Her husband, Joe Batchelor was the pastor at First Baptist Church in Rockwall many years ago. She was a fine lady.
Bob Myers, July 23, 2020 It was with great pleasure that I was able to help care for Ms. Batchelor. She will be missed but I know she is up above looking at us with that beautiful smile on her face. She was such a light here at CHM, I will always be grateful for the time I had with her. She will always be in my heart as well as her daughter. Love Kayla Kayla Eastmond, October 15, 2018 Sad for your passing. May you rest in peace.
Feances Egan, October 9, 2018 Marilyn, I am sad to hear about your mother. You were a great daughter and that is why she lived such a long time. Prayers for you and the family. Love you, Teresa
Teresa Jacquez, October 8, 2018 The luckiest day of our life was when Skip went next door and borrowed a bucket of water. Skip was in the Navy stationed in Beeville, TX and he was cleaning the house we had rented. We were newlyweds and he needed water to clean the floor. Little did we know that day how important Mr. and Mrs. B would becomes in our lives. We were soon expecting our first child, Katrina. Everyday after teaching school, Mrs. B. would stop in and play with the baby. Don't know who enjoyed it more. Mrs. B became our adopted Mother, and we loved her very much. She has always been a part of our lives from births, graduations, vacations and weddings. My favorite memory was pushing her in a wheelchair thru the Art Institute in Washington, DC. Another memory was from our trip to S.Dakota, we saw a herd of Buffalo out in the distance. Mrs. B leaned out of the window and yelled "Yoo-hoo, Mr. Buffalo". To this day when we go to the zoo and see the Buffalos we all say "Yoo-hoo, Mr. Buffalo". We will remember her when I make chicken spaghetti or Texas sheet cake, the recipes she gave me. We will remember her when we talk about our early married life. We have moved into a different house and the first thing we did was hang one of her paintings, so we will remember her when someone asks "who painted that?". We will remember her for the wonderful person she was, and how she loved us unconditionally. We wish that we could be there tomorrow. We will be there in thoughts and prayers. Mrs. B. RIP until we meet again, Skip said he would bring a bucket! Love, Skip & Sharon
Skip and Sharon Marunde, October 8, 2018 Mrs. B., as my family called her, was very dear to us. Growing up I called her my adopted Grandmother. She was my pen-pal in elementary school and went on several vacations with my family. On one vacation, she yelled, "yoohoo, Mr. Buffalo". The buffalo actually turned and looked at her! To this day, everytime my husband, children and I see a buffalo at the zoo we always yell, "youhoo, Mr. Buffalo". I am so blessed that my two young boys have had the pleasure of meeting her several times when we would travel to Texas from Wisconsin. She was a remarkable woman who has experienced so much in her 100 years! She will be missed greatly.
