Billye L. Youngblood
Nov. 24, 1930 - June 2, 2013
Known affectionately as "BooBoo" to her family and friends, Billye had a wonderful and storied life full of travel and adventure.
From being a Concierge at the famous Shamrock Hotel in Houston and hosting many of the biggest names in Entertainment from the 40s and 50s, to being a pioneer in the airline industry as one of the first female regional sales managers for a major airline. After traveling the world and retiring from Alitalia Airlines she worked in a number of fields and moved from Houston to San Marcos where she volunteered at Central Texas Medical Center and with various other charitable organizations. Her radiance and kindness will be so dearly missed.
She leaves behind her great nephew Nathan Gershon and his wife Ruti Gershon M.D., as well her great great niece Kaili Gershon along with so many friends she loved dearly. The family would like to especially thank the Burdick family, the Stewart family and Cody.
In lieu of memorials and flowers, a charitable act that helps those in need or alleviates the suffering of people and animals would truly honor the memory and example that Billye leaves behind. Please sign the online guest registry at www.thomasonfuneralhome.com, (512) 396-2300.
