Mrs. Barbara Ann Veit was born August 30, 1933 in Chicago, IL and passed away surrounded by her loved ones, on April 12, 2016.
Barbara was married to Charles Hooper Sr. at a young age and had 5 beautiful children; three sons and two daughters. In 1975, she married William Veit and eight years later they moved to Houston, TX where they spent her remaining years together. Although she worked various positions during her life, they did not define who she was. Of all the titles and accomplishments she achieved throughout her life, the one she was most proud of was being a mother. She was a woman that lived for her family and would do whatever she could for anyone with a smile. Her hobbies included gardening, needlework and she loved cooking and baking. With all the various ailments she endured in her later years, she never complained and was thankful that she was still here for her family. She would be so overcome with emotion if she knew the outpouring love that her family has received in her memory. She will be greatly missed by her family, friends and the many lives she touched.
She is preceded in death by her sons: Charles Hooper Jr. and Richard Hooper Sr.; parents, Clarence and Audrey Poffenberger; brother, Clarence Poffenberger Jr.
