In lieu of flowers the family is asking for donations to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Coye was born on November 20, 1920 in a small home in Millsap, Texas. She was the daughter of Horace Alan Miller and Mary Ethel (Crawford) Miller. Coye attended the small school system in Millsap, graduated at 16 and then went to Texas Woman's University where she received a teaching degree. Momma returned to Millsap to teach English and Business Education for a short time. Her teaching skills moved her on to the “big city” of Weatherford, Texas. While teaching at Weatherford High School she sponsored many groups, but most importantly she met the love of her life, Woodrow W. “Red” Emmons. The two were married on January 27, 1949 and what a wonderful life they had together. Daddy was the epitome of the true coach which sent them to Ball High School in Galveston, Texas and finally to Spring Branch Independent School District in Houston, Texas where they taught for over 30 years. Coye’s passions included teaching, being involved in First Baptist Church Spring Branch, music, and most of all her family. After 10 years of marriage, their only child was born, Coye “Jan” Janette Emmons Spears. From this point on, momma was a constant cheerleader for “Team Emmons”. She taught during the day at Memorial High School and attended all of the extra curricular events of her husband (mostly football, basketball, baseball, and theatrical events) and daughter (choirs, church, and drill team). Our lives were full of living and she did it well. Coye Emmons was a gentle spirit who loved God and family. Her legacy of love was shared in the form of momma to Jan, MiMi to her grandchildren, David and Bethany, and “Grape MiMi” to her precious great-grandchildren, Coraline Janette, Emily Klair and soon to be named baby boy Overman. In her final years her caregiver became a true member of her extended family. Thank you Murlian Victoria Abney for your generous love and care shared with us. The angels sang and Daddy was waiting at the Pearly Gates for Momma early Tuesday, August 22, 2023 at her daughter’s home in Houston, Texas. Our God was sure to have said, “Well done my good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of the Lord,” Matthew 25:23. She was preceded in death by her precious husband, Woodrow Wilson “Red” Emmons; and parents, Horace Alan Miller and Mary Ethel Crawford Miller. Coye is survived by her daughter, Coye Janette “Jan” and David M. Spears, Sr. of Houston, Texas; grandson, David M. Spears, II of Houston, Texas, and granddaughter, Bethany J. and Daniel L. Overman of Pearland, Texas. The greatest joy she had was being “Grape” MiMi to Coraline Janette and Emily Klair Overman.
