Billie George McKinnerney

Article Image Alt Text

Billie George McKinnerney passed away on Thursday, September 5, 2019 at Shady Shores Nursing Home in San Saba, Texas. Billie George was born May 19, 1925 in Lakeview, Texas, the daughter of William Dudley and Georgia Brown Page.

She had to walk about a mile through fields and pastures to the one room school house known as Lakeview. There was no town, but just a dirt cross roads. The story is that when she came to the fence between the Page farm and the McKinnerney farm, she would stop and bawl. Mrs. McKinnerney would send one of her 10 kids across the field to take Billie the rest of the way to school. After a time, it became the job of John Duevon McKinnerney to fetch her and take her to school. It must have been destiny because on May 12, 1943, she and John D. were married.

After military service, John and Billie George bought a small farm in the Bethel community. In 1962, they bought the Richland Springs Locker Plant and ran that for 20 years.
