  3. Mrs. Beeler was my Kindergarten teacher, over 40 years ago. I remember her very clearly. I can see her at her desk, at the front of the room teaching and guiding us around Grapeland Elementary. I thought she was so beautiful and graceful. She used blow-up letters to introduce each new letter we learned. I’m pretty sure each letter had a face on it. It was very effective, literally, we were meeting a new character. The anticipation of each new letter was exciting. Each week, she chose a “leader”. The leader’s name was unveiled on the bulletin board. It was intense. At nap time, I remember having trouble sleeping, some days, I would watch my friend, Cricket Laminack, sleep, but mostly, I would watch Mrs. Beeler enjoy her lunch at her desk. It was nice and quiet. The lights were off, with just l little sunlight shining in from the windows. She could enjoy this time of peace and her food. I would try to guess what she brought from home, thinking it was healthy, or simply just know that she liked what the cafeteria served that day, if she had a school tray of food. She didn’t get upset with me for not sleeping. We just both enjoyed the peace and quiet, as long as it lasted. Mrs, Beeler, may you rest in peace. I am a teacher now and I hope my students think as fondly of me as I think of you. My deepest sympathy to your family and friends. I am praying for their comfort.

  4. Barbara lived next door to me in the Kappa house at TCU.
    She was a wonderful fun sweet friend!
    She will be missed by all of us!

  5. Condolences to the Crow and Beeler families for the loss of Barbara. I taught with Barbara for many years at Grapeland Elementary. I was so sorry to hear of her illness and death. It happened much to early in her life. I always admired Barbara’s sense of adventure, her love of her family and her devotion to teaching. She was so proud of G. W. and loved to tell about him. Many prayers for your family. Betty Bassett Hoch

  6. Sending prayers. Barbara and George are together again.
