John Lindsley
Bratten, Jr.
1954-2020
To most, he was
someone special
To us, he was everything
John Lindsley Bratten, Jr. joined our Creator on Friday, the 26th of June, 2020, at the age of 66.
He was born in Greenwood, South Carolina, on the 14th of May, 1954, to Dorothy Glennville Duvall and Commander John Lindsley Bratten, Sr.
His family moved to Houston, Texas when he was six years old. Lindsley attended Hunter's Creek Elementary School, Spring Branch Middle School, and Memorial High School. He attended college at the University of Texas when he began his first business, a fencing company that moved quickly into landscaping. Lindsley transitioned into the home building business where he and his cousin, Guil Bratten, built luxury homes in California. Moving back to Texas, he ultimately found his pleasure in real estate development. Lindsley developed Deerwood in Austin, Texas, a premier 500 unit low-income family community. In Austin, he met and fell in love with his wife, Marlene. They made their home in Houston and were filled with joy when their son John was born.
Lindsley is preceded in death by his father, Commander John Lindsley Bratten, Sr. He is survived by his loving mother, Dorothy (97 years young), his wife of 18 years, Marlene G. Bratten, his son, John L. Bratten III, Aunt Bettye Bratten, and numerous cousins. Lindsley enjoyed watching the sunset at Lake Travis, playing golf with friends, flying a twin-engine P Baron, playing the guitar, listening to his favorite music, and strolling around the neighborhood, striking up conversations with everyone he met. He will be remembered as a loving husband and father.
We wish to thank the Memorial Villages Police Department for their faithful patrol of our community, Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church for their overflowing love and support, St. Francis Episcopal School teachers and parents, cousin Martha B. Owen, and close friends Brian and Cindy Atlas.
There will be a graveside service on the 11th of July at noon at Forest Park Lawndale Cemetery, 6900 Lawndale, Houston, Texas 77023.
In lieu of flowers, please consider supporting St, Francis Episcopal High School. https://www.stfrancishouston.org/giving/donate.

"Can't stop thinking about my Uncle Greg. His smile and laugh could light up a room and I..." Emily Luckeroth, CA
Harry Walter Loose passed away on July 5, 2020 after a brief illness brought on by several years of suffering from Parkinson's disease. Harry was born on February 29, 1928 to Florence (Phillips) and Harry W. Loose in Wilmington, Delaware. As a Leap Year baby, Harry celebrated his "23" birthday this past February 29 surrounded by his family.

On August 2, 1952, he married his college sweetheart, Eleanor Williams. Over the next 68 years, they raised two sons and two daughters and were blessed with six grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.

Prior to his marriage to Eleanor, Harry graduated high school in Wilmington and promptly enlisted in the U.S. Army, serving in the Army of Occupation in Japan. Upon his return, he earned a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration at the University of Delaware. Upon graduation he went to work for E.I. DuPont, in Wilmington where he worked for 20 years before accepting a transfer to Houston, Texas where he spent another nine years with DuPont. In 1981, he took early retirement from DuPont and over the next several years worked at Union Carbide and other companies before his retirement.

Harry was very active at Pines Presbyterian Church in Houston, where he was ordained as an Elder and served on virtually all of the committees at one time or another. For over 20 years, he enjoyed being responsible for meeting and greeting guests and helping new members assimilate into the church family. Harry was an active member of the choir for many years, often as a soloist. He chaired the Pastoral Nominating Committee and also served in the 200th Anniversary celebration of his church back in Wilmington.

In his spare time, Harry enjoyed running, tennis and golf and was athletically active well into his 80's with these activities. He also enjoyed bicycling and walking with Eleanor. Harry led a very full and rich life surrounded by a great family and many good friends. Outgoing and respectful, kind and generous, he was a man of great poise and dignity. Harry was a type of man that many aspire to be but few achieve. The world is a better place because Harry spent his 92 years with us and Heaven will be a better place with its newest angel.

Harry was preceded in death by his parents, Florence and Harry Loose and his sister, Florence Betty Norton. Harry leaves behind a loving family, including his wonderful wife, Eleanor; his brother, John Reed Loose and his children, Kenneth Harry Loose and his wife, Laura, Diane Eleanor Dickey and her husband, Douglas, David Carl Loose and Elizabeth Miller and Kathleen Ann Dean and her husband, David. Harry also is survived by his grandchildren, Nicholas and Zachary Loose, Timothy and Elizabeth Loose, Sarah and Nathan Dean and great grandchildren, Violet, Harley and Sheppard.

Eleanor and the family would like to thank all his caregivers who assisted them over the past several years.

Contributions in Harry's memory, can be made to Pines Presbyterian Church, 12751 Kimberly Lane, Houston, TX 77024 or to Houston Area Parkinson's Society (HAPS), 2700 Southwest Freeway, Suite 296, Houston, TX 77098. Service and interment arrangements are pending. The family has entrusted arrangements to Claire Brothers Funeral Home, 7901 Hillcroft Street, Houston, Texas 77081.

Dorothy Jean
(Oberlin) Mills
1922-2020
On June 28, 2020, Dorothy Jean (Oberlin) Mills got her wings and went to walk with the angels. She was 98 years young. Born March 6, 1922, in Kankakee, Illinois, she grew up in Culver, Indiana on Lake Maxinkuckee. It was there that Dorothy dreamed of becoming an actress. She followed her dreams to drama school at Stevens College and the Goodman Theater in Chicago. While at Goodman, she would share the stage with Geraldine Page and Shelley Berman. Her career path took a turn when she moved to San Antonio with her sister. There she met the love of her life, Julian Mills. They married and relocated to Houston, Texas where they had three boys. Dorothy then starred in her biggest roles – wife and mother. She and Julian enjoyed playing canasta, clinking glasses, and sharing boisterous conversation with friends and neighbors. They were devoted members of St. Luke's Methodist Church. She was a master storyteller, soother of hurt feelings, and always full of good advice for her boys. She later shared these talents with her three grandchildren who adored her. Dorothy was predeceased by her parents, Ben and Florence Oberlin, her brother Bill Oberlin, her husband Julian Mills, and her youngest son, Stephen. She is survived by her sister, Audrey Kitchens; her son Jeffrey and his wife, Barbara; her son Brent; her daughter-in-law Elizabeth; and her three grandchildren, Andrew, Julia, and Laura. The family gives heartfelt thanks to the many devoted staff members at Clarewood House in Houston, Texas.
