HARRELL
On May 2, 2001, John D. Harrell, after living almost a century, passed away in McKenna Memorial Hospital in New Braunfels, Texas. 
J.D. was born on November 27, 1909, in Round Rock, Texas, as the ninth of 11 children born to James G. and Addie Harrell, a Round Rock ranching family. 
After high school, J.D. began working in the Texas oil fields. His work in the oil business eventually took him to a small village near Maracaibo, Venezuela, where, in his quest for a bridge partner, he met an English schoolteacher, Sheila Smith. In 1950, the Texas rancher and the daughter of a Durham banker were married. 
The couple lived in Venezuela, Scotland and Sicily and had three daughters. Of all their overseas travels, their fondest memories and most colorful tales were from their seven-year stay in Sicily. In 1960, the Harrells bought a ranch and tourist cabins near Leakey, Texas. However, ranch life in the Texas hill country did not agree with the English banker’s daughter. Even so, it took over 10 years for Sheila to convince J.D. to sell the ranch. They spent another three years in Venezuela before eventually retiring in Canyon Lake, Texas. J.D. spent his retirement years growing vegetables (for his ministry of vegetable diplomacy as he called it), playing bridge and caring for his beloved wife, Sheila, until her death on December 10, 1988. 
J.D. is survived by his daughters, Barbara Harrell, Judy and her husband, Randy Walker and Margo and her husband Ted Woollven; his grandchildren, Lora Woollven, Katie Woollven, Joshua Walker and Jeremy Walker; and numerous nephews and nieces. He will be remembered for his colorful stories, his delightful sense of humor and love of life, his adventuresome spirit and his loyalty and faithfulness to his wife, family and friends. 
A memorial service for Mr. Harrell was conducted on Saturday May 5, 2001, at St. Paul Lutheran Church in New Braunfels. Interment was at Cranes Mill Cemetery at Canyon Lake.
