Obituary for Betty Jane Fritz (Clark)

Betty Jane  Fritz (Clark)
Betty Jane Fritz, 81, passed away on March 17, 2018 at the Isle at Watercrest in Mansfield.

Funeral: 11:00 a.m. Wednesday, March 21, at White Bluff Resort Chapel, 1072 White Bluff Drive, Whitney, with Pastor Terry Cosby and Dr. Charles Wade officiating. Out of town guests and immediate family members are invited to a light lunch following the service. Interment: Approximately 2:30 p.m. at Barry Cemetery, 8637 FM 927, Walnut Springs, 76690. Visitation: 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 20, at Wade Family Funeral Home, 4140 W. Pioneer Parkway, Arlington.

Betty was born on January 29, 1939 in San Marcos, TX to Alvin Mason Clark and Sybil Jane Shelton Clark. While attending Baylor University, she met and fell in love with her future spouse, Don, while he fulfilled his military commitment with the Air Force based in Waco. After a brief move to St. Louis, MO, they returned to Arlington, TX to raise their family. She began teaching in the Arlington ISD after both her daughters began their elementary education, and helped open Lamar High School in north Arlington as their Spanish teacher and Foreign Languages Chair. While serving enthusiastically as the sponsor of the Los Paisanos Spanish Club at Lamar, and coaching many gifted students in Advanced Placement Spanish for their university studies, she completed her own advanced degree with a Masters of Arts in Foreign Languages. She hosted many trips for her high school students during spring breaks and summers, giving many their first experience with international travel to Mexico, Spain, and other European countries. After 29 years of teaching, she retired with Don to the White Bluff community as part of the first group of full-time residents at their beautiful lake-side home. She and Don were instrumental in beginning a home-based worship group in the early years there, and eventually achieved their dream of building a beautiful non-denominational chapel full of devoted Christians. Betty also was a charter member of the new Fort Graham chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), and along with Don enjoyed discovering new and interesting facts of her family’s rich history in the Hill country. She took the greatest delight in hosting and caring for her extended family in their home, including her father, daughters, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 58 years, Donald Clayton Fritz.

Survivors: Daughters, Catherine Fritz and Christine Truitt and husband, John; brother-in-law, Jack Fritz and wife, Mikka; grandchildren, Cailey Stoerner and husband, Heath, Tyler Truitt, Courtney Gay and husband, Brett, and Tanner Truitt; great-grandchildren, Henley Stoerner and Cathan Stoerner.
