Ursula "Granny" George, beloved wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt and friend went to be with her Lord on June 17, 2009. Ursula was born on April 16, 1913, in Santa Anna, Texas, to Pearl and Horry Parris. Growing up on a farm near Bradshaw, Texas, she graduated from High School with 5 other students in her graduating class. Then on to Texas Tech University where she received her BS in Home Economics. From her first teaching job in Forsan, Texas, she moved to Belton where she met and married Wilburn "Bill" George on January 23, 1942.
In 1946 Bill came back from WWII and they settled in San Antonio. Ursula taught home economics at Alamo Heights High Scholl for 17 years where she was a favorite teacher and was loved by all her students. After her retirement, it brought her great joy to run into former students who remembered her and whose lives she had impacted. Ursula and Bill were members of St. Andrews United Methodist Church where Ursula enjoyed a long association with the Wesley Sunday School class and United Methodist Women. She was also an avid and faithful member of Bible Study Fellowship.
Survivors are daughter, Carol Galloway, son, Bob and wife Terry, granddaughters, Debbie Justice and husband Joe, Kitty Santos and husband Rudy, grandsons, Rob George and wife Jan and Scott George, great-grandchildren, Morgan Justice, Mandy and Jacob Santos, her aunt Bernice Wigington, beloved nieces and nephews, Gail Clymer, Dan and Kathy Parris, Mary Ann and Jack Graham and Siri Sevak (Linda) Khalsa.
She will best be remembered for her humble spirit, her quick wit and for being so easy to love. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. The family extends our heartfelt gratitude to Granny's living caregiver, Beverly Moore, whose thoughtful conscientious care was much appreciated. We also wish to thank the team at Amedysis Hospice for their support and encouragement.
