I called her Sister Guillory as she was my pastors wife for almost 16 years. I also had her in one business class at Westlake High school my senior year. Over the years I have seen her on numerous occasions and she has always been the kindest lady to me. I had the privelege of preaching a revival in Oberlin, Louisiana when I traveled as an evangelist and she was a great hostess. I a better man today, because she was a part of my life for so many years. Sister Guillory I count it a privilege to simply have had you as a teacher and leader in my life. Until we meet again, Rod Bankens

Gloria and Rachel, I know your hearts are hurting, but what an inheritance you and your children have. She was one of the most caring, warm Christian ladies I have ever known! She loved everyone unconditionally. My prayers are with you today - so sorry I was not able to be there with you. Love you both very much, Sharon.

I remember sister Guillory fondly. She was my pastor's wife. I have seen her and visited with her over the years. She was a lady with class.

Mrs. Guillory was one of my all-time favorite teachers (Mansfield Elementary, 1969-70?) despite the fact that she sat and drank her ice cold Dr. Pepper in front of us on hot, hot days. ;) A lovely lady!
