Katybell Esther Rodenbeck MIkus was born December 3, 1925 in Detmold, Texas, Milam County, the fourth daughter of William and Margaret Unnasch Rodenbeck. She grew up in the Detmold community near Thorndale in a loving family with five sisters and two brothers.

Katy graduated from Thorndale High School in 1942. She worked in the family business until she married Jesse J. Mikus on August 24, 1947. He preceded her in death on July 6, 1992 after 45 years of marriage.

Katy was a founding and very active member of St. Jerome Catholic Church. She loved to travel with her children and siblings, they took many trips together. She always said she was wealthy, but her wealth was not in money or material things, but in the joy and love that came from her family.

Katy leaves to cherish her memory her beloved daughters, Kay Mikus of Austin and Amy Poston and husband, Michael of Hewitt; loving son, Jesse John, Jr. and wife, Brenda of Hewitt; and three grandchildren, Braden Mikus, Derek Poston and Ashley Poston.

Kay and John, my heartfelt sympathy goes out to you and the rest of your family. I was lucky to have met your mother, and she was so sweet, kind, and beautiful. Her kindness is reflected in the beautiful, and kind souls that you guys are. I know you will miss her dearly. May you find comfort in all the memories and happy times you shared with her.

I loved Miss Katybell for who she was and what she stood for. She would come in the HEB where I worked, & tell me she needed a hug! I was never too busy, that I could not stop what I was doing, and help her find the items on her list. She taught me one of life's valuable lessons, and I will never forget that lesson: Count your Blessings every day! What a beautiful Soul she has!
