Jeanette Sturdivant (Woelfel), age 69, of Hutto passed away Thursday July 28, 2016.
Jeanette was born November 30, 1946 in Thorndale, Texas to Ruth (Iselt) and Alfred Woelfel. She and her three brothers grew up in Thorndale and lived on a small farm outside of town. Jeanette raised four sons that she had from a previous marriage. In 1981 she married Darrell Sturdivant. The family moved to Hutto where they were involved with many of their sons' school activities, Band Boosters, Athletic Boosters and FFA Boosters. Many of the boys' friends just called them "Ma & Pa". Jeanette would often go downstairs on a weekend morning to find the floor lined with boys that decided to camp out after a football game, and then she would head back upstairs to start making breakfast for the gang. Jeanette loved her family and would plan big gatherings just so everyone could visit. During recent years she became an Avon representative and looked forward to visiting with her clients on a regular basis. She would probably say her greatest joy came from being called "Granny". The grandchildren would enjoy group sleepovers at Granny's; playing games she would keep at her house especially for them and "helping" her with all of her animals. She never forgot a birthday even with so many to remember. Jeanette always enjoyed, attending or hearing, about all of her grandchildren's events and adventures from sport games, stock shows, dance recitals, band performances, flying model planes, scouting trips, fishing escapades, boat outings and travel journeys.
She was preceded in death by her parents, brother, Milton Woelfel and sister-in-law, Twila Ward.
She is survived by her husband, Darrell Sturdivant; her children, Evan McDaniel and wife Micki, Byron McDaniel and wife Joanne, Aaron McDaniel and wife Edith, and Kendal McDaniel and wife Nikki; her step children, Cindy Lyle and husband Mark, Charla Weaver and husband Vance, Royce Sturdivant and wife Christine, and Johnny Sturdivant; her grandchildren, Emily and Forrest LeBlanc, Kayla and Charlie Robichaux, Devan McDaniel, Kristen McDaniel, Jennifer McDaniel, Christopher McDaniel, Nicholas McDaniel, Dustin McDaniel, and Alfred McDaniel; her step grandchildren, Ashley Sturdivant, Ashton Sturdivant, Samantha Spicer, Leslie Carter Stephen Weaver, Alexandria Weaver, Megan Lyle, Blake Lyle, Caleb Lyle, and Shelby Lyle; 13 step great-grandchildren; brother, Leroy Woelfel and wife Norma; and brother, Larry Woelfel and wife Mary; sister-in-law Berta Jean Woelfel; brother-in-law Newton (NE) Ward; and her mother-in-law, Juanita Sturdivant.
