Patricia Jean (White) Stogdill
October 23, 1951
February 13, 2021
Patricia Jean Stogdill, known to her friends and family as Jean or Jeanie, passed away peacefully surrounded by family at her home in Chappell Hill, Texas on Saturday, February 13, 2021. Jean had fought a courageous battle with kidney cancer for over 10 years, but after winning many battles, she eventually lost the war, and was so looking forward to a new heavenly life without pain and suffering.
Jean was born in Port Arthur, Texas on October 23, 1951 to Walter and Eugenia Grace (McGee) White. A lifelong teacher, from her elementary teaching years in Houston and Brenham, to her time working at Blinn Community College, and to the lessons she taught to her own children throughout their lives.
Jean was a beautiful woman, both outside and inside. Jean had a heart for God like few others. Daily scripture readings and worship were food for her soul. She was an avid book and bible reader, an abysmal Old Maid player and a lover of small-town country life. Her grandchildren were perfection in her eyes, even when, quite obviously, behaving imperfectly. For her, traveling was a passion, visiting tropical locales with her husband Al, taking trips across Texas with her daughter and granddaughter, and touring the Ozarks while visiting her son and his family.
Jean was preceded in death by her father, Walter, her mother, Eugenia Grace, her sisters Carolyn and Karen, and her brother Walter Jr. (Sonny). She is survived by her husband Al Stogdill, her two children Corey (with his wife Veronica, and their sons Owen and Grady), and Tiffany (and her daughter Haley), her two step-sons Brian (with his wife Rebecca and their son Ryan), and Jason, her sisters Barbara (Dee Dee), Elizabeth (Libby), Judith (Judy), Marjorie (Margie), Marilyn, and Betty, and her brother David.
Visitation will be Wednesday, February 24 from 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. and Thursday, February 25 from 8 a.m. until services begin at 4:30 p.m. at Brenham Memorial Chapel. Family will receive visitors Thursday prior to the service from 3:00 until chapel services begin at 4:30 p.m. Friends and family are invited, but please wear a mask and practice social distancing.
A Celebration of Life service will be held at a later date at the Cowboy Church of Brenham. All friends and family will be welcome. Flowers are appreciated, but donations to the Cowboy Church of Brenham are preferable.
