She was preceded in death by her husband, Virgil Lee Tidwell and the father of her children, Frank Stewart; sisters, Betty Broughton, Diane Hansen, and Juanita Carroll.

She is survived by her husband, Marcus Menton of Corsicana; daughters, Cindy Cates and husband Steve of Corsicana, Nancy Minton and husband Eddie of Ennis, and Deeann Stewart and companion William Annis of Corsicana; step-son, Mark Menton of Ennis; step-daughter, Kathy Blackwood of Arlington; grandsons, Joshua Bruso of Corsicana, Scotty Minton of Ennis, Colton and Cavender Villarreal of Corsicana, and Evan Whit Annis of Corsicana; granddaughters, Carly and Abby Cates of Corsicana, Samantha Minton of Ennis, and Melanie Villarreal of Corsicana; step-grandson, Stephen Menton of Chicago, IL; step-granddaughters, Emily Menton of Nacogdoches, and Jenifer Abernathy of Ft. Worth; step-great grandson, Sean Abernathy of Ft. Worth; sisters, Margaret Cogdell of Tawakoni, Pat Lastly and husband Tommy of Burnett, and Jeannette Bain and husband David of Mexia; brothers, Jack Lewis and wife Carolyn of Mexia, Charlie Lewis and wife Dell of Tawakoni, and Terry Don Lewis and wife Carol of Georgia; she also leaves behind The Tidwell family which she loved very much, and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Visitation with the family will be held from 6 to  8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013 at Corley Funeral Home.

Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 27, 2013 at the Corley Funeral Home Chapel with the Rev. Harold Scott officiating.

Pallbearers will be Cavender Villarreal, Colton Villarreal, Scotty Minton, Joshua Bruso, Mark Menton, Chuck Tidwell, and Charles Newman. Honorary pallbearers will be Dylan Tidwell, Aaron Tidwell, and Kris Tidwell.
