To Our Friends and Family
In Loving Memory

Mary EsclavonMary Esclavon, age 93, died Friday, Aug. 24, 2018, in Mount Vernon, Tex. She is survived by her husband of 61 years, J.D. Esclavon, daughters, Joyce Cardinal of Mount Vernon, Janie Esclavon of Euless, Tex., Annett Esclavon of Grapevine, Tex., Jean Lamborn of Grapevine, sons-in-law, Frank Cardinal and Gary Lamborn and grandchildren, Shala Anderson of Mansfield, Tex., Jacqui and Matthew Lamborn of Grapevine, Tex., and great grandchildren Savannah and Jack Anderson.
Mrs. Esclavon was born on Dec. 11, 1924, in Charenton, La., to Ernest and Eva Comeaux, the youngest in her family with brother Earl and sisters Elise and Ella Mae. Her family moved to Galveston, Tex., and then to Texas City where she became head of the Water Department.
After a successful career, she married J.D. Esclavon on May 21, 1957, and gained two wonderful daughters, Joyce and Janie. She and J.D. had two additional daughters, Annette and Jean, and raised them in Arcadia, Tex., and Canton City, Colo., where they owned the Bel-Aire Motel and hosted many happy guests, as well as friends and family over the years. After retirement, they moved back to Texas City, and finally to Mount Vernon. Mary was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, aunt, friend, and faithful member of several churches throughout her life. She loved Jesus and going to church on Sunday.
She loved the color blue, traveling and exploring, and most of all, garage sales! Especially when she could find a good cook book. She was always young at heart. She was a kind, generous, loving soul who will be greatly missed by friends and family who loved her very much.
I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do now. Let me not defer or neglect it for I shall not pass this way again.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell
in the house of the Lord forever.                                                  ~ Psalm 23:6
