Doris Bailey Wennerbom

Doris Bailey Wennerbom of Center, Texas, passed away peacefully in her home on December 21st at the age of 99.

Doris was born on July 28, 1923, in Shelby County to Spurgeon and Isabelle Daw Bailey. She attended Joaquin school where she graduated as valedictorian in 1939. She furthered her education at Stephen F. Austin with a major in Physical Education. Her first teaching job was in Port Arthur teaching PE. It was while teaching there that the school nurse introduced her to her nephew, MT “Bo” Wennerbom. He was an air force pilot in town on a leave. It was love at first sight, and after corresponding thru letters until Bo was able to return to the states, they were married in 1945. They then moved to College Station where Bo attended Texas A&M on a GI Bill and earned a degree in Engineering while Doris took in laundry from Corp students at Texas A&M to help pay the bills. During this time they were blessed with a beautiful daughter, Susan, born in 1946. After graduation, the family moved to Beaumont and Doris taught girl’s PE at South Park High School. Over the years, they moved several times as Bo’s career advanced with every job. Some of the cities they lived in were Dunkirk, New York; Bay City, Michigan; Cordele, Georgia; and Perrysburg, Ohio. Many lifelong friends were made throughout the years.

Eventually Doris stopped teaching and devoted herself to being a housewife for 59 years. When Bo retired from Schindler elevators, they bought a home in Center and never moved again. If you asked Doris at any time how she was doing, she always responded that she was wonderful. She was a genuine optimist and always had a kind word.

She is preceded in death by her dear husband Bo; her daughter, Susan; her parents; her precious sister, Joyce Weatherall; and her great-niece, Shelby Weatherall.

Left to cherish her memory are Nephews: William (Bill) Weatherall and wife Marguerite of The Woodlands, Texas Charles Weatherall and wife Carol of Denton, Texas

Cousin:  Etola Jones and husband Micky of Huxley, Texas Great-nieces and nephews and numerous friends

The family would like to thank Doris’ caregivers, Jennifer Edge, Mercy Moody and husband L.C., Vicky Sneed, and many others who have helped Doris over the past 6 years. Bo’s last wish was that Doris would be able to stay home and never reside in a nursing home and that was made possible because of your devotion to her. Also, much appreciation to Affinity Hospice for making Doris more comfortable.

Visitation will be at noon on Thursday, December 29 at Watson & Sons in Center, Texas. A graveside service will follow at 1 in Oaklawn Cemetery with Bro Gordon Vaughn officiating.

After this accident they managed to acquire the house that she lived in until her husband’s death. She often traveled to Mexico alongside her husband and children to see their families. She continued to do this even after her husband’s death. One of her last wishes was to travel to Mexico to see her family and which she managed to do before her passing. Maria was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend to those who knew her. She loved to crochet, read, dance and loved her little dog “Baby.” Even though she was reserved she loved her family dearly and was proud of her five daughters, one son, five sons in-law, twenty-five grandchildren, two grandsons in-law, one granddaughter in-law and six great-grandchildren.

Jane Elizabeth McAllister Smith Smith Fields Phelps

Jane Elizabeth McAllister Smith Smith Fields Phelps, 70, cashed out of this life on December 2, 2022 in Houston, Texas surrounded by her husband of 40 years and daughter of 36 years. 

Jane was born in Nacogdoches, Texas on November 22, 1952 to William McAllister (Mack) Smith and Clara Elizabeth (Betty) Palmer Smith. She was a first generation Texan and sometimes imagined herself as a southern bell. She was raised in Chireno, Texas in a pine cabin built by her daddy. Growing up she loved horses and building pine straw houses with her best friends. Here she met Charlotte Singleton and they remained best friends for the rest of Jane’s life. As a girl she traveled every summer to Waverly, Tennessee to visit her Aunt Barbra where her love of horses met her love of mischief. She attended boarding school in Connecticut and later, the Sorbonne in Paris, France. She didn’t learn a lick of French but she pretended she did. Upon visiting her in Paris, her aunt and uncle were relieved to see while she had become a hippy, she at least bathed. 

She later moved back to Texas and then promptly to San Francisco to explore a brief, ill-advised marriage to her first husband that she had met while in Europe. After she realized the mistake of marrying someone with the same last name, she high-tailed it back to Texas where she started working in Center for Dr. Robert I. Hughes. She worked with Robert for nearly 40 years where they became chosen family. A second marriage (and friendship) occurred when she met Gene and his son Alphaa. Alphaa walked so that Dianne could later run. Another one of Jane’s spoils from her split with Gene was her friendship with Dianne Murphee. Dianne, whom she named her only daughter after, became her best friend of a certain number of years that neither would divulge.

In the fall of 1980, Jane met Mark E. Phelps and while the story told of their meeting has been changed a few times over the years, it’s safe to say they were immediately smitten.  They married in 1982 and celebrated 40 years married this past July.  Dianne came along eventually and Jane did her best to show Dianne how to be a lady. She failed, but Dianne does know what fork to use.

  Jane loved to tell jokes and stories and while they usually fell flat, she thought she was hilarious and that is truly what matters most. She loved to play bridge, chain smoke cigarettes and drink coffee. She loved to play the slots and to visit the casino. She had a sometimes green thumb and educated Dianne on all the flowers.  Her love of hummingbirds resulted in her sometimes having hundreds of hummingbirds visit her feeders at a time. She enjoyed fine China and silver but was not above rolling up an enchilada into a napkin to take with her for later. Jane thought of herself as crafty and Dianne gaslighted her into thinking she could sell her handmade ornaments on Etsy. Jane adored Christmas and tradition, something she passed onto her daughter. She hoarded Kleenexes and straws, hated drinking water and never finished anything that she opened in the pantry. She loved animals and when asked before she passed who she was excited to see she immediately answered “the dogs”.  She was competitive and not above cheating even when Dianne was a small child. She was generous and loved giving gifts. She was tender hearted and loved to hold hands.

A brief battle with lung cancer that spread throughout her body devastated her family but Jane remained strong for us all. She gave it hell and we are so proud of her.

  Jane is preceded in death by her parents, Mack and Betty Smith, and brother Richard Dutton. 

The gratitude the Phelps family have for the nurses and doctors and staff at M. D. Anderson is immeasurable. 

 Jane left a large hole in the hearts of her family and will be missed with every breath. 

 Rest well, my little Jewish mouse. 

Funeral service will be at 10:00 a.m., Saturday, December 10, 2022, at Watson & Sons Funeral Home in Center with visitation at 9:00 a.m.  Interment will be at Lower Chireno Cemetery in Nacogdoches County.

Jane is survived by: Her favorite husband, Mark Phelps Daughter, Dianne Phelps  Stepson, Alphaa Fields  Special friend, real daughter, accomplice and chauffeur: Alma Jaimes  Sister, Louise Nelson of Punta Gorda, Florida Brother, Bigs and Judy Smith of Boise Idaho  Sisters in Law:  Jon Rholes of Kyle  Laura Jo Richardson and Kirk of Jasper A host of nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews.  Innumerable friends. 

Pallbearers: Joe Parker, Billy Ihlo, Alphaa Fields, Robby Hughes, Troy Bara and Aditya Atholi  Honorary pallbearers: Dr. Robert Hughes, Ryan Rholes, Dr. L. E. Golden, and Terry Harris  Most say in lieu of flowers, but truly, she wanted all the flowers.
