Reneatha DeEtte Golmon

Reneatha DeEtte (Little) Golmon, 93, of Waco, Texas and formerly of Beeville, Texas walked into the arms of Jesus Saturday, January 6, 2024.

Reneatha was born November 22, 1930, in Canadian, Texas to Eddie Presley Little and Oralee (Morehead) Little. She was a graduate of Canadian High School and then went on to graduate with a business degree from Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas. While attending Hardin-Simmons, Reneatha fell in love with one of their star football players. On August 15, 1953, she married Bill Golmon. Reneatha became a teacher and Bill became a coach. They were married almost 50 years, living in Big Spring, Grand View and finally retiring in Beeville, Texas.

Reneatha was a caring daughter, wife, mother, sister, aunt, and grandmother. She was a longtime member of the First Baptist Church in Beeville, and a part of the Watchcare program at First Baptist of Hewitt when she moved to Waco.

Reneatha loved to travel! She enjoyed seeing God’s creation everywhere. She loved to see leaves changing colors, waterfalls, snow covered mountains, beaches (from inside an air-conditioned building), and oceans. She LOVED cruises. Once, she even took her beloved caretaker and friend Jamie Perez, and her hairdresser Ducky Bledsoe! Even after her knees started giving out, she’d get on her scooter and she and Tony would travel the world.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Bill; her parents; and her sister, Georgia Mae Talley.

She is survived by her son, Tony Golmon of Waco who was the best caretaker in the world (his sister says); her daughter, Debra D’Herde and husband Ralph of Hewitt; her granddaughter, Christi Warwick and husband Jim of Hewitt; grandson, Case D’Herde of Hewitt; brother-in-law, Gene Golmon and wife LaJoyce of Dallas; two nieces; four nephews; and many wonderful friends.

Visitation will be held from 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday, January 13, at First Baptist Church in Beeville followed by the funeral service at 11 o’clock with Rev. Greg Traylor officiating.

Burial will be private. Pallbearers will be Roger Perkins, Billy Burris, Vic Barris, Chuck Knowlton, Richard Zander, Ronnie Gossett, John Bond and Bob Wingenter.

We would like to thank Dr. Sam Ralston and staff, Scott & White Medical Center-Hillcrest and St. Anthony’s for taking care of her while she was at their facilities. We’d also like to thank Gentiva Hospice, who was there for us at any time we needed them, day or night. Thank you for being so attentive to our wishes. Thank you, Brett, with “The Grandson Home Care.” You and your staff did an excellent job of taking care of our mother. Kelsey was a special bonus to us. Mother enjoyed teasing her and giving her a hard time. They became close buddies. Elizabeth Piech, we could never have done this without you! You have been with us since the beginning. You have put up with us and taught us so much! Thank you for your love and devotion to our mother. Ronnie Gossett, you became the 2nd best caregiver in the world when Tony needed to go out of town. You became her 3rd child, and you treated her like she was your own mother. Thank you for caring for her and being there for us all these years. We love you!
