Obituary for Billie Jean Gaither (Sommerfield)

Billie Jean Gaither, 63 of Maypearl, TX passed away early Saturday morning on July 15, 2023 at the Methodist Midlothian Medical Center in Midlothian, TX from a long battle of cancer related illnesses. She was born on March 21, 1960 at St. Lukes hospital in Houston, Tx to William Steinhoff Sommerfield and Martha Lorraine Willburn. Billie accomplished many amazing roles in her life. She was a stunt double for several movies, and the greatest love of her career was completing stunts to keep celebrities out of harms way, even if that meant herself taking that risk. Billie went on to have three children Monty Gaither of Midlothian, Bobby Berry of Maypearl, and Brandy Berry of Weatherford. She also had eight amazing grandchildren and always said that besides the tremendous joy of being a mother, being a grandmother was the greatest joy of all. She was a talented artist, had a fondness for writing poetry, enjoyed music, fishing, working in her garden, and loved cooking for her family, friends, and others in need. Throughout her life she battled several forms of cancer and like a warrior with an unending fight to live, she overcame it. Billie regardless of her illness never let that stop her from living life and always being there for her family and friends. Her warm heart, sweet smile, and big hugs will be forever loved and missed by her family and everyone who knew her.

Billie is proceeded in death by her first husband, her mother, and her father.

She is survived by her husband, her three children, eight grandchildren, family and friends.
