After a 12 month struggle, Ganell, beloved wife of Charley Pemberton, died at Harbour Hospice in Beaumont, TX.

Besides Charley, she is survived by 2 daughters, 2 step-children, 3 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren, and her adopted family, the Avilas of Blanco.

Ganell and Charley purchased 11 acres in Blanco in 1997 and developed the land into a property they named Lavender Hill at 1378 River Run. They were second in the order of planting lavender in Blanco County, and first in the Lavender Festival development. She, her friends, and family received hundreds of visitors to her gift shop during the festivals.

Elegant, dignified, devout, and reserved, she personified the matriarch. She welcomed 17 hurricane refugees, who left her home, bonded in friendship for life. Rest in peace, dear lady.

A mass and memorial service will be held at Saint Ferdinand Catholic Church in Blanco on Thursday, September 12, 2013 at 10:00 AM.
