She is survived by her children, John Wilbanks and wife, Ruth of Johnstown, Colorado, and James Lindsey and wife, Karen of Abilene; her sisters, Fanny Lou Vann and Betty Hall of Huntsville, Alabama; her brother, Horace Shelton Jr. and wife, Pat of Maryville, Tennessee; six grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.

The family wishes to express thanks to the staff at Plaza Medical Center in Ft. Worth for the outstanding job they did to keep Bessie comfortable during her last days.
