  Billie, most recently of Austin, Texas went to her final and perfect home on December 24, 2019, quietly and peacefully in her home while her children Pam Hoffman, Veda Scheppan, June Crisswell, Ben Quinn, and Laurie Bram along with other family sang songs of the Savior who welcomed her.
   Although Billie relocated to Austin after the death of her (second) late husband she lived all of her adult life in Wharton, Jackson, and Matagorda counties: she loved moving from house to house but especially loved rearranging furniture.
    Lots of stubbed toes occurred while trying to navigate through a dark house in the middle of the night for a restroom break and running into furniture that hadn’t been there the night before.
   One time her (first) late husband came home from work to find he didn’t live there anymore: she had moved all of their belongings to a different home while he was at work!

A match made in Heaven began many years before Kimberly and Chris actually started dating in March 2007. 
   The deal was sealed on March 19, 2011 when “Miss Kimberly” said “I do.” 
   “Miss Kimberly,” as Chris so fondly referred to her on Air, became his soul mate, his everything. 
   Sharing a love like none other, he was her protector right down to his last breath.
   In 1982 Chris graduated from Jack Yates School of Communications Magnet Program in Houston, Texas.  Eventually he made Matagorda County his home where his radio career began as the Legendary “C.W.”  
   He worked for x-97 and KMKS Hot County 102.5, becoming a part of the Texas music family for almost 30 years.
