Biography

Era Mae Green Bareis, age 85, of Kingsville, Texas, passed away at her home on Tuesday, February 21, 2012, after a long and courageous battle with cancer. She was born on November 8, 1926, near Tyler, Texas, to James L. and Levi G. Green. At the age of five she moved to Riviera, Texas, and has lived in Kleberg County for eighty years. For seventy of those years, Era Mae was a farmer and rancher, growing a variety of crops. She loved her home, animals and her truck. She may have been just five feet tall, but she was a ball of fire. Era Mae never met a stranger and was definitely a people person. She was so much fun to be around and we are comforted by great memories of her. Era Mae was an active member of the local AARP and the KEEA, receiving their Club Member of the Year award in 2010. She was preceded in death by her beloved daughter, Nancy McMurrough; her husband, Harold Bareis; and nine of her siblings. Era Mae leaves behind to cherish her memory her sister, Barbara Brown of Aransas Pass, Texas; devoted niece, Dolores Mittag Davis of Kingsville; and numerous nieces, nephews and friends. The family will be receiving friends on Sunday, February 26, 2012, from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. at Turcotte-Piper Mortuary. Funeral service will be Monday, February 27, 2012, at 1:00 p.m. at Turcotte-Piper Mortuary Chapel in Kingsville. Burial will be in Chamberlain Cemetery. Pallbearers will be Lee Cannon, Lewis Cannon, Lindell Cannon, Evan Nemec, Wade Nollkamper and...
