Tommie Lee (Gardiner) Posey

Tommie Lee (Gardiner) Posey

October 5, 1929 — October 5, 2017

Tommie Lee (Gardiner) Posey, of Kingsland, Texas passed away Oct. 5, 2017. She was born to John Thomas and Annie Charlotta (Moore) Gardiner on Oct. 5, 1929, in LaVernia, Texas.

Tommie will be remembered most by her friends, family, and acquaintances as having a cheerful but feisty personality. As a child, she enjoyed gymnastics and performance roller skating. In her adulthood, she loved parties and having fun with her husband and friends.

She is remembered for always looking on the ground for coins that were face up (because face down was bad luck), her unmatched pickled watermelon rind, her “coffee” for the grandchildren that was mostly milk and sugar but made them feel grown up, and her winning attitude that wouldn’t allow the grand children to win a game just because they were children, which made them try harder.
