Catherine Marie (DeeDee) Marrs
DeeDee Marrs, 60, a longtime resident of League City, Texas, passed away in her home on November 3rd, 2018, after a courageous battle with cancer.
DeeDee was a very outgoing and vivacious lady who was admired and respected by many. Anyone who had the honor to know her was graced by her wicked sense of humor, which allowed her the ability to lighten up any situation and leave everyone laughing. She was an avid reader who loved to stay home and relax, but she was always ready to take off on an adventure or visit with friends. Her innate sense of style carried over into home decor and wardrobe. She often helped friends turn their house into an aesthetically pleasing, warm, and cozy home, which leads to another of her favorite things…shopping; it was all about the bargain and the bling!
She was born on May 2nd, 1958, in Fairfield, California; and as an Air Force brat, she traveled all over the world as the family grew. She graduated from Clear Lake High School in 1976 and went on to have a long and successful career at NASA, where she was privileged to work in Mission Control as part of the support team for flight and station. In 2008, she moved on to work for S & B Engineers and Constructors, and then Jacobs Engineering as a document controller. She made many lifelong friends along the way and was a bright light for everyone that was fortunate enough to work with her. She was the vanguard in organizing office celebrations and to make certain there was always plenty of laughter and good food in abundance; most notably, her chocolate sheet cake, banana pudding, and famous cheese ball…to name a few.
She is preceded in death by her beloved parents, Stanley Louis Marrs and Jean Marie Marrs. She was a devoted mother to her only child and surviving son, Matthew Korte Marrs. She is also survived by her two grandchildren, Mason and Matthew Gonzales, whom she adored. In addition, she was a wonderful sister to her surviving siblings and their families: Tim Marrs and his wife Michelle, Elizabeth Garney, Greg Marrs and his wife Sharon, Jerry Marrs and his wife Michelle, Jenny Easley and her husband Kenny, Susan Zinser and her husband Rich, and Theresa Neil and her husband Mark, as well as many loving nieces and nephews. Her strong devotion and belief in family designated her as the hallmark that encouraged the continuity of their love and togetherness. She also leaves behind her appropriately named dog, Rascal, that stayed by her side to the end.
She will be greatly missed by those she loved and those who loved her. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation to your favorite charity or eat a bundtini in her honor; her favorite flavor was chocolate chocolate chip.
