Jane Harbes of Pasadena, Texas, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, great-great grandmother, and friend to many, passed away on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 at her home surrounded by her daughters.

Born September 13, 1939 as Clara Jane Ellerbee in Bunkie, Louisiana, she is preceded in death by husbands James Dunn and Edward (Red) Harbes, her parents Harry & Ada Neal Ellerbee, daughter Debbie Faubion, granddaughter Wendy Faubion and grandsons Shane Faubion & Jim Hales; and son in law, ME (Buddy) Hales.

Jane is survived by: daughter Terry Hales of Crosby, Texas; daughters and sons in law Vicki & Damon Stanforth of Moriarty, New Mexico, Susan & Tom Fulmer of Kemah, Texas, and Pam & Ed Toups of Bacliff, Texas; step daughter Sherrie Harbes Benton of Deer Park, Texas; grandchildren Misti Birdsong, TJ Fulmer, Penny Shannon, Brittany Stanforth, Phillip Thornton and Ashley Woods; numerous great grandchildren and her great-great granddaughter and grandson.

In addition to spending valuable time with her girls and their families, Jane enjoyed participating in the East Harris County Precinct 2 Senior Citizen events (Precinct2gether). A multitalented woman, she had the mechanical aptitude to build a motorcycle as well as the talents of a seamstress and most anything in between. Jane also enjoyed her chickens, working in the yard, and was not afraid of getting her hands dirty. The holiday season at her house was a major event! Days and weeks of decorating, gift wrapping, baking and other preparation all led up to her favorite day. No one seemed to enjoy Christmas as much as Jane did.

The family will receive visitors Monday, June 29, 2020, 5:00 PM until 8:00 PM at Grand View Funeral Home & Memorial Park, 8501 Spencer Highway in Pasadena, Texas. Memorial Services and Interment shall be Tuesday, June 30, 2020 at 2:00 PM

Susan, I wish I were with you now. I would hug you until you couldn't take it anymore. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I've enjoyed your post through the years of you with your sisters and mom. May the peace of the Lord be with you all.

My Mamaw brings me back to childhood. Sitting on the ice cream machine with my cousins. You would be so excited and when it was done licking the metal piece. Sitting in the yard with the sun shinning with a big slice of watermelon and a salt shaker. Letting me stay up late on Thursday nights to watch my favorite TV program and then laying in your bed while you read your book waiting for me to go to sleep. Wearing my only pair of pants (white pants) to school and you having to work for days to get them clean again because I was such a tomboy. Hanging out at the motorcycle shop watching Scooby Doo after school. You sitting in your chair with dinner, Sugar in your lap sharing your meal lol. Christmas day looking for my gift with my pink foil wrapping paper and my pink floral arrangement. When I became an adult you would pop in for a visit with a bright smile on your face. Me visiting with my crew of kiddos and we would visit while the little ones played in the rain. Walking in the yard to see your flowers and the critters you feed. Playing SkipBo at the kitchen table. Calling you for advise when I was at my wits end, and your words of encouragement. I will miss you so much. I will love you forever. Until we meet again give my love to everyone in Heaven. All my kisses

I will keep the tradition of the sidewalk chalk drawing alive for us!

There were so many things that made her happy! Like food and of course eating it, family, especially her girls, feeding the birds and any animals that came up, crafting, to simply watching other people have fun and so so much more.

We love you so much Sugar Pie, for so many years you have been the center of our world 🌎.

You will be missed more than anything, now you can rest in heaven and wait on all of us.
Tell Jimbo, Keith and Amie we love them and give them hugs and kisses from us. β€πŸ•ŠπŸ˜˜
