Clara Belle Martin Biery (C.B.) was born January 5, 1922 in Lovelace, Hill County, Texas and died August 20, 2014. Following graduation from Brackenridge High School in 1939, she went to work for the Travelers Insurance Company in the Milam Building. A new friend and co-worker, Dorothy Biery Hoagland, introduced her to Dorothy's brother, Sam. Thus began a courtship, marriage and love story which lasted seventy-three years. Mother was the glue that held the family together, making sure her husband and children were cared for, guided, encouraged and loved. She was active in PTA, Woodlawn (now University) Methodist Church and from 1970 to 1985 was registrar at Thomas Jefferson High School. Her beloved Sam predeceased her on June 22, 2014. She is survived by son, Chief United States District Judge Fred Biery; daughter, Anna Lisa Tamez and husband, Daniel D. Tamez, Jr., M.D.; four grandchildren: Samuel P. Bluntzer
