After graduation, LG entered the military and soon after returning home, married the love of his life, Billie Joy Fitts in 1948. LG devoted a lifetime of service to his community as County Commissioner until retirement. 
 
LG was a very laid back, kind, and compassionate individual. He never met a stranger and made sure to make you feel special if he saw you around town. LG was sure to enjoy himself no matter what he was doing. He was drawn to the outdoors where he spent much of his time fishing, hunting, or playing golf. Baseball was also a favorite pastime of his. 
 
LG was surrounded by a family filled with love. He is survived by his faithful wife of 68 years, Billie Joy; two sons, Ricky Allen and wife, Brenda, and Bradley Allen; one brother, R.S. Allen and wife, Sandra, one sister, Evelyn McLeroy; five grandchildren, Michael Allen, Kyle Allen and wife, Tisha, Jacob Allen, Amy Allen, Katie Norman and husband, Clayton; ten great grandchildren; and dearest family friends, Robin and Duncan Connell.  He is preceded in death by his parents, Larcus Green Allen, Sr. and Eva Frazier and sister Claudine Barrett.
 
The Allen family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to the staff at Garrison Nursing Home who so lovingly stood beside and served LG during his stay there until his passing. 
Pallbearers for Mr. Allen’s service are Kyle Allen, Jacob Allen, Bryan Stinnett, Clayton Norman, William Lum Edwards, and Kenny Smith.  The family is being served by Taylor Funeral Home in Timpson, Texas.

Joseph Olenik


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shelby County’s best “walker” Joseph Olenik, age 65 of Joaquin, passed away Thursday, March 2, 2017 in Joaquin as a result of an accident. His pastor, Rev. Paul Silvey stated, “Now he’s walking on streets of gold.”
 
Services will be 2:00 p.m., Sunday, March 12, 2017 at First Baptist Church in Joaquin with Bro. Paul Silvey & Bro. Joseph Rowe officiating, burial will follow at Joaquin Cemetery. Visitation will be Saturday, March 11, 2017 from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at Mangum Funeral Home.
 
Joseph or “Joey” was born March 14, 1951 in Lake Charles, LA to parents, Edward & Temple Rose (Bazer) Olenik, who precede him in death.
 
A birth accident with forceps left Joey mentally challenged and epileptic.  He attended public schools until the third grade; he then went to state schools and trade schools in Lake Charles, Leesville and Hammond.  He made and sold decorative pillows from state to state for five years with his best friend from Leesville School. Joseph then took a drafting class at age 21 and learned to draw blueprints of houses. This showed more autistic traits. Joseph, along with his mom and younger sister moved to Joaquin in 1970, where his mom’s family lived.  Joseph then moved to Shreveport where he ran his own lawn business for twenty years.  He also bought and paid for his small home. In 1999, brain surgery alleviated most of his seizures and his family convinced him to retire and move back to Joaquin. He had walked all over Shreveport with his lawn mowers, in spite of the seizures and many more adversities. Joseph did not believe in giving up or giving in. He also didn’t believe people should stop exercising~ so he began to walk all over Shelby County. Joseph was ornery to his “bossy” sisters, but he prayed for everyone and read his Bible every night.   His generous and compassionate spirit and sense of humor will be missed by his family and friends. Joseph was a member of First Baptist Church in Joaquin. 
 
A special thanks to his friends, Susie and Nathan and the crew at Subway in Joaquin, and DP and Nick and family at Executive Inn and Suites in Joaquin. They lived out this song to Joseph: “You’ve Got a Friend”.  Eternal gratitude is given to Joyce and Steve Cockrell, Rev. Paul Silvey, Jesse the ambulance driver and all the brave group that helped at the accident Thursday night. The family would not have made it through without each of you. He will be missed so very much by many.  He was loved and he loved people.  But as he often reminded his family of his favorite scripture “We can do all things through Christ which strengthens us”.
 
He is preceded in death by his parents, Edward & Temple Olenik. 
 
He is survived by:
3 Sisters:
Mitzie Duffy & husband, Dan of Arlington
Rosie Deskin of Joaquin
Lessie Olenik of Arlington
Nieces and Nephews:
Deborah Hayes & husband, Allan of Atlanta, GA
Brenda Brutsche & husband, Tony of Arlington

She is survived by her sons Guy Hatfield, II and wife Michelle of Anahuac and David Hatfield and wife Stacey of Hankamer; her daughter Melinda Wylie and husband James of Rye; her sister Eleanor Billingsley of Texas City; her 7 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren; and a host of other loving relatives and friends. Jo will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

Terry and Pam Bailey


 

 
Terry Glenn Bailey, 54, and Pamela Hitt Bailey, 57, of Center, Texas, passed away together in an accident on February 15, 2017. 
 
Visitation will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Friday, February 17, 2017, at First United Pentecostal Church of Center. Funeral service for the couple will be held at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, February 18, 2017, at the First United Pentecostal Church of Center with Bro. Andy Wilson officiating. Interment will follow Oaklawn Memorial Park in Center. 
 
Terry was born on March 13, 1962, in Center, Texas. He was a self-made man and rose to be one of East Texas’ most prolific entrepreneurs. 
 
Pam was born on August 26, 1959, and graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with a degree in business. After the couple married on September 27, 1980, she quietly became the firm foundation of their immediate and extended family. 
 
For 36 years together, Terry and Pam impacted their families and their community with their truly unique partnership which blended very different gifts. Although their tribe seems to encompass a thousand cousins, the Bailey’s thrived on togetherness and the joy of a close-knit family. That philosophy carried over into their businesses where partnerships often involved family members, but even those who were unrelated became indistinguishable from blood relations. Terry was larger than life and could not help but to inspire. Pam, marvelously drew no attention to herself, while almost invisibly making everything in their complicated lives actually work. Terry caused every man to measure himself. Pam on the other hand, made everyone feel as though they measured up. To her, status and stature were irrelevant. Pam had a servant’s heart and a genuine caring nature. She made everyone she came across feel worthwhile. Terry and Pam Bailey had a passion for putting family first and have now left an enormous group with great sadness and an even greater legacy to carry on. 
 
Their survivors include 
Daughter: Carmen Mackey and husband, Ryan 
 
Son: Dustin Bailey and wife, Ginny 
 
Grandchildren: 
Falon Mackey 
Ivy Mackey 
Trevor Bailey 
Taygan Bailey 
 
Mothers: 
Ann Hitt 
Charlotte Bailey 
 
Sisters: 
Katha Bush 
Vicki Tomlin and husband, Richard 
Treasa Donnan and husband, Jim 
 
Preceded in death by 
Pam’s Father: Charles “Slick” Hitt 
Terry’s Father: Millard Bailey 
Terry’s Brothers: Mitchell Bailey, Delane Bailey, Johnny Bailey 
 
Pallbearers will be James Butler, Dee Winston, Kevin Rash, Jinx Hutchins, Luke Garrett, Jeff Bailey and Rial Taylor. 
 
In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made online to The Bailey Family Foundation at www.baileyfamilyfoundation.com. 
 
The family of Dustin & Ginny Bailey and Carmen & Ryan Mackey wish to thank everyone for their prayers and continued support through this difficult time.
