The biography for Dorothy Huff is empty. What can you add?
I was the 4th of 5 children born to Dave and Olga Huff. I attended school in the Cypress-Fairbanks ISD all 12 years, graduating 4th in my class in 1964. I excelled in sports earning a place on the Texas Girls Coaches' South All-Star team. As a child I faithfully attended Fairbanks Methodist Church. I received advance placement at Sam Houston State University where I earned a BA in English and Math. In 1966 I met the love of my life, Philip T. LaBarbera, who was attending Texas A&M University as a pre-med student. In 1968 we married and I began my teaching career at Ball High in Galveston, TX. In 1970 we welcomed our first child, Paul. After a move to Austin, our daughter Ann was born. Then, after a move to Fort Worth, our son Brian was born. We finally settled in Nacogdoches, where we adopted a fourth child, Leah. After raising a family, teaching, and doing volunteer work in East Texas, my marriage of almost 30 years failed and I moved back to Luling, the small Central Texas town where I was born. Here I live with my dependent sister who has been under my care since 1981. We enjoy our century old tumble down house with it's squishy floors and high ceilings. I have had the good fortune to travel quite a bit with my vagabond daughter Anne. In addition to many trips to Scotland, she and I have traveled to Canada, Mexico, and coast to coast in the US. My favorite thing is to visit family. I have three grandchildren and one great grandchild. 2014 In 2015 my dear sister Carolyn passed away after a short illness. I then sold the old house in Luling, TX and moved in with two of my children, living alternately in Round Rock, TX and New York City. It is a blessing to be welcomed in my children’s homes where I can make contributions to daily life. In 2021 I welcomed a second great grandchild. 2021 (NYC)
