Dorothy Dibrell Bittick

Obituary Condolences

Dorothy Dibrell Bittick Dorothy Dibrell Bittick gently passed away on January 22, 2013 in her home in Austin, Texas. The youngest of four children, she was born in Seguin on December 20, 1924 to Winnifred and Harvey Dibrell. During World War II, Dorothy worked at the draft board. In 1946, she married Maurice Dean Bittick. After Maurice graduated from college, the family moved to Port Neches, then Houston, finally settling in Austin in 1956 with their four children. In Austin, she worked for the Department of Public Safety and then for University of Texas in the Women's Athletic Department. Still the holder of season tickets, she was an exceptionally enthusiastic Lady Longhorn fan. She enjoyed watching all kinds of sports - especially if it involved a Texas team. Dorothy's life was rich in faith, charity, and dancing. She was a life-long Methodist and a member of Crestview United Methodist Church. She was active in Methodist Youth Fellowship when her children were young, and remained active in United Methodist Women. She helped with the annual church bizarre, donating her delicious homemade cakes, participated in charitable activities, and sang in the choir for many years. She was also a member of the Federation of Women Club. Throughout their marriage, Maurice and Dorothy enjoyed dancing. She was active in community theatre and creative dance. That love of dance two-stepped its way through her retirement where she was known to line dance and attend most Senior Activity Center dances. When she was 50, Dorothy learned to play golf, becoming an avid golfer well into her 80's. Save MUNI!!! Dorothy was preceded in death by her husband, Maurice and her brother, Harvey Dibrell. She is survived by brothers, Marvin Dibrell (Las Vegas) and Robert Dibrell (Houston), son, Bill Bittick and his wife, Sally (Kyle), son, Steve Bittick and his fiancé, Rhonda Weaver (Austin), son, John Bittick and his sweetheart, Annette Weingartner (Austin), and daughter, Kathy Bittick Becker and her husband, Robert (Kyle); grandchildren, Jennifer Bittick Warner, Chris Bittick, Seth Bittick, Erin Smith Bernsen, Shea Bittick Bridges, Amy Bittick Groover, Ryan Bittick, Shawn Bittick, and Ethan Becker; great-grandchildren, Audrey, Dalton, Taryn, Kaelin, Jacqueline, Braden, Stoney, Blake, and Cash. Friends are cordially invited to a visitation with the family from six o'clock until eight o'clock in the evening, on Friday, the 25th of January 2013, at Cook-Walden Funeral Home, 6100 North Lamar Boulevard, Austin, Texas. The funeral service will be conducted at two o'clock in the afternoon on Saturday, the 26th of January 2013, at Crestview United Methodist Church, 1300 Morrow Street, Austin, Texas with Rev.
