They then moved to Minneapolis Minnesota and finally settled in Fort Worth Texas where God blessed them with daughter Allison. In 1963 the family moved to Sacramento CA where they lived until 1975. During these years Betty was active in Fair Oaks Presbyterian Church along with the Chi Omega alumni chapter. She and Glenn moved to Tampa FL in 1975, where they lived and served at McGill AFB until 1980. After this final military tour, they relocated to Augusta GA.

She lived there until 2002 when she moved to Pearland to be near her daughter and grandson beginning another chapter of her life.

Those who met her always-loved Betty and she ministered to many in her own way. She was a founding member of Peace Presbyterian Church in Pearland where she was once again active in adult bible study and sharing God’s word.  Many described her as classy and elegant as she was known to always be perfectly put together and had to entertain in the finest way. It was during her years here in Pearland that she began to cruise and see parts of the world she never thought she would see with her best friend and others from Country Place. Betty had a love for gardening, her butterfly garden and the fresh flowers that were always in her home lifting her spirits. Despite many surgeries and physical handicaps, Betty a breast cancer survivor remained strong and determined not to let life get her down. She trusted that the Lord would carry her through and he did.

Betty was a loving mother, friend and grandmother who continually prayed for all the loved ones in her life. She will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved her. May we find comfort in knowing that she is now experiencing “the gift of grace” our Lord and Savior promised all of us through the resurrection of his Son Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Glory be to God!

In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations to Peace Presbyterian Church, the Wounded Warrior fund or Breast Cancer society.  A Memorial Service for Betty will be held Tuesday, July 7, 2015 at 4:00 pm at Clayton Funeral Home, 5530 W. Broadway, Pearland, Texas 77581 with Pastor Scott Cummings officiating.

Norbert was truly the patriarch of his family and loved them dearly.  Norbert enjoyed old country music and even started his own band named the South Texas Crystals with his two sons.  As his grandchildren grew up and started to play softball and baseball, he became extremely involved at Pearland Little League because of his love for his family.  In the early days, practice fields were scarce so he took it upon himself to build his own fields and batting cages on his property.  Norbert always loved tractor work and even in his later years could be found on the tractor tilling his garden, mowing grass, or spreading rocks in his driveway.  As time passed and he became sick, he still found a way to be involved in the kids’ life any way he could.  Norbert taught the grandkids how to make his treasured dumplings; played multiple rounds of dominoes, always looked forward to his gambling trips, and became a self-proclaimed “field supervisor” for his daughter Pam’s real estate company.

Norbert was strong in his faith and loved the Lord.  He modeled his life after the principles of being generous and helpful to all in need.  Norbert believed the most important thing was to love and respect one another.  He was never afraid of a challenge or a project that he decided to take on.  Norbert will forever be remembered for his love for people, his fun-loving nature and his amazing ability to always cheer people up.  He never met a stranger and made friends wherever he went.  Norbert will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved him.

Harrigan, Marjorie Berney


Marjorie Berney Harrigan passed away on the morning of April 28. She was 94. She died at home, in her own bed, beneath a reproduction of Van Gogh’s Sunflowers, a rosary on her night table, the walls and every level surface of her bedroom crowded with framed photographs of loved ones.

She was born Marjorie Elizabeth Berney on Nov. 28, 1920 in Horton, Kansas. Her father was Irish, her mother was Czech, both sides steeped in many generations of Catholic lore and values.  After graduating as the valedictorian from her high school in 1938, she moved with her parents and five siblings to Oklahoma City, where she studied nursing at St. Anthony’s Hospital and enlisted in the Army during World War II.  After basic training at Hammer Field in Fresno California, where she learned to assemble and fire a submachine gun, Lt. Berney was transferred to a desert air base in Ephrata, and later to Hamilton Field in San Francisco, just beyond the Golden Gate. There she would stand on the tarmac with the other surgical nurses, waiting to minister to the wounded men being flown in from the horrific battles of the Pacific war. While stationed in Ephrata, she met Capt. James E. McLaughlin, known as Mac to his friends. He was a decorated fighter pilot who had been shot down off the coast of New Guinea and, as a test pilot a few years later, had bailed out of an airplane that had broken in half in mid-air.

When Marjorie met Mac, he was in the hospital recovering from the malaria he had developed in the South Pacific. Theirs was a movie-worthy WW II romance between a cocky pilot and his brown-eyed nurse, a courtship in which he took her on moonlit flights over San Francisco Bay and beneath the Golden Gate Bridge.  When he was out of the state one day and learned that another pilot had developed a crush on Marjorie, he preemptively mailed her an engagement ring. She accepted his proposal by return mail.

But it was a romance overtaken by tragedy. After the war was over, and after they were married, Mac was killed in a plane crash in Washington State. By that time, Marjorie had a six- month-old son, Jim, and was pregnant with Steve. Stunned and grieving, she moved home to her parents’ house in Oklahoma City, where a few months latershe was struck by lightning while still pregnant.

She survived, and with the support of the extensive Berney family she earned a bachelors degree at Oklahoma City University. After a few years she met Tom Harrigan, who as a young man had been a roughneck for Standard Oil in the Argentinean wilderness, and later became an independent oil operator based in Abilene, Texas. He was almost 20 years older, but his confident bearing and his sly Irish humor were irresistible. They eloped to Fort Worth, where Tom knocked on the door of the Bishop’s residence and talked him into suspending the rule that they couldn’t be married during Lent. He sent Marjorie shopping for a wedding dress at Neiman Marcus, and bought a pair of 1954 Oldsmobiles.  They moved to Abilene, where Tom became a father to Marjorie’s two young boys who had never known their own.

The family lived in a modest frame house, green with a yellow front door, with a yard bordered by a cinderblock fence and a water fountain Tom installed in the boys’ bedroom. They had two more children, Julie and Tommy. In 1959 the Harrigans moved to Corpus Christi. Marjorie was terrified of water but also bewitched by it. Almost every Sunday after Mass–which was always a mandatory event -she and Tom drove the children to Access Road Three on Padre Island and had a picnic on the side of the car.  These Padre Island outings bequeathed to her children a lifelong fascination with the ocean and the moody seascape of the Texas coast.

While still in her 40’s, she suffered a series of heart attacks that might very well have killed her, but through careful consultation with her doctors and with her formidable nurse’s insight, she lived for almost 50 more years without another incident. She raised her children through the tumultuous years of the late 60’s and early 70’s, providing a constant moral beacon during a time when traditional values were in a confusing state of upheaval. Her love for her children–unquestioned, unqualified, boundless-was the central understanding of their lives.

She was widowed for a second time when Tom died in 1989, but there was much life, and much purpose, still ahead for her. She began working for the Diocese of Corpus Christi and various governmental agencies, organizing and administering the Natural Family Planning program throughout South Texas.  She became a leader and nationally recognized expert in the use of a woman’s natural menstrual cycle to plan for fertility. This was important work for her, a perfect blending of her nursing skills and her unassailable Catholic values. As an advocate for Natural Family Planning, she traveled to Rome to meet Pope John Paul VI, and to Washington DC to consult with Mother Teresa. She was a fervent–though not strident–believer in the idea that life at all stages is sacred. Well into her 70’s, she was driving alone along back roads throughout South Texas and the Rio Grande Valley, instructing young couples in how to avoid pregnancy in a way that was consistent with their beliefs, and using her knowledge of the ovulation cycle to help others who were desperate to conceive a child.

In 1998, she retired from the Diocese and moved to Nassau Bay, across the street from the Johnson Space Center in Houston.  She was enthralled by the wonder of space travel, by the view of Galveston Bay outside her condominium window, and most of all by her children and grandchildren who lived nearby. Her life was struck by tragedy again in 2005, when her beautiful and beloved daughter Julie died of cancer, but throughout that long ordeal, true to her unbreakable character, she remained her family’s rallying point.

She grew old, bedridden by arthritis, uncomplaining of her constant pain, carefully monitoring her medications, staying up to speed with medical research, reading constantly until her eyes finally gave out. After that happened she still lay in bed with the New York Times always open in her lap. She never gave up hope that she might one day be able to decipher its blurry words again.

Family members who died before her include her parents, Joseph and Gladys Berney; husbands, James E. McLaughlin and Thomas F. Harrigan; daughter, Julia Ann Sharp; brothers, Joe, Bob, and Paul Berney; sisters, Jeanette and Rosemary Berney.

She is survived by a loving multitude. Her brother, Mike Berney; her sons, James P. Harrigan and wife, Katy; Stephen M. Harrigan and wife, Sue Ellen; Thomas F. Harrigan Jr. and wife, Theresa; son-in-law, Robert Sharp; grandchildren, Laura Peters and husband, Cort, Cynthia Wholley and husband, Brian, James Harrigan and wife, Emily, Marjorie Randolph and husband, Rodney, Dorothy Guerrero and husband, Michael, Charlotte Ernst and husband, Zach. Tom, Claire and Stephen Harrigan, Margaret, Alexandra and Robert Sharp; great grandchildren, Ella, Cort and Quin Peters, Audrey and Katherine Harrigan, Mason and Travis Randolph, Maisie Guerrero and another Guerrero baby who is on the way; and by an abundance of nieces, nephews, and dear friends, all of whom she loved, and upon whose lives she made an indelible impact.

In her last months, even as she knew she was leaving the world, she took nothing but joy in the new life that was entering it.  Just before she lost consciousness and fell into the long sleep that preceded her death, she was shown a picture of one of her great grandchildren. Her last words were “gorgeous sweet darling.”

At her request, her grave marker will be inscribed with only her name and a single word below it: Blessed.


A visitation for Marjorie will be held Monday, May 4, 2015 from 5:00 – 7:00 pm at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church, 18223 Point Lookout Drive, Nassau Bay, Texas 77058.  The funeral mass will take place Tuesday, May 5, 2015 at 10:30 am with Father Wencil Pavlovsky officiating.  Interment will follow at Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Dickinson, Texas.
