Oletha Branch of Keo, Arkansas, went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, January 19, 2022. Oletha was born on February 14, 1944, a longtime resident of Arkansas, but also called Michigan her home. She was a well-loved woman whose faith, strength, and beauty were evident until her final days.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Esau Ingram and Vantee Stoneham, multiple brothers and sisters, and her youngest child, Sandra D. Westbrook.
Oletha’s memory lives on in her children (Betty J. Grant and Darrell Fletcher), her grandchildren (Tarena Ruff, Dantoria Fletcher, Antonina Bracey, Will Dalevon Pettaway, Challa Harris, Winzell Pettaway, and Shalandra Westbrook), and multiple great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.
Though she is no longer with us, her memory and teachings are carried on with those closest to her. Oletha gave a little of herself with each interaction, showing her big personality and strong will. She will always be missed.
Arrangements are entrusted to A Natural State Funeral Service. 2620 West Main Street, Jacksonville, Arkansas, 72076.
