Oleta was such a sweet lady. She loved her work and was an inspiration to all of us at Community. She gave everything she had to our families. I will always remember her banana pudding for our team. Loved her banana pudding.

Personally I will always remember how she made my daughter feel. From saving Box Tops for her to making sure she remembered their last conversation when she visited the office. Oleta always went out of her way to let her know she was important. Oleta was a gem!
