April 29 1933 July 24 2019
Georgetta’s Obituary Georgetta Stolebarger Chambers left this earth sweetly in her sleep early on July 24, 2019. A Celebration of Life will take place on Saturday, August 17, at 2pm at First Baptist Church in Taylor. Georgetta was born in Wichita, KS, on April 29, 1933, to Mildred and George Stolebarger, and was oldest of six children. The family eventually relocated to Carrollton, TX and on September 8, 1951, she married her high school sweetheart, Joe R. Chambers, who was by her side for 68 years. She supported Joe through a lifetime of professional and ministerial work and they retired together from Ponderosa Baptist Conference Center in Colorado where he was director and she was camp secretary. They spent the next 10 years touring the U.S., Nova Scotia, Great Britain, Scotland, the Mediterranean, and Europe before relocating back to Taylor to be close to family. Joe and Georgetta both had a love for travel which took them just about everywhere they wanted to go (mostly in an RV), but she had a passion for her family which always kept her coming back to Texas, Oklahoma, and Colorado. One of her favorite sayings, “Taylor is on the way to anywhere.” Georgetta will be cherished and remembered as “Nanny,” a godly woman who was always so loving and encouraging that the imperfections of others never seemed to register with her. Quiet and content wherever she was, she had a gift for putting others at ease while making everyone feel unique and special. She loved to quilt and make greeting cards, but her lifelong passion was “people.” Georgetta is survived by her husband, Joe, daughters, JoLynne Williams and Marilyne Rowland and their husbands, Charles and James of Taylor; a son, Steven Chambers and his wife Stacy of Nowata, OK; a son-in-love, Mark Chambers and his wife Beverly of Colorado Springs; sisters, Luella Stolebarger of Dallas and Loralee Aulds of Tennessee; brother, John Stolebarger of Florida; 8 grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, and extended family. Joe and Georgetta were faithful members of First Baptist Church of Taylor and memorials may be made to the church at 2500 Mallard Street, Taylor, Texas, 76574, or to Shepherd’s Heart Food Pantry at 121 East 2nd Street, Taylor, Texas 76574.
