DUNCAN — Thelma Lorene Webb

March 21, 1922 — Jan. 6, 2014

Thelma Lorene Webb, 91, was born March 21, 1922, in Norman to Ferdinand Karl and Edna Mable (Ditzler) Graves. She passed away Jan. 6, 2014, in Yukon.

Funeral services will be 2 p.m., Friday, Jan.10 at Bethel Church in Duncan. Interment will follow at Duncan Cemetery. The family will receive friends at the funeral home from 6-8 p.m. Thursday.

Visitation will be held at Bethel Church at 1 p.m. Friday, prior to the service. Arrangements are under the direction of Yanda & Son Funeral Home, Yukon.

Thelma came to Yukon in 1999 from Duncan. She was very active in her churches throughout her life, playing the piano, singing, and teaching and was always willing to serve others.

She raised her four daughters with her husband, Coy Webb in Burkburnett, Texas, which brought her the most joy in life — being a good wife, mother and grandmother.

She was a member of the Assembly of God Church. As a young woman, she was a switchboard operator for a telephone company, but quit work to stay home and raise her family. After that, she worked for Sears for 19 years.

Thelma is survived by her daughters, Carla Arinder and husband David, Carol Sheppard and husband Clyde, Cheryl Gillespie and Kay Webb; grandchildren, Ryan and Meg Sheppard, Courtney and Richard Dimmitt, Garrett Gillespie, David and Caitlin Arinder Jr., Lauren Sheppard, Aaron and Liz Arinder, and Katie Gillespie; great-grandchildren, Garrett Looney, Eli Sheppard, and Jaxon Sheppard; sisters, Dorothy Rice and Wanda Haney; and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Coy Webb; brother, Charles “Buddy” Graves; and other family members.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Thelma’s name to Autumn Bridge Hospice, 3500 NW 39th, Oklahoma City, OK 73112.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
