Hannemann, H. C.: Fredericksburg Standard - Radio Post; 29 August 2012
H. C. “Hans” Hannemann was born Sept. 6, 1916 at Cave Creek to Fred and Caecilia Sagebiel Hannemann. He attended school in Cave Creek and Fredericksburg and graduated from Texas Lutheran College in Seguin. He passed away on Sunday, Aug. 19, 2012, at Hill Country Memorial Hospital in Fredericksburg. In 1944, he married Dorthy Henke, the daughter of Max T. and Cora Henke. Together they raised three children: Helen, Mrs. Allen Rode; Linda, Mrs. Kenneth Lindig (deceased); and Dennis Hannemann. They have eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. Dorthy has been his strength and loving partner, assisting him in all his endeavors. In recent years, having lost his sight to macular degeneration, Hans called Dorthy his “right hand”, his chauffeur, and his “seeing eye”. Hans was a member of Zion Lutheran Church since 1924. He served as Sunday School Superintendent, Church Council, National Church Convention Delegate and treasurer of Lutheran Camp Chrysalis for over 18 years. For 55 years, he faithfully recorded the Sunday Worship Service and took the recordings to the nursing homes and shut-ins, and helped arrange to have the services broadcast over the radio. He was very active in the Lutheran Men in Mission, the Zion Men’s Breakfast group and helped to organize the Lutheran Fall Festival to support camping ministries. Hans became a Boy Scout in 1928 and continued to be active in scouting for over 70 years. He served as a scoutmaster, committeeman, district commissioner, district president and was scoutmaster for a troop that attended the National Scout Jamboree in 1950. He was a member of the Capitol Area Council Executive Board. Scouting awards include: Silver Beaver Award — 1949 Lamb Award — 1957 (1st in Texas and the 10th in the nation) — the highest award given to Lutheran Adult Church leaders. Award of Merit – 1972. Wood Badge – 1973. Hans was very proud to have Carl and Daniel, Adam and Allen (two grandsons and two great-grandsons) receive their Eagle Scout Award on the same day. In 1937, Hans went to work for an automobile dealership, which was the beginning of his life’s vocation. He obtained an interest in the company in 1942, and in 1953 he took over the dealership to be known as Standard Service Company. The dealership was located at 116 E. Main, and the used car lot was in the next block across from the courthouse, which is now a part of Market Square. In 1978, the family-owned dealership built a new facility on U.S. Highway 87 South. As a Dodge dealer, he received Chrysler Corporation’s most prestigious Five Star Award every year since 1970 until the dealership was sold to Immel Motors in 1989. The move from Main Street also marked the demise of the last sidewalk gas pumps in the State of Texas. During the war years, Hans received an appointment to Randolph Field, which was then known as the “West Point of the Air." However, obligations kept him home. So instead he flew to Kerrville where he instructed Naval Cadets in basic flight training. Only a highly skilled pilot was considered qualified to instruct our nation's aviators. In 1948, Hans was instrumental in securing the airport and property for the Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park (formerly known as Oak Crest Park.) In his honor, the airport terminal building bears his name. Hans was a retired member of the Fredericksburg Volunteer Fire Department having been active for over 30 years. He helped to organize the Gillespie County Volunteer Emergency Medical Service. Having held an EMT rating from the State Health Department, he became an American Red Cross First Aid instructor in 1939. Many Boy and Girl Scouts received their merit badges under his instruction, as well as area EMT and VFD members. He was also a lifetime honorary member of the Stonewall VFD because of his efforts in obtaining their charter and equipment. Hans was active as a Jaycee and served as a director with the Chamber of Commerce. He received the Outstanding Young Man of the Community Award in 1949, and Boss of the Year in 1959. In 1985, he was recognized by the Chamber as the Outstanding Public Servant. The Fredericksburg Rotary honored him as their Rotarian in 1995 and in 2003 was awarded for 53 years of perfect attendance. He is also a multiple Paul Harris Fellow. He had been a member of the Market Square Redevelopment Commission since 1991. Hans served as chairman of the Transportation Committee whose primary focus was to obtain a truck route to allow trucks with hazardous chemicals off Main Street. One of his disappointments was that this never came about. In October 2000, he was awarded the Star of Texas Award, for his historical and civic contributions to Fredericksburg and the State of Texas. In 2001, the local Masonic Lodge #794 honored Hans with the Community Builder Award, the highest award given to a non-Mason, for contributions to community. And, in 2003 the Hermann Sons Lodge #41 honored him with their Humanitarian Award. There have been a lot of accolades about the honors bestowed on Hans — but he remained humble and never understood why people made a “fuss” over the things he did — it was just what he NEEDED to do. To his children he was just Daddy … no big deal. We thought everybody had a dad just like him. To his grandchildren he was Opie ... and that IS a BIG deal! We wish everyone could have an Opie like him. To honor him, Helen, Dennis and Dorthy tolled the Zion bells at noon on Sunday, Aug. 19, 2012 the day of his death. Funeral services were held on Wednesday, Aug. 22, at 11 am at Zion Lutheran Church with Rev. Rick Hartmann, Rev. Ardene Wuthrich and Rev. Harold Vanicek, Jr. officiating. The combined choirs of Zion and St. Mary’s sang and Mary Ann Murchison was accompanist. Hans is survived by his wife of 67 years, Dorthy Henke Hannemann; Daughter, Helen Rode and husband Allen; Son, Dennis and wife Jodi — all of Fredericksburg; Son-in-law, Kenneth Lindig of Stonewall. He is also survived by eight grandchildren: Susan Rode- Laughlin of Fredericksburg, Yvonne Rode Moody and husband Ted, of San Antonio, Keith Lindig and wife Cathy of Stonewall, Kevin Lindig and wife Bonnie of Thorndale, Carl Hannemann of Fredericksburg, Daniel Hannemann and Emilie of Selma TX, Amy Hannemann and Brooke Hannemann of Fredericksburg. Survivors also include eight great-grandchildren: Adam Laughlin, Allen Laughlin and wife Carissa, Amber Moody and Ashley Moody, Mason, Jenna and Allison Lindig, and Julie Hannemann. And, three brothers and spouses: Waldemar and Claribel Hannemann, Fredericksburg; Rev. Eugene and Margaret Hannemann, Thousand Oaks, Calif.; Rev. August and Pauline Hannemann, Elgin; one brother-in-law, Hilmar Dittmar, Hamilton; one sister-in-law, Peggy Hannemann, Kerrville. Pallbearers: Keith Lindig, Kevin Lindig, Carl Hannemann, Daniel Hannemann, Adam Laughlin, Allen Laughlin.

Hannemann, Waldemar Carl: Fredericksburg Standard - Radio Post; 29 August 2012
Waldemar “Wally” Carl Hannemann passed away on Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2012 at the age of 90 at the Hill Country Memorial Hospital in Fredericksburg, TX. Wally was born on April 24, 1922, to Fred J. and Caecilia Sagebiel Hannemann in Cave Creek, Texas. He was the fifth child of ten children. He attended school in Fredericksburg. Wally was only seven when his father died. To help earn money, the children sold milk from their cow and delivered it to customers using a wagon pulled by a donkey. The whole family got involved with delivering the San Antonio newspapers to the people in town. This was accomplished with bicycles, motorcycles and later some cars. The brothers and sisters bonded together in accomplishing many chores to help their mother and each other out. Wally had been a member of Zion Lutheran Church since 1924 and served in various roles, including the Church Council, usher, and the building and property committee. On June 28, 1947, he married Claribel Wilke, the daughter of Felix and Mathilda Wilke and she survives him. He is also survived by his children: Paul Hannemann and wife Janalee of Fredericksburg; Carol Rode and husband Bruce of Llano, Jeanne Hannemann of Fredericksburg, David Hannemann and wife Linda of San Antonio, and Charles VanBerg and wife Bonnie of Mansfield, TX. They have eight grandchildren and two step-grandchildren; and four greatgrandchildren and eight step-great-grandchildren. He is also survived by brothers and their spouses: Rev. Eugene Hannemann and wife Margaret of Thousand Oaks, CA; Rev. August Hannemann and wife Pauline of Elgin; brother-in-law, Hilmar Dittmar of Hamilton, and sisters in- law Dorthy Hannemann of Fredericksburg, Peggy Hannemann and Adeline Klein of Kerrville, and Marian Horton of Sabinal. He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers: Paul Hannemann, Herold “Hans” Hannemann, Ernst Hannemann, Raymond Hannemann and Freddie Hannemann; sisters: Cora Hannemann Dittmar and Anita Hannemann; and brothers-in-law: Leroy Horton, Alton Wilke, Louis Wilke and Kenneth Wilke, and sisters-in-law: Leola Wilke, Lillie Hannemann, and Mattie Hannemann. Wally attended Fredericksburg High School and Texas A&M Fire School and was a certified firefighter by the Texas Commission on Fire Protection and a certified Intermediate Firefighter and Training Coordinator by the State Firemen and Fire Marshals Association. While in school, Wally was employed with Tomlison Dairy, where he would drive a load of dairy products to Brady at nights. He also worked at the Kallenberg’s Pharmacy as a clerk and taking care of the soda fountain. When World War II came along, he went to Killeen and worked for a drugstore for a short period. Then he went to Chula Vista, Calif. and got a job working in the Rohr Aircraft Plant, a defense plant outside of San Diego. Wally worked in California until he received his 1A draft classification for the armed forces. He bought his first car, a 1935 Chevrolet for $125 and came home. When he arrived back in Texas, he enlisted in the Army at Fort Sam Houston. His first duty station was Camp Butner, North Carolina. He was placed into a Medical Detachment, due to the fact that the Captain in charge had trained at Hahnemann Hospital in Philadelphia, Penn. and was the only one who could pronounce his last name. He continued his training at Camp Forrest, Tenn. On Jan. 5, 1944, his unit left from San Francisco Harbor, Calif. on a Dutch freighter, “Kota Agoeing.” After a month-long boat ride, the reached Goodenough Island off the coast of Australia. After being offered the option of staying in the medics, Wally chose to become attached to “A” Company Combat Engineers Battalion. He was part of building the 9th General Hospital on Goodenough Island. He became a very accomplished operator on bulldozers, motor graders and Tourneau Pull scrapers. They constructed campsites, roads and airstrips. This would become very beneficial in future years. In April 1944, their unit was transferred to General MacArthur's Pacific headquarters at Hollandia, Dutch New Guinea, where they built an airstrip. They continued building hospitals, roads, and airstrips throughout the Philippine Islands. On May 18, 1945, his unit moved to Mindanao where they built the Libby Airdrome and the 30th Evacuation Hospital. It was there that his unit was alerted to be ready to go to Japan when the word of surrender came, and they were sent back to the states in 1946. His military awards include the American Theater Campaign Medal, Asiatic Pacific Campaign with 2 Bronze Stars, and the Philippine Liberation Medal with 1 Bronze Star. Upon returning from the military, Wally went to work for Quality Peanut Company with his brother, Ernst. He drove trucks and worked in their plant. He also took flight training to fly airplanes. Wally told the story of flying a plane from Fredericksburg to Mason to make sure the right type of peanuts were loaded and brought back to Fredericksburg to be shipped by rail to San Antonio. In April 1948, Wally went to work for the City of Fredericksburg Fire Department as a station attendant as well as serving as a volunteer fire fighter. On his days off, he drove a school bus and would swap out with the other station attendant. He worked as a paid firefighter until April 1953, when he went to work for the Seiberling Rubber Company driving test cars for tire performance. That involved driving at night for ten hours every day over roads in West Texas. After less than a year and having a wreck, he decided that he needed to find a daytime job. His military experience paid off as he accepted a job with Allen Keller Company operating heavy equipment. He worked full time for them for 20 years and became one of their main heavy equipment haul truck drivers. Then, in 1973, after one of the fire department station attendants passed away, Mayor Sidney Henke asked him to return to work for the City of Fredericksburg Fire Department. Wally continued to work part time for Allen Keller Company on his days off from the fire department. He retired as a paid firefighter in 1990, but continued as a volunteer until 2006. When Wally retired as a member of the Fredericksburg Volunteer Fire Department, he had served as a firefighter for over 58 years. Only two members, Roy Stroeher and Wally, have ever attained that number of years of service with the local fire department. During those 58 years, he was many changes, including the building of the fire station in 1948 along with numerous renovations over the years. Wally was a major proponent for training because he attended the Texas A&M Fire Training School, Area Fire Schools, and conferences numerous times and understood the value of education. He was also involved in the purchasing of at least 12 of the department’s fire apparatus that they have received since 1948. He served in leadership roles for 31 of the 58 years in the department. Those included Pension Board, Shift Officer, Certification Coordinator Lieutenant, Captain, Assistant Chief and Chief. He was known as a very capable fix-it person at home, church, work and at the fire department. He was an excellent electrician, plumber, carpenter and heavy equipment operator. He gave 110% effort to everything he did in his life. He had strong convictions and high morals and served the community of Fredericksburg and the county of Gillespie without expecting any accolades or awards. His greatest reward was knowing that he had given back to the people of this community. In all of his accomplishments, his greatest accomplishment was being married to Claribel for 65 years, being Daddy to children that love and respect him, and Opie to eight grandchildren that loved and adored him for always being there for them. He will be sorely missed by all of them. Funeral services for Wally Hannemann were held Saturday, Aug. 25, at 10:30 a.m., at Zion Lutheran Church, with Rev. Rick Hartmann and Rev.

Hartmann, Ronald Joseph: Fredericksburg Standard - Radio Post; 12 September 2012
Ronald Joseph “Ronny” Hartmann, 59, of Fredericksburg, passed away Sunday, Aug. 26, 2012. A funeral mass was celebrated Wednesday, Aug. 29, at 10 a.m., at St. Mary’s Catholic Church with Msgr. Enda McKenna officiating. Mary Ann Murchison was the pianist; Megan Schmidt, the cantor, and the St. Mary’s Adult Choir also sang. Graveside services and interment followed at St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery Mausoleum. Pallbearers included Edward Rees, Dennis Segner, Tracy Heimann, Michael Juenke, Jack Ledford, Joe Alexander, Jake Garner and Justin Hendrickson. Honorary pallbearers were Amy and Eric Garner, Leslie and Kyle Kothe, Traci Hartmann, Bryant Reininger, Hannah Reininger, Morghan Hartmann and Ainslee Hartmann. Visitation was held Tuesday evening, Aug. 28, in the chapel at Schaetter Funeral Home where Carlos Juenke led a vigil service, followed by rosary services recited by St. Ann’s Society and St. Joseph’s Society. Ronny was born Sept. 24, 1952, in Fredericksburg, to Paul and Frances Hohmann Hartmann. He was baptized at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, was an Eagle Scout, and graduated from St. Mary’s High School in 1970. Ronny attended St. Edward’s University in Austin where he played baseball all four years and graduated in 1974, receiving a bachelor of arts degree in history. Upon graduation, he taught and coached in the Manor Independent School District and later moved to Corpus Christi where he accepted a position with Calallen Middle School to continue to pursue his life’s dream of coaching and teaching. Ronny’s dreams and those of his family were shattered in 1982 when he was involved in a three-wheeler accident in Corpus Christi. The injuries he received in that accident would increasingly affect his ability to walk. His once promising career as a coach and teacher was finished. His once purposeful stride would become a painful limp. He would no longer form the minds of the young or inspire young athletes. God had bigger plans and bigger dreams for him. In his inimitable way, Ronny would inspire an entire community and become a coach of life. He had thousands of reasons and justifications to become a victim but instead he became a victor. Every Sunday, Ronny faithfully attended the 7:30 a.m. mass at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. Sunday after Sunday he would inspire others as he struggled to the communion rail. The aches and pains of others were lessened as he limped to receive the Sacraments. Filled with the Lord’s goodness and strength, he was off to one of his most favorite places — HEB — where he was employed for over 21 years. He was an exemplary employee, never late once in those 21 years, and he could sell ‘Showtime’ items to almost everyone he came in contact with. Ronny was a powerful example of playing the hand we are dealt and doing so without whining but with grace and a smile for all — friend or stranger. He will be missed by his family and the thousands of customers at HEB. Those that knew him, saw him or were a recipient of his smile are all the better for it. He was touched with a bit of greatness and now so are we, as we have comfort knowing he is with the Savior and free from all his afflictions. When not at work, Ronny loved to go fishing and to go to the "ranch" at Bell Mountain to fill deer feeders and to hunt. Survivors, in addition to his parents include two brothers, one sister and spouses: Mike and Carol Hartmann, of Fredericksburg; Keith and Debbie Hartmann of Wichita, Kansas, and Diane and Dennis Reininger of Fredericksburg, and several nieces and nephews.

The middle child in a family of five, she was preceded in death by her brothers Henry, Elgin, and Joe and sister Thekla Mrosek, as well as her parents, husband Joe, and son Sidney. She is survived by six children, seven grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren. Louise attended the one-room school in the Reservation Community, completing her schooling with the eighth grade. On the family farm, she had many daily and seasonal chores, later remembering picking cotton as one of her least favorite tasks. On April 29, 1941, she and Joseph Anton Heinemann were married in St. Anthony Catholic Church in Harper and began their life together on the family ranch west of Harper. Her days were filled with the many chores of ranch life and homemaking -- gardening, sewing, cooking and baking, and preserving food. After their first child, Sidney, was born in March 1942, her days became even busier. Eventually, the family would grow to include seven children. As Louise’s role in the family focused on child-rearing, she relied on her strong Catholic faith to sustain her through difficult times. Her children recall their mother having them say the Rosary in the evenings at home. The younger children remember having to miss “The Beverly Hillbillies” on TV, because they were attending Wednesday evening church services. For her faithful service through the years, Louise was honored as a lifetime member of the St. Ann’s Society of the St. Anthony church. As her children entered school and progressed through the grades, Louise was an active participant in the parent-teacher organization and her family’s many school activities. She was known as someone who could be called upon to support the school and her community when there was a task to be done. After her husband Joe died suddenly on Dec. 27, 1967, Louise faced her life’s greatest challenge. As a woman who had never worked outside the home, she was left with four children still at home and meager financial resources. In Typical fashion, she faced the challenge head-on. She quickly found employment as a cook at the Longhorn Cafe in Harper, and her cooking and baking skills became a source of much-needed family income. Meanwhile, with the help of her children, she continued to run the family ranch, raising food for the family and bringing in income from ranching activities. After her children completed their education and left home, Louise remained on the ranch until 1982, when she moved to a small house on Travis Street in Fredericksburg. She continued to maintain the Harper ranch, keeping cows and sheep there Until well into her 70s. In Fredericksburg she enjoyed making new friends and re-connecting with numerous relatives. St. Mary’s Catholic Church became her new church home. In Fredericksburg, Louise had the essentials of a happy life: a garden where she could continue to grow vegetables and a large yard that overflowed with beautiful flowering plants each summer. Always a walker, while she earlier had enjoyed long walks on the family ranch, she now took to the streets of Fredericksburg for her daily walks. Some of her family accused her of socializing more than walking, as she waved to her neighbors and stopped to chat with folks along the way With her move to Fredericksburg, Louise’s reputation as a great cook and baker grew even wider. She was especially known for her homemade cinnamon rolls, pecan pies, fruit preserves and meringue pies, and she had numerous blue ribbons from the Gillespie County Fair over the years to prove it. She loved cooking a full meal and special sweets for her children and grandchildren as they came for holidays and weekend visits. She also continued to supplement her income by cooking and baking at Engel's Deli, then Jere's Tea Room, and finally, the Golden Hub until her retirement in 1996 at the age of 80. Louise always loved a good party -- a chance to eat sweets and chat with friends and relatives. In Fredericksburg there were many opportunities to socialize and to celebrate her German heritage. She loved speaking German and being addressed in German, and she loved the German music and dances. She looked forward to celebrating the many family weddings, which always culminated in good food and dancing. In early 2008, Louise was no longer able to live alone, and she moved to the Knopp Assisted Living Center. Though she would have preferred remaining in her own home, she was blessed never to have any major illnesses or diseases until a gradual decline in health during the last several months and her final illness several days prior to her death. She is survived by three sons and three daughters and their spouses: Eugene and Sherron Heinemann of Austin, Emma and Daniel Krenek of Manchaca, Roy and Betsy Heinemann of Hempstead, Leo and Elaine Heinemann of Cuero, Mary and Buzz Roye of Cave Creek, and Linda Heinemann of Houston. Also surviving are her grandchildren and spouses: Deborah and Chris Jistel of Austin, Dean and Brandi Krenek of Mesquite, Kimberly and Scott Holder of Cuero, Kyle and Emily Heinemann of Huntsville, Rebecca Heinemann and Sean Lanham of Arlington, Sarah Heinemann of Garland, and Kristin and Kevin Utterback of Huntsville, Alabama.

Henshaw, George Allen III: Fredericksburg Standard - Radio Post; 13 July 2011
George Allen Henshaw III was born to Walter Anderson & Frances Allen (Milner) Henshaw on Sept. 27, 1935, in Bexar County, Texas. He passed away on July 5, 2011, in Canyon Lake, Texas at the age of 75. He is survived by his daughter, Michelle Henshaw Baur, from his first marriage to Virginia Louise Kelso.

Brown, Tasia Jahns, Terrin Ellis Baur, Hailey Savannah Baur, Ashley Nicole Henshaw, Zachary Henshaw and Shoadi Leigh Henshaw. He was preceded in death by his wife, Hazel Claire Gasch Henshaw and son, George Allen Henshaw IV. . George married Hazel Gasch on Dec. 10, 1962 after a brief 10 day courtship. It was true love at first sight. George told Hazel on their first date he was going to marry her--and he did! Hazel was raised on her father’s dairy farm in Poteet, TX and met George at a local eatery in S. Texas. Married for 45 years, they owned and operated several businesses, including Hill Country Dry Cleaners and Lackland Terrace Cleaners in the 1960’s and eventually opened a gas station / convenience store out on 281 N in 1971 called the Iron Skillet. In 1982, the store was renamed Henshaw Brothers Store. By selling sausage on a stick and mutton burgers off a small BBQ pit to local workers, the little country store expanded into Mouse’s Smokehouse Restaurant in 1985. “Mouse’s” as it became known, grew into a South Texas BBQ icon over the next 23 years. It became one of the most well known eating establishments and landmarks at the 281 North corridor until the Henshaw family sold the business in 2004. “Mouse’s” was named after George’s wife, Hazel, who he gave the nickname to after lovingly referring to her as the “church mouse” for many years. Hazel ran the restaurant along with her #1 son Allen and her two other children Andy and Shody.
George grew up in San Antonio and went to Alamo Heights High School in the early 1950’s where he starred on the football team and went on to Trinity University and played Football for the Tigers too. George was brought up in a wealthy oil and cattle family who had their roots in Oklahoma. The original Henshaw Brothers – George’s father Walter and his two uncles George Allen II and Paul, struck it rich in the oil fields of Oklahoma and eventually expanded into the cattle business. The Henshaw Brothers at one time had the largest herd of Red Angus cattle in the world, even presenting President John F. Kennedy with a prized Red Angus on the White House lawn. George's father Walter was a past president of the Red Angus Association of America. Owning several South Texas ranches George’s family eventually settled in San Antonio where they became staple members of the San Antonio Country Club and spent their time between their homes in Alamo Heights and their summer home on the San Antonio Riverwalk located at 515 Villita which eventually became the Fig Tree Restaurant which is still in operation today and was known historically as the Gray Guilbeau House. It was one of the last private dwellings in LaVillita before the Henshaws sold it to the Phelps family in 1970. George and Hazel eventually settled out on 20 acres off 281 N. where they raised their three children and ran the family BBQ business. George spent his later years to himself in retirement and spending time with his family. Private graveside services were held Saturday, July 9, at 1 p.m., at Rutledge Cemetery in Poteet, Texas. Arrangements were under the direction of Doeppenschmidt Funeral Home, New Braunfels, TX

Hopf, Minna Emma Helene:
Not quite one score of years old beautiful Miss Minna Emma Helene Hopf, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Adolph Hopf on Wednesday, June 28, at noon succumbed to the ravages of that merciless destroyer of human life, tubercular consumption. She contracted the disease about eighteen months ago, and despite all careful nursing and scientific help her primeval flowering womanhood faded until the reaper death stepped in as a rescuer from great suffering. Miss Minna was born near Luckenbach, Gillespie County, on September 26, 1896. She grew up to be a beautiful beam of sunlight in the home; her musical talent being a source of enjoyment for her parents, her relatives and friends. Several years ago she with her parents moved into town where they had a lovely cottage built on the elevation of ground, south of the depot overlooking the town. Minna leaves her father and mother, an only sister Adele, her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Enderlin, and many other kinfolks in great bereavement. The sympathy of the whole population is extended to them in their great loss. The funeral was held Thursday afternoon at 3 o'clock, and was conducted by Rev. Konzack, interment being made at the Union Cemetery. The assemblage of mourners was very large; sympathizing friends having come from all parts of the county, and beautiful and many were the floral offerings. The "Arion" of which Mr. Ad. Hopf is the musical conductor, sang two beautiful selections at the grave Mr. E. H. Riley leading. The STANDARD joins the many friends of the family in the expression of sympathy and condolences.

Howerton, Rebecca Louise: Fredericksburg Standard - Radio Post; 6 February 2013
It was a life well lived! Rebecca Louise Beckmann Howerton unexpectedly passed away on Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013. She was born May 12, 1934 in Blanco, Texas in a little rock house close to the Blanco River. She attended Blanco Public School and graduated with a degree in teaching from Southwest Texas State University (now Texas State) with a major in Physical Education and a minor in English. This degree, her drive, love of children, and passion for learning led to a 44 year teaching career. The lives she touched as a teacher were numerous because she taught in various places: Blanco, New Braunfels, Yoakum, Port O’Connor, Sugarland, Fredericksburg and Houston. Rebecca received several teaching awards including being named Teacher of the Year in 1984 at FM Black School, Houston, Texas and was listed in Who’s Who Among Americans several times. While teaching in Houston, she also served as the English Department Chair at FM Black Middle School. In addition to an extensive teaching career, Rebecca also owned several small businesses. Those who knew Rebecca knew that she was full of energy and loved being active. For many years, she played tennis, volleyball, swam and is known to have danced her way across much of Texas! She performed in plays, enjoyed dressing up in her historical costumes, and was even an extra in the recent True Grit movie. Her sense of vitality also translated into an enthusiastic involvement in organizations, often serving in an administrative position. This desire to give back to others only intensified through the years and resulted in her actively participating in numerous local organizations including the Blanco Historic Commission, Keep Blanco Beautiful, the Twin Sisters Hermann Sons Lodge, the Women’s Auxiliary of Eagles, Blanco Good Samaritan and Food Pantry, the Lions Club and the OBCCPS and serving on the Blanco City Council for thirteen years. Rebecca worked with others to create the Blanco Pioneer Museum; a perfect expression of her love of history and respect for Blanco’s past. Her family’s long history in the area, led her to also work tirelessly for the upkeep of the local cemetery, serving as an officer on the Blanco Cemetery Committee for several years. She so generously volunteered her time, talents and resources, that she was honored in 2010 with the Community Builder Award; an unexpected honor that she deeply treasured. Rebecca was devoted to her church, Blanco Trinity Lutheran Church. A member since 1934, she served as a pianist, choir member (oh, how she loved to sing), altar guild and Church Council member, worship assistant and lay reader, president of the church women, and much more. Rebecca was preceded in death by her parents, Richard and Cora Beckmann. Many knew that Rebecca was her daddy’s girl, actively hunting and fishing with Richard for forty years. She is survived by two daughters, Renee Howerton and Roxanne Parker, by Renee’s husband, Bill Wikrent, and two grandsons, Richard Parker and Evan Lynch and his wife, Stephanie. There are four great-grandsons, Christian, Caston, Grayson and Liam as well as many loving family members, friends, past students, and co-workers who will miss her. Funeral services were held Friday, Feb. 1, at 10 a.m., at Trinity Lutheran Church in Blanco with interment following in the Blanco Cemetery.
