Rheba Beatrice Burge, 83, departed this earth to be with her Savior, Jesus Christ, Friday, January 7, 2022. She was born in Iola, TX, on June 17, 1938, to Peter Breece Yeager and Myra Ann Yeager (Beckham). Rheba was blessed with two children, Laura Ann (Helbert) Carlisle and Sharron Diane (Shaw) Jedlicka. She was a loving wife, sister, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend.
Rheba was very independent and often took on the role as caregiver for friends and family. She enjoyed going to church and Bible study. In addition, she was skilled in cooking, professionally as well as for family and friends. Rheba spent her final 15 years in Roman Forest, TX with her daughter, Laura, making many local friends, often times volunteering her culinary expertise when needed. She was a faithful member of Forestwood Baptist Church in Roman Forest and former member of Unity Baptist Church in Porter.
Survivors include sister, Dorothy Conner of Elgin, TX; daughter, Laura Carlisle & husband, Stephen of Roman Forest, TX; daughter, Sharron Jedlicka of Columbus, IN; granddaughters, Tabatha, Stephanie, and Victoria; grandsons, Lorenzo and Cody; and many great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Charlie “Chuck” Burge; brothers Elbert Yeager and James Yeager; and sisters Ruebena Byars, Edith Denman, Lorena Reinhart, and Alice Isbell.
A private celebration of life will be held at a future date in Louisiana to re-unite Rheba and Chuck for their final resting place.
