Verba Lucille Klueh, 95, of Kingsland passed away on Oct. 24, 2013. She was born to Ray and Dona (Hendricks) Hilliard on June 24, 1918 in Killeen.
Mrs. Klueh grew up on a farm in Killeen, Texas during World War II and loved to ride horses. She was the wife of the Reverend 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, Oklahoma. She went on to become a school teacher. Verba was a 50+ year member of PEO.
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; seven great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
She is preceded in death by her first husband of over 30 years, 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.
A memorial service was held at the Kingsland Community Church in Kingsland, Texas on Sunday, Oct. 27, 2013 at 3 p.m. with the Reverend Dick West officiating.
Cremation arrangements were made by Putnam Funeral Home and Crematorium in Kingsland.
