BRUMMITT, Barbara Jean Shippy Barbara Brummitt Obituary Barbara Jean Shippy Brummitt of Dallas, Texas died peacefully Friday July 3, 2020 at Grand Brook Memory Care of Grapevine. She was born April 11, 1929 in Pulaski, Wisconsin, the daughter of Josephine Shippy and her husband Vincent, the local Doctor. George Darrell Brummitt, her husband of 54 years, and her brother, Bob Shippy, preceded her in death. She is survived by eight children, nineteen grandchildren, and twelve great grandchildren. Barbara was an amazing woman, dedicated Catholic, selfless volunteer, incredible mother, grandmother and great grandmother who generously gave so much time and love to her family and church. She started college at St. Scholastica in Duluth, Minnesota in 1946 where she met lifelong friends like Barbara Baskas, and earned her BA in Medical Technology there in 1950. In 1951 she moved to Flint, Michigan and was in charge of the laboratory at McLaren Hospital where she met her future husband George Brummitt. They married on June 30, 1953 and then moved to Houston, Texas. George's job as a manager for Chrysler led them to Dallas, Waco, San Antonio, Albuquerque, then finally back to Dallas in 1964 for the next 56 years. She worked at St. Paul Hospital in Dallas from 1967 through 1984 as a Medical Technologist in the Pathology Department and received their Award of Honor upon retirement. She founded Catholic Daughters of the Americas Court Saint Faustina (#2478) in October of 2000 at St. Monica's parish, and remained very active until 2018. She also founded a chapter of the Junior Catholic Daughters to mentor and help young women grow in their faith and learn to work for the good of others. Barbara loved being around her family. She opened her home to anyone in need. She enjoyed fishing, crabbing, swimming, boating, playing board games on rainy days and watching the hummingbirds at their beach house on Copano Bay. Barbara loved to plan large family gatherings, play with her grandchildren, cheer them on at their volleyball, football or soccer games. She taught her family many valuable lessons: working hard, saving money, watching a beautiful sunset over the bay, and giving yourself unconditionally. She was so generous - showing up to help whenever there was an emergency, sacrificing so much for the family and showing love every day. She had a deep spiritual life. A lifelong Catholic and charter member of St. Monica's parish in Dallas, she attended daily Mass, was a Eucharistic minister, and worked for various Catholic charities. In 2016 she was selected as Volunteer of the Year by her parish and presented an award by the Bishop at the Cathedral. It was her greatest honor. Our heartfelt gratitude to the staff of Grand Brook Memory Care in Grapevine. Generous and so loving, Barbara will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
