Barbara Jean Hoyt Blanchard

Blanchard, Barbara Jean Hoyt


Our precious mother was a very prolific writer. So we have to decided to let her explain her essence through her writings ….


Who Am I?


I am child of god.


I am a daughter – born to Irene Leona and Oscar Stafford Hoyt Jr. (D),my Dad was Charles “Chuck” Goff. I am a mother to three lovely children- Lisa Kane, Jacqueline Bowers and Brian Blanchard who I love unconditionally as God loves me. I am a mother-in-law to Derek Bowers and Theresa Sowers Blanchard.


I am a Grandmother and GiGi to many grandchildren who I adore- Amber, Shane, Tamela (Burton), Michael and Cassie Cramer, Megan Myers, Ariah Blanchard, Landon and Ainsley Cramer, London and Phoenix DeWitt and Dennis and Kaitlyn Burton.


I am a sister to John St. John, Patricia and Wayne Hoyt, an Aunt to Debbie, Jay and children.


I am a Christian sister, a spiritual seeker and a “Woman of Worship” serving God in whatever way He asks. I am a sinner forgiven in Christ and striving to live my life better, to live God’s way.


I am a caregiver and an opportunist, looking daily for opportunities to help others, even in small ways.


I am a retiree from both Kodak Co. and Dow Chemical. But I loved my job at the Brazosport Fine Arts Museum. 


I am a friend to an ever- growing circle of women and men.


I am a neighbor who tried to live in peace with those around me and who seeks to know them better.


I love to be outdoors surrounded by the majesty that God has created. The order and beauty of creation never cease to amaze me. A God who can speak something like nature and man into being is capable of doing anything!


~Barbara Blanchard * edited


She was the greatest Mother, Grandmother and our best friend. She will be missed greatly by so many. On Sunday at Quintana beach, as per her wishes, we will be scattering her ashes from a Jaguar convertible as we drive down the beach playing some of her favorite music.


Memorial will be held August 11, 2018, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at, Taylorcrest Condominiums Clubhouse, 1500 Bay Area Blvd., Houston, Texas 77058.

Williams, Jean Lavonne  

Jean Lavonne Williams, 80 , of Angleton , passed away peacefully Sunday, July 29, 2018, at her home, surrounded by family. Jean was born December 10, 1937, to Tom and Iva Skinner in Freeport, Texas. She was a proud wife, mother, grandma and great grandma. 

She is survived by her husband, Roger Williams. He was the love of her life and they shared 62 wonderful years together. She is also survived by three children, Terrie Porras and husband Armando of League City, Mark Williams and wife Cindy of Angleton, and Tom Williams of Angleton. She also has eight grandchildren, Veronica Triplett and husband Dustin, Eric Porras, Nickie Zorzi and husband Seth, Lauren Moore and husband Mark, Kayla Molling and husband Jake, Ellen Krueger and husband Ben, and Derek and Westley Williams. She has 17 great grandchildren, Jacob Carmona, Alec Vela, Jordyn, Julia, Joscelyn and Jaden McKenzie, Jasmine and Erica Porras, Peyton, Annabelle, Addison and Avery Moore, Rylie, Easton and Granger Molling, Josiah and Sarah Krueger. 

She was preceded in death by her parents, Tom and Iva Skinner; her granddaughter, Amanda McKenzie; her grandson, Phillip Porras; and her great grandson, Hudson Molling. 

Jean was full of life and loved to spend time with her family. Some of her greatest memories were simple times spent with her kids, grandkids, and great grandkids. They brought such joy to her life. She loved to give to her family and friends. For years she has gone to garage sales and thrift stores looking for treasures for each loved one. She was particularly fond of angels, meticulously searching for just the right one for each family member. 

She also loved animals, especially cats. She was very tenderhearted and cared for each and every animal with love. When an animal shelter had to close its doors she took in all of the cats and found them new homes. 

She worked many jobs throughout her life, including the State Prison in Huntsville, several doctor’s offices, Brazoria County Auditors, Kelly Services and owned a real estate company — Blue Ribbon Investments. She was never afraid of a challenge and took on various jobs throughout her life. She set a great example for all of us. 

Jean and Roger welcomed 12 foreign exchange students into their home over a period of 10 years. Many of the students have stayed in contact with Jean to this very day. She loved having a house full of children. 

She had many people who have been there for her during her long battle with cancer. Her husband, Roger never left her side and was the best nurse anyone could ever ask for. Married for over 62 years, they had a love for each other that is unmatched by anything on earth. 

There were many other family and friends there during the entire illness. Carole Small — her hospice nurse of three years was amazing, as was Allen Ritchie her Chaplain. Her friend Beth Willy was there for love and support and did many Bible studies with Jean. Her Bunko friends, Margarite, Phyllis, Nora, Kim and Penny. Other friends who supported her, June, Crystal, Geneva, Tammy, the Fuquas. Janet France had one of the biggest hearts and has cooked many meals as well as coming over whenever anything was needed.  

Jean loved the Lord with all her heart and made a decision to follow him many years ago. She loved to read the Bible and study God’s word. She also loved our country. She was extremely patriotic, and reminded each of us the we have a responsibility to make the world a better place. 

She was one of the most caring, loving people you could ever meet and will be missed by so many. 

A memorial service celebrating the life of Jean Williams will be held at 3 p.m. on Saturday, August 4, 2018, at Northway Baptist Church, 1421 Buchta Road, Angleton. Visitation will be held at 2 p.m. 

In lieu of flowers the family would like donations to go to St. Jude Children’s Hospital at or St. Jude, 262 Danny Thomas Place, Memphis, TN 38105.

Hudson Sr., Ray Shawn; Hudson Jr., Ray Shawn "Baby Ray" and Rivera, Maya

It’s been two long weeks but seems like it was yesterday when we saw Maya, Baby Ray and Ray Shawn Sr.’s charming smiling faces. “The family is still having a hard time facing reality because we had faith and hopes of them coming home,” said a family member. We all miss them so much just expression of words can’t be explained.

Ray Shawn had importance in so many lives. He held so many titles; he was a son, grandson, father, nephew, cousin, friend, very hard worker and he would even lend his shoulder for anyone needing help to lean on. Ray Shawn was expected to graduate with his associate degree in welding this summer which he worked hard for. He had plans and dreams of getting his family a nice home and a car for his older son Javen. Ray Shawn said,” Javen is growing up he will need a car soon.”

Ray Shawn was employed at the Port of Freeport as a driver, latcher and helper. He worked so hard that the foreman’s would argue over who’s group he would work with. He was also an excellent hard working landscaper whom he learned the trade from his loving father, Chawn Hudson, Sr. Ray Shawn was of great importance on his family ranch. He would ride and break new horses and also make sure everyone had everything they needed before riding. He would also move hay in the field, load, unload horses and cow feed for the ranch. All three of them played their roles on the ranch. The family and them would travel far to trail rides and rodeos as a family.

Ray Shawn loved his family and loved Maya so much. He always made sure both of their cars stayed clean, he would always attend his children soccer and basketball games. Ray Shawn would take Baby Ray to school at Tiny Treasures, pick him up and then help Baby Ray with his homework. He was also teaching Baby Ray how to mow grass and play drums like his father taught him. Baby Ray had big dreams of becoming a bull rider. He would get on barrels and put his hands in the air and act if he was riding a big bull. Baby Ray, with his unique beautiful curly hair, is going to be missed by many such as grandparents, uncles, aunts, family, friends and Rosco (the family blue pitbull).

Ray Shawn bought Rosco as a puppy while Maya was pregnant with Baby Ray because he wanted them to grow up together said a family member. Baby Ray loved soccer and sweets. Maya was also very loved by the family. When she didn’t show up with Ray Shawn the family would ask “Where is Maya and Baby Ray?” Maya would offer her signature massages to people, family and even the horses. She also loved to cook and eat.

Ray Shawn would make time on Sunday’s to take his family to church in Fresno to give God time, following spending quality time with “Granny”.

Both families would like to thank everyone for their support during this difficult time. All three of them will truly, truly be missed. ~ The Hudson Family.  

Celebration of Life Services for Ray Shawn, Baby Ray and Maya will be Saturday, June 30, 2018, at noon. at First Baptist Church Lake Jackson, 401 Yaupon St., Lake Jackson, TX. Please visit our website to leave online condolences, light a candle and send floral arrangements or gifts to their family at

Final arrangements entrusted to Dixon Funeral Home of Angleton (979) 849-8800.
