Texas passed away peacefully
at Santa Fe Health and Rehab on
Sunday, February 21, 2021. Lonnene
was born on October 8, 1947 to Lonnie
and Rose (Bachor) Wooten, both
deceased. Lonnene was a dedicated
Christian, avid artist and loved working
with children. Her friendly disposition
radiated in her previous hometown of Throckmorton, as
well as with the residents and staff at Santa Fe Health and
Rehab. Lonnene is survived by her children, son James Erik
Latham, wife Sonia and granddaughter Erika Latham; her
daughter Emily Ferenz and husband Cory; granddaughter
Brook Mitchell Steadham and husband Bradley and
great-grandchildren Hazel and Keaton; grandson Richard
Mitchell and his fiancé Kali and great-grandson Kailor; and
grandson Logan Mitchell. Surviving siblings include her
sister, Betty Lee Burden Locke and husband Michael, and
her brother Gary Coker and wife Karen. She was preceded
in death by one sister, Lynda Schrick and brother, Johnny
Wooten. She is also survived by several cousins, nieces and
nephews, who all adored and loved her.
Lonnene was known for her love of teaching children,
especially in the church. She often contributed her artistic
skills to VBS at the Church of Christ and also served as an
aide during her granddaughter Brook’s Girl Scout years.
She also volunteered at the nursing home in Throckmorton
with various activities with the residents. Lonnene
loved to bake pies for Sunday dinners at the church where
she gathered in fellowship with many friends.
There will be no funeral services held; however, we will
hold a small family gathering this summer to spread her
ashes in Coleman.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be
made to the Throckmorton County Youth Activity Center.
The address for mailing donations is Throckmorton County
Youth Activity Center 301 N. Reynolds, Throckmorton,
Texas 76483. There is also a GoFundMe (In Memory of Lonnene
Wooten) set up for online donations.
