  1. Rhuella was our friend and neighbor, she was so kind to my mother and family and we enjoyed her company during our family outings and special occasions especially birthdays and Easter. We enjoyed seeing Rhuella and Billy riding in the golf cart through the pastures and watching the deer. Billy was a wonderful caregiver and our deepest sympathies are with him during this trying time. Our small community will certainly miss Rhuella Owen.

All of her family, and special friends Billy Roberts and Mae Francis Johnson, have our sympathies. Rhuella leaves all of us with wonderful memories.
