Some people only walk this earth for a short time. Their departure reminds us that angels are watching over us. Bernadean, rejoined her heavenly family and gained her wings and went to walk with the angels.

 

She was most proud of her two wonderful grandchildren. She loved spending time with them. by taking them to the park to feed the ducks, letting them scratch her lottery tickets with her, and letting them dig through her purse for all her change. She loved dressing up as a clown for their birthday parties as they were growing up.

 

Bernadean truly lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures; chatting with friends and family, spending time with her friends and family, going to the lake, to the sandhills to ride four-wheelers, camping and going deer hunting with them. She loved to paint and do woodwork. She was extremely creative and would put her paintings on many different canvases including cow skulls, sawblades, old milk cans and anything else she could find.

 

Bernadean was preceded in death by mom Juanita Harrison, dad Kenneth Harrison, three brothers Leon Welch, Mitchell Welch and Harry Gipson and one sister Billy Welch.

 

Bernadean is survived by her children Fonzy Abeyta and wife Susie of Jal, NM, Fonda Abeyta of Dallas, TX, four sisters; Martha June Ziegler and husband Howard of Snyder, TX, Debra Kay Bale and husband Larry of Fort Worth, TX, Tina Nadine Haynes of Colmansville, TX and Karen Lynn Shuler and husband Ricky of Fort Worth, TX, one brother; Donald Ray Welch and wife Kathy of Big Lake, TX and her two loving grandchildren Danica and Nathanial Abeyta of Jal, NM.
