This is a repost from Betty Ann Jenkins Williams's Facebook page. Betty Ann is a member of the '71 Class at DHS. Many of you will remember the Jimi & Jack Neal family, including their children David (DHS '67), Henry (DHS '69), and Emily (DHS '71).
This is a long read, plus please take the time......It was 6 weeks yesterday that mother passed away from the complications of a broken hip and pneumonia. I am not really sure why I didn’t post at the time but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. With the help of my family, we were able to keep her at home where she belonged. I miss her terribly but know she is healed, happy and walking perfectly!
I believe in taking a sadness or loss and trying to turn it into something positive. When mother passed, we asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Rosie Theis-Turner Recovery Fund. Rosie is currently in treatment for a reoccurrence of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
Rosie attended FBISD schools and is now a teacher at Drabek Elementary. Rosie is the daughter of Emily Neal (Dulles class of 71), the niece of Henry Neal (Dulles class of 69), and the grand-daughter of Jimi and Jack Neal longtime Fort bend teachers. She is on a leave of absence while going through her treatment. Next week she is scheduled for a stem cell transplant, using her own harvested tissue. Her recovery is moving forward, but she is in need of prayer and financial assistance as she will not be able to return to work this year.
Please consider making a donation to the Rosie Theis-Turner Recovery Fund at http://hope4rose.webs.com/. Checks can be sent in care of Jill Cope, 1515 Tillman, Richmond, TX 77476.
No donation is too small and all are very much appreciated. God Bless you all.
