    • Obituary:

      Bessie Drgac Chaloupka, 85, of Cooks Point, who died Friday evening, October 26, 1990 in a Bryan hospital.

      She was born October 17, 1905 in Snook to the late Joseph D. Drgac and Anna Marie Sebesta. She spent most of her life at Cooks Point where she worked as a bookkeeper and clerk at the Cooks Point Store, a business her family owned for 36 years. She attended school in Cooks Point.

      She was an active member of Cooks Point Brethren Church where she taught Sunday School for over 50 years, played the pump organ and sang in the choir.

      She married Wilton Chaloupka on November 12, 1930. They would have been married sixty years.

      Mrs. Chaloupka was a member of the SPJST Lodge No. 186 in Caldwell, the Cooks Point Mutual Aid Society, where she was secretary and a member of the Burleson-Lee Soil Conservation District and a past member of the Burleson County Historical Society. She and her husband, Wilton, donated the building for the Soil Conservation District in Burleson County.

      Her family said she would be remembered for her love of growing flowers, cattle, her love of all animals, her active service to the community and for her cooking. A family member said she made the best raisin rolls.

      She also helped maintain Slovak Cemetery and the Cooks Point Cemetery.

      Mrs. Chaloupka was preceded in death by her parents; four brothers, Walter Drgac, William Drgac, Joe Drgac and Johnnie Drgac; and six sisters, Annie Hronek, Lydia Kubena, Olga Urbanovsky, Milady Kubena, Albina Meyer and Ella Luksa.

      Survivors include her husband, Wilton Chaloupka of Cooks Point; two brothers, Ed Drgac and wife Fannie of Cooks Point, Frank Drgac and wife Milady of Cooks Point; also four sisters-in-law, Naomi Lerret of San Antonio, Mattie Chaloupka, Tracy and Robert Wine and Annie Lee Mrnustik, all of Caldwell, plus numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives.

      A prayer service was held at 7 p.m. Sunday at Strickland Funeral Home. Funeral services were held at 11 a.m. from Cooks Point Brethren Church with Rev. Norman Haisler and Rev. John Gantt, Jr. officiating. Interment followed at Cooks Point Cemetery.

      Pallbearers were Kenneth Hronek, Leon Kubena, Brad Allbright, Fred Jurecka, Marvin Kubena, Lamar Drgac, Dwight Hattermann, Hubert Drgac and Craig Homeyer.

      May she rest in eternal peace.
