On the morning of July 6, 2021, Barbara Ott of Pipe Creek, loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and follower of Christ, passed away peacefully at the age of 79 after a courageous battle with lung disease.

Barbara was born on August 12, 1941, to Ervin and Clyde Toerck in Goliad, Texas.

After graduating from Goliad High School, she enjoyed working 40 years for Southwestern Bell. When she retired in 1998, she fulfilled her lifelong dream of traveling the country with her husband in their motor-home.

Barbara loved to travel and explore every part of this world, always accompanied by people she adored and making new friends along the way. She enjoyed the outdoors. She loved listening to the birds sing and she was fascinated by the arrangement of every petal on the different flowers. She loved walking the beaches, listening to the waves come in and watching the sun set. She thanked the Lord for every day she was given.

She will join the Lord in Heaven with her parents, her brother, Arliss James Toerck, and her sister, Sandra Toerck Hardegree.

She is survived by her husband of 57 years, Eugene (Gene) Herman Ott; her children, Jeffrey Wayne Ott (Christine), Tammy Sue Morrow (Clay), Keith Allen Ott; her grandchildren, Daniel John, Davis Jon, Donley Joseph, Deja Jabot, and Dunn Jett Morrow, Catherine Elizabeth and Carolyn Virginia Ott, Jade Rene and Tessa Kaye Ott; and her great-grandchildren, Lily Catherine and Grayson Clay Morrow.

Although she is no longer walking with us in her physical form, Barbara will live in all our hearts and cherished memories until one day we too will see her smiling face again.

A memorial mass was said for Barbara on July 12 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Stanislaus Catholic Church in Bandera, Texas, with inurnment at the Holy Cross Cemetery in Goliad, Texas at a later date.
