Beth Edwards - 08/14/1969 - 08/06/2018 - daughter, mother, grandmother, friend and animal lover lost her battle due to complications of lung cancer and has crossed over to the rainbow bridge.  Waiting to meet her will be Lewis "Daddy Shue" and Corine "Granny" Edwards, Inez "Mamaw" Clark along with Myrtle, Lester, Kota, George, Bridgette, Mollye among her beloved dogs and Honey, Joe, Mac, Bert among her beloved cats.  Beth wanted no fuss, no funeral, just to have a party and tell stories.  Beth is survived by her father and step-mother, Joe Edwards and Caroline Fralia; her mother and step father, Toni and Bill Pierce; her daughter Jessye Edwards; her friends Shellie Griffin and Vicki McClure and countless others and her pride and joy, grand-daughter Aurora Ann Edwards.

Beth spent 20 years as an LVN specializing in geratrics, then retired and went to work for the Humane Society of North Texas, as she loved to help, as she put it, "broken, little dogs".  She is survived by her 3 dogs, Granny, Izzy and Phyllis and her 3 cats, Ewe, JellyBean and Jeff.

Beth was a member of The International Cat Association (TICA) since the mid 1980's, showing many different breeds of cats and taking that feline knowledge with her into the rescue community with education, providing breed seminars to increase awareness to get more cats out of shelters.  She belonged to cat clubs in Lousiana and Texas, most recently Ft Worth Feline Fanciers.

In Memory Of Mr. & Mrs. Earnest Grismore's daughter:

Was born September 9, 1966 to Earnest & Mary Grismore in Aberdeen, Maryland. She was a blessing to us. She loved to laugh, smile and help people in need at an early age. Dorothy received the Lord at an early age, she was also a great CNA for 32 years. 
Dorothy later married & also spent her time raising her 3 daughter's: Lydia, Britinee & Christina. Her siblings she was close to: Floyd Bizer, Patricia Burton-Onuoha, James Burton Jr., Tina Gamble, Karolyn Grismore, Pamela Grismore-Bennett, Sheryl Grismore-Attaway & David Grismore. Dorothy also had 6 grandchildren, whom she would give the world. 

We all believe she's In The Presence Of Jesus & God.
"Dorothy Jean; We all will miss your smiles and memories you shared with us all." Enjoy your peaceful rest. IN JESUS NAME AMEN!!!!!

On July 28, 1946, a new bundle of joy entered the world, Laura Constance Lind, more commonly known to her friends and family as “Koni”. She grew up in various households due to her parents’ divorce and her mother's career as a lounge singer and actress. After graduating from high school she started college studying child education. It was then that she met the love of her life, Kenneth Hollerich. They married on June 25th, 1966.

As a homemaker and military wife, Mom was an accomplished cake decorator, seamstress and dance instructor. She always said that the thing she was most proud of is her four kids, Tammera, Tina, Tary and Tony. Mom also participated in many of the events of her kids such as, girl scouts, boy scouts, Sunday school teacher, softball, baseball, cheerleading and swimming coach. As a girl scout leader she had the honor of welcoming President Ford to Elemendorf Air Force Base. While moving to several different bases, she went back to school and began her teaching career. Mom spent the next 33 years positively impacting hundreds of children. One of her greatest legacies was knowing that the impact was not only to the children she taught but also future generations. Her passion as a gifted and talented instructor was evident in her innovative teaching style, keeping her kids engaged and enhancing their passion for learning. She was honored to join one of her students who received Presidential recognition and she met yet another President – Bill Clinton.

After retiring, Mom continued her passion for sewing and crocheting. Many have had the pleasure of staying warm from one of her wonderfully crocheted blankets. She also loved her embroidery machine, creating matching towel sets, more blankets and personalized clothing.

By far Mom’s most favorite times was being surrounded by her family. Whether camping, barbecuing, eating turkey on Thanksgiving or opening gifts on Christmas morning, Mom was most happy surrounded by her husband of 52 years, 4 children and 5 grandchildren. The best thing that she left behind for us is her example of loving unconditionally and keeping family close.

But greater than the sorrow from her death is the joy that she has spread to all. Just as she guided each of her students, her wisdom and love will continue to guide each one of her children and grandchildren for generations to come.

Linda Gayle Vosbury was born on October 31,1949 to Billie Fay Morris and John Blasingame. In her early teens she began an amazing musical career recording for Columbia and Mega Records. She also went on to be the national spokesmodel for Cummins. Her music and her beauty took her on an incredible journey through the beginning of her life. Traveling and living in some of the most beautiful places in the world like Juno,Alaska and working with artist including Jimmy Dean and Charlie Daniels.

Her greatest acheivment in life and what she was most proud of was having her two daughters Amanda and Allison. At 37 and 39 years old when she had them, she still had enough energy and spunk to raise her two girls with so much love and happiness. No one could have done it better! She was the most kind and special person you would ever meet, full of life and wonderful stories to tell.

Most of all she was a FIGHTER. She fought a good fight with her battle with cancer to the very end and we take comfort in knowing that her pain is now gone. We hope you rest easy now, side by side in heaven with the love of your life B.J. Vosbury. We love you to the moon and back.

Jimmy Dale Elkins

Jimmy Dale Elkins was born on July 27, 1953 to Gene and Adeene Elkins in Texarkana, Arkansas. He came home to Texas Aug 1 of 1953 and lived out his life here. He was preceded in death by his soul mate Patricia, his mother Adeene, father Gene and his nephews Kenny and Phillip. Jimmy was survived by his children Dylan (Vanessa), Robin (Mike), Ashley (Danny) and Jason; his sisters Dian and Phyllis; brother in law William; his grandchildren Noah, Landry, Jasey, Jakob, Braden, Arjun, Navi, Patrick, James, Jaxon, Lyric, Patricia, Denise and Elliott; and many beloved relatives and friends. Jimmy served in the United States Army from August 18, 1971-August 20, 1973 where he was a tank mechanic, gunner and driver. He received the National Defense Service Medal and Marksman M16. He was especially proud to have been a care taker of General Patton’s Museum. Jimmy took great pride in his service and was a true patriot.

When Jimmy was 12 years old he had a dream of a beautiful lady on a swing. He knew he would marry her someday. Years later his good friend Butch introduced him to his sister Patty and she was the girl from his dream. They were married less than 3 months later on June 23, 1980. Together they raised 4 children: Jason, Ashley, Robin and Dylan. Through their example they taught their kids what faithfulness, commitment and perseverance are. They were married over 31 years and had reached the point in their marriage where they made each other laugh all day and could read each other like a book, they weathered many storms in their life together and faced them all and came out stronger for them. They were devoted to one another and to their children and grandchildren.

Jimmy was the best dad/daddy and all 4 of his kids looked up to him and were blessed to have him. He taught them what sacrifice and hard work are. He was a friend to his many nieces and nephews and was the best listening ear. He loved his parents and sisters and looked up to them. To him, his in-laws were true family and great friends and he was proud to be part of their lives.

It is impossible to consolidate the essence of a man into a few short words. Jimmy was a quiet man with a big laugh. He always had a joke, a tidbit from the news or a song to share. He kept to himself but loved to visit, talk and listen to music with his loved ones. He kept up with his good friends and their regular phone calls were a highlight of his days. Jimmy was very handy and could fix most things. He loved music, cars, nonfiction and historical books, the Texas coast, and playing guitar. He loved having his family over and watching the grandkids run around. That meant everything to him. Jimmy had become a pro at Wii Golf. 

He started playing with his son in law Danny but quickly became the best golfer in the family. He loved TCU baseball and the Dallas Cowboys.

April 20 of this year Jimmy was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer with metastasis to the brain. He underwent brain surgery on April 23 and began radiation in May. He decided to stop treatment and go home to be with his family. Throughout his illness, he never complained once, he bore everything with a quiet resolve that has left us in awe. Jimmy affirmed his belief and faith in God and asked to be baptized, and he was. He died at home surrounded by his children. The last words he heard were words of love and he was at peace.

Jimmy will be memorialized Sat June 9th at 2pm at 3816 Chestnut St. Ft. Worth, TX 76137. He will be buried with full military honors on Weds June 13, 2018 at DFW National Cemetery 2000 Mountain Creek Parkway Dallas, TX 75211. It is very important to arrive several minutes early as the cemetery has many funerals per day and they keep a tight schedule. In his memory and honor and in lieu of flowers, we encourage you to give what you can to the homeless or a struggling young family.

Jennifer is preceded in death by her parents,  Modesta Ingram Snell and William (Allison) Snell.  Jennifer is succeeded by her brother, Jeff Snell, cousins Kelly Pursley, Kevin Ingram and Krista Ingram and Uncle George and Aunt Janie, Uncle Gibby and other extended family members.  She is also succeeded by "framily" members that include Brian Davis of Tadotsu, Japan, Paul Fierro, Julie (Marks) Jackson, Shana (Pritchard) and Karl Rose and Sandra Parker of the DFW area and Katy (Pogue) Sturch of Hampton, Virginia.  Jennifer was loved and cared for by her longtime Care Attendant, Velma Sherman, with organizational assistance from Kandi Hatch of Max and Mollie Barnett Apartments and Stacey Fraser of Easter Seals of North Texas.

Jennifer was born in on November 26, 1971 and grew up in Midland, Texas attending public school.  At Alamo Jr. High, she (and soon-to-be best friend, Paul) selected trombone as their instrument of choice.  She had leadership and music in her blood, and in her Junior and Senior Years, Jennifer served as the Drum Major of the Mighty Rebel Band of Robert E. Lee High School in Midland Texas.  She earned several "1" ratings at UIL Solo and Ensemble contests was also selected for the All-City, Regional and Area selected bands.  Jennifer was also active in the German Club, winning several awards at Texas Association of German Students competitions.

Jennifer followed her love for music to West Texas A&M (with best friend, Katy) and began studying Music Therapy.  In her second year there, Jennifer was diagnosed with a brain tumor and this began a  25+ year struggle with it, the treatments for it and all of its aftereffects.  After the first surgery and with the help of a former bandmate and friend (Denise O'Guinn Mc Dowell,) Jennifer was assisted in her recovery/rehabilitation despite paralysis of her right side.  She later returned to Midland and Midland College where she resumed taking foreign language, Art and computer classes.  She was also active with Grace Presbyterian Church.

Jennifer moved to Fort Worth, Texas in 2007.  There she was active in pancake breakfasts, movie afternoons, putting together puzzles with "Momma Bertha," studying her Bible, completing Word Search pages, listening to music and going on casino trips.  Like her father, Jennifer also expressed her artistic side through painting, drawing and creating in Art classes.  She enjoyed outings and get-togethers with family (Ingram cousins from Abilene and Massachusetts) and friends (Barbara Drake Helmink and Bonnie Drake, Cindy Reid and Pam Cooper) and Care Attendants (Karen and Bobbie.) 

As a child, Jennifer was a Bluebird and an active participant in Camp Fire.  With help of her longtime leader, Sheila Leggett, and Club members,  Gana Leggett, Sara Coffey and Margaret (Peggy) Coffey, Jennifer earned The WoHeLo Award (work, health love,) which is the highest achievement for youth and offers opportunities for personal development, leadership and advocacy.

Jennifer was an animal lover, and when she could, she donated to the World Wildlife Federation and to the SPCA.  She loved her childhood dogs, Sarge and Barney and she loved her cats, Sadie, Daffodil and Belle, who provided her entertainment and companionship when living in Midland and Fort Worth.

Jennifer loved Snoopy and the whole Peanuts gang, decorating her room with these characters.  In the words of Charles M. Schulz, Peanuts creator, " In life it's not where you go, it's who you travel with."  Good advice then and now from Jennifer's 1990 Mighty Rebel Band Senior Will, "be excellent to each other."

Poem for Joe Louis Nunez
A simple man stands here today. 
The truth we all have seen. 
My life was short but memories long.
And now leave all with me.
My wife I loved and cherished too.
Has always comfort me.
She never failed or left my side.
And always watched over me.
My children wish this day today, 
Would never be today. 
But I have loved them every day.
Especially on this day.
And the day I pass away.
It will rain this day.
the tears of joy 
from the angels cry.
As I am home to stay.

Esther Barrios, age 86, an educator, died Thursday February 08, 2018, after a valiant battle against cancer. She taught for more than 55 years—a journey that began at the early age of 13, when she won a widely coveted national teaching scholarship. Soon after graduating, she launched her career teaching indigenous children in the mountainous Guatemalan region of Momostenango. Her teaching adventures took her to elementary schools in Honduras and Costa Rica, as well as colleges in Puerto Rico and Michigan. Additionally, she performed Administrative work as Principal of K through 12 schools in El Salvador and Guatemala. Throughout it all, her heart was in the classroom, and she spent her last twenty years of teaching in the Fort Worth Independent School District, starting at Denver Elementary School and finishing at M.G Ellis Elementary School, where she was an inspiration to kindergarteners and first graders. A few years before her retirement, she was selected as “Teacher of the Year” in recognition of what she had accomplished in the classroom.

She leaves a loving husband, three caring sons and seven extraordinary grandchildren.

A memorial service to celebrate the remarkable life of Esther Barrios will take place on Saturday February 24 at 3 p.m. in the Arlington Seventh-day Adventist Church located at 4409 Pleasantview Dr., Arlington, Texas 76017
