Belva Joyce (Eiland) Barron of Conroe, Texas passed away June 19, 2017. The daughter of Olla Bee and Otis Eiland, Belva was born April 22, 1933, in Rockdale, Texas. When she was a young girl, Belva's family moved to Houston, joining several other German families in the Klein community. After attending Klein High School, Belva married and a year later, her son was born. Over the next two decades, Belva advanced her career as a corporate secretary. While raising her son on her own, she took courses to improve her clerical skills and worked as an administrative assistant at both Houston Lighting & Power and Florida Gas. She developed an exceptional attention to detail and the ability to focus on the particulars of large statistical and bookkeeping projects. She soon earned a position in the legal department at Austral Oil Company and worked there for many years. During this time, she met J.C. Barron and they married in April 1959. After nearly 20 years of marriage, Belva and J.C. purchased 5 acres and moved to Conroe. It was then that Belva began attending Conroe First Assembly, which became a second home and family for her. She dedicated her time and effort to many areas of the church, even when she was working part-time stocking cards at Hallmark or full-time as a school bus driver. In her own words, "from the time I came to First Assembly in 1979 until 2006, I worked in the church office for Brother Brumfield keeping tithing records and ordering supplies, I taught the Sunday School primaries for seven years, I handled the soup kitchen ministry, I edited the PrimeTimers newsletter, and I was a greeter for Sunday services." Belva also typed and edited church cookbooks, taught Vacation Bible School, stuffed eggs for Easter egg hunts, played piano for nursing home services, and prepared countless meals for receptions, banquets, and other church functions. Her deep and abiding faith in Jesus Christ as her Savior was her strongest asset. She set an example for her family and demonstrated to everyone she knew what it meant to be a Christian. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and aunt. Also in the last several years, she became a formidable Chicken Foot player. Belva was preceded in death by her parents, husband, step-children Joy Barron and John Barron, and brother-in-law Ronnie Hunt. She is survived by her son Terry Largent and his wife Linda; her grandchildren, Tammy Largent and Brian Largent and his wife Amanda; her great-grandchildren, Lillian Largent and Madeline Largent; her sister, Carolyn Hunt; her brother, Roland Eiland and his wife Mary; her nieces, Michelle Walker and her husband John, Sharmin Smith and her husband Jonathan, and Marilyn Wilson; her nephew Ronnie Willis; six great nieces and nephews; a great-great niece and a great-great nephew. She is also survived by her good friend of 45 years, Joanne Coberly; her special caregiver, Ruth Falk; numerous loving cousins; and other dear friends. The family would like to thank Mai and Courtney, nurses on the 2nd Floor North at Conroe Regional Hospital, for their exceptional kindness and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty in caring for Belva. Family and friends are invited to attend the funeral service, which will be held at 3:00pm on Friday, June 23, 2017, at Cashner Funeral Home (801 Teas Road, Conroe, Texas 77303) with Pastor Sharon Fridge of Conroe First Assembly officiating and a graveside service will follow.
