Memories Timeline


  1. My deepest sympathy to the family. Odelia was a wonderful county clerk for many years. She made doing business with the county a pleasure, and her cheerful, friendly personality made everyone feel so welcome.

  2. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. "Miss" Odelia was a very special lady to my family. I sure will miss her sweet hugs on Sunday mornings. May precious memories be of comfort to you all at this time.

  3. Aunt Dee was such a wonderful lady and terrific role model. She was always there for a laugh and a hug. A true Texas Steel Magnolia. I am honored to have known her.

  4. Miss Odelia was a fixture in Linden, at the First United Methodist Church, and on Hillcrest Drive for as long as I can remember. She made the best coconut cream pies in the world!!! They were the first things to go at our church covered dish dinners. I'll always remember her sweet smile and genuine concern for her friends and neighbors. We'll miss you, Miss Odelia!

  5. Marilyn, we're praying for you during this time.. I know you will miss her dearly…Love you, Janie
