Vada Bagwell1

F, b. 27 October 1920, d. 14 February 2011

Klaus after 1935.2 Vada Bagwell died on 14 February 2011 in Lufkin, Angelina County, Texas, at age 90
Vada Klaus was a woman beloved by many. She lived most of her life in Flat Prairie, Texas and attended Zion Hill Baptist Church. The church and cemetery sit on land donated by her family, the Bagwells. Vada's childhood home still stands not far from the church, and is over 100 years old.

The sister to 10 others, Vada grew up knowing how to make a simple life great, and how to make a little go a long way.

She married John Tillman Klaus who she loved very dearly, and had three children: John, Joe and David. Her sons married and produced many grandchildren and great-grandchildren for Vada to spoil.

After a few years of living in Houston, the family moved back to Flat Prairie. Vada worked at Groveton Elementary School as a teacher's aid for most of her career and many of the students she worked with remember her fondly.

Vada Klaus was most well known for her legendary smile, warm and kind personality, the job she loved, great cooking, her afternoon Dr Pepper and her fervent devotion to her family and to God. She embodied true Christianity in her every day life, helping others before herself, exhibiting compassion and kindness in all things.

When Vada died, the amount of people who attended her funeral could not all fit in the church. Many stood, some were forced to crowd around the entrance outside straining to hear the pastor speak. People travelled from all over the US, and overseas - as far as Australia - to say goodbye. She will always be missed by those who knew her.

Sons: John Tillman Klaus II, Joe Klaus and David Lynn Klaus(d).

John Tillman Klaus was a descendant of German migrants who moved to the USA in the late 1700s. As a young man, John was devastatingly handsome and his wife, Vada, famously snatched him from the clutches of the wrong woman. They made an attractive couple, married and had three beautiful children together: John, Joe and David (in that order). He served most of his career as a policeman and became Chief of Police in Groveton, Texas.

His brother, Joe Bartee Klaus died in WWII when his plane was shot down over Burma.1
