Erple Pemberton went home to be with our loving father and her dearest husband, on Feb. 24, 2011. She will be laid to rest privately in South Park Cemetery. This world was wonderfully blessed the day she was born, Sept. 8, 1933, in Porum, Okla., to Jess Redding and Bessie Mof fitt. Erple was a loving housewife, a wonderful mother, and a generous and caring grandmother.
She was devoted to taking care of her family and was always there when we needed her. She enjoyed cooking for her family and friends, playing with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and watching Elvis movies and gospel programs. She also adored her beloved dog, King. Please watch over us all and save us a place in Heaven with you.
We love you and will miss you dearly. â€œI love you, Grandma.â€ Those left behind to cherish her memory are her sons, Raymond Kenneth Collins, Tim Pemberton, of Roswell, Bobby Pemberton, of Roswell, and Jimmie Pemberton and wife Starli, of Roswell; daughters, Brenda Billingsley, of Carlsbad, Sheryl Macias and husband Frutoso, of Albuquerque, and Shirley Fuller and husband Edward, of Thayer, Mo.; and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband Auther Kelley Pemberton; sisters, LaVaughn Murray, Mildred Pemberton, Lillie Mae Hogue and Juanita McCain; her parents; and brothers, Hugh Redding and Homer Redding.
Please take a moment to share your thoughts and memories with the family in the online register book at andersonbethany.com. Arrangements are under the direction of Anderson Bethany Funeral Home and Crematory.
