Billie Joyce  Masters
Billie Masters of Austin and Paris is survived by her daughter lili li (nee Loretta Masters) and son-in-law Walter White and their sons John Hanna, Mark Hanna, and Paul Hanna, her son Danny and his wife Mary and son Ricky, and her son Paul who cared for her in her later years. Her grandsons called her "Lallie" after John's baby name for her and with their wives gave her great-grandsons and great-granddaughters.
Billie was a small town girl from West Texas who moved to Austin in 1962 and kept an historic apartment in Paris. She worked with Mary Kaltman at the Driskill Hotel and was social director at the Westwood Country Club. Billie could throw a party like no one else and was given a certificate signed by Lady Bird naming her "Number One Party Girl." She designed the food and flowers for many weddings and dealt in French and Italian antiques, the fine and fabulous only. Her garden, of incomparable design, was a habitat for rare butterflies. She loved Baudelaire, the opera, and the color pink. Billie will be remembered by the many who loved her. - by Lili Li
