Leola V. Webster

On the wings of bluebirds and butterflies, Leola V. Webster’s spirit, was met by angels in heaven and the loved ones who went before her on Monday, March 10, 2014. A memorial service will be held at Galbreath Pickard Funeral Home at 1pm Saturday, March 15, 2014.

After 97 years on earth, her new mailing address is God, Glory Avenue, Heaven where she is playing dominoes with all her family under the big oak trees at her parent’s house outside Broken Bow, Oklahoma, where her father, Dallas Polk and her mother, Dionitia Cassandra Willingham raised her and their brood of 11 brothers and sisters. She is the last Willingham of that generation to pass away.

Up there, under the front yard big Oak tree, her eight brothers were playing dominoes, and whooping it up around the old card table, were: Romy, Bryan, Bruce, Dallas Polk Jr, Clyde Barker, Ledger Walton, Walter Colbert (Cobby), and Haskell Eugene (Hack) and her two sisters Lois Fay and Gladys Ford.

At the table playing is her husband, and life partner of 47 years, Lee D. Webster, of Paoli, Oklahoma, who passed away in 1986, and her two living sons, Wayne A. Webster of Richardson, Texas, and James (Jimmy) Haskell Webster of Weatherford, Texas. She leaves behind three nieces, Judy Souza, Kathy Albright, Patricia, and a nephew Jimmy Willingham, all originally from Santa Maria, California.

And in Oklahoma, she leaves behind her sister in law, Pat Willingham, of Idabel, two nephews, Bruce Willingham and wife Gwen, of Idabel, and their children Christopher and Mark, nephew, Russell Willingham, wife Dana, of Broken Bow, and their son Michael. Sister in law Mary Mauldin of Edmond Oklahoma also grieves her passing. Not to leave out a very special person, who is not a blood relative, but an adopted daughter, and sister, is her wonderful caretaker of five years, Cinda Atkinson.
