Share This Obituary

Pertrice Worley Demberg, 69, was born on June 29, 1947 to P.C. Worley M.D. and Syble Harris Worley in Shreveport, Louisiana where she was raised and graduated from C.E. Byrd High school in 1965.
She graduated from LSU in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in 1969. She will receive her 50 year Golden Arrow with Pi Beta Phi posthumously this year in Corpus Christi, Texas. She was a sustaining member of the Junior League of Houston and Tyler, Texas.

Pertrice Worley Demberg passed away following complications from elective surgery on October 13, 2016 at Doctors Regional Medical Center in Corpus Christi, Texas. Pertrice will be deeply missed by many loving friends and relatives who delighted in her marvelous storytelling and rich sense of humor. She had the innate ability to transform an ordinary story into an extraordinary one. Pertrice had a unique zest for life and a fond, caring manner with many friends from all walks of life, who normally would not mix. We sometimes thought she could turn the meticulous into the ridiculous, as she would tend to her daily regimens. She lived a life "well lived." Although a private person, she enjoyed socializing with her card playing girlfriends and friends who shared her Spiritual Way of Life.

Pertrice was truly happy and content sharing fishing adventures and living a "perpetual vacation" with her loving husband Dr. Jim in their condo on Padre Island in Corpus Christi.

She loved to "catch and release" as well as enjoy "the big ones" in the pan straight out of the water. If you stood for any length of time in the checkout line, you would think she was your best friend forever. Pertrice was sweet and kind and had a unique outward and inward beauty. Truly an original! She was a gentle magnolia from the Old School. Pertrice could cut those baby blue eyes to the side and you would know exactly what she was thinking without her saying a word.

Pertrice is survived by her husband James H. Demberg MD. of Corpus Christi, Tx; daughter, Shandice Gonzalez of Dallas, Texas.; grandchild, Leal Gonzalez of Waxahachie, Tx. and a small extended family of various relatives and in-laws.
Special friends, Linda Bayer and Don Johnson of Rockport, TX, Karen Baker of Padre Island, TX, and a lifelong bond with Susan Broyles of Shreveport, LA. unbroken for 65 years.

A Graveside Service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 22, 2016 at Forest Park Cemetery, 3700 St. Vincent Ave, Shreveport, LA. According to her personal choices, she will be buried next to her late father P.C. Worley MD and other members of the Worley family.

A celebration of her Spiritual Way of Life will be held at All Saints Episcopal Church, 3026 S. Staples St, Corpus Christi, TX. on Saturday, November 5, 2016 at 2:00 p.m.

In Lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charity that best reflects her enduring Spiritual Way of Life since March 27, 1981.
