The Monitor - March 4, 1985

Pioneer Valley lawman
John R. Peavey Sr. dies

John R. Peavey Sr., of McAllen, well-known retired law enforcement officer, died Sunday in McAllen Methodist Hospital after a short illness.

Mr. Peavey, a pioneer resident, had resided in the Valley since he was 12 years old. He lived in various cities in the area, including Brownsville, where his parents first settled in 1905.

He had been a McAllen resident for the past 40 years.

During his long career in law enforcement, he served as a deputy sheriff, as chief scout for the U.S. Army border troops from 1916 to 1920, and as assistant chief of the Valley sector of the U.S. Border Patrol. He also served as a Texas Ranger, and after his retirement, he continued to hold a commission as a special Ranger.

After he retired he remained active in public life by serving as an appraiser and investigator for a group of Upper Valley banks.

Because of his patrol activities, which took him to every part of the Valley, and his keen interest in the development of the area, he was also cast in the role of historian. Mr. Peavey could entertain gatherings at length with tales of the early days on the border. He was active in the local Old Timers group. Mr. Peavey kept an extensive clipping file, which dated back to the early days of the century beginning with issues of the Brownsville Herald and the old Brownsville Sentinel.

Drawing on this material, which covered more than a half century and upon his own memory, he could discourse at length on the coming of the railroad, early ranch days, conversion of fields of mesquite and cactus into new cities and the forays of Mexican bandits across the border in the World War l era. His recollections of the past were preserved in written form when he also became the author of Echoes From the Rio Grande, an addition to Texas' histories shelves.

Survivors include one daughter, Mrs. J. H. Geraci of Metarie, La., two grandsons, Maj. Robert R. Peavey of Luke Air Force Base, Arizona, and John T. Scott, of San Antonio; a granddaughter, Susan Oehlers of Luling, Tex; a brother, Harry Peavey of Darien, Conn; and three great grandchildren.

The Rev. David Freeman of the First Presbyterian Church will officiate at funeral services Tuesday at 2 p.m. in Kreidler Funeral Home chapel. Burial will be in Roselawn Cemetery with Masonic rites performed by McAllen Lodge No. 1110 A.F. & A.M.

Members of the McAllen lodge will be pallbearers. Honorary pallbearers are Franklin Ewers Sr., Lloyd Bentsen Sr., Ned Lockhart, Shelly Collier Jr., Ned Jackson, James E. Thurman, James Wood, David Wood and Ray Reyes.

Following a courageous battle with cancer, David A. Peavy went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on August 17, 2008. He was born to Frank J. and Pauline Otto Peavy in the historic city of Marietta, Ohio.

He graduated from Culver Military Academy in 1949 with honors in band and many medals in riflery. In 1953, he obtained a degree in Petroleum Engineering from Tulsa University where he was a member of ROTC, and a member of the Lambi Chi Alpha fraternity. He married Mary M. Martin from Tulsa, Oklahoma. In 1954 he entered the United States Air Force where he served as an Air Force Radar squadron leader stationed in Omaha, Nebraska. As a 1st Lieutenant, he received a Metal of honor for meritorious action, and a "Point with Pride" decoration by the Air Defense Command for his role in saving a plane whom had lost com- munications. He returned to Tulsa after leaving the USAF in 1956, and secured a position with the Sinclair Oil and Gas company within the Gas Department. Shortly thereafter, he enrolled in the Tulsa University Night Law school where he received his Juris Doctorate in 1960. While in Tulsa he served as the President of the Oklahoma Gas Men's association, the President of the Methodist Men of Christ Methodist Church, and was a member of the Lambi Chi Alpha House board for 10 years.

He will be remembered by family and friends as having a strong will, gentle heart, and a mentor to those who sought his wisdom.

Emma Louise "Lou" Peavy Post was an active volunteer for a host of Dallas civic, charitable, political and social organizations.

In 1962, she was instrumental in forming the first Boys Club in Dallas. Four years later, she and former Texas first lady Nellie Connally founded the Texas Galaxy Ball to raise funds for the Texas Mental Health Association.

Mrs. Post, 87, died Saturday , Oct 31, 2009 of natural causes at her Dallas home.

A memorial service was Tuesday at Lovers Lane United Methodist Church. She was entombed in a private ceremony at Hillcrest Memorial Park.

Mrs. Post was born and raised in Edgewood, Texas. She received a bachelor's degree from what is now the University of North Texas.

In 1946, she married Troy Post, who parlayed $130 in savings into a financial empire that at one point included the ownership of more than 80 percent of Braniff International Airways stock, all of National Car Rental and 30 percent of the National Bank of Commerce in Dallas. Mr. Post died in 1998.

Mrs. Post nurtured her family and the civic causes she supported, said her daughter Jane Post Harelik of Stuart, Fla.

"She was a great mom," Ms. Harelik said. "She never neglected us. She always had time for us and Daddy. We didn't know how she fit everything in. It was just amazing."

Mrs. Post often worked hand in hand with her husband. "They were pretty equal in everything they did," Ms. Harelik said.

In 1964, she and Mr. Post gave Lovers Lane United Methodist Church three acres to complete a nearly 10-acre parcel that became the church's home on the northeast corner of Northwest Highway and Inwood Road.

Mrs. Post was also politically active. In 1964, Dallas Democratic leaders selected her to be the county's state committee member. She was also a member of the State Democratic Executive Committee when Lyndon Johnson was elected president.

"She was fun and feisty," her daughter said. "She spoke her mind and wasn't afraid to argue with anyone, yet she was a gracious, gracious lady."

Mrs. Post served on the advisory council for the Dallas Community Chest, which became part of the United Way. She also had been a member of the selection committee for the Dallas Grand Jury.

In addition to her daughter, Mrs. Post is survived by another daughter, Judy Post Catalano of Dallas; a son, John A. Post of Dallas; eight grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.

After suffering a long illness, ANN W. Pevey went to her rest with the Lord on Tuesday, January 5, 2010, without complaint as was her lifetime custom.

She is survived by her devoted husband Keith, her daughter Laurie, and her son Keith III. Ann was born May 17, 1933 in the Canal Zone where her father was stationed as a submarine commander. When the war started he left for duty, she and her mother and sister moved to Haddonfield, N.J. to live with her grandparents. After her father retired, the family moved to Montgomery, Alabama where she later attended Hollins College before coming to Houston. She was predeceased by her parents, Adm. John R.

Ann was also a dedicated member of the Cat Fancy and was a well known International Cat Fancy show-judge who traveled widely to many countries. She was a highly respected breeder and her bloodlines were often eagerly sought for their show quality class. During her long career, she accumulated a host of championship awards for best of class. Although, she narrowly missed a Cat of The Year award by placing second, after the long campaign she blithely accepted the reality with poise and made it her final venture.

She is survived by her sisters Carole Hanson and Julie Cound, her brother-in-law Richard N. Pevey and his wife Marcia, and many nieces and nephews.We wish to express our deepest thanks to the numerous physicians who provided many additional years of life with special gratitude for our dedicated friend, Nizar Dholakia, M.D., and a special thanks to the staff at Cornerstone Hospital.
