A memorial service for Verba Lucille Klueh, 95, of Kingsland, was held Sunday at the Kingsland Community Church in Kingsland with the Rev. Dick West officiating.
Mrs. Klueh died Oct. 24, 2013. She was born June 24, 1918, to Ray and Dona (Hendricks) Hilliard in Killeen.
Mrs. Klueh grew up on a farm in Killeen during World War II and loved to ride horses.
She was the wife of the Rev. J. Ray Lawler, who pastored at the Kingsland Community Church in the 1970s. She knew how to keep a neat house for the many church gatherings that were always there.
She was an avid reader and started to go to college while her children were young. It was always a challenge going to different colleges as the Reverend Lawler would move to a different church every three or four years, but she persevered.
Mrs. Klueh graduated the same year, at the same time as her daughter, Leta, from ECU in Ada, Okla. She went on to become a school teacher.
Mrs. Klueh was a 50+ member of PEO.
She was preceded in death by her first husband of over 30 years, the Rev. J. Ray Lawler, her second husband of over 30 years, Lloyd Klueh, a sister, Leta Mae Marshall, daughter Leta Govett and granddaughter, Shari Lawler-Miller.
Mrs. Klueh is survived by her son, Art Lawler, of Ada, Okla.; sister, Frances Reaves of Elgin; grandsons, Brien Lawler of San Antonio, and David Govett and wife, Cathy Junell, of Georgetown;, a granddaughter, Analisa Lawler of Boise, Idaho; step-grandchildren, Serita Lee Blankenship, Steven Robert Klueh, and Andrew Allen Klueh and seven great-grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews.
Cremation arrangements were made by Putnam Funeral Home and Crematorium, 145 Texas Ave., Kingsland, TX 78639.
