Earline and Clovis raised their family in the Thiefneck community just south of Personville. She moved to a new home in The Woodlands years after his death. In 2010, she moved into Heritage Oaks Assisted Living in Conroe where she remained until October 2013. At that time, she moved into a house in a retirement community in The Woodlands. Earline enjoyed living there with her flower and vegetable gardens. She would sit for hours admiring her flowers and watching the squirrels and birds.
This past year with her has been a gift from God and we are all very grateful for each and every moment we have been able to share with her. She has brought more joy to our lives than you can imagine. We love her and will miss her dearly.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Cecil Clovis Owen and her infant son from a previous marriage, Edmond Eugene Litzler.
Earline is survived by her five children: Patricia Ann Brown; Cecil Dennis Owen; Emma Delmarene Rundell and husband, Gregory; Reta Marie Flores and husband, Julian; and Betty Kyle Ellis and husband, David. She also had 12 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
