She was born December 12, 1916 to Otto and Frances Pecena Quitta in Weimar, Colorado County. After moving several times, she grew up in Wheelock. She was married to Edmund George Sebesta on November 20, 1937 and lived in Snook for over 40 years until she moved to Bryan in 1978. To this union were born three children – Shirley Ann Proske-Smith, Edmund George Sebesta Jr., and Margie Ruth Bailey.
She was preceded in death by her parents, by her husband of 36 years of marriage; by two brothers; one sister who died in infancy; by one sister, Lillie See; and two brothers, Alfon and Albin Quitta.
She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Shirley and Jerry Smith of Bryan; son and daughter-in-law, Edmund and Lenora Sebesta of Snook; daughter Margie Bailey of Plano; 7 grandchildren, Alton and Rose Burkhalter of Magnolia, Michael and Laura Burkhalter of Snook, Angie and Brad Hairrell of Snook, Jason and Lisa Sebesta of Snook, Nathan Sebesta of Snook, Gina and Johnny Skinner of Murphy, and Lee and Pia Bailey of Plano; 10 great-grandchildren – Tiffany and Lauren Burkhalter, Ashley and Kristin Dinger, Cullen and Deanna Hairrell, Dakota, Bailey and Austin Skinner, and Tyler Sebesta; sister-in-law Annette Sebesta and by numerous nieces and nephews and other relatives and friends, all of whom will miss her presence in our midst.
She loved gardening and growing things; she always had a big garden until a few years ago when she could no longer tend to it. She loved talking to her friends on the telephone, especially some of her Czech friends. Among her many talents was her expertise in baking kolaches which she would always bake for her children and grandchildren; it brought her great joy that her family loved her kolaches.
She was a member of the Snook Brethren Church and was a charter member of Hope Evangelical Free Church in College Station.
Pallbearers are Lee Bailey, Alton Burkhalter, Michael Burkhalter, Brad Hairrell, Jason Sebesta, Nathan Sebesta, and Johnny Skinner.
