Obituary

Alison Keith Berry went home to be with his Lord on Saturday, December 21, 2019 after a brief illness. He was born January 12, 1944 in Cordell, OK to George Dillon Berry and Leota Marie (Etris) Berry.

After graduating from Cordell High School in 1961, he and his high school sweetheart, Edna Fay Kious, came to Waxahachie, TX to go to Southwestern Bible College (now Southwestern Assemblies of God University). In between semesters, they were married in Cordell on January 27, 1962. They returned to live in Waxahachie where, in August 1963, they became parents to Sandra Fay. Keith received his ministerial license so he could fill the need for a little church in Frost, TX when the congregation voted for him to become their pastor. He would later be fully ordained on June 8, 1967. While there, he and Edna met Jimmy and Florence Rogers from Corsicana, TX, who would become their “adopted parents”. In January 1966, David Keith was born into the family and in August of that year, God set things in motion for them to move to Corsicana, finding a house only three houses down from the Rogers, where Keith peacefully passed 53 years later.

Keith was a hard worker all of his life, working at Adams Hat Factory and as a route salesman for Pepsi Cola and Rainbo Bread. He also managed Sirloin Stockade before opening Berry’s Burger Inn. After getting out of the food business, he worked at K-Mart Distribution Center for 16 years before finally deciding that he could push a pencil a lot easier than he could move around entertainment centers, so he turned his side business of doing income taxes into his full time job. His business, through reputation and word of mouth, grew and overwhelmed his small home office, which allowed him to move Keith Berry Income Tax and Bookkeeping to its current location in downtown Corsicana over a decade ago, where his dream will continue.

Throughout his life, Keith was a willing servant as God utilized his unwavering faith and humility to minister wherever he was needed; in whatever capacity was required. He influenced many lives of the youth in Corsicana through coaching little league sports for a number of years. In November, as he realized what was believed to be minor health issues might be more, he decided to accelerate his retirement from years of pastoring First Assembly of God in Dawson, TX. Keith lived his life as a reflection of God’s love; whether behind a pulpit, a desk, on a field or in a hospital bed. Knowing his life was always his greatest testimony, he strived to deal with people and problems with the love and mercy with which he had been blessed.

He is survived by his wife of nearly 58 years, Edna Fay Berry of Corsicana; sister Phyllis Spoor and husband Jerry of Austin, TX; daughter Sandra Berry Green of Garland, TX, son David Keith Berry and wife Sherry of Corsicana; grandchildren David Michael Ray of Corsicana, Dillon Keith Berry of College Station, TX, Billy Trey Mize of Fort Worth, TX, and Breanna Mize of Corsicana. He is also survived by his brother-in-law James Kious and wife Mary of Moore, OK; sisters-in-law Arlena Hubbard of Port Huron, MI, Katheryn Rutherford of Sulphur Springs, TX, Virginia James and husband Weldon of Broken Bow, OK, and Linda Bennett of Moore, OK, as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

Visitation with the family will be on Friday, December 27, 2019 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at Corley Funeral Home. Services will be held at Corley Funeral Home Chapel on Saturday, December 28, 2019 at 10:00 AM with the Revs. Jarrett Daugherty and Mike Howell officiating. Burial will follow at Oakwood Cemetery. Pallbearers will be Jason Bennett, Bryan Bennett, Dwayne Robinson, Eduardo Diego, David Southwell and Randy Boaz.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to an organization near to Keith’s heart – Pleasant Hills Children’s Home, P.O. Box 1177, Fairfield, TX 75840, www.pleasanthillschildrenshome.org. An online guestbook is available at www.corleyfuneralhome.com and selecting the Keith Berry obituary.

I am soooooo sad to have heard this. Keith was a great man. He had done my taxes for YEARS, and always had a smile on his face. Even though I only saw him once a year, he will be greatly missed, that smile will be missed. I pray for peace for the family for their loss. Heaven received a wonderful angel.
