Louise Spann Pyle


It is with great sadness that the family of Louise Spann Pyle, loving mother and grandmother, age 96, of Palestine, TX passed peacefully on January 16, 2019. Louise, previously of Liberty City, was a resident of TruCare Nursing Center in Palestine. She was born on August 15, 1922, to George Dewey and Letha Spann.

Louise was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Roy Pyle; son, Jackie; infant daughter, Gloria Ann; infant great-grandson, Austin; son-in-law, Del Chapman; daughter-in-law, Jodi; sister, and brother-in-law, Betty and Kenneth Robertson; and brother and sister-in-law, Rayburn and Josephine Spann.

Louise was dedicated to her church in Liberty City (McCary’s Chapel Methodist Church) and enjoyed many years of fellowship with her family and friends while there. Louise’s greatest joy was her family. She will be remembered for her deep commitment to her children and grandchildren and for her gentleness, kindness and soft-spoken manner.

Louise’s children wish to express our gratefulness to TruCare Nursing Center in Palestine for the tender, loving care given to our Mom.
