Katherine Hembree

June 3, 1926 — July 12, 2021


Katherine Hembree (Granny Kate), age 95 of Odessa, Texas passed from this life on Monday, July 12, 2021. She was born on June 3rd, 1926 in Rule, Texas to Hugh and Vera Gober.

Granny Kate dedicated her love and life to her family. She never missed an important moment with any of her loved ones (Unless it was Thursday-hair day!!) She was a hard working woman who lived her life to the fullest. Katherine was a feisty fighter who fought until the very end. She was Granny-Kate to anyone that she ever met, everyone was family. She loved to sit back, visit with family and have an ice cold glass of sweet tea (after the dishes were done.) She will be dearly missed by all friends and family.

Katherine is preceded in death by her mother and father; Vera and Hugh Gober, brother; Oliver Gober, Twin sister; Pauline Mixon, sister; Christine Franklin, brother; Laylon Gober, sister; Vinnie Lee Rexroat and great grandson; Zackrey Landry.

Those left to cherish her love and memories are her daughter; Dana Erwin and husband Eddie, son; Jay Hembree and wife Norma, grandson; Scott Erwin and wife Stacey, granddaughter; De’Ann Weekly, great grandson; Chris Issac, great granddaughter; Ali Landry-Erwin and boyfriend Danny Cruz, great granddaughter; Haley Shook and husband Brendon, great granddaughter; Cloe Erwin, great grandson; Caden Weekly and great great grandsons Peyton and Landon Issac.

A special thank you to Lili Valenzuela, Kay with Visiting Angels and Star Hospice.
