Funeral services for Betty (Eakin) Hahneman were held on Saturday, April 2, 2016, at the First United Methodist Church in Kosse. Rev. Dr. Rita Sims officiated and her grandson, Ramsey Rabie assisted. Burial followed in the Kosse City Cemetery. Betty Frances Stone was born in 1927 in a small Arkansas town, the only daughter of Leona and Lester Stone. She grew up in Glenwood, Arkansas, surrounded by family and the foothills of the Ozarks. She was an excellent student and graduated High School at 16 years old. Growing up with three brothers had taught her much she needed to know to be confident in herself and very independent. She convinced her parents to agree to declare her an emancipated minor and she started working at 16. Her first big job took her to work at the Atomic Energy Commission as a secretary. Betty married her high school sweetheart Billy Jim Eakin in 1945.

Funeral services for baby, Miles Owen, were held Wednesday, March 23, 2016, in the Groesbeck Funeral Home, with Reverend J. R. Tapley officiating. Burial followed in the Prairie Grove Cemetery, with Matt Reid serving as the pallbearer. Miles Grayson Owen was born February 27, 2016 (at 24 weeks gestation) in the Medical Center of Arlington, and lived there for the next twenty-three days. He was an incredibly strong spirit - the single strongest little being his mother ever knew. However, he lost his fight a little after 8:00 A.M. on Monday, March 21, 2016. His mother, Molly Owen, was assisted by his aunt Samantha Owen and his uncle Art Grossman in staying by his side continually throughout his struggle. The whole family was in support of his fight to live. They know that his grandmother, Sylvia Owen, who passed away in 2014, was waiting for him, to greet him, scoop him up, and give him all the kisses she would have wanted to give him in life.

Alice Jean Etta Short

Alice Jean Etta Short was born April 7, 1925 to Thomas Amon and Willetta Short in Rochester, Texas. Her father was a band director, and music was a vital part of her upbringing. She played both the cornet and the trumpet and entered many competitions. At the age of 9, she won first place in the South Division music contest in West Texas. Graduating from Mathis High School at age 16 in 1941, she joined musical friends for a long concert tour to several states. Jean Etta, as her family called her, changed her name to Jean as an adult. During the war she worked as a secretary between two Army Air Corps bases: Aloe Army Airfield and Foster Army Airfield. That was a wonderful memory for her because she loved to dance. Jean went to college at the University of Texas where she met and married another musician, Melvin King. Mel played the trombone and the baritone horn. They were married January 26, 1947 and both completed their BA in music a few months later.
