Billie Lavern Howard

September 5, 1933 — August 9, 2019

Billie Lavern Howard was born in Post, TX on September 5, 1933, and passed away on August 9, 2019, in Lubbock, TX.

Billie was preceded in death by her loving husband of more than 60 years, Freddie, her parents C.W. Sr. and Lorene Hunt, brother C.W. (Dub) Hunt, Jr., sister Navelle Brooks, daughter-in-law Angel Howard, and granddaughter Jennifer Lee Howard.

Also left to cherish her memory are several brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Billie loved her family. She was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. Her door was always open and she was always ready to host anyone who walked in the door. She was a fabulous cook, and many were known to call her with a request for their favorite and a heads up of when they would be there, and she was happy to oblige. She was a fierce competitor in 42 and Skip-Bo and was an avid reader. Billie was a longtime supporter of Meadow One Act Plays and enjoyed watching her children perform. She had a wonderful sense of humor and was known to be a little bit mischievous!

Billie’s family would like to express thanks and gratitude to Adams Assisted Living Community in Wolfforth, TX where Billie resided for the past two years, receiving the best possible care, attention, and love.

Visitation will be Friday, August 16, 2019, from 5-7 PM at the Brownfield Funeral Home. Graveside Services will be at 10 AM on Saturday, August 17, 2019, at the Terry County Memorial Cemetery.
