Gann, Para Lee Whitmire


Para Lee Whitmire Gann, 87, passed away on August 20th 2019 in her home in Richardson Texas with her family by her side.  Para was born in Kenefic, Oklahoma on March 16th 1932.

Para was preceded in death by her parents  Mike Bennett Whitmire and Lottie Bell Hood, her daughter Lisa Gann Ramirez, her sisters Ruby Lee Wix, Annie Bell Owens, Fanny Mae Johnson and brothers Joseph Riley Whitmire, Loyd Lee Whitmire, Cecil “Tince” Bennet Whitmire, Harold “Slim” Francis Whitmire and baby Joseph Whitmire.

Para is survived by her sister Cleo Imogene Golden, her daughter Pamela Gann Owens and sons Larry Gann and Kenneth Gann, Granddaughter Amy Kelly, Grandson Andrew Gann, and Great Granddaughters Rylie Hope Broom and Emmeline Pear Swift.

Para enjoyed going to church and worshiping the Lord.  She loved to read the bible and had a green thumb for plants.  She enjoyed cooking for her family and visiting friends.  Even as her own health declined she could be counted on to lead a prayer for someone in need.  She will be greatly missed by the ones who love her.

The family will be receiving visitors on Saturday, August 24, 2019 at 10:00 am in the Brooks Family Chapel of the North Dallas Funeral Home, 2710 Valley View Lane, Farmers Branch, Texas 75234.  The funeral service will follow beginning at 11:00 am also at the funeral home.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location. They help to make the process as easy and comforting in my opinion as to be expected, I would recommend their service to anyone. Thank You to everyone who helped me and my family. Sincerely,"

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
