Lita Mae Puryear Herron, 83, went to be with the Lord on Saturday, September 11, 2021 at her home in Crosby, Texas. She was born September 30, 1937, in Huntington, Texas to C.O. and Viola Puryear.
Lita was a fun-loving, bright, sometimes feisty woman that cared deeply for her family, both blood and the many she chose. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She retired from Southwestern Bell after over 20 years as a customer service representative. Lita enjoyed sewing, baking, and caring for her chickens. She also enjoyed spending time with her family and friends and helping to care for her many grandchildren. She had a wonderful smile and a memorable laugh. Lita will be dearly missed by all that knew her.
