Tommy Hays Stubbs

“Lordy mercy.”

June 16, 1936 — June 15, 2020

Tommy Hays Stubbs, beloved husband, father, and Papa, drew his last breath June 15, 2020, mainly, we suspect, to prevent being a year older the next day. Tommy was born in Baytown, Texas to Thomas and Marguerite Stubbs.

Tommy had a sweet spirit and was a kind man.

He had a firm understanding of what was important — the simplicity of living a life with those you love.

He loved his immediate and extended family very deeply and placed high value on those relationships.

Tommy loved being with his family, watching his grandkids grow and being involved in their lives.

Tommy could often be found tending to his oversized garden. His love of gardening was known by most, and he often produced so much produce that he had some to share when he came by to visit.

He delighted in sharing his love of gardening with his grandkids.

Always the one to take the grandkids to look for worms and ladybugs, he loved showing each of them the wonders of nature. As a life member of the Fort Bend County Fair Association, Tommy enjoyed volunteering and being involved in the yearly Livestock Show.

With his cowboy hat and boots, he enjoyed the time he spent volunteering, supporting, and purchasing livestock at the sale.

While Tommy spent most of his career at Nalco Chemical Company, it was perhaps his post-retirement job as a salesman that he really relished his time meeting customers, chatting about the day, and delivering the orders most often with a bag of fresh produce from his garden.

Tommy is preceded in death by his first wife, Virginia Stubbs, by his sister, Barbara Shult, and by his brother, David Stubbs. Tommy is survived by his second wife, Kathleen Stubbs, and his brother, Jimmy Stubbs (wife Pam). He also leaves behind his son Thomas Stubbs (wife Mindy), and his daughter, Laura Shepherd, grandchildren Ty Stubbs, Sarah Stubbs, Katherine Shepherd Lane (husband Ethan) and Jackson Shepherd along with numerous nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be held from 12:00 p.m. until service time at 1:00 p.m., Friday June 19, 2020 in the Chapel of Davis-Greenlawn Funeral Home in Rosenberg with Associate Pastor Lawrence Tate officiating. Interment will follow Greenlawn Memorial Park in Rosenberg.

Elizabeth (Betty) Weiss Stern left her earthly home and entered her heavenly home in the early morning hours of Tuesday, June 16, 2020 in Needville, TX. She was born November 14, 1924 in Brenham, TX to Robert Fredrich and Elizabeth Mahlmann Weiss, baptized on December 28, 1924 at Salem Lutheran Church by Rev. William Utesch and confirmed on September 25, 1938 at St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church of Brenham by Rev. Arthur Hartmann.

Elizabeth attended Brenham public schools and graduated salutatorian from Brenham High School on May 29, 1942. She began working in the Washington County A.S.C. office, located in the Courthouse in Brenham from 1942-1944. Elizabeth married the love of her life of 68 years, Arthur Lee (A.L.) Stern, in Brenham on Sunday, April 9, 1944. A.L. and Betty reared their family in East Bernard and Rosenberg where she was a steadfast housewife and meticulous bookkeeper for the family farming and ranching business. She was a long time member of Trinity Lutheran Church where she spent countless hours in Ladies Aid, Altar Guild, Church Choir, Board of Education and Sunday School. Elizabeth enjoyed visiting and singing with shut-ins and the elderly. She was a devoted wife, and a loving and caring mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.

She showed her love and support by attending numerous events and milestones of her family’s lives. Elizabeth thoroughly enjoyed cheering for her Texas Aggies and Houston Astros, fishing, playing cards, dominos, Skipbo, slots, and especially winning Bingo with her many friends, but more than anything, she loved singing old gospel favorites.

She is preceded in death by her husband; her parents; two infant brothers; brother, Arthur Weiss; sister, Alice Kolwes; nieces, Diane Kolwes and Dana Neumann and nephew, Paul Ohlenbusch.

Elizabeth leaves her loving family to cherish her memory: daughter, Dr. Marie (Bill) Plemons; son, Dr. John (Debbie) Stern; daughter, Sandra (Randy) Muegge; son, Reggie (Valerie) Stern and daughter, Debra (Butch) Butler; grandchildren, Tamara (John) Jobe, Kelli (Larry) Moore, Dr. Leah (Dr. Amol) Bhatki, Amy Stern, Keli (Ronny) Smith, Amber (Brandon) Farrell, Sarah (Cory) Meals, Dr. Aaron Muegge, Kyle (Sharla) Muegge, Cailee Butler and Breanna Butler; great grandchildren, Jaxon and Lauren Jobe, Elizabeth Moore, Aria and Samara Bhatki, Makala Smith, Faith Farrell, Finley, Ivy and Layla Meals, Reagan Muegge; step great- grandchildren: Autumn (Cisco) Pequeno, Austin and Madison Moore; step great-great-grandchild, Scarlett Pequeno; sister, Doris (Herman) Ohlenbusch; many nieces and nephews; and fur babies, Precious and Smokey.

She was lovingly cared for by Rita Sauceda, who became her best friend and devoted caregiver, as well as many staff members at Cambridge Square Assisted Living in Rosenberg and Reliable Oaks Assisted Living in Needville.

Pallbearers: Dr. Aaron Muegge, Kyle Muegge, John Jobe, Larry Moore, Ronny Smith and Brandon Farrell

Honorary Pallbearers: Nieces and Nephews

Elizabeth was truly a blessing as well as the matriarch, leaving a Christian legacy for her entire family. The family will always remember the love and devotion she had for her Lord and Savior, family and friends, her kindness and thoughtfulness and special ability of spreading love, laughter and the joy of life. Her smile and positive attitude will be missed, but all are comforted, knowing that she is now at peace in God’s loving arms.

A visitation will be held at Trinity Lutheran Church in Rosenberg on Friday, June 19, 2020 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM followed by a funeral service at 11:00 AM. A graveside service will follow at Davis-Greenlawn Memorial Park in Rosenberg.
