Barbara Stabell, 80, born in Milford, Delaware in 1940, passed away peacefully, on August 17, 2021. Left to cherish her memory are her beloved husband of 63 years, Walter W. Stabell, Jr., their three sons, Walter III, Jeffrey (wife Kelly), and Robert, grandchildren Walt IV, Jackie, Morgan, Shannon, Alex and Andrew, and her sister, Betty Louise Myers. Barbara led a life of faith, hope, and love, and was considered a loyal and devoted friend by all who knew her. She leaves behind a host of friends and colleagues who were forever touched by her caring and kindness.
Barbara grew up in Frederica, Delaware later moving to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania after marrying the love of her life, Walt Jr. The couple moved to the Seabrook, Texas area in 1971, where they have lived happily for over 50 years.
While Barbara enjoyed a fulfilling career at James Avery Jewelers for over 25 years, her true passions were family and friends. She enjoyed entertaining guests, had a knack for making everyday occasions feel special, and was considered a gifted chef and gracious host by all who knew her. Barbara and Walt shared a love for travel, and enjoyed experiencing other regions, cuisines and cultures.
God sent us an angel. May she rest in peace in the arms of our Lord and Father. She will be greatly missed. "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love" (1 Corinthians 13:13). Barbara lived this daily.
