Marie E. Remming


Marie Evelyn Remming devoted wife, mother and friend was born on November 9, 1921, in Granger, Texas. She was the fourth-born child of James and Elizabeth Turbon. She was called home to be with the Lord on June 9, 2016 at the age of 94. Marie is preceded in death by her parents, her husband Walter, a sister Willie Mae Price, and two brothers Everett and Robert Turbon. 

Marie was married to Walter H. Remming of Titusville, Florida, on March 30, 1949. To this union, a daughter, Denise Darcel, was born. Marie was a dedicated, loyal and faithful wife for fifty-seven years. She and Walter completed 27 years of outstanding service in the United States Air Force. They traveled extensively in the Continental United States and overseas. Her love for service led her to work at Kelly Field as a clerk typist and aircraft engine mechanic. 

In retirement, Marie was dearly loved by her community and chapel families. She maintained her enviable physical stamina well into her 90’s by block walking in her neighborhood. She was very active with her neighborhood watch and was a celebrity at her Women Connection Luncheons. At the Chapel, she served on the Usher Board, member of the gospel choir and finally as the “Mother” of the Freedom Chapel Gospel Services. No one sat in her seat . . . for long! After Sunday services, she was off to Acadiana Café for some “chicken and dumplings”. Next to loving God and family, Marie was very outspoken about her love and support of the San Antonio Spurs. On any game night, neighbors could easily have reported her for “disturbing the peace”. 

 Marie is survived by her daughter Denise, two sisters-in-law Jessie Pugh and Sally Turbon, a nephew James Turbon and a host of relatives and friends. A visitation will be held Tuesday, June 21, 2016 at Castle Ridge Mortuary from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. A Celebration of Life Service will be Wednesday, June 22, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. at Castle Ridge Mortuary,  Interment to follow at a later date at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery.
