Ollie Bea Colbert age 79, passed peacefully from this life at her home in Tishomingo, Okla., on June 4, 2020. She was born on Nov. 28, 1940 in Yale, Va., to Jerry Moore and Carla Richardson. Ollie was the church clerk and treasurer of First Baptist Church on 6th and Burris for 46 years. She was a devoted member and loved her church family dearly. Ollie also worked at Dee’s Sewing Manufactory for many years and worked for Gentiva Home Health. She was the designated full-time babysitter for all her great-grandchildren and she loved her family deeply with all she had. She was the type of person who would give the shirt off her back if you needed it and could light up a room with her smile and laugh. Heaven gained a beautiful soul and our family now has the best guardian angel looking down on them.
