Mrs. Blentry Ann (Nathaniel) Ealoms
August 5, 1955 – October 30, 2018
Mrs. Blentry Ann Ealoms departed life’s journey on October 30, 2018. She was born to Charles Etta Harris and LeRoy Gibbs in Bryan, TX on August 5, 1955. A graduate of Bryan High School, she continued her education at Blinn College and graduated from both Eastfield College and Texas A&M University- Commerce earning degrees in Business Administration. In life, she worked over twenty years as a computer operator (Dallas Times Herald) and systems analyst (First American and Fleming Food Distribution, Inc.). Ms. Ann retired from the world of computers and enjoyed her life as a secretary at Region 10, ESC. A bubbly and cheerful person, she touched the lives of many people with her sound advice, infectious laughter, and warm smile wherever she went. Her love for travel and celebrating the holidays will be the most remembered. Some of her trips included Rome, Italy; London, England; Boston, MA; and New York City, yet it was her gleeful spirit when celebrating the Christmas holiday that will be mostly missed. Preceded in death is her mother and adoptive father, James Jones; husbands Charles Cotton and Eugene Ealoms; sister, Gwendolyn Pittman; brother, Richard Carroll; and special sister-in-law, Bettie Isom. Ms. Ann leaves to cherish her memory: daughters, Alice and Brenda Cotton; granddaughters, Tatum and Ryan Cotton- Johnson; father, LeRoy Gibbs; sister, Deborah Staten; brother, Richard Nathaniel; and a host of numerous relatives and friends.

Blentry and I first met in Junior High School at Neal Junior High in Bryan, Texas. We were both in the band; Bentry played trumpet/coronet and I played clarinet. We also shared the same initials (BN). After graduation in 1974, we lost touch with each other. I remember Blentry as a kind and giving person.
My prayers are with you as I know she will truly be missed. May you find peace knowing that your love one is resting in the arms of the savior and one sweet day you will all be together again.

My deepest sympathies to Judy, Alice and family. Annie and I shared breaks and lunch at Region 10 so we covered many topics like our travels, recipes, aches and pains, our children, husbands and shared deep dark secrets. We were also close to the same age so our childhood memories came into discussion with lots of laughter! From the first time we met we just had a special bond. She was truly a dear friend and I will miss her but we will meet again and pick up right where we left off.

I knew your mom was the person I wanted to hire the minute I met her. She endeared herself to me and many others here in Early Childhood Services, Region 10. There are so many favorite moments with her in the 5 years she worked with us but one of my favorites is when we went to Clyde Warren Park and rode the trolley. She had a ball and she and I got soaked from the storm getting to my car. We laughed about that day just a few weeks ago, again! There were also the times we had "heart to hearts" which drew us closer together. We learned from each other. We loved and respected each other. I'll miss her being on this earth. One of the sweetest people that I know. Cindy Griffith
