Lear Gray

March 22, 1940 — November 14, 2016

Lear E. Gray was born in Arkansas on March 22, 1940 to Fred and Dessie Michael & was 1 of 10 children. She met her husband Willie Gray when she was just 16 years old. They were married and remarried again on December 24, 1987. Together they had 6 children. Leah lost the love of her life when she became widowed in 2004.
Lear was not only a wife and mother, she was a grandmother, great grandmother and a friend to many. The Lights of her life were her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She enjoyed watching them dancing the night away at Old Town in Kissimmee. Every time her Great Grandchildren would come to her house they would always leave with a special gift that they would find from her.
Lear had a passion for singing. Her favorite Karaoke song to sing was "Your Cheatin' Heart" by Hank Williams and would bring the house down with that song. She also liked to sing her story songs, like Fertilizer. She always had a way of coming up with a song for any situation.
She had many things she loved and enjoyed doing. One of them was going to yard sales and seeing what kind of bargains she could find. She also loved her garden and decorating. She would decorate her house for every holiday and always made it special. Many cars would drive by her house just to see what she created. Her favorite recipes were Chocolate gravy and her famous Banana Pudding (Nanny Pudding).
Lear was a selfless person even up until she went home to be with the Lord on Monday, November 14, 2016. She is up in heaven now seeing Jesus face to face. She is probably singing her favorite hymn, "Having A Little Talk With Jesus."
Left to cherish her memories are her siblings Jannette, Amerjean, Maydell & Linda, her children Wanda, Sherry, Eddie, Patrica & Becky, her fifteen grandchildren, oodles of great grandchildren along with a host of relatives and friends. She will Forever be in our hearts.
