Obituary for Elizabeth Agnes Orsak Engelholm

Elizabeth Agnes Orsak Engelholm was born on February 29, 1936 to Louis and Julia Orsak in Orchard, Texas. She attended school in the small town of Orchard and graduated in 1953 from Orchard High School. Elizabeth then pursued her education at Blinn College in Brenham, Texas . She had only one sister, Georgie Ohl, whom lives in Rosenburg, Texas.

On August 28, 1954 Elizabeth married Robert Walter Engelholm in Bellville, Texas. They were marred for 64 years this past August. They loved each other dearly and showed us all the meaning of true love. Their son Ronnie Engelholm was born on January 21, 1955. Their daughter Esther Sue Engelholm was born on September 23, 1957.

Along with being a loving wife and mother she loved her job working as Administrative Secretary at the Texas Department of Health and Human Services. Elizabeth worked there for many years and made some lifelong friends. Barbara Harris was one of her lifelong friends and coworker along with Pam Reese whom took care of her until her final day.

Elizabeth had many hobbies and interests she enjoyed doing. One of the things she was known for was her cooking and baking. If you ever tasted her kolaches or cookies you know what we mean, they would just melt in your mouth. She didn’t just love to make the sweets she loved to eat them as well. She loved her cows, pets, and hummingbirds with all of her heart along with her love for calligraphy. She was a part of the Garden Club where she attended the monthly meetings and kept every plant alive she had ever owned. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother each and every day. The memories we made with her will always be a part of our hearts. Words cannot describe how much she loved her family they were everything to her. She was so proud of each one of them as she would tell everyone she knew.

Elizabeth passed away on September 20, 2018 approximately 1:20 am at the age of 82. She went unexpectedly late that night but was not alone, Esther, Jamie, Ashley, and Patty held her hand until she became our guardian angel.

She is survived by her HUSBAND, Robert, SISTER, Georgie Ohl, DAUGHTER, Esther and husband Karl Mullineaux, GRANDDAUGHTERS, Jamie and husband Josh Falke, Ashley and husband Justin Beckendorff, GREAT GRAND CHILDREN, Kylan and Sean Falke and Emma, Faith and Hunter Beckendorff.

She was preceded in death by her parents and son, Ronnie.

Words cannot express how much we will miss you Elizabeth or Granny but know we will see you again one day soon until then keep smiling and remember how much we love you!!!
