Mygnonne Thomas Passed Away Yesterday (April 11 2010) Glen Rose

12 April 2010 at 12:53:18 PM

I walked into the Somervell County Commissioners Court and heard Judge Maynard telling someone something about Mygnonne Thomas. I asked him what he had said, as I thought I had heard him say Mygnonne died yesterday (Sunday). Yes, she did.

I feel pretty sad right now. I've known Mygonne since I started coming to City Council and in particular since 2007. She did the minutes and transcribed the audio of various meetings and made sure all the notices were done, corrected, up to date and posted. She also did the traffic tickets and handled customers and money. I'm sure she did other things, too, but those are the ones I know about. Besides that, she LOVED the internet and sent out funny or interesting emails regularly; there were quite a lot of people on her TO line so I know a lot of other people also enjoyed those emails.

One day this last year I walked into the city offices and she was wearing one of those contraptions that helps you breathe, that has a tank attached. She never complained, was matter of fact about wearing it, but that's when she stopped attending meetings -she told me she didn't want to distract anyone at the meetings because the machine clacked. I thought at the time that I admired her good attitude-she certainly had her share of health problems but she soldiered on through all of them.

Her doctor told her that she had to stop working, because she had congestive heart disease. She was such a dedicated workhorse that she was, for a short time, staying on to work part time. I think that's when her doctor laid down the law and said, No. Now. So she formally retired. 

I called her up at home last week to see how she was doing and we had a wonderful conversation. She continued to have a stoic attitude about her health, and she told me about various television shows she was enjoying watching, we discussed some books we enjoyed reading,  and that she was crocheting some blankets for others. She told me she was looking forward to spending a lot of time with her grandchildren.

I'm a little shocked that she passed on so quicky after retirement, because, despite her health problems, she was so alive. She had such a strong, humorous personality, told great stories, was really smart, and indeed, was and will continue to be one of my favorite people I've known.

Peggy Busch told me that she had donated her body to science and that a memorial for her will be on Wednesday, April 14th at 2:00 pm at Wiley Funeral Home. I wish hugs to all the ladies at the City Council who worked with her. And hugs to her family.

City Council will find another to tak her place in her job but she herself cannot be replaced by anyone. She had a unique personality and I loved her. The world is a sadder place today because she is gone.

P.S. Here's one of her jokes.

"A Texas Wife"

Three men married wives from different states.
The first man
married a woman from Michigan . He told
that she was to do the dishes and house cleaning.  
It took a
couple of days, but on the third day,
he came home to see a
clean house and dishes washed and put

The second man married a woman from Missouri . He gave
wife orders that
she was to do all the cleaning, dishes and
the cooking. The first day he
didn't see any results, but
the next day he saw it was better. By the
day, he saw
his house was clean, the dishes were done
and there was a
dinner on the table.  

The third man married a girl from  TEXAS .   He ordered her
to keep the house
cleaned, dishes washed, lawn mowed,
laundry washed, and hot meals on the
table for every meal.
He said the first day he didn't see
anything, the
day he didn't see anything but by the
third day, some of the
had gone down and he could see a little out of his
left eye, and his arm was
healed enough that he could fix
himself a sandwich and load the

UPDATE:Adding a few pics that were from the Memorial that Cathy T sent me. I took the liberty of putting them in photoshopping and cropping, etc a little bit. Myn was simply gorgeous!

Goodbye, My Friend.
