Onetta was born March 17, 1928, in Kingston, Okla., the daughter of Lucille “Lucey” (Brown) and William “Bill” Stuckey. She died Nov. 26, 2020 at Lake Country Nursing Center, Marietta.
Onetta spent most of her life in Love County. She married the love of her life James “Ernest” Fincher on Aug. 31, 1946 in Gainesville, Texas. After celebrating 33 years of marriage, Ernest preceded her in death on Feb. 28, 1980. Onetta was a homemaker who enjoyed playing cards and dominoes, canning, hunting for antiques and was a diehard OU football fan. She liked being outside gardening, tending to her flowers, cutting wood, and fishing. She hated grasshoppers and armadillos for the problems they caused in her garden and flower beds. Onetta was known for making great food, specifically her homemade biscuits. She was a loving caring woman always willing to help. Many things brought her joy and happiness, but the one thing she loved the most was spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
