Emma Dell Elizabeth Guice Jurica was the daughter of Chester Elmore Guice and Ellis Elma Attaway. She was born on May 30, 1918 in Mississippi. She was also known as Emma Dell Guice; her granddaughter, Debra Gary Duhon, tells me she never liked the named Elizabeth. She went by Dell to all who knew her.

Dell had 11 siblings: Linnie Lea Guice, Maudie M. Guice (Douglas), Ada Gertrude Guice, Monroe Guice, Herman Guice, Columbus Guice, Jasper Adolphus Guice, Jessie E. Guice, Ira L. Guice, Dalton E. Guice, and Edna Mae Guice.

Dell was married a total of seven times according to family lore. Four of her husbands are named below; two remain unknown at this time. One other husband was reportedly either the father or brother of her son Junior Ray Gary's wife, Vanita Tenery. This husband's first name is unknown; he went by "Red" Tenery. The date of this marriage is also unknown.

Presumably somewhere between 1932 and 1934, Dell married Jodie Ray Gary. Together, they had one son: Junior Ray Gary. The date of their divorce is unknown at this time, though it may have been before 1940-- when Jodie enlisted in the US Army National Guard on November 25, 1940, he is noted as single without dependents.

About 1945 (presumed), she married James Elmer Wiginton. Together, they had three sons: Jerry E. Wiginton, James E. Wiginton, and Everett Eugene "Gene" Wiginton. Their date of divorce is unknown.

On March 15, 1966, Dell married Bennie Ad Amason in Brazoria County, Texas. There were no children born of this union. Their date of divorce is unknown.

On July 26, 1968, Dell married George Joe Jurica, also in Brazoria County, Texas. There were no children born of this union. Dell and George were still married at the time of his death in 1973, and it does not appear as though she remarried prior to her death on July 19, 1997 in Angleton, Texas. She is buried next to George at Angleton Cemetery.
