HELEN MARIE OSBORN ROBY

Helen Marie Osborn Roby entered Heaven’s gates on December 22, 2016, at home in Magnolia, TX. She was diagnosed with a terminal heart condition in September, but her strong will to live, unwavering faith in God, and the love and prayers of family, friends, and many supporters carried her through 3 more months of time with her family. She was born on February 2, 1929, to Herbert Frederick Osborn and Vera Edith (Head) Osborn in Iowa Colony, TX. She was the third of six children and a graduate of Belton County High School, class of 1946. Following graduation, she moved to Houston, where she met and later married Vincent Lee Roby, Jr. in 1950. Their two daughters were the light of their lives.

She was a faithful member of St. John’s Presbyterian church for thirty-plus years, where she was active in many volunteer positions. She was also active in community work and volunteered two times a week at Braes Interfaith Ministries. Due to health reasons in 2010, she moved to Magnolia, TX where she became an active member of GracePoint Fellowship Baptist Church.


She worked for an insurance agency for most of her career, but the only job that really mattered was being a “mom.” She was the heart of the Roby family, she always made sure everyone was taken care of, and she always put everyone else’s needs before her own. Helen was a master cook in the kitchen, she loved to read her Bible (of which she had many!), pray, play games/cards, and loved, loved her daughters, grandchildren and great grandchildren.


We will remember her smile, her resilience, her energy, her generosity, her red lipstick and nails, her love for life, family and friends. Most of all we learned from her example that it is possible to find happiness even in the most difficult of life’s circumstances. She may have had a hard life, but prayer and her strong Christian faith helped her

 accept the things she could not change. She made a difference in the lives of many and will be dearly missed by all who were blessed to have known her.


She was survived by daughters Patricia Lynn Hall and LeAnn Roby Kerr and their husbands; four grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; her sister Doris Osborn Gibson and her husband; one niece, three nephews, and their families; and numerous cousins and friends.


We will celebrate her life at a Memorial Service on January 14, 2017, at 1:00 pm, at GracePoint Fellowship Baptist Church, 426 Corporate Woods Dr, Magnolia, TX 77354.

JOANNE MARIE NEAL SIGNOR 

On December 13, 2016, Joanne Signor joined Charles, her loving husband of 54 years, in Heaven, only ten days after he joined his Heavenly Father and family.

She leaves behind her daughter Holly Secrest of Nacogdoches, and her family Robert, Derek, Dillon, and Rusty; her son Clay Signor of Austin and his family, Sarah, Sienna, and Wyatt; her daughter, Sara Alexander of Montgomery, and her family, Derek, Avery, Ansley, and Annemarie; and her daughter Shelley Buhrow of Dallas, and her family, Brian, Fields, and Tristan; as well as countless family friends who have been blessed by her laughter and friendship over the years.

Joanne Marie Neal was born on May 24th, 1937 in Conroe, TX, to Arthur Powell Neal and his wife Blanch Emma. The youngest of six children, Joanne was known for her vivacious personality, spending her childhood enjoying movies in downtown Conroe on Saturdays, dancing and even singing on her own local radio show in her teenage years before graduating from Conroe High School in 1956. She acquired countless friends working at several local businesses including The Conroe Courier and First National Bank before that fateful day when her husband-to-be followed her home from Dott's Drive-In to ask her for a date. They soon married and built a life together with God and family as their primary focus.

A committed full time mother of four, Joanne also contributed to Charles's oil and gas and real estate development businesses as well as launching a real estate career of her own in the early nineties working as an agent for Sue Luce. She also made time for many hobbies over the years, including her local sorority (who have remained dedicated friends for over forty years) playing bridge, tennis, book club, writing poetry, painting, Bible Study Fellowship, a prison bible ministry and helping with various charities (one of her favorites being New Life Women's Center where she and her husband Charles have played an integral role in many aspects of the ministry since its foundation in 2004). She never encountered a challenge that she didn't meet head on with courage and enthusiasm. Together, she and Charles lived each day to its fullest, traveling frequently and enjoying entertaining family and friends at their ranch in Lampasas.

Though she is so very missed here on Earth, we rejoice in knowing that she is present with her loving Savior in Heaven where her voice is made whole and she now sings with the Angels. After all, this world is not our home. We are just passing through.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly asks that you direct your giving to New Life Women's Center, for those residents who do not currently have financial support.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, December 16, 2016 at 12:00 P.M. at the Walden Yacht Club. A private family graveside will be held prior to the Celebration.

She will be remembered as Ellen, Mama and Nanny to so many and Gigi to many more. I'm sure many of you can remember a time spent at her house eating her spaghetti or other goodies she made. It is because of her that you all probably like scary movies because she made sure to pass that on to her daughter. 

Ellen spent many of her days caring for many children and animals. You might even remember her as the crazy cat lady. But she loved that title. She never met an animal she didn't like or didn't like her. And she did what she could to feed the animals of the world too by sending money to various charities.

We will all miss your sassy disposition and hard headedness. Your love of a good debate. No matter how much we disagreed. You taught a lot of us not to put up with anyone giving us a hard time. And how to always be giving even when you didn't have much to give. Gigi we love you and know you are making the house spotless for when we get to be next to you again. In the spirit of a true "trekkie", LIVE LONG AND PROSPER.

Ellen is survived by her loving family: Daughter, Vanessa McNear and husband, Michael; adopted daughter, Brandi Nichols; son Gerald Rzezik; former Husband Eugene Serrato; grandchildren, Devon Kercher, Madalyn Kercher, Brooklyn White, Bryce and Marissa Chacon, Maddox McNear, Marcus Rzezik, and A.

CARYL KEIR

Caryl Keir of Conroe, Texas passed away August 12, 2016 as a result of Breast Cancer. Her loving family were by her side leading her Home to be with the Lord. She leaves behind sons Johnny Keir and wife Patty of Dallas, Randy Keir and wife Diane of The Woodlands, and daughter Leslie Knight and husband David of College Station; grandchildren, Kalyn and Amanda Keir, William and Sydney Knight, and Clayton Knight. Caryl is survived by her loving sister, Marjorie Heffner of North Carolina, and numerous nieces and nephews from coast to coast.

Caryl was born on October 13, 1929 in Newark, New Jersey, to Carl and Marjorie Strebinger and grew up in Hillside, New Jersey in a loving and happy family during the Great Depression and WWII. In school, she excelled in academics and sports. In 1952, she married and soon thereafter took her growing young family off on a nationwide adventure to California, Washington, Oregon, Illinois, and finally Texas as business transfers and opportunities presented themselves.

Caryl loved dogs, children, and all people in that order, and was therefore an instant hit and success in each and every neighborhood. As a great communicator, leader, and one of tireless energy she became ingrained in each and every activity and social event that was available and quickly cross pollinated new ideas and activities from her vast experience. So no matter what activity you participated in; neighborhood socials, school, church, country club golf, swimming, bridge, lake, ocean, etc. you'd be sure to know Caryl and her crew. She was most proud of her role as a mom and loved taking part in keeping her kids active and healthy.


When the family moved to Texas in 1972, Caryl not only stayed involved in the social aspects of life but expanded her focus to business. In addition to owning and managing several rental properties, Caryl worked in the real estate business full-time for many years and finished up her working career in the oil and gas industry with Brown and Root. Upon retiring she quickly returned to the golf course, bridge club, volunteered as a water aerobics instructor for seventeen years, served weekly with Meals on Wheels, Soup Kitchen, and helped form the River Plantation Junior Golf Program. She was also a dedicated and loyal supporter of the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center and through the years donated over twenty-seven gallons of blood to the Center.

No matter when or where you ran into Caryl, she would always have a current event or funny joke to share with you as she was always up to date on current events, politics, and local news. She was a voracious reader and was seldom seen at home without a new book in her hand or in later years her Kindle. If you owned a puppy she had previously met and you saw her on the street, she would likely address you with; “Well hello there Rover or Lassie's Mother.” Through the years Caryl owned many dogs ranging from a minimum of two at one time to as many as five. The rumor at the Veterinarian’s office was that every dog in the kennel was hoping for the day one of Caryl's beloved dogs moved on to doggy heaven as perhaps now they would have the chance of becoming one of her beloved babies.

In her final years, Caryl never lost her totally full schedule mentality and her likable commander-in-chief disposition. As she slowed down a bit, she was absolutely delighted to be with her children, grandchildren, and grand-dogs while staying active with her church, bridge with the ladies, reading on her new patio in the afternoons, playing Words with friends on her Kindle, watching golf tournaments and her beloved New York Yankees, and of course participating in a deep water aerobics class.

Caryl requested to be cremated and have a celebratory funeral service followed by a lunch reception afterwards at the church. The funeral service will be held on Friday, August 26, 2016 at 11:00 A.M. at The First Presbyterian Church in Conroe where Caryl was an Elder for many years. The Rev. Dr. David Green will be officiating.

Although she will be greatly missed, we take great comfort in knowing we can rest firmly in our faith in Christ and assurance of our salvation in Him. The family would like to send our heartfelt thanks to our dear Aunt Margie Heffner, who flew in from North Carolina and gave her steadfast Christ centered support to her dear sister and to us, which was done lovingly and through the kindness of her heart. Also, we would like to thank Mom’s special angel, Patti Aldridge for her countless hours and loving devotion throughout Mom’s illness. Finally, special thanks to Marty Craig, Misty Westover, Vitas Hospice, all of Mom’s dear Windsor Lake neighbors and many many other area friends for all the phone calls, food, beautiful flowers, cards and hugs.


“Grateful for the richness of her life, the kindness of her heart, and the love of her friends.”
