Mary Beth Dautreuil

Mary Beth Dautreuil

Mary Beth Dautreuil burst onto the scene in all her naked glory on November 11, 1965, in New Iberia, LA. Likely, you did not know you were given a gift that day; she’d get to you soon enough. Her formative years were spent just a stone’s throw from where Tabasco sauce is made. She liked to tell you that when you asked her, “Where in the hell is New Iberia?” From the day she took her first breath until the day she took her last, Mary Beth found merriment and mischief often. She loved a good caper, the kind you thanked your lucky stars you agreed to when she asked you to join. You remembered and laughed about it with her for years. She spent her impressionable teen years in the loving yet strict presence of the nuns at Mt. Carmel Academy. She was the belle of the class and beloved by classmates. Particularly, her way to get out of all sorts of good trouble. She was rarely on time to class and when she was, it was cause for celebration. Mary Beth attended the University of Southwestern Louisiana (Boldly, Happily, Faithfully) and followed her heart to Texas where she attended Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos. She firmly planted her heart in her adopted home state when she moved to Houston in 1986. After trading in her college days for grownup life in Houston, Mary Beth pursued three things: friends, fun, and financial security, in that order. Mary

Florence Jean Kosela

Florence Jean “Flo” Kosela

Florence Jean “Flo” Kosela passed away peacefully in Austin, Texas on Thursday, December 17, 2020 at the age of 80. Flo was born on February 7, 1940, to Joseph and Stephanie (Jemielita) Popko in Brooklyn, New York. She married Jan Piotr “John” Kosela on February 19, 1972. They raised two daughters, Jean and Irene. Flo sold Avon and taught the toddler class at a church preschool in Katy, Texas for over thirty years. She was well known for having an exceptional way with children, and the little ones adored Flo as much as she did them. Flo loved to laugh! She had a wonderful sense of humor and was a staunch proponent of looking on the brighter side of things. She was a good listener who enjoyed meeting new people and chatting. Flo could strike up a lengthy conversation with a total stranger or talk for hours with friends. She had endless entertaining stories about the “old days” in Brooklyn. Flo was a devoted mother (and mother-in-law) who was always there for her children and her son-in-law. She had a gift for baking and cooking—everything from cheesecake and Christmas cookies to lasagna and Polish pierogi. Flo really loved music (Elvis was a special favorite), singing and dancing, searching for “treasures” at garage sales and thrift stores, and having a good time at the casinos whenever she got the chance. She was never without her favorite lipstick. Most of all, “Boppy” cherished spending time with her family, especially her grandbabies. Flo
