Page 8 Eq[TA   (AUNT EITER) Etta Mae White known as Aunt Etter to her fami- ly went to heaven on January 31, 2002. She lived 94 years and what experiences those 94 years held. Aunt Etter was a woman of great courage and determina- tion. The traits which her family sometimes thought of as stubborn and hardhead were the same traits that allowed her to help her husband build several suc- cessful businesses, maintain a home, and care for her aging parent and help rear and educate her nephews. Aunt Etter was born in McMahan Texas in 1908, the daughter of Walter W. Long and Donie Elizabeth McGee Long. She lived and went to school in McMahan until she graduated. Then she married Elmer C. White of Dale, Texas in 1926. After their marriage, Aunt Etter and Uncle Elmer moved to Buda, Texas where they lived and worked for almost 50 years. Aunt Etter and Uncle Elmer opened and operated a grocery store in Buda for a number of years. Aunt Etter worked along side Uncle Elmer in the grocery store, and then went home to care for her family. She was an outstanding cook. To this day, none of us can match her chicken and dumplings, peach cobbler, or cookies. Aunt Etter and Uncle Elmer based their life activities arourtd Christian prin- ciples, and put the principles into their daily living. They were always ready to lend a helping hand to oth- ers in need, whether it was extra credit at the store or preparing food or just being a friend. They were mem- bert of the Methodist Church in Buda and later in Lockhart. They attended until poor health stopped Public Notices Obituaries Hays High Walkthrough, from page 1 library as the academic heart of the school so it is eas- ily accessible ,to all students" Stites said. 'dministration is clearly placed to the benefit of vis- itors and staff, as well as improving security?' Currently, Hays High School has multiple build- ings with multiple points of access to the site, Stites said. "In changing this, we would eliminate your site access points to three: student parking lot by South Campus, central that includes bus loop, and the stadi- um gate By reducing some of that, it lowers your them. Uncle Elmer believed in supporting the com- munity. He served on the Buda City Council and was a member of the Buda School Board and the Lions Club. After leaving the grocery business, Uncle Elmer opened and operated a dairy farm. Aunt Etter went to work for Joe oen & Son Jewelers in Austin, Texas. She worked for "Mr. Billy" during the fifties and six- ties. During this time, Aunt Etter and Uncle Elmer welcomed their two nephews into their home after the death of Etter's sister, Janie Beth Stone Lillian. In 1976, Aunt Etter and Uncle Elmer returned to their Caldwell County roots and settled on Center Street in Lockhart. They loved their home in Lockhart and enjoyed their nephews and their families, many friends, their yard and Uncle Elmer's garden. In advancing years and increasing health problems, Aunt Etter and Uncle Elmer decided to move to the Greens in I.x)ckhart. They made their home at the Greens until Uncle Elmer's death in 1997. Aunt Etter remainedat the Greens until her own declining health necessitated a move to the Golden Age Home where she resided until her death. Aunt Etter and Uncle Elmer never had children but they helped rear their nephews, Mike and Bill Stone, and counted them as sons. They were blessed with a great nephew, John Mark Stone and a great niece, Jeannie Stone, the delight of their later years. John Mark said he remembered as a young child, how Aunt Etter would buy him an Orange Crush and take him to the gravel pit in Buda so he could throw rocks into the gravel pit. Now, as an adult, John Mark said staffing load from a seonity standpoint. Students are in one place and staff is in one place?' The completion phase would include administra- tion, special education, social studies and foreign lan- guage facilities. Also included are new ROTC facili- ties, enhancement of the music building, construction of auxiliary gyms and ancillary locker space, he said. "We expect to remodel the boys locker room area in Bales Gym to be taken over by girls athletics" Stites said. "This will take care of any gender equity issues?' he bought an Orange Crush and took a drink. It didn't taste as good as he remembered. He said, "it was the memory of Aunt Etter and Orange Crush and the gravel pit" that he missed. And that is what we all have now: the memory of Aunt Etter. Aunt Etter requested a graveside service. Graveside services were held on February 4, 2003 at Jeffrey Cemetery in McMahan, Texas. Her long time friend and minister Reverend Lee Griffin along with Lockhart Methodist minister, Reverend Robert Hahn conducted her service. The family would like to thank the staff of the Golden Age Home and Dr. Charles Laurence and staff for the attention and care given to Aunt Etter.

"By bringing the remainder of the master plan into one phase, you are taking advantage of a soft construction market, an advantageous interest rate environment," Stites said.
