  1. Oleta was blessed to live a long life with many friends. I had her on my Carey School Reunion list to mail her an invitation to this years reunion. I lived in Carey in the 40s 50s like the Lanhams. God bless you at this time with memories of her love for you.

  2. Saddened to hear about Oleta’s passing. Many fond memories at the Lanham household in Childress. My thoughts & prayers are with you.

  3. Sorry to hear about Leta Fern passing Many fond memories of sitting around table with your folks both in Childress and amarillo ❤️
