Obituary

Bessie Faye Abbott passed away Thursday, February 20, 2020 in Cleburne, Texas.
A memorial service for Bessie, 87, of Rio Vista will be conducted at 10:00 A.M., Thursday, February 27, 2020 at the First United Methodist Church in Cleburne. Visitation will be 6:00 – 7:30 P.M., Wednesday at Crosier-Pearson Cleburne funeral home.

Survived by her husband, George William “Billy” Abbott of Rio Vista; son, Gerald Abbott and fiancée Barbara Watson of Cleburne; daughter, Nancy Martin and husband Stuart of Fort Worth; grandchildren, Stephanie Nelson and husband Chris, Kyle Martin and wife Sarah, and Skeete Abbott; great grandchildren, Ainsley Nelson, Brody Nelson, Jocelyn Martin and Macy Martin.

Preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Donald Cobb and T.W. Cobb; daughter, Nina Kay Abbott.

Bessie was born June 25, 1932 in Rosebud, Texas to Thomas Kyser and Lela Faye (Rasco) Cobb. Bessie and Billy were married on April 12, 1953 in Alvin, Texas where they raised their three children. The Abbott family spent much of their time ranching, participating in rodeos and competing in 4-H events. Bessie volunteered as a rodeo secretary and 4-H leader. She worked as a service representative for 20 years with Houston Lighting and Power Company, retiring in 1986. Bessie enjoyed being involved in the Alvin business community as a member of the Chamber of Commerce and American Business Women’s Association where she was a past chapter president. Bessie was a member of the Altar Guild at First United Methodist Church in Alvin until she moved with her husband to Rio Vista in 1995 to be closer to their children and grandchildren.

After moving, Bessie continued her faith walk at the First United Methodist Church in Cleburne actively involved in the Altar Guild and her bible study class. She also organized and hosted several bus trips for the Senior Friends group of Plaza Medical Center in Fort Worth. Mrs. Abbott loved to be with her family and could usually be found at one of her grandchildren’s many activities or snuggling with one of her great grandchildren. Her family and friends will always remember her infectious smile and graciousness.

Memorials may be made to First United Methodist Church Alter Guild 1300 W. Westhill Drive, Cleburne, Texas 76033 or Wings of Hope Equitherapy 4200 CR 806 Cleburne, Texas 76031.
