Gloria Yvonne Karr

April 27, 1937 ~ February 14, 2020 (age 82)


Gloria Yvonne Karr 82 of Odessa Tx was called home on Friday, February 14th.
She was born April 27 1937 to Raymond Vaughn and Eva Marie Westbrook in Menard Tx, where she later graduated from Menard High School in 1955.
On January 24 1959 she married the love of her life Joe R Karr of Odessa Tx, who remained her devoted husband until her passing.
Gloria had a flair for being creative. From knitting or quilting, or metal-working, making ceramics or building clocks, she loved using her artistic talents to make gifts for the people she loved. Her creativity and caring nature were also present in her kitchen. Nobody left her home without being well fed and knowing that they were loved.
Gloria was preceded in death by her parents Raymond and Eva Westbrook, her sons Raymond Thompson and Joe M Karr, and daughter Sharon Thompson, and is survived by her loving husband Joe R Karr and son Michael Karr of Odessa, sister Billie Morris of Incline Village NV, 4 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. All of whom will miss her dearly.
Services will be at Martinez Funeral home at 10am on Wednesday, February 19, with a brief service and burial to follow at 4pm in Menard Tx.
