Libby Lynn Moses McCauley died on the morning of July 20, 2013 at her home in Willis, Texas at the age of seventy-three. Libby was a long-time resident of Montgomery County and was highly respected and loved by her family and friends.
Libby is survived by her husband J.W. McCauley, daughter Tanya (Mrs. Leslie) Tilley of Devine, Texas and son John Neal McCauley of Las Vegas, Nevada; grandsons John Lawton Tilley and Carson Tilley of Devine and granddaughters Devinne McCauley, Darian McCauley and Danika McCauley and their Mother, Pamela Harrison McCauley of Las Vegas, Nevada; sister Suanne (Mrs. Carl Todd) VanWay of Victoria, Texas and numerous nieces and nephews. Libby was preceded in death by her parents and sister, Felicia Jo (Mrs. Ross Edward) Norris.
Libby was born in Brenham, Texas on March 1, 1940 to Theron Ellis Moses and Sue Floyd Moses. A short time later the family moved to Shelby County, Texas where six generations of her family had resided since 1835. She had a special place in her heart for all things "East Texas." Reared in a multi-generational household, Libby grew up knowing and loving people of all ages, creeds and color, and they loved her in return.
"Miss Libby" taught Adult Education for Region VI for many years. Classes were held in area schoolhouses, Conroe College, and the Montgomery County Jail. Libby loved her students. She bonded easily with them, imparting encouragement and life-lessons along with the curriculum. Former students, their parents, and even their children are quick to credit "Miss Libby" with having changed their lives. Libby gave her Christian testimony by both word and example. Her generosity knew no limits - time, effort, money, prayer - whatever the need, Libby met it. Few in this county have not been touched in some way by Libby's kindness. She was known for her wit and humor; a few witticisms from Libby could relieve the tensions and sadness from any situation.
Libby and J.W. have made their home in Conroe and Willis for almost fifty years.
Their children attended Conroe schools and they took much pride in their accomplishments. This pride has extended to their grandchildren. Libby and J.W. were active and faithful members of First Baptist Church, Willis. Before illness curtailed their activities, their home was always open to friends and family. Libby was a great cook and she and J.W. were excellent hosts. Libby would like to be remembered by a personal act of kindness proffered in her memory.
Funeral Services will be held on Wednesday, July 24, 2013 at 10:00 A.M. at First Baptist Church, Willis with Pastor Charles Smith officiating. Interment will follow in Garden Park Cemetery. The family will receive friends at Conroe Funeral Directors on Tuesday, July 23, 2013 from 6:00 P.M. until 8:00 P.M.
