Carla Stroud


Born October 26, 1939, Carla Stroud went to be with the Lord Sunday, Dec. 27.
She was born in Bryan to Minnie Ola and Monroe Griffin.
A graduate of Houston's Lamar High School, Carla was a member of the school swim team and then took up golf, which she avidly pursued for many years.
She enjoyed traveling with her family and friends and especially the cruises she took with her late husband, "Pee Wee." She also looked forward to Bunco night with her "Bunco Buddies."
After moving to Bandera in 1994, Carla purchased the Beverage Barn RV Park where she befriended many people. Although tough, she had a heart as big as Texas. You always knew where you stood with Carla and she was never afraid to voice her opinion.
Carla is survived by her daughter, Monte Myers, of Lake Livingston; and brother-in-law Paul Stroud and his wife, Debbie, of San Antonio, as well as by many close and dear friends - all of whom will sorely miss her.
She was predeceased by her parents; husbands, Charlie Frerking and Kenneth "Pee Wee" Stroud; and brother-in-law Carl Mitchell.
A memorial service will be held to celebrate Carla's life at noon, Saturday, Jan. 23, at the Beverage Barn Pavilion, located off Highway 16 North.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Carla's name may be made to the American Heart Association, Multiple Sclerosis Society or to a charity of choice.
