Theresa Marie Sorrells


Theresa Marie Sorrells, age 53, of Gladewater, passed away on July 17, 2023, in Longview. She was born on April 5, 1970, in Nebraska to Jerome and Doris (Caldwell) Kouma.

Theresa was witty, hilarious, and didn’t hold anything back. She liked her chickens and added some color to them every once and a while. She had two four-legged soul dogs “Bighead” and “Nugget”. Theresa could come up with the best names/nicknames for any and everything. She had the most infectious smile that would truly light up the room. She liked to get from A to B quick, fast, and in a hurry, with the best music coming through the speakers. She was generous and could talk to you about absolutely nothing at all. Theresa was a one-of-a-kind wife who made the best chicken fried steak, mashed potatos, and gravy. Above all her greatest loves were her two grandchildren. From building the coolest racetracks, to making the fastest toddler slide, it didn’t matter. Making a fort or being “Frankenstein Gigi”, she was there for those boys along with the rest of the family.

Theresa is survived by her husband Don Sorrells of Gladewater; son, Clint Sorrells; daughter, Shelby Rojas and husband Junior of Kilgore; two grandsons, Oliver and Owen Rojas; mother, Doris Caldwell; brothers, Michael Kouma and wife Kathy, Paul Kouma and wife Cindy, and Larry Kouma and wife Gina; sisters Linda Galloway and husband Kenny and Julie Mebane and husband Rusty; and brother-in-law, Dan Sorrells of Prichett.

She was preceded in death by her father, Jerome Kouma.
