Elmire Summers Cash, a young 90 years, departed this earthly world on Saturday, June 16, 2018, in Victoria, Texas due to a sudden illness.
Elmire was born October 8, 1927 in Cuero, Texas, to the late E. T. Sr. and
Albertine Summers. Mama married the late T.C. Sr. in 1948 and five children were born from this union. Children are Pam Beyer (Charlie) of Calallen; T.C. Jr. (Cindy) of Cedar Park; twins Claude (Kathy) of Bryan, and Claudia Burch (Charlie) of Cuero; and Renee Goetz (Kenneth) of Victoria.

family friends, Susie Sonntag and Jim Garcia, and her beloved Shih Tzu, Schatzi.
Preceding Elmire in death are her siblings E. T. Jr., Buddy Sr., Genevieve, and Paul Sr.
If you knew our mama well, you would know that she was strong-willed. Mama was of means but married an enlisted man for love. She had a book by Sarah Palin on her shelf right next to Brokeback Mountain. Mama was in DC for the Truman inauguration. In her 80's she went adventuring in Alaska. She gave the world artists, soldiers, sailors, nurses, actors, dancers, photographers, teachers and musicians. Mama finished giving on the afternoon of June 16, 2018.
