She was also preceded in death by a son, Mark Anthony Hubenak and her brother, Joe Krenek, Jr. Bessie worked 13 years for Wharton ISD as a dessert chief. She loved to bake kolaches, cakes and cookies and share them with her family and friends. She was very devoted to her family, always putting them before herself, especially her grandkids. Besides her family, her greatest love was gardening. She could take a lifeless stick and bring it into full bloom. People would drive from miles around to see her azaleas in bloom. Anyone passing her house would most likely see her working in her yard.
