizabeth of Corsicana; and sister-in-law Betty Joyce McCain of Angus; loving nieces, Danna Dziedzic and Holly Worchesik of Houston; special nephew Kenneth Skeene of Irving, and a number of other dear nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank all of the care givers at Heritage Oaks Retirement Village for the care they gave our Meme, especially Shemaki Robinson, Su-San Couch, and Jennifer Brooks. Also, we are sending love and gratitude to her roommate, Mrs. Edith Rutherford, for being her friend and calling for help when she could not.

Visitation with the family will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, April 11, 2014 at Corley Funeral Home.

Memorial services will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 12, 2014 at the Corley Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Kevin Diggs officiating.
