She graduated with honors from Beaumont High School which was a very new building at that time. She received her Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Texas. Her first job was working for the state of Texas and she was located in Waco, where she met and married the love of her life Harry Dillashaw. They moved to Houston and had a wonderful life together for 63 years. Harry preceded her in death in January of 2001. Survivors include her son, Harry Dillashaw Jr.; her daughter, Patsy Jones with husband Cary; five grandchildren and five great grandchildren. Her family and friends will always cherish the memory of her extraordinary intellect and integrity as well as this positive outlook on her happy life Ė to quote W.R. Hearst,

So donít ask why

We live or die

Or wither or when we go

Or wonder about the mysteries

That only God may know.
