Darla Elayne Cavender Bollinger, 58, passed away peacefully at her home
in Katy, TX, in her sleep Monday, October 23, 2006 after a lifelong battle
with chronic pain and illness. She was born on February 6, 1948.
    Darla was a loving mother and grandmother, who loved the Lord and will
be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. She was a woman of many
talents with a very giving heart. She would have given anything for her
family. Throughout her life, she wore many ³hats²: mother, daughter,
beautician, florist, interior decorator, cake decorator, china painter, and
school bus driver to name a few. But her most treasured job was being a
³Gran² as her grandchildren so lovingly called her. She touched each of
their lives in a very special way. She fought her pain daily to do
everything she could do to spend as much time with them as she could. They
were the reason for living.
    She is preceded in death by her father, Lawrence ³Eddie² Cavender of
Katy, TX. She is survived by her mother, Martha ³Inez² Cavender; 2 sisters,
Edlynn McCarty and Debbie HArris; 4 children, Clint Bollinger and wife,
Kimberly, Tanya Wilson and husband, Ron, Heather Pedregon and husband, Aaron
and Kymbra Owen and husband, Oscar, III and wife, Scarlett, Kimberly, David,
and Savannah Owen. We all love and miss you, Mom/Gran.
