Obituary for Billie Love

March 3, 1932 - January 9, 2018
Austin, Texas | Age 85


Billie Marie Wrye Love, born March 3, 1932, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on January 9, 2018, at the age of 85. She was preceded in death by her parents, Walter Chester Wrye and Mary Edna Trott Wrye; her husband Samuel Winston Love; her brother, Walter Chester Wrye, Jr., step-son Samuel Winston Love, Jr., and nephew, Walter Chester Wrye, III.

Billie is survived by three children: Lucy Leatherwood (Stanton Bell, Jr), John Love (Kathy Love), and Bill Love (Qabriel Bianchini); and step-daughter Elizabeth Love Kester. She is also survived by her grandchildren Brett Leatherwood, Ashley Love, Brooke Love, Alexis Love and Dustin Hill; and great grandson, Cooper Love.

Billie was born in Galveston Texas, a proud BOI, and graduated from Ball High School. She enjoyed her college years and received her degree from the University of Texas in 1955. She was a proud member of Alpha Phi Sorority, was the social chairman and cherished those friendships. She met her husband, Sam, in Houston and married in 1959. They began their married life in Bermuda, and travelled the world on business with Reynolds International. They later returned to their beloved Texas in 1964, where he was an attorney.

Billie and Sam had a full and blessed life in Houston while raising their three children and were active in the Memorial Community. Billie became a Realtor and loved the many friends, clients and colleagues she met over her almost 40 years in the residential real estate business. Those colleagues and neighbors became her cherished friends. She moved to Austin in 2015 and became a very active member of the Brookdale Spicewood Springs Community, whom the family would like to thank for the excellent care and activities over the past few years. She truly loved being "Miss Brookdale".

Her many passions included her family and friends, the University of Texas, traveling, her dog, playing bridge, and gardening.

A celebration of life is scheduled for Saturday, January 27th at 2:00 pm at the Smith Chapel of Riverbend Church, 4214 N. Capital of Texas Hwy in Austin, Texas. A private interment will be at Memorial Oaks Cemetery in Houston, Texas.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions be made to your local Humane Society, or the charity of your choice.
