Death:  Mar. 26, 1977
Houston
Harris County
Texas, USA

My paternal grandmother. Family and friends knew her as Bessie. Hard working Moravian, Catholic, wife of Charlie F. “Karel Fredrick” Frederick. Obtained marriage license in Georgetown, Williamson County, Texas, and Bessie and Charlie married on 12 October 1914, in Granger, Williamson County, Texas. She graduated from Granger High School in 1913. She worked in the cafeteria for Crosby I.S.D. in the 1950’s. 
She was a faithful member of the SS. Cyril & Methodius Catholic Church, in Granger, Williamson County, TX; and the Sacred Heart Catholic Church, in Crosby, Harris, Texas.

My Grandmother honored her Moravian heritage. Her parents emigrated from Moravia in August 1892 to Galveston, Galveston County, Texas.

Bessie & Charlie were hard working Moravian farmers. They moved to Sheldon, Harris County, Texas before 1926, when my Daddy, LeRoy E. Frederick, was born in Crosby, Harris County, Texas. Daddy taught me how to polka.

Emma, Bessie, and Joe Mazac, boyfriend of Bessie (on left) Anton Janacek, Granger, Williamson County, Texas, c. 1918.

My poor grandma had a very hard life. Grandma loved her children and grandchildren. She raised her five living children by herself after grandpa Charlie passed away in 1947. She lost a child, Jerome Frederick, in 1919 in Granger, Williamson County, Texas. She raised Woodie and Charles all their lives. She told me that they were in a car accident, and were never the same again. Charles would not talk at all for years, then when he did start talking grandma wanted him to shut up.

She tended almost an acre of land with her garden, and the boys always worked right alongside her. She had a green thumb. She had all kinds of good vegetables and strawberries too! She canned and put up jelly.

Bessie loved music and dancing. Grandma Frederick always had the best kolaches and soda pop for her Grandkids, when they visited. She was a great cook! I loved to climb her trees and pick strawberries out of her garden, that she and the boys (Charles & Woodrow) Frederick helped her tend. Daughter of Jan “John” & Annie Marie “Mary” (Dudika) Mazac of Granger, Texas.

Resided in Taylor, Williamson County, Texas in 1920, according to the U.S. Census for Williamson County, Texas.

Children: Agnes “Renie” Rainnie (Christ), LeRoy “Lee” Eugene, Juanita “Punkin” Elizabeth (Christ), Woodrow “Woodie”, and Charles “Chas” Frederick.

She raised the children by herself after 1947, when Grandpa Charlie died of Stomach Cancer.

Grandma Bessie worked for the Crosby ISD in the cafeteria for years. Everyone loved her. Died of hardening of the arteries and Diabetes.

Grandma Bessie liked pink. She told my mother and me that she liked artificial flowers–because they didn’t die. And, she made my mother promise her, that when she died, mother would make sure that all her grandchildren came to her funeral. Of course, we all did. Having flowers at her families gravesides was important to her.

I volunteered to sponsor the online Sacred Heart Catholic Cemetery to honor her. Grandma Bessie & Grandpa Charlie and Uncle Woodie, Uncle Charles, and Aunt Rainnie are all laid to rest there.

Grandma Bessie even as poor as she was, always made sure that all nine (9) of her Grandchildren got something for Christmas.
