Oleta was an avid walker and met many friends while making her rounds at the mall. She loved to shop. If you don’t believe us, just come look at her closet! She enjoyed trading and collecting antique glassware and she could wheel and deal with the best of them. Oleta loved people and never met a stranger. Her smile was contagious and she loved to laugh. Most of all, Oleta loved her family, and they would all say that she was the most unselfish person anyone could ever meet. Oleta was loved by one and all.
