James Allen Story

Mr. James Allen Story was born Oct. 28, 1938 in Corsicana, Texas, and left this earth to be with his Lord and Savior on Sunday, Dec. 29, 2013, at the age of 75. At his death, he resided in Corsicana.

He was married to Nelda Sue Hodge at Eureka Methodist Church and had recently celebrated 55 years of marriage. He retired at age 65 after a long and successful career to spend his retirement years doing what he loved most, fishing, hunting, and spending precious time with his family and friends.

He will be most remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather, a man with a forever smile, a beautiful attitude, a man who lived and loved every God-given minute he spent on this earth, one who will be deeply missed by all those who loved him so very much. We rejoice, however, knowing that he is singing and dancing in heaven above.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. S. E. Story; brothers, Roy Story, Elmer Story, J.R. Story, Tommy Story; sisters, Leona Strange, Dolly Wagner, Odell Morris, Betty Story, and Hope Story.

He is survived by his wife, Nelda Hodge Story of Corsicana; son, Brad Story and fiancé Kathy Ledbetter of Nacogdoches; daughter, Cindy Hyatt and husband Bobby of La Vernia; grandchildren, Shannon Story, Tamara Story, Ryan Hyatt, Kaley Hyatt, and one great grandchild, Payton Rice; sister, Deanne Freeman of Woodward, Okla., along with many loving relatives and friends.

Visitation with the family was held from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday, Dec. 30, 2013 at Corley Funeral Home.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 31, 2013 at the Corley Funeral Home Chapel with the Rev. Fred Ward officiating. Interment will follow in the Eureka Cemetery.

Pallbearers will be Michael Ward, Matt Ward, Danny Hayes, Sonny Hayes, Darryl Hodge, and Ryan Hyatt.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Eureka United Methodist Church, 8644 S. Hwy 287, Corsicana, Texas 75109 or to the Eureka Cemetery Association,  c/o Jerrell D. Gregory, 400 S.E. CR 3020, Corsicana, Texas 75109.
