Holice Maureen (Cheek) Gray, 88, passed away on Sunday; January 23, 2022 in Glen Rose. She was born October 20, 1933 in Fort Spunky, Texas to O.C. Cheek, Sr. and Ima Ratliff Cheek.
Maureen was a lifelong member of the Glenview Church of Christ in Glen Rose. More than that, she was a Godly woman whose faith strengthened her family bonds. She was known to the grandkids as “Granny” and also known for her excellent cooking. She always worked in Glen Rose as a cook and spent many years working at Barnards Mill and at the hospital. Granny loved to travel and had visited nearly all 50 states in the U.S. She never missed a chance to spend time with family and especially, grandkids. There’s no replacing a bond like a grandmother’s but especially not yours. You taught us so much love and groomed the foundation of who we are. Every day of our lives, your legacy will live on through us.
We’ll miss you, Granny. We love you bushels and bushels.
