Martha Gayle Horton (Gray), 80, of Oak Valley passed away on Sunday, December 15, 2019 at Twilight Nursing Center in Corsicana, TX. She was born on February 22, 1939 in Corsicana to A.C. and Jean Gray.

Gayle was raised in Emhouse, Texas and attended Emhouse High School. She worked at Medical Arts Clinic and Navarro College. She was everybody’s Memaw. She loved telling stories, sitting on the porch with friends, and selling her handmade crafts. She was always ready to put on a show. She will be remembered as a fun-loving, passionate woman who made life for everyone around her more exciting and full of laughter.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 63 years and love of her life, Billy Hugh Horton, Sr.; sisters, Billie Ann Owen and Betty Lou Eastland; and son, Stan Horton. She is survived by her sisters, Peggy Moore and Patsy Melton; son, Billy Hugh Horton, Jr. (Lynette); grandsons, Justin Horton (Kristin), Brandon Horton (Dana), and Gregory Luke; granddaughters, Brooke Pittman (Tony), Emily Myanna (Tegra), Kara Welch (Landin), and Taylor Luke. She is also survived by her seven great-grandchildren, bonus sister Jean Whitten, a large extended family, and a wide circle of adopted grandchildren who loved their Memaw and Pepaw. The family would like to thank all the caregivers at Twilight Nursing Center for the support and care they provided during this time.

Visitation with the family will be held on Wednesday, December 18, 2019 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at Corley Funeral Home. Funeral Services will be held on Thursday, December 19, 2019 at 2:00pm at Corley Funeral Home with Michael Howard officiating.

Bill; we really cannot find the words to express how saddened we are by your Mom's passing. Anything we say seems too often repeated and sounds so hollow. We don't know how to pull out the ache that is felt deep in our hearts and find a manner to transform those feelings into words. If there is any solace in your parents passing so close to each other it would be that they are spending Christmas together in the company of our Lord. God Bless you and yours during this difficult time. Rick and Traci (FRPM)
