ANN DAEUBLE

Ann Margaret Daeuble passed away peacefully surrounded by her family in Laguna Niguel, CA on October 10, 2018.  Ann left us the way she lived life, holding on to the end because she didn't want to miss out on a thing.  She was born, raised and lived most of her adult life El Paso, until moving to Arizona and California five years ago to be closer to her sons and receive specialized medical treatment.  She graduated from El Paso High School and attended the University of San Diego.  She was always so proud to say she was from El Paso and cherished her family, friends and accomplishments there.    

Ann developed many lifelong friendships stretching all the way back to elementary school.  She would go out of her way to make everyone feel welcome.  She loved her sons and adored her four granddaughters.  She would proudly say she had sons, but through them also had two wonderful daughters-in-law and four beautiful granddaughters.  

You would never see Ann without a smile, which was infectious to all of those around her.  She was a loving mother, daughter, sister, grandmother and great friend to many.  She was always up for anything and really cherished being around people.  

She is preceded in death by her beloved "daddy", Louis Daeuble, Jr.; her brother Louis Daeuble, III; and her grandsons, Drew and Dane Kienle.  

Ann is survived by her mother, Margaret Daeuble; her son Andrew Kienle, daughter-in-law, Jenifer and granddaughters, Ava and Mia; her son, Alexander Kienle, daughter-in-law, Kelly, and granddaughters, Olivia and Vivian, and brother Mike Daeuble.

Services have been arranged through Martin Funeral Home.  A mass celebrating Ann's life will be held on October 26, 2018 at 10:30 a.m. at St. Patrick's Cathedral with private interment at Evergreen Cemetery immediately following.

House Fire

On April 1st I was told I had breast cancer. Two operations later May 5, 2015, just waking up from surgery I was contacted by my sister Anita Meek, many may remember her in the class of 62, called me to tell me my house had burned down. Hard to wrap my head around, Anita lives back ln El Paso. Life alert had called her. My husband was to busy with getting our puppy out, truck moved, and firemen. We may not rebuild--just move to Houston, where our son lives. We were very lucky, no lives were lost and we have a great insurance company ( State Farm ) has been great, at this time they have us housed at Candlewoods Suites, till they can find us a place to move to in Houston. Best advice have full coverage and replacement insurance. Take care all. Billy the last time I saw you,,,,,,, you looked great. Please take care of your self. Miss El Paso still after all these years

We have one wonderful son that lives in Houston, Tx. and works for HP. Has given us two special grandsons. Miss El Paso and Tx. Wish we could have come to reunion.

*************************

During our 50th reunion I chatted with a bunch of people and found out that Billy Haddad had Colon Cancer.  I decided to visit with Billy and to find out how he is doing.

Billy wanted me to get the word out to all of us regarding Colon Cancer and what we can do to avoid this disease.  I told him that I would be happy to be the messenger.

Billy has stage IV Colon Cancer with a limited spread to his liver and lungs.  He has undergone surgery, chemo, and radiation therapy.  He has a bunch of needles stuck into his body with various bags that he has to carry around.

Billy is a fighter and I enjoyed my visit with him.

GET A COLONOSCOPY!!!

Billy never did.  And, that is the word he wanted to get out to ALL OF US.

GET A COLONOSCOPY!!!

Yes, you end up making love to your toilet for a day.  But, Billy would tell you that is a small price to pay.  There are no excuses --- Just, get her done.

Love you Billy and God Bless.  John McKelvy
