(July 22, 1961 - January 6, 2016) 

Clinton Joe Smith, 54, of Ballinger passed away Wednesday, January 6, 2016.

He was born July 22, 1961 in Andrews, TX to Joe T. Smith and Wanda Wells Smith. Clinton graduated from Coahoma High School, and after a lifelong career in oil and natural gas, he received his Masters in the Oilfield. He worked for Union Petroleum, Western Gas Resources, Mitchell Energy, Devon Energy and most recently, Anadarko. In his younger years, he farmed during the day and worked in the oilfield at night to provide for his girls.

He loved being with his grandbabies and was especially delighted when they were ornery and mischievous. He enjoyed family trips, including yearly reunions to the Frio River, hunting and fishing with family and co-workers who were like family, driving on long back roads with country music playing in the background, teaching his girls about life and how to live it. Clinton loved his job and everyone he worked with, learning and teaching about the oilfield, and worked until the day he died.

Clint is described as being selfless, loving, giving, kind hearted, honest, level headed, smart, loyal, hard working, dedicated, a straight shooter, dependable, friendly, loveable and ornery. He would give you the shirt off his back (if you earned it).

He is survived by his daughters Cari Cuellar and husband Gabe of Ballinger, Caci Demmer and husband Kyle of Midland, loving father Joe T. and wife Lynda Smith of Oklahoma, loving mother Wanda Wells Smith and Wayne Henshaw of Oklahoma. He had three grandbabies who were the loves and light of his life, Koda and Kash Cuellar, Addison Demmer, and one on the way who he couldn’t wait to meet, Baby Demmer. Also surviving is his sister Kim Smith Baker of Oklahoma, with whom he held a special and close relationship with and her children, Magan and Garret Aldridge and Emily Dee. He leaves behind many cousins, aunts, and uncles.

Clint will be missed more than words can ever express by everyone he touched, especially his grandkids. He spent the past 11 years of his life being a dedicated Pappy and lit up when he got to watch the kids play. His memory and character will live on through them.

(August 9, 1918 - December 24, 2015) 

Agnes Halfman Fuchs Agnes Halfman Fuchs (Aggie) age 97, a lifelong resident of Olfen and Rowena, died on December 24, 2015 surrounded by her family.

She was born in the Dryridge Community near Olfen on August 9, 1918 to W. J. and Ella (Ocker) Halfmann. After marrying Arnold Fuchs in 1940, they spent 60 years together raising a family on the Fuchs family farm in Olfen. In 1975 the couple moved to Rowena, where they both remained very active in farming along with their youngest son, Bob Fuchs, who continues operating the family farm.

Agnes was always an active member of the St. Boniface parish in Olfen where she was a charter member of the Catholic Daughters of America. She was also a member of the Christian Mother’s Society. Agnes was involved in many of the Olfen school activities and was a volunteer at Ballinger Memorial Hospital. Agnes loved working in the fields with Arnold, embroidering and quilting, deer hunting with friends and playing cards and dominos with adults and her grandchildren. She could also whip up a meal in a matter of minutes. Agnes’ six children, their spouses, thirteen grandchildren, and nineteen great grandchildren remember her fondly as the heart of the family. Her family is scattered all over the country, but everyone returns every other year for the Christmas gathering at Grandma’s house.

She is survived by her children, Helen Rose Ebaugh of Houston; Sister Deborah Ann Fuchs, a sister of Divine Providence, also of Houston; Jim Fuchs and his wife Sandi of Minnesota; Tom Fuchs and his wife Janis of Boerne; Roy Fuchs and his wife Diane of St. Louis; Bob Fuchs and his wife Puggy of Olfen. Agnes has two remaining sisters, Mary Lou Multer of Olfen and Dorrine Moeller of Rowena, and one sister-in-law, Lou Halfman of Eola.

The family gatherings at Grandma’s home will always be remembered as the highlight of the year for all four generations of the Fuchs family. As the family gathers this year for Christmas, they are grateful that they are all together to celebrate Grandma’s life.

A memorial service will be held at St. Boniface Church in Olfen at 6:00 pm this Sunday, December 27. A funeral mass will also be held at St. Boniface Church at 10:00 am on Monday, December 28. This is the church in which she and her late husband Arnold were baptized, married and raised their children. She will be laid to rest in St. Boniface Cemetery alongside of her husband who died in 2000.

The family expresses deep gratitude for the loving care Agnes received at the Allison House at SageCrest.
