Dora Lee Ervin passed away Thursday, Nov. 24, 2016. Dora Lee was born to Lawrence Lyle Hemphill and Thelma Ivy Baker Hemphill on Sept. 20, 1926, in Carney, Okla. After her high school years, and at the age of 20, she married Earl Hozy Ervin on Dec. 24, 1946, in Fort Worth. Dora Lee was a homemaker and a devoted stay-at-home mother. Earl and Dora raised their children here in Mansfield and made Mansfield home, however, because of Earl's employment with the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, the family moved around the southern part of the United States, which the family enjoyed. They did move to Little Rock, Ark., for a few years because of Earl's employment as well as Camp Polk in Leesville, La., at the end of Earl's tenure and return in the U.S. Army during the Cuban Missile Crisis. From Louisiana, Dora moved her family home to Fort Stewart, Ga., for two years of Earl's military service, before returning home to Mansfield. Earl's military commitment ended on Sept. 24, 1963. After Earl's passing on Dec. 6, 2009, Dora Lee moved to Dallas to be near her daughter, Connie. Dora Lee was preceded in death by her mother and father; husband, Earl; sister, Rexie Tidwell; daughter, Linda Susan Ervin Simmons; and son, Richard Michael Ervin. Survivors: Dora Lee is survived by her daughter, Connie Lee Givens, as well as Connie's husband, Glenn Clark; daughter-in-law, Margaret Ann Ervin, wife to Dora and Earl's deceased son, Richard Michael Ervin; grandchildren, Jason Simmons and wife, Mendy, Wendy Simmons Miller and husband, Ray, Rebecca Ervin Montgomery and husband, Ed, Natalie Brooke Givens and husband, Aaron Cole, Christa Ervin Brown and husband, Jesse; great-grandchildren, Ashley Miller, Caleb Simmons, John, Millie and Sadie Montgomery, Richard James Brown and Bennet Givens Cole; as well as many nieces and nephews.
