My maternal grandparents, Harry William Linderman and Phyllis Eugenia (Palen) married on 27 February 1923 in Clayton County, Iowa.

They resided in Dubuque, Dubuque, County, Iowa in 1930.

In 1935 they resided in Ottawa, La Salle County, Illinois.

They resided in Indianapolis, Hamilton County, Indiana in 1940.

Harry & Phyllis had four daughters together: Yvonne Phyllis, Yvarra Irene (Billie), Jean Marie, and Patricia (Patsy) Mae Linderman.

In 1943 the family moved to Houston, Harris County, Texas. 

My grandfather loved watching owls. He was always making wise cracks. 

So, they named their home place “Wiseacres” in Westfield, Hamilton County, Indiana.

They moved to Houston, Harris County, Texas in 1943. They also named their place there “Wiseacres” in Crosby, Harris County, Texas.

My mother was in the last year of high school and transferred from Indianapolis to Lamar High School.

BAVARIA     BAYERN.

Land in south eastern Germany, and former Duchy, Electorate and Kingdom, and one of the longest lasting political units in European history, though its borders have changed.

The present Land of Bavaria (Bayern) stretches northwards from the Allgäuer, Bayerischer and Salzburger Alps to lands beyond the River Main.   In the northwestern corner is the city of Aschaffenburg on the River Main;  in the northeast are the upper waters of the Rivers Saale and Eger (Ohøe in Czech), which are tributaries of the Elbe and so flow to the North Sea;  in the southeast are the Alps around Berchtesgaden;  in the southwest Bavaria has some miles of shore on Lake Constance (Bodensee), the lake through which the Rhine flows.

The rains that fall on the greater part of the Land however flow not to the North but to the Black Sea.   The Danube flows across…

He preceded her in death. No children of this union. One step son, Michieal Wayne Mancill. She was the life of the party. My Dad sang and played the guitar for her. She lived, she laughed and she loved. Lou called her his “satan pussycat”, and the “princess and the pea”. She was spoiled by my Dad. They spoiled each other. They were each other’s best friend. They were deeply in love.

Mother passed away at home surrounded with family that loved her. She just drifted off, and the angels came to get her. We believe that the week before, she had some mini strokes, because after that she could not speak and was bed ridden. My consolation was she was not in pain, and not alone, and I was able to be there with her for her last six years of her life.

Mother just passed today, Friday, March 9, 2012, in Rosharon, Texas. She left us peacefully to be with Jesus. I am so grateful to have been able to spend the last six years living together with Mother. We got to be even closer than ever.

She was blessed with a good life, and a good family. She really was always there with all of us six children, up until the last week of her life. She fell on Monday, and we think she had a mini stroke, she never was able to speak clearly after that. She passed away on Friday afternoon, in her sleep.

Mother told us that she did not want to go, but she left us just like she wanted to. She had dignity and respect from all who knew her. Everyone who knew her loved her. She was a very giving person, and always was there for her six children.Our family was a very loving, close-knit family.

Burial followed at the same Oaklawn Cemetery, where Aunt Yvonne Linderman (Levesque), Uncle Kenneth Jackson, and Aunt Yvarra “Billie” Linderman (Jackson) are buried.

Mother’s viewing was held on Monday, March 12, 2012 from 4-9pm. The funeral services were on Tuesday, March 13, 2012 @11am @ Oaklawn Cemetery Pavilion, on Hwy. 36 in Somerville, TX. location at:, Strickland Funeral Home at 545 8th Street, SOMERVILLE, TEXAS 77879, (979)596-2133.
