1952-2013

Joyce Ann Sekula Crowell, 61, of Luling, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend, died Friday, Sept. 13, 2013, after a valiant battle with cancer. Joyce was born on Jan. 29, 1952, in Nixon, Texas, to Fred and Annie Felux Sekula, a beautiful little girl in a family of three brothers.

She was beautiful inside and out the moment she entered this world. She was a 1970 graduate of Gonzales High School, where she met a Luling boy named Jay Crowell. She attended the University of Texas at Austin and married Jay in 1972. Their love was the kind you could see, especially on the dance floor. They had two daughters, Dana and Kristen, whom she loved like no other. She made a home that everyone wanted to come to. Joyce loved being a professional. She took pride in her work. She often talked about her time working for Kleinguenther in Seguin. When the family moved to Luling, she took a job at Luling Independent School District. She loved her job and made many memories and close friends that were close to her heart. Her passion was her grandchildren. She lived for them and showed her love to them every moment that she could. Joyce was known for her beauty, grace, heart, and her will to live. She loved time spent with her family, laughing.

She was preceded in death by her parents; and her brothers, Leo David, William “Bill” Joseph, and Patrick James Sekula.

Joyce is survived by her loving husband of 41 years, Jay Crowell; daughters Dana McNabb and husband Matt and Kristen Crowell; grandchildren Kendall Cox, and Carson and Kash McNabb; brother Kenneth Sekula and wife Ibbie; numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins; and many other loving family and friends.

Visitation was held on Monday, Sept. 16, at 5 p.m. with a vigil service at 7 p.m. in the Tres Hewell Mortuary Chapel in Seguin.

A Mass of Christian Burial was held on Tuesday at 10 a.m. in St. John’s Catholic Church in Luling, with the Rev. Howard Goertz officiating.

Interment followed in the McNeil Cemetery in Luling.

Serving as pallbearers were Bubba Broussard, Eddie Nunez, Delton Hendricks, Clifford Igal, Nolan Alexander, and Ronnie Via.

Serving as honorary pallbearers were Ibbie Sekula, Janet Burt, Kathy Langford, Judy Magallanez, and Cora Pawelek.
