Photo by Tommie Caudell

Tommie (Attlesey) Caudell, born July 9, 1949 in Dallas, Texas, passed away on April 4, 2024, surrounded by loved ones. She was the daughter of Robert Shelton Attlesey and Eva Idell (Maxwell) Attlesey. Tommie was the beloved, loving wife of Louie Caudell for 54 years; a devoted mother to her daughter, Jennifer Caudell Schirato (Scott Moore); and sons, Stephen and David Caudell; a beloved grandmother of Alexandra, Ella, Jack, Lily, Olivia and Parker; and a caring mother-in-law to Beth Caudell. She was preceded in death by her sons, her parents and her sisters, Bobbie Bailey and Charlotte Thrasher. She was a graduate of Woodrow Wilson High School and attended what was then North Texas State University. Tommie was extremely creative and loved putting together events, at home or for public occasions, by coming up with a theme, decorating, preparing food, arranging flowers and otherwise bringing them to life. She also wrote poetry, with almost fifty poems to her name. She was selected to exhibit some of her work at a public event at the Old State House in Little Rock. Nothing meant more to her than her family. That extended to her ancestors, and she was a proud member of numerous genealogical societies. Tommie was known for her infectious laugh, loving kindness and beauty, both physically and in her soul. Tommie was the ultimate fun-loving grandmother, a fantastic cook and the kindest person most people will ever meet. She touched the lives of many and was always there to put a smile on the faces of those around her. Tommie will be deeply missed by all who knew her. A celebration of Tommie’s life will be held on Tuesday, April 23, 2024 at 2:00 PM at Reflections at Rest Haven Funeral Home-Rockwall Location.
