Faith, family and friends were important to her along with Coca-Cola, naps, vacations to Cloudcroft and trips to the lake with family and friends.
Brigitte spent 22 years as a teacher at Hale Center High School. Every student was considered her child and she was fondly referred to as the “school mom.” She wanted every student to be included and feel valued.
Fondest memories include her being an active parent and teacher assisting with FFA livestock events, high school cheer sponsor, basketball score keeper and assisting with transportation of band equipment.
Her latest memory was spending time with family and especially her granddaughter, Hadley, who was the light of her world.
She took great pride in sharing the accomplishments of her husband, children and grandchild.
Brigitte was the matriarch of the family following the passing of her mother-in-love taking great pleasure in planning family gatherings.
She is survived by her husband, Brian, of Hale Center; two sons, Troy and wife, Tina, and granddaughter, Hadley, of Spade and Tyler, of Hale Center; her parents, Gordon and Janice Graves of Spade; her father-in-love, Bobby McGann of Levelland; her brother, Clay Graves and wife, Hallie, of Shallowater; a sister-in-love, Brittany Honesto and husband, B.J., of Odessa; brothers-in-love: Brad McGann of May, Brandon McGann and wife, Keziah, of Tallahassee, Florida and Justin Thompson and wife, Jami, of Paris; and nephews and nieces: Lilah, Ellie, Collins and AC Graves, Donovan McGann, D’Nae and Jaxson Honesto, Jace, Julia and Jared Thompson.
Brigitte was preceded in death by her mother-in-love, Nelda Conaway McGann.
