Treon Odean Erwin, of Coolidge, passed away Nov. 21, 2019, in Waco, at the age of 84. Funeral services were held at 1:30 p.m., Monday, Nov. 25, at First Baptist Church in Coolidge, with the Rev. Chuck Sturgeon officiating. Interment followed in the Coolidge Cemetery. Danny Finley, Dale Lowry, Dr. Chris Hulen, Randall Jacobs, Heath Allcorn and Abraham Serna served as pallbearers.

Treon was born Nov. 18, 1935, in Hopewell, Okla., to John and Florence Troutman Teafatiller; her family were descendants of the Choctaw Indians. She was a graduate of Coolidge High School, Class of 1955. She retired from the Mexia State Supported Living Center, after 20 plus years of service, as Supervisor of Housekeeping.
Treon had a “zest” for life, was very outgoing and willing to help anyone or anywhere she was needed. She was very active in her church and community. She served on the Coolidge School Board, Coolidge Senior Citizens Board and the HUD Board. She was an active participant in the Coolidge Garden Club, Mesquite Tree Festival and enjoyed singing with the Wings of Joy. Treon loved the Lord and exemplified it by the way she lived her life. She was a longtime active member of First Baptist Church in Coolidge.
Treon may have been busy in many outside activities, but her dedication and first priority was her family. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Happiness meant being with her family, and the time and love she shared with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren was extra special.
She was preceded in death by her parents, John and Florence Teafatiller; husband Kenneth Earl Erwin; and sister Evelyn Downs.
Treon is survived by two sons, Donald Erwin and wife Katrina, of Coolidge, and Brent Erwin, of Ft. Worth; grandson Kenneth Erwin and wife Jnette and their children, Mason and Chase, of Coolidge; granddaughter Deirdre Erwin, of Coolidge; brother Daniel Teafatiller and wife Betty, of White Settlement; and a number of nieces and nephews.
