Veralene Allen Couts

Veralene Allen Couts, 75, of Honey Grove died Wednesday, April 22, 2014, at Texoma Medical Center of Bonham.

Sis. Veralene Allen Couts was born on August 17, 1939, to the late Julius Allen and Geneva Lee Allen in Honey Grove, Texas.

Veralene grew up in Honey Grove and graduated from Bralley High school.

Veralene was united in Holy matrimony to Tommie J. Couts on August 7, 1960, and was devoted to her husband for 54 years.

She was a very devoted and active member of Christian Chapel C.M.E. Church until she was called home. She loved her family, church family and the community; but most of all, she loved the Lord.

She enjoyed cooking and baking because it gave her great joy to prepare meals and to extend her missionary work through the community. Veralene provided a helping hand and prayer to anyone in need. She would always end her calls with "I love you."

Veralene leaves to cherish her memories her loving and devoted husband, Tommie J. Couts; mother Zelema Allen; daughters: Edna Couts of Detroit, TX, Tara Couts Bradley of Houston, TX; sons: Michael Couts of Honey Grove and Deric Couts of Detroit, TX; and, sisters: Beulah Perkins of Cooper, TX, Claudetta Allen Couts and Lee Ola Chaffin (James) of Honey Grove, TX; grandchildren: Brandon Couts (Euneke), Cameron Bradley, Tarrel Bateman, Jonathan Warren, Ethan Bateman, Keisha Cuba and Shearlene Duty; great-grandchildren Gabrielle Couts, Jasmine Bateman, Lance Bateman and Kaylee Bateman. She also leaves a host of nieces, nephews and other family and friends.

She was preceded in death by brothers: Julius Gene Allen and J.C. Allen; sisters: Ruby Adams and Ola Lee Shaw.
