Emma Lee Herod, 79, passed away peacefully in her home on Monday, September 23, 2019 in Nacogdoches, Texas after a hard-fought battle with pancreatic cancer. She was born in Italy, Texas to Grady Lee Davis and Venis Louise Gates. She married the love of her life, Sam G. Herod in October 16, 1956.

Emma loved her independence. Most of the time you could find her out in her yard tending to all her plants. She loved flowers and always had birdseed out so that she could watch the birds while drinking her morning coffee. She enjoyed fishing and spent most weekends during the summer at Lake Sam Rayburn with family. She was known to dress up in fancy clothing and loved to look nice. Wednesday’s were for margaritas and making memories. She rarely missed a Wednesday night with her friends and family for over 30 years. Above all, she loved her family and would have done anything to help others.

Emma is preceded in death by her parents Grady Lee Davis, Venis Louise Gates, and Jack LaVoie; her husband Sam G. Herod, her sister Ann Bozeman, and her granddaughter Casey Harrell.

She is survived by her son Sammy Herod and wife Eyvonne, son Daryl Herod and wife Nichole, daughter Jackie Pennock and husband David, daughter Brandy Fields and husband Thomas; grandchildren Samuel Herod and wife Tamara, Jason Herod and wife Leslie, Ashten Averhart and husband Bear, Darian Herod, Jocelyn Herod, Samantha Herod, Sarah Barthol, Michael Pennock and wife Ana, Chrystal Hartman and husband Daniel, Mary Fields, Tommi Jo Fields, Emily Fields, and Andrea Fields; siblings Adell Frazier and Jimmy LaVoie; great grandchildren Griffin Herod, Scarlett Herod, Corey Ballard, Connor Herod, Kinlee Herod, Niko Averhart, Rhys Averhart, Addilyn Pennock, Marli Hartman, Jaxon Hill, Zeppelin Hartman, Kelsey Hartman, Kennedy Perkins, Ryder Pennock, and Jace Harrell.

I remember when my son Steven put a dead 🐈 either on her door step or on her foot. She would always bring it up when I was around. We would just laugh about that Damn Cat.
