My mother was the daughter of Dave Andrew Kensler and Olive Ellinor Andahl. She married Robert Evo Costa on February 18, 1952 in Reno, Washoe County, Nevada; Arthur Adrian "Art" Leal on January 15, 1958 in Reno, Washoe County, Nevada; and Living Bubeck (links for his Mother and Father). She had 4 children: Elizabeth Ann Nora, Robert Evo, Living Bubeck, and Living Bubeck.
Pansy's favorite color was green, everything in green. She considered this color as one of God's favorites since He decorated the earth with so much of it. Her favorite flower was the pansy, like her name. She was a very talented artist and enjoyed arts and crafts. She loved roses, angels, dolls, cooking and baking. She created the best chocolate fruitcake that anyone could ever appreciate and actually enjoy eating it. Your fruitcake is baking again today, mom, in remembrance of your birthday, and hope you can smell it in heaven.
In Loving Memory of My Mom:
"Enjoy the little things
You may look back
The Big Things."
- Author Unknown
I am so grateful that I had a mother who taught me to enjoy the little things. It was such a joy to see how much she devoted her life to being so thoughtful of others and had so much pleasure in giving and sharing all the creative things she did to try to brighten someone's day.
We often joke about her kingdom of little things that would make such a wonderful museum... They are all precious reminders of how she always kept us in her heart and thoughts daily.
When life seemed to limit her in the things she could do, she always amazed us with all the little gadgets and collectibles she would find or create from them. All of her little treasures that she shared with us are reflections of how much she cared for all of us so much.
She made such an effort to capture each and every detail of not just things she liked for herself but of things that reminded her of the love she had for so many.
I am so thankful God gave me a mother to teach and show me the appreciation of every little thing.

Psalm 37:16 (KJV): A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.
Please note that my mother's death certificate contains inaccurate information from a doctor who had since skipped town and abandoned her patients. Thus, I did not seek any corrective action. Specifically, on the location of her death. At the time of her death, my mother was in Katy, Harris County, Texas. I know, as I was there while the paramedics worked on her; I spoke face-to-face with the Emergency Room doctor and staff; and I was there as we made arrangements for her burial. Also of note is that Katy has been a tri-county city, including Fort Bend, Harris, and Waller counties. These county boundaries have also changed over the years.
