She is also survived by her first husband James Strassle of North Little Rock, Arkansas; uncle Owen Wood, several cousins, and a host of nieces and nephews. Also left to cherish her memory are many, many friends. Everyone loved Leta. Unfortunately, there are too many to name here. But you know who you are and you know that she deeply loved you all.

    “Leta” affectionately known to me as Grandmother. . Not that she was old enough to be my grandmother, just because of her first grandchild she was so proud to be a grandmother. I loved her so, she was a beautiful person inside and out. Just as her daughter Karen that I have known for well over 30 years. I will love and cherish her forever. You will be greatly missed Grandmother, you can dance with the angels now.

    I don’t know about anyone else’s mother-in-law, but MY Mother-In-Law was one of my favorite people. Always loving, forgiving, real, and fun to make laugh. I sure will miss you, Nanner. May we meet again one day.
