Betty Jo Work

Betty Work

Betty Jo Micek Work went to be with her Maker, Saturday, November 13th , 2021. Betty  was born in Yoakum, TX February 15th, 1930 to Charles Micek and Emma Ermis Micek. After graduation from high school she enrolled in secretarial school and by the age of 18 made her way to Houston where she went to work for the Texas and New Orleans Railroad Company. While employed at the railroad she met her future husband Robert Edwin Work.

Family was her treasure on earth and spending time with her sons David Wayne Work (Gail), Michael Edwin Work (Rhonda), John Alan Work (Kari) and Robert Daniel Work (Robin) and their families was her joy. Her grandchildren, Tara Beasley (Jason), Amy Kobialka (Jon), Daniel Work, Melissa Black (John), Michael Work (Meghann), Chrissy Work (Ronnie), John Michael Work (Angelina), Chris Work, Emily Work, and Danielle Work have wonderful memories of Grandma. She was just as comfortable holding them in her lap as she was down on the floor playing games. Thanksgiving and Christmas at Grandma’s, where never a harsh word was spoken, will be missed by the entire family. Her final wishes were assurances that those gatherings will continue. Great-grandchildren Connor, Maggie, Clara, Aaron, Matthew, Madi, McKenna, Arilyn, and Nolan all brought smiles to Grandma’s face. She looked forward to any family gathering where they were present.

Betty is preceded in death by her husband Robert, and son David.

 A Visitation (10-11:00am) and Memorial Service (11:00am-noon) is scheduled for Wednesday November, 24th at Redeemer Church, 1135 Jocelyn Street. Houston, TX. Grandma will be laid to rest in a family service later that day.
