Ella Laura Pesak Krobot

Ella Laura Pesak Krobot reached her 101st birthday at the home of her granddaughter Laura Gordon on June 10, 2019, which she celebrated, alert and happy, with loving family members. On July 17 she sighed her last breath in the arms of Laura, with her granddaughter Karen Wade on the phone and there in spirit. “Me-me” was preceded on the way home by her husband Charles Krobot, a long-time oil field engineer with Dow Chemical in Bay City, her daughter Charlotte Karen Hulen, an accomplished artist who died as a very young mother, son Franklin Gerald Krobot, an expert “land man” in the oil exploration business, and infant grandson Harry Hulen III.
She is survived by her grandchildren Laura Hulen Gordon, Denise Krobot LeBouef, Karen Hulen Wade and Jason Krobot.
She is survived by her great-grandchildren Chloe Gordon, Dorothy Rich, Anna Rich, Payton LeBouef, Dillon LeBouef, Charlotte Wade, Clara Wade, Katie Krobot, and Emily Krobot.
She is survived by great-great grandchildren, Dayton LeBouef and Abigail LeBouef.
Ella Laura and Charles Krobot were only a generation away from Czechoslovakia, and both spoke fluent Czech. She was born in Needville, Texas on June 10, 1918 to Antone and Hermina Pesak. She witnessed the great depression while growing up; it was a difficult time, but her parents were farmers and were able to manage and survive by growing cotton. Ella Laura enjoyed polka music and “Bohemian”dances. She enjoyed cooking the fish and deer meat that Charles frequently brought home and was famous for her poppy seed kolaches. Being self-educated themselves, they insisted on education for Charlotte and Franklin, who both attended Texas A&M.
