Colette Ray Huffman, 91, past resident of Mt. Pleasant, and graduate of MPHS, passed away on Thursday, March 25, 2021, at her daughter’s home in Coldspring, TX. She was the eldest daughter of “Red” and Bert Ray, who spent many years in Mt. Pleasant. She lost her husband, Jack, in 2016 after 68 years of marriage. She had said that her goal in life was that she “leave the world in a better place than she found it”.... and we think she did that! She will be remembered for the sparkle in her eyes and her beautiful smile, and she touched a lot of people! Come celebrate her life with us at the First United Methodist Church in Hooks, on Thursday, April 1, at 2PM. Although she loved flowers, donations to the church would be preferred (Hooks United Methodist Church, 121 Roosevelt Rd., Hooks, TX 75561). See you there!
