Isabel Francis Fiebrich, age 73, of Rockne, Texas, passed away on September 8, 2017, in her sleep on the family homeplace. Isy, as we all knew her, was born February 18, 1944, in Jarrell Texas, to Timothy and Francis Havelka. She was very proud of her maiden name Havelka and her Czech roots. One of four children, she grew up in Jarrell, Texas and graduated salutatorian from Jarrell High School in 1962. Isabel moved to Austin where she met and fell in love with her first husband, James (Jimmy) Fiebrich. The two met on a double-date where they were both with someone else, but the opportunistic Jim got the phone number of the other guy's date, Isabel. The two were married in 1966 in Corn Hill, Texas, where Isabel's family was from and moved to Austin to raise their family. Isabel worked at Southwestern Bell until retirement, and Jim and Isabel raised three sons working very hard to put all three through college. Michael and Stephen went to The University of Texas at Austin and Richard to Texas State University in San Marcos. After the passing of Jimmy's mother, Paula Fiebrich, Jim, Isabel and young Richie moved back to the family homestead in Rockne. They soon built their dream home not far from the original farmhouse and settled into the tight knit local community. Sadly Jimmy, passed away unexpectedly in 2007 which was a huge blow to Isabel and the family. Due to the strength and resolve of herself, her family and the strong community that she lived in, she eventiually remarried Mr. W.C. (Bill) Frymire of Weir, Texas, her high-school sweetheart, on 9 May, 2015 at a ceremony in Rockne, Texas. Anyone who lives in or near Rockne, Texas knows and loves Isabel and her hospitality, warm personality and the swelling pride she showered her three sons with were famous.
