June 10, 1934 - April 8, 2021
On Thursday, April 8, 2021, James Daniel Werner, went home to be with the Lord at the age of 86. James (Jim) was born on June 10, 1934, in Houston, TX, to James Werner and Ella Mae Reagan. He was raised in Houston, TX, and graduated from Reagan high school. On August 24, 1957, he married the love of his life, Dolores Thibodeaux, Crowley, LA, and they were together for 56 years. They raised three daughters, Lisa, Carla, and Lori. He was preceded in death by Dolores. His only brother, John C. Werner, Houston, TX, passed in 2020. One of his greatest joys was having his family and friends together at his home. He loved hunting, fishing, and of late riding his lawnmower and taking pride in his daily well-manicured lawn. He was known for telling jokes and having the gift of gab. When asked, how are you? - “I’ve been better, but I can’t remember when?” Always ready to give you his opinion and explain how to do everything (his way of course). Jim is survived by his children, Lisa Werner (husband Robert Edwards, Jr.), Carla Hart, and Lori Werner; three grandchildren, Samantha Cragin, Ashlyn Meeks (husband Todd Meeks), and Kelsey Craig (husband Zach Craig); and four great-grandchildren, Kaden Cragin, Kinslee Cragin, Kendall Craig, and Kolby (KJ) Meeks. A graveside service will be held on Tuesday, April 13, 2021 at 2:00 PM at Eternal Hills Memory Gardens, Snellville, GA. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital: https://www.stjude.org/donate/donate-to-st-jude.html Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at www.wagesfuneralhome.com for the Werner family. Tom M. Wages Funeral Service, A Family Company, 3705 Highway 78 West, Snellville, GA 30039 (770-979-3200) has been entrusted with the arrangements.
