Jeanetta Foston Probasco, passed away Feb. 2, 2009 at home. Funeral services are 1 p.m. Monday, Feb. 9, 2009, at Greater New Prospect Baptist Church, 14020 West Richmond in Needville.
She was born Aug. 30, 1919, to Alex and Bettie Lewis Foston in Needville, Fort Bend County, Texas.
For five decades Jeanetta Probasco, with a bachelor of science in home economics and a master degree from Prairie View A&M College, and professional counseling certificate from the University of Texas in Austin, dedicated her life to teaching and counseling hundreds of young people.
Her teaching journey began in the 1941-42 school year with the Danville Consolidated School District at Fredonia High school, where she remained until the school district closed in 1958. In 1959, she joined the Kilgore I.S.D. and taught at C.B. Dansby High School. After integration in 1970, Jeanetta, as a counselor, joined the Kilgore Junior High School staff and then the staff of Kilgore High School in 1977, remaining until her 1991 retirement.
Jeanetta joined the Fredonia Baptist Church of Kilgore, shortly after she was hired to teach in the Danville Consolidated School District, and remained a faithful member until her illness forced her to relocate with family members. She worked with many civic and community organizations.
Final arrangements are entrusted to Gooden Funeral Home, 1716 Ave. E, in Rosenberg, 281-342-9169.
