Barbara Kay Grosser

September 18, 1943 — April 5, 2019

Barbara Kay Morgan Grosser passed away peacefully in her home on April 5, 2019, surrounded by her loving family after a courageous battle against cancer.  Barbara was a gentle and kind woman who lived a life of humble gracefulness. She was a devoted wife, mother, sister, aunt, friend, mother-in-law,  grandmother, and great-grandmother. Her family was her world.   Barbara was born on September 18, 1943 in Mission, Texas, to Abe and Mary (Flanagan) Morgan.  After a memorable childhood in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas (especially living in the oil field camps), she met the love of her life, Roy Martin Grosser, and they were married on November 16, 1962.   In 1971, they arrived in Wharton with their young family and spent the rest of their years with a strong community of family and friends in Wharton.   A devoted mother of four boys, Barbara loved being involved in their many activities, including band trips, swim meets, scouting, and sports teams.  She also served as president of Wharton Little League and WHS Band Parents.  After the boys were grown, she enjoyed keeping up with all of her grandchildren and their busy schedules.   She participated in Community Bible Study for several years and joined a ladies group that knitted prayer shawls for those in need of comfort.   In addition to her parents, Abe Morgan and Mary Heskett, Barbara was preceded in death by her husband, Roy; her brother, David Morgan; her great-grandson, Adam Martin Grosser; and her niece, Sheila Booth.   Those left to cherish her memories include her four sons and daughters-in-law: Thomas and Letia Grosser of Estes Park, CO; Allen (Zipper) and Gina Grosser of Wharton, TX; Jeff and Julie Grosser of Round Rock, TX; and Scott and Laura Grosser of Wharton, TX; sister and brother-in law, Sharon and Don Booth of Mena, AR; sister-in-law Agnes Morgan of Sweeny; sister-in-law and brother-in-law Louise and Ralph Raymont of Cleveland, OH; grandchildren: Chandra Longoria and husband Phillip, Chayla Grosser, Kristal Grosser, Charae Garza and husband Carlos, Jenna Grosser, Rachel Grosser, Sean Grosser, Roy Charles Grosser, Ashlee Streett, Morgan Grosser, Sarah Grosser, Emma Grosser, Jacob Grosser, Seth Grosser, and Belle Grosser; great-grandchildren, Caylee and Carson, Carter, Kyland, and Darius Jr., as well as many extended family members and treasured friends.   The family wishes to express their gratitude to the many caregivers and visitors who lovingly brightened her final days, especially the volunteers of Houston Hospice and Lois Dorris.   Memorials in memory of Barbara Grosser may be made to Houston Hospice, 1905 Holcombe Blvd., Houston TX 77030.   A celebration of life service will be held at Caney Creek Church on May 18th at 10:30 am.
