      Virginia Froebel
      Virginia Froebel, 58, of Bernardo, TX, fondly known as Gingie, died
      on May 26, 2003 due to injuries sustained in an auto accident.

      She was a devoted mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt and friend.

      She was born on March 12, 1945 to Albert and Nita Ripper in Sealy,
      Texas. She was a graduate of Columbus High School. On February 25,
      1968, Virginia married Carlos Wayne Froebel. They have lived with her
      son, Brian, in Bernardo over the last 20 years.

      She loved children and currently was working at St. Paul's Lutheran
      Day Care and previously at St. Anthony's Catholic School, where she
      was known to all the children as "Miss Virginia".

      Virginia is survived by her husband of 35 years, Carlos Froebel; son,
      Brian, 25; mother, Nita Ripper; sisters, Loretta Zweschper and
      husband James and Shirley Supak and husband Jerome; mother-in-law,
      Clara Froebel; numerous other brothers/sisters-in-law; nieces;
      nephews and great-nieces and nephews.

      She was preceded in death by her father, Albert Ripper.

      She was laid to rest on Saturday, May 31, 2003. The service was held
      at St. Anthony's Catholic Church in Columbus, TX at 9:30 a.m. and
      interment followed at St. Roch's Catholic Church in Mentz, TX with
      Fr. Wayne Flagg and Fr. Dan Kahlich officiating under the direction
      of Henneke Funeral Home.

      The pallbearers were Michael Zweschper, nephew; Kelly Markos, nephew-
      in-law; Scott Ripper, cousin; Bryce Froebel, nephew; Reed Froebel,
      nephew; Todd Froebel, nephew; Ryan Beane, close friend; Bob Tait,
      close friend.

      Virginia devoted her life to her family, and she was a loving woman
      with a beautiful smile. She was a selfless person, who continually
      gave to her community and helped in any way that she could. She found
      great joy in gardening, flowers, cooking, and above all, her son,
      Brian, and her three great-nieces, Kaley, Emily, and Elizabeth, who
      always brought a smile to her face and happiness in her voice.

      Gingie, you are deeply missed.
