Joan Marie Bighouse Burleson

Joan Marie Bighouse Burleson passed away at her home in Katy, on Friday, December 3, 2021, at the age of 64 years. Joannie, as she was commonly known, was born on April 7, 1957 in Charleston, West Virginia, to Robert Leo “Bob” Bighouse and Elizabeth Jane Rieger Bighouse. She was a loyal fan of the Katy Tigers, and with her kind heart she helped the team on different occasions. She was well-loved and is still thought highly of by past teammates of the Tiger football team. Joannie could also frequently be found quenching her sweet tooth with brownies, or quenching her thirst with an ice-cold Dr. Pepper. Above all, she loved her family dearly and held a special place in her heart for her grandchildren.
She is survived by her loving husband, Sidney Burleson; children, Jennifer (Brad) Barnes, Brittany Burleson and Kayla Burleson; grandchildren, Emily Hope, Maison, Evan, Lany, and Riley; father, Robert Leo “Bob” Bighouse; siblings, Bobby Bighouse, Julie (Linda) Bighouse, and William (Gail) Bighouse; and nieces, Erin, Heather, Alyssa and Lauren. She was preceded in death by her mother, Elizabeth Bighouse; brother, Jimmy Bighouse; sister, Beth Geiger; and granddaughter, Gracie.
The family will receive friends from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 7, 2021, at the Schmidt Funeral Home Grand Parkway, where funeral services will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, December 8, 2021, with Pastor Jeff Reynolds officiating.
