Obituary for Pansy Pearl Coble

Pansy Pearl (Edwards) Coble, daughter of the late Charles Wood and Beulah (Kilmer) Edwards, was born September 2, 1927, in Competition, Missouri, and passed away November 25, 2017, at Country Living Assisted Living in Mountain Grove. She was 90 years, 2 months, and 23 days of age.

Pansy had a wonderful childhood. When she was young, she and her sister would ride their horses to school two and a half miles. Her blind grandmother lived with her family until her passing. Pansy was saved and baptized at an early age. She had an eighth grade education, but life taught her first hand. Pansy married Fay Lemons on May 5, 1943, at the age of 15. Shortly after they were married, Fay had to leave for World War II, and they were blessed with their first child, Twyla. Leon was later born after Fay was out of the service. Pansy was a homemaker and she also helped Fay with chores.

She was well-known for her out-of-this-world cobblers and fried chicken. She enjoyed working in her gardens and she loved her flowers. She loved spending time with her family, and said many times that she was so blessed with her grandchildren. She loved going to singings and church socials. Pansy attended Glendale Church for many years and she was a member of the Glendale Quartet, which included her husband, Fay Lemons, Lester Davidson, and Roy Harrison. She and Fay were married 45 years before he died of cancer. Pansy later married George Cunningham, and they were married one and a half years before he passed away. He taught her how to drive at the age of 62. Pansy later married Don Coble and they were married for 10 years when he passed away. Together, they enjoyed being on the lake fishing. She was blessed with a step-daughter, Glenna Vestal and her husband Jess.

She attended Emmanuel Baptist Church as long as her health permitted. Pansy said she had a good life and wouldn’t trade it for anything. She lived her last three years at Country Living Assisted Living. She was very blessed by Joe Golden and all of the staff at Country Living. She often talked about what loving care she received, and she truly loved everyone. There was never a stranger that wasn’t a friend. She was loved by all.

Besides her parents, Pansy was preceded in death by her husband of 45 years, George Fay Lemons, and later by her husbands, George and Don, her daughter, Twyla Lemons, her grandson, Bernard Keith Crewse, her great-grandson, Derick Lee Sellars, her sister, Charlene Barnes, and two brothers, Harlan Edwards and Harold Edwards.

She is survived by her son, Leon Lemons and wife, Carol, of Topeka, Kansas, her step-daughter, Glenna Vestal and husband, Jess, of Marshfield, Missouri, two sisters-in-law, Edith Mae Murin and Doris Jean Edwards, five grandchildren, Rodney Crewse and wife, Ronda, of Cabool, Missouri, Ronda Sellars and husband, Ben, of Mountain Grove, Missouri, Debbie Horton and husband, Larry, of Tecumseh, Kansas, Richard Crewse and wife, Serena, of West Plains, Missouri, and Vickie Riden and husband, Dale, of Panama City, Florida, fifteen great-grandchildren, Jeff, Amber, Jake, Heather, Brad, Bryan, Alexis, Josh, Daryn, Brenton, Ashley, Zach, Johannah, Grace, and Daniel, twenty great-great-grandchildren and one on the way, and many nieces, nephews, and extended family who will miss her.
