Charles Earl Hensley
Jan 28, 2023   02:00 PM

Charles Earl Hensley was born December 31, 1940, in Guthrie, Cottle County, Texas. His parents, Earl Pete Hensley and Pauline Watson Hensley owned a business there and so that was home.

Charles had one brother, Larry Hensley. Charles grew up like most young people in small towns. He played all sports, studied, fished, and hunted. Then he met the love of his life, Daisy Jean Smith, married in 1959, and family life started.

In 1960, Charles joined the Army where he was the Company Clerk. That wasn’t exciting, so he was honorably discharged in 1962. In the meantime, Charles found another love in his life, Paula Jean Hensley, a daughter, born in April 1961. After getting out of the Army, Charles found his true calling for the rest of his career – law enforcement. He became a policeman in Littlefield, Texas in 1962. He made his final career change in January, 1966, when he joined the 85th session of the U.S. Border Patrol Academy. After years and moves, he proved to be a leader and was honest, dependable, punctual, and always willing to offer assistance. He moved up the ladder and retired as the Deputy Chief of the Marfa Sector in 1993.

Charles made a lot of friends in law enforcement, many who are friends today. He was often seen at the local sheriff’s office having coffee and conversation. He enjoyed competition shooting, being very skilled, and winning many honors over the years. Other interests included woodworking, reloading, hunting, fishing, and good whiskey. He believed that you should hear the gun go off every day. He was also an avid football fan. He was quite the man!

Preceding him in death were his mother and father, wife, and brother.

Surviving him is his daughter Paula Hensley, Leah “Squirt Blossom” and a lot of friends!

A memorial service will be held for Charles on Saturday, January 28, 2023, at 2 pm, in the chapel at Lange Funeral Home. Guests may register online at www.ballingerfuneralhome.com

Lucille Frances (Willberg) Schwertner
Jan 28, 2023   10:00 AM

Our strong-willed, beautiful mother passed peacefully into the loving arms of our Lord and Savior on Tuesday, January 24, 2023. Lucille Frances (Willberg) Schwertner was born December 2, 1925, in Miles, Texas to Arthur and Matilda (Mueller) Willberg. She was raised on a farm near Miles and graduated in 1942 from Miles High School. She met the love of her life, Leo Paul Schwertner and married January 3, 1945. They shared 28 wonderful years together. She worked alongside L.P. in the field teaching their children hard work ethics. Upon Leo’s death in 1973, she continued to grow the farm and raise her children, guiding them to their successes today.

Lucille loved to fish, especially the annual summer trips to Port Aransas where she especially enjoyed catching gaff top in the channel and deep-sea fishing for king fish. She was an avid gardener and had the greenest thumb growing anything from a sprig broken off a plant to a towering acorn tree from a seed, always bringing something home from a trip in her luggage to see if she could get it to grow. She did retouch work at Wallace Studios, volunteered at Shannon Hospital, worked as a florist, and traveled extensively in Europe and the United States making many lifelong friends along the way. Her last trip was to Alabama to visit the Shrine of the Blessed Sacrament and Our Lady of Angels Monastery as well as attend mass at EWTN. She enjoyed watching daily mass on TV.

She seldom missed a domino party or polka dance. She had multiple accordions, never having any music lessons, she would play by ear. She enjoyed playing dominoes at the Senior Citizens in Miles, Rowena, and Wall. In her later years when she could no longer make the dances, she enjoyed watching Big Joe and Molly B seeing who she might recognize on the dance floor.

She and L.P. were among the founders of St. Thomas Catholic church in Miles where she was a lifelong member and taught Catechism (Religious Ed). She was a member of the St. Theresa Altar Society and Runnels County Extension Homemakers. She was strong in her faith and instilled that in her family.

She is preceded in death by her parents and husband; sister Ruby (Willberg) Book, son-in-law Marvin Asbill, and great-grandson Cole Harrell.

Lucille is survived by her loving children, Carol Asbill of San Angelo, Harvey (Linda) Schwertner of Miles, Ronald (Patty) Schwertner of Denton, Theresa (Donald) Weishuhn of Eola, Steven (Linda) Schwertner of Miles; grandchildren, Jean(Tracy) Moody, Scott(Jennifer) Asbill, Melissa (Randal) Jacoby, Paul (Kim) Schwertner, Kelly (Todd) Harrell, Jodie (Todd) Helms, Lea (Tuan) Do, Grant Schwertner, Lori (Patrick) Gildart, Ryan (Rachael) Schwertner, Erin Schwertner, Adam Schwertner, Carrie (Max) Batla, Cody (Misty) Weishuhn, Cassie Weishuhn, Amy (Marcus) Halfmann, Sara (Josh) Flohr, Eric (Alisha) Schwertner; 45 of great-grandchildren, 5 great-great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.

Special thanks to caregivers Jessica Bryand, Dena Stewart, Norma Martinez, and Gentiva Hospice nurse Sarai.
