48 Obituary from San Antonio Express, 4 June 2022:

Elizabeth "Libba" McClelland Barnes, known affectionately by some as "Honey" or "Uncle Libba," passed away on June 1, 2022, almost 84 years from her birthdate of June 10, 1938. Legendary for her laughter, beautiful smile and biting wit, Libba charged charismatically through this world, flamboyantly relishing a life of politics, parties, golf and ranching, with family and friends from all walks of life.
Libba grew up in San Antonio and on her family ranch, Cuatro Paisanas, in George West, Texas, savoring her South Texas ranching culture and traditions. She graduated from St. Mary's Hall High School and Trinity University. In her 20s she was both a Duchess and Princess for the Order of the Alamo Fiesta Coronation, and later was Mistress of the Robes for the Court of the Sun King. In 1963 she met and married the handsome John Burton Barnes.

From early adulthood, Libba was passionate for politics and worked tirelessly for causes and people she backed. The Federation of Republican Women honored Libba at their "Tribute to Women" for good reason: She founded the Bexar County Young Women's Republican Club and served as its first President. Libba chaired the Bexar County Campaigns for Presidents Nixon and Ford, and many events for local and national politicians. She relished her role as Republican State Committeewoman for eight years, planning everything from finance committees to Jack Kemp's birthday dinner.
Libba was no slacker in civic duties either; her interests spread as widely as the range of friends she made as she went. Libba was appointed by President Reagan to be Commissioner of the National Park Service, San Antonio Missions, and in 1974 was named one of the Outstanding Women in American. She was Director Emeritus for the San Antonio Livestock Exposition, President of the San Antonio Art League, and an active Board member of the San Antonio Conservation Society, the Junior League, Fiesta San Antonio Commission, San Antonio Museum Association, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Bexar County Child Welfare, St. Mary's University, Los Campadres, and the Bexar County Civil Service Commission. Libba also enjoyed memberships at the San Antonio Country Club, the Argyle Club, the Petroleum Club, the Supper Club, and Los Festivos.

Libba's energy extended to a competitive love of sports. A lifelong golfer, Libba played countless rounds at the San Antonio Country Club, and spent summers playing at the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. One of her greatest life joys was as a part owner in the New Orleans Saints football team, cheering them on to their Super Bowl victory in 2009 and then proudly wearing her Super Bowl ring every day. The "Who Dat?" parties thrown in her Owner's box made Bourbon Street revelers look like amateurs.

The original extrovert, Libba loved a party; her house always teemed with a steady crowd of interesting and diverse people from her varied endeavors. When she wasn't entertaining or hitting golf balls, she could be found travelling with her grandchildren or playing cards with friends on the beach in La Jolla.

She was truly interested in knowing people, their backgrounds and opinions--though heaven help the soul whose politics didn't align, or who double-crossed a friend; for these, there was a special place in her infamous A**hole jar. But there was a deeper place in her heart, fiercely loyal and loving, for family and friends, whether famous, humble, shiny or damaged. Libba welcomed so many people into her life and home, with genuine interest, acceptance, generosity, and love.

Libba was preceded in death by her cherished son, John Burton Barnes, Jr., her infant daughter Bonita, her former husband John Burton Barnes; her parents Josephine "Dodie" West McClelland and Colonel C.K. "Mac" McClelland; her sisters Josephine "Jo" West McClelland McNamee and Mary Vance "Vancie" McClelland Bohls, and brother-in-law Al McNamee. She is survived by her two beloved grandchildren, Bracken West Barnes and John Burton Barnes, her sister Toby McClelland Tate and brothers-in- law John Tate and Carl Bohls. Special love and gratitude to Janie Ramirez for her devotion, friendship and famous cookies to Libba for 42 years.

49 Obituary:

Courageous and beautiful in death as in life, Pauline Washington Gillespie, gracefully welcomed peace at 8:20 p.m. Monday, August 8, 2005. She entered a peace that lovingly embraces all life: the huge, the small, the endangered and the wildly prolific. She lived a life of grace, self-sacrifice, kindness and devotion to her family and friends. Pauline Tillotson Washington was born March 14, 1919 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, of Queena Pauline Gammon Washington, Corning, New York and Joseph Edwin Washington, “Wessington”, Cedar Hill, Tennessee. Her ancestry included: artists, senators, heroes of the Alamo and the half brother of the first president of United States. Pauline met her future husband, Frank Morgan Gillespie, Jr., an avid horseman, while riding in the Battle of Flowers Parade with the Saint Mary’s Hall Drill Team. He immediately fell in love with the stylish and athletic young woman. He often repeated,” After she caught my attention, she never graced another horse.” They began their marriage in the early days of World War II while Frank was assigned as the U.S. Naval Liaison with the Cuban Navy in Havana and had “Paula”, their first of 3 daughters. Their marriage included Ford cars, rattlesnakes, moderately dry wells, world travel, and too many dogs, cats and ponies to number. Pauline’s life centered on her husband, her three daughters, four grandchildren, two great grandchildren and an endless menagerie of animals. She was a member of many civic and social clubs; the most cherished being “The Friday Fries”-- comprised of life-long Saint Mary’s Hall friends and a few foreigners--and her Monday Argyle Luncheon Group. In 1989, after 49 years of marriage, her beloved husband Frank preceded her in death. We rejoice that they are once again together. Also preceding her in death was her youngest sister, Elizabeth Hotchkiss Washington McNeel of San Antonio. She is survived by her sister, Mary Bolling Washington Holley, Lake Placid, New York: her daughter and son-in-law: Pauline Gillespie Gossett and Robert Francis Gossett, Jr and their two sons: Robert Francis Gossett III and Frank Morgan Gillespie Gossett; her daughter and son-in-law: Zelime Gillespie Matthews and John Kenney Matthews and their daughter in law and son: Catherine King Matthews and Wilbur Lee Matthews II and their two children: Mary Lamar McLeod Matthews and Vance Washington Matthews; and their daughter Zelime Vance Gillespie Matthews. Pauline is also survived by her youngest daughter and son-in-law: Elizabeth Tobin Gillespie and Carlton Gustav Schenken, Jr and his three children: Carlton Gustav ”Trey” Schenken, John Spencer Schenken, and Linde Allen Schenken. The family would like to thank Pauline’s loving and faithful friends: Inez Roberta Hooks, Denise Zamora, Lourdes Gonzalez, Mary Bert, George Dears, Willie Jackson, Marilyn Izzell and Toni Robinson. Special love and thanks to Doctor Christopher Kopecky and Brenda Jaye, RN.Pallbearers: Robert Francis Gossett III, Frank Morgan Gillespie Gossett, Wilbur Lee Matthews II, Zelime Vance Gillespie Matthews, William Allison Bunton, Joseph Washington Bunton, Jennifer Craighead Bunton, and Ellen Claire Gillespie Inglish. Honorary Pallbearers: Rowena Osborn, Judy Groos, Ruth Campbell, Margaret Saunders Block, Mary Elizabeth York, Carolyn Negley and Emily Ann Browning.
