Barbara Lynne Lane

Deceased (1999?)
I spoke with Barbara's aunt a few days ago. She can't remember Barbara's married name, but she said that Barbara had cancer and died in Cross Plains about 10 years ago. She told me that Barbara's daughter's names were Becky and Susan, but she couldn't remember their last names either. Maybe she will get in touch with them and call me back. Anyway for now, we can mark Barbara's name as deceased. Joyce. Update 06/18/09.

(click to enlarge)ODESSA Sharryon Dean Willmann, 71, of Odessa, passed away Tuesday, November 20, 2012, at the Hospice House in Odessa, Texas. She was born April 10, 1941, in Hobbs, N.M., to Web and Dean Longino. 
She is survived by her mother; brother, Jimmy Longino and wife Joyce of Odessa; daughters, Christi Owens of Litchfield Park, Arizona and Cathi Echols and Husband Randy of Odessa; grandchildren, Ashley Owens, Stacey Motley and husband Aaron, Kyle Owens and wife Stephanie, Elizabeth Goetz, Katie Goetz, Alesha Echols, Lindsay Sheaffer and husband Gavin, Brooke Rapp and husband Tim, and seven precious great-grandkids; niece, Julie Salmon and Husband Tommy; nephew, Jeff Longino and wife Rebecca.
She is preceded in death by her father; baby, Stacey Whiteley; daughter, Kelli Willmann; sister in law, Judy Longino. Sharryon was raised in Odessa where she grew up with many wonderful, life-long friends. As a young adult she left Odessa for Arizona, where she developed a great love for the mountains. However, she eventually returned home to the flatlands of Odessa. She loved reading and had a true thirst for knowledge. While in her 40's she returned to school and received her degree in psychology. She worked at MHMR before returning to school yet again and receiving her teaching certificate. She taught special needs children in Kermit and Odessa during which time she was awarded "Teacher of the Year." She was an avid volunteer. She donated her time and resources to many organizations. One of her favorites was Mission Odessa where she shared the love of Jesus with the kids of Odessa. Sharryon was a God fearing, strong, independent woman. She led by example, practiced what she preached and knew beauty was only skin deep. She was always on the side of the underdog and had a great desire to right the wrongs of the world. Mind your P's and Q's Sharryon and know you are loved and greatly missed. Memorial services will be Monday, November 26, 2012 at 4PM at Hubbard-Kelly Funeral Home Chapel, with Rev. Clark Racca officiating. Update 12/02/2012
