Beverly June Parker Rankin

Jun 16, 1933 - Feb 19, 2024

Bryan, TX

In the early afternoon of Monday, February 19, 2024, our sweet Mom, Beverly June Parker Rankin, passed away peacefully at her home in Bryan, Texas, while surrounded by her loving family. Mom hoped to make her 91st birthday, but in late November 2023, she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Mom was born on Friday, June 16, 1933, to Elgerine Markowsky and Eunis Lee Parker in the front bedroom of her maternal grandmother’s home in Harlingen, Texas. Her Aunt Claire named her and she grew up with various nicknames, “BJ,” “Cottontop,” and “Beaver.” As a child, she attended Grace Lutheran Church. Since her Mom was often sick, a friend, Ms. Altus, took her and her brothers to church. Her Mom always tied money into a white handkerchief so she wouldn’t lose it before church. She lived on Orange Heights Road until she was 12 years old, then moved from town life to the dramatic change of country life in Rangerville, Texas. Mom graduated from San Benito High School in May 1951. Mom married the love of her life, Joe F. Rankin on October 4, 1951, and had four children: Karen (Kerry) Dean, Scott Rankin (ex-wife JoAnn), Patti (Al) Pierce, and Paula (Bill) Wise; eight grandchildren: Laura (Brett) Walker, Colby (Linsey) Wise, Jason (Caitlyn) Jacobus, Zachary (Katie) Wise, Shane (Jeannie) Rankin, Mallory (Thomas) Flippin, Victoria Rankin, and Bailey Joseph Rankin; and 14 great-grandchildren. In 1953, Mom and Dad moved to Texas City where Dad got a job at Texas City Refinery (TCR). Then in 1955 they moved to La Marque (LM) and became members of the First Baptist Church (40 years). Mom was a stay-at-home mother until the twins were nine years old. Most of her career was spent as an assistant credit manager at W. A. Kelso Building Materials in Galveston, Texas. When the kids were young, Mom was part of a local “welcome wagon,” for the LM community. As most of her friends know, she loved meeting new people, and made friends easily. Over the years, she was a Juniors Girl Scout leader, team softball mom, secretary for the LM Girls Softball Association, secretary of the LM Garden Club, member of the LM Clean City Commission, secretary of LM Crime Stoppers (20 years), and secretary of the TC / LM Chamber of Commerce – Golden Division. After moving to League City in 1995, Mom and Dad became members of Bay Area (First Baptist) Church, where she was secretary for their “Jolly 60s” Sunday school group. She was also on the board of the Landing Subdivision HOA. In 2018, Mom moved to Bryan, living next door to Karen and Kerry. She quickly became an involved member at Central (Baptist) Church in College Station. Mom lived in Bryan until the time of her death. She was preceded in death by her husband of 60 years, her parents, and brothers, Kenneth and Bill Parker. The family would like to thank the precious hospice workers of Amedisys Hospice for their loving care of our mom during the various stages of her end-of-life care. Their care for our mom was such a blessing. A visitation will be held on Sunday, March 3, 2024, from 5:00 – 7:00 PM at the Crowder Funeral Home, located at 851 FM517 Road West, in Dickinson, Texas. A memorial service will be held on Monday, March 4, 2024, at Bay Area Church located at 4800 West Main Street in League City, Texas. A short time to visit with family will be held prior to the memorial, from 9:15 – 9:55 AM. The memorial will be held from 10:00 – 11:15 AM. Pastor Tim Skaggs from Central Church in College Station, Texas, will preside over the ceremony. The pallbearers will be Kerry Dean, Bill Wise, Colby Wise, Jason Jacobus, Zachary Wise, Shane Rankin, and Bailey Joseph Rankin. Honorary pallbearers will be Pete Rygaard, Al Pierce, Mike Pishon, and Jay Reddell. An intimate graveside ceremony will be held after the memorial for the family only. Condolences can be sent to the family through the Crowder Funeral Home website (www.crowderfuneralhome.com/category/obituaries), or you can mail cards to “The Rankin Family” in c/o Paula Wise, 3515-B Longmire Drive, Box 233, College Station, TX 77845.

Box 290247, Kerrville, TX 78029 In closing, Mom would like to leave you with her favorite Bible verse: “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations; I will be exalted in the earth!” (Psalm 46:10 NKJV)

Betty Fitzjerrell

May 16, 1933 - Feb 04, 2024

location-icon

Bryan, TX

Betty Fitzjerrell died peacefully on February 4, 2024, in Bryan, Texas. Betty was born May 16, 1933, in Morganton, AR. She was a 60-plus-year member of the Sylvan Hills Church of Christ where she taught Sunday school classes, worked as the church secretary, and supported the church, its work, and its members in numerous ways. She was known for being incredibly gracious, always showing her gratitude for those around her, including frequently thanking those who helped care for her in her later days. She was a gifted seamstress who made many of her own clothes and also made beautiful clothing for her daughter, Becky, and her granddaughter, Mary Kathryn. She once spent a week teaching Mary Kathryn to sew, and together the two of them made a dress Mary Kathryn wore often and proudly. Betty also loved gardening, a hobby she shared with her son, Mark. Even into her 80s, she drove Mark’s riding lawn mower and also rode jet skis with him when she visited him in Texas. She was a surprisingly competitive player of dominos, and she also enjoyed baking, especially with her grandchildren when they were young. Her breakfasts of scrambled eggs cooked in bacon drippings served with biscuits and gravy were delicious. In later years, she loved watching movies on the Hallmark channel. She is survived by her children, Becky and Mark; Mark’s wife Teri; her granddaughter, Mary Kathryn and Mary Kathryn’s husband, Chris Vinyard; as well as her great-grandchildren: Lane Wells (12), Wells Vinyard (10), Beck Vinyard (8), and Mary Coco Vinyard (5). She is reunited in death with her husband, Robert Fitzjerrell; her grandson, George Macfadden (Mac) Wells Jr.; her younger brother, Billy J. Smartt; her parents, Marvin Franklin Smartt and Albert “Bertie” Harmon Smartt; and her son-in-law, George Macfadden Wells. Betty’s family would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the staff of The Isle at Watercrest (Bryan, TX) and Acura Hospice (Sugarland, TX) for the loving care they showed Betty in her final days.
