Margaret M. Sorey, 86, of Midland, Texas, passed away on November 23, 2017.
Margaret was born in Sampson County, North Carolina on August 22, 1931 to Earnie Warren and Myrtle M. Hall Warren. She married Herbert H. Sorey on December 27, 1953. They were married for 54 years at the time of his death in 2008.
Margaret was a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She loved singing hymns and playing the piano. She faithfully attended Greenwood Baptist Church as long as she was able. Margaret enjoyed cooking for her family, canning food from her garden, shopping, and traveling back home to see her family. She loved red birds, magnolias and jewelry. She always made sure every occasion was marked by a card or a package in the mail.
Holidays were a special time for family to gather and Christmas Eve will never be the same without her. Although she will be missed dearly, her family rejoices in knowing that her body has been restored and she is in the presence of her Father and all of her loved ones who've gone before.
Margaret is preceded in death by her husband and love of her life, Herbert; parents, Earnie and Myrtle Warren; and her sister, Kathleen Fann.
Margaret is survived by her son, Darrell Sorey of Midland; son, Harold Sorey and his wife Susan of Midland; granddaughter Kendra Carreon and husband Jonathan of Round Rock; granddaughter Courtney Kuykendall and husband Bryan of Midland; great-grandchildren Camryn Kuykendall, Jackson Carreon and Austin Carreon; brother Eugene Warren and wife Carolyn of Fayetteville, North Carolina; sister Annie Dean Warren and husband Howard of Fayetteville; and her long-time caregiver and friend, Sandra Cyphers of Midland.
The family will receive friends from 6-8 p.m. Sunday, November 26, 2017 at Ellis Funeral Home.
A graveside service will be held at 3 p.m. Monday, November 27, 2017 at Resthaven Memorial Park. Condolences may be offered at
