Obituary

Willaveene Kaye Hyatt Daigle, born July 7, 1923 in Los Angeles, California, joined her husband Roland John Daigle in death on December 16, 2016.

She spent most of her young life in southern New Mexico on the family ranch in Deming. After she completed her nursing degree in El Paso, Texas she met Roland at a dance at the local army post on Fort Bliss. During his army career they traveled the world and lived in Japan and Germany. Roland retired and they made their home in San Marcos. Willaveene worked as a nurse in the OB ward at Breckenridge Hospital in Austin before serving as the school nurse at Travis Elementary School until her retirement.

Her passions included travel, camping, golfing and dancing. She enjoyed competitive sports and as a football player's wife, mother and an avid fan, she never missed a game. Her love for sports was only eclipsed by her love for Boston terriers.

Willaveene was a member of the First Baptist Church of San Marcos and a life member of the Order of the Eastern Star. She will be missed, especially for her quick wit and the "adventure" she made out of life.

Willaveene was preceded in death by twin boys, Walter Donation and Martin Lewis, who died as infants in 1954. She is survived by three of her children, Wayne and wife Lisa of New Braunfels, TX, Robert and wife Arvelle of San Antonio, TX, Elaine and husband Calvin Thomas of Driftwood, TX, seven grandchildren and twelve great-grand children.

The funeral service will be at 2:00 p.m. on December 21, 2016 at Thomason Funeral Home in Wimberley, TX. Visitation begins at 12:00 p.m. Later in January, interment will be on January 7, 2017 at 12:00 p.m. at San Marcos City Cemetery in San Marcos, TX.
