Betty Jean Bowers left this life on Aug. 25, 2014, after an absolutely wonderful 83 years. She was born on Sept. 16, 1930.
“Morsey,” (her family – grandmother name) was a woman with an endless grace, kindness and love that she shared with all that she knew. We have all been blessed with her presence and spirit. Memories will bring smiles, stories and laughter.
Betty set a high bar for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren to aspire.
Morsey, each one of us is eternally grateful for your unconditional love and gentle prodding; you have taught us well and are our family’s beacon. We will try to carry forward your positive light.
Morsey left behind children and spouses: Kay and Joe Sleeth, Pam and Larry Tokaz, Rex and Kathy Bowers; grandchildren: Megan and Chris Chrisman, Ashley and Eric Walker, Conor and Amber Tokaz, Molly Tokaz, Amanda and Tyler Rabun, Hunter Bowers and Trevor Bowers; and great-grandchildren Caleb, Logan, Kendall and Kate Walker, Harper Morsey Tokaz, born last week and Parker Laurence Chrisman being born this week!
This is only the immediate family, and there are so many other family members and friends that we would love to list – each of you held such a special place in Morsey’s heart. Thank you all.
We were not ready to see you go, and guess we never would want to say goodbye to you. May your next journey be filled with the light and love.
So many things to say about you, so many lives you touched, but it is your unconditional love for each person you interacted with that sets you apart. What a gift to have had you as a mom, grandmother and friend.
May God hold you in the Palm of His Hand as y’all walk toward Eternity.
In lieu of flowers, Betty would prefer you donate to your favorite charity. One of her most meaningful places would be to the Youth Ministries Martindale Methodist Church (she did love you young people so very much).
Viewing and family visitation will be Sunday, Aug. 31, 2014, from 5 – 7 p.m., at McCurdy Funeral Home on 105 E. Pecan St. Funeral services will be held at First United Methodist Church, 313 W. San Antonio St., Lockhart, on Monday, Sept. 1 at 11 a.m., with grave services following.
The Family invites everyone to join them at lunch following grave site services at Northside Grocery Hall, 201 N. Main St. for stories, food and drink as we join in celebrating Betty.
