Oleta Betty Obituary, Death – In the quiet town of Hartshorne, Oklahoma, the community is coming together to remember and honor a remarkable woman, Oleta Betty Sue Fazekas, who peacefully passed away in her sleep on August 26, 2023. Born on April 8, 1933, in nearby Wilburton, Oleta’s life was a tapestry of love, generosity, and unwavering faith.
Oleta’s legacy is celebrated through two gatherings where family and friends can pay their respects. The family will receive guests from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 30, 2023, at the Jones Harkins Funeral Home Chapel. A heartfelt funeral service will follow at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, August 31, 2023, at the Sonshine Church, led by Reverend Kenneth Harris. The final chapter of Oleta’s journey will see her laid to rest at Centerpoint Cemetery under the compassionate care of Jones Harkins Funeral Home.
As we gather to remember Oleta, we honor her life through the roles she embraced with grace and warmth. She was the cherished matriarch of her family, a loving mother to Monica Studeman, and a doting grandmother to Rebekah Ingle, Debra Riley, and Lydia Studeman. Oleta’s adored great-grandchildren, Thomas, J.W., Drew, Elizabeth, Jackson, Auston, and Athena, were her pride and joy.
Oleta’s lifelong friendship with Edna Pitchford was a shining example of the enduring bonds she formed. Their friendship was a testament to the saying, “True friends are never apart; maybe in distance but never in heart.” The love and respect they held for Oleta are a testament to the kind of woman she was, and her memory will continue to inspire them.
In her journey through life, Oleta faced the pain of loss, including her loving husband, Thomas “Tommy” Fazekas, and several family members who held special places in her heart. Their memories were a source of comfort and strength for Oleta.
