Wlison

Voe Elizabeth Wlison was born in Liberty, Texas on September 17th, 1920, the fourth of six children of Ross Gerald Partlow and Voe Botkin Calhoon Partlow, all of them sixth-generation Texans

She was born in the front bedroom of the 1913 R.G. Partlow home on Grand Avenue, the same place where she died on January 28, 2020.
Elizabeth—Lib as she was known in the family—was blessed with the sweet nature that she kept throughout her 99 years and brightened everyone she knew . She was baptized in the Liberty Methodist Church and went through school in Liberty, graduating from Liberty High when she was 16 years old as there were only eleven grades then. After graduating, she went to college, first at Southwestern University in Georgetown, then finishing at the University of Texas where she graduated with a degree in Business Administration.  After a brief stint working for Humble Oil in Houston, she met the love of her life, Howard Wilson, at the wedding of her older sister Helen, and they were married in the Liberty Methodist Church in 1943. After their marriage, she spent almost 40 years traveling with her husband as he pursued a career with Texaco--she liked to say they moved fifteen times--from Chicago to Louisiana, New York to Houston, and even Trinidad, West Indies—until they retired to Houston in 1980. 

They celebrated their 61st anniversary in 2003, and Howard passed away in 2005. After her husband’s death, she moved back to Liberty where she lived with her sister Helen until her death.  

During her life, as she and Howard continued to move across the country, she was a faithful member of several congregations, teaching Sunday School and being active in Women’s Circles.  In 1965 she was inducted into P.E.O., a service society which remained an important part of her life, and in 2015 she was honored as a 50-year P.E.O. “Golden Girl.”  But throughout her life, family—both immediate and extended—took first place. She was always present for her husband and children, and as an energetic housekeeper and a talented and enthusiastic—“gourmet level”—cook, she did all in her power to “keep the home fires burning” and once a granddaughter arrived, they bonded immediately, and became inseparable. As a prolific letter writer, she did her part to keep the extended family connected as well, and was always grateful for the chance to visit siblings and cousins during her travels, making her a beloved family figure throughout her lifetime. 

Lib was proceeded in death by her parents; her loving husband Robert Howard Wilson; brothers Ross Gerald Partlow, Sam Partlow; sisters Rose Marie Partlow, GeraldinePartlow Young and Helen Partlow Fairbrother. She is survived by her daughter Jeanette of Liberty; son Bob and his wife Dawn; granddaughter Claire and her wife Haley and great-granddaughter Archer all of Portland, Oregon; eleven nieces and nephews and numerous great nieces and nephews. As the last surviving child of R.G. and Voe Partlow, with her death a generation passes away, but she will be lovingly remembered by everyone who knew her.
The family would like to thank all of Lib’s wonderful and loving care-givers throughout the years. Your love and kindness will never be forgotten.

Friends are invited to visit with the family from 6-8pm on Friday, January 31, 2020 in the chapel at Allison Funeral Service, 1101 N. Travis Liberty, Texas 77575. Funeral Services will be held at 10:30am on Saturday, February 1, 2020 at First United Methodist Church 539 Main St. Liberty, Texas 77575 with Reverend Josh Hale officiating.

“I’m Free” 
Don’t grieve for me, for now I am free
I’m following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard him call;
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work and play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way;
I found that place at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void.
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared a laugh, a kiss;
Ah yes, I too will miss.
Be not burden with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I savoured much;
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.
Perhaps my time seems all too brief;
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now,
He set me free.  

John 14: 1-2
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?”

Always providing, loving, kind hearted and gentle. Always there to give you a big hug. He loved his lord and savior and grew closer and closer to his lord everyday.

Robb

Sharon Rose Robb of Dayton, Texas passed from this world into her makers arms on December 4th, 2019.

She was born in Wellborn, Texas to Rose Edward and Emma Logan on November 9th, 1940. Sharon grew up there and graduated from A&M Consolidated High School in 1959. She lived a very long full life and putting that into a short story is an impossible task.

Sharon had a huge heart and helped anyone she could. She was sweet to her very core and very rarely said the word no.

She loved going to the beach, on cruises, the casinos occasionally, and playing cards with the girls late into the night before she was not able to anymore. Every morning found her up with a cup of coffee in her hand and gameshow network on the TV.

One of her favorite stories to tell was meeting Eddie Rabbit at a fair. Now, she was a huge fan of Eddie Rabbit, so it made her day when he kissed her on the cheek then on the lips.  Considering she told that story to everyone throughout the years, I think it made not only her day but her lifetime!  

There is one more story that she was proud to tell of her high school sweetheart, who was also her first husband, Alvin “AB” Brewer. When they graduated high school, he wrote in her annual that he would always take care of her. Their marriage may not have worked out, but throughout the years with many ups and downs, she was proud to tell everyone that he stayed true to his word and he took care of her when she anytime she needed help.   

Sharon is preceded in death by her parents, two brothers, one sister, and one great grandchild.

She is survived by brother Theron “TR” Logan, sons Alvin “Peanut” Brewer, Roger Dale Brewer, and Russell “Rusty” Robb, many grandchildren, great grandchildren and numerous other family and friends.

She was loved by many and will never be far from our thoughts and hearts. May she rest in peace with her Lord and watch over us for the remainder of our days.
