Olene O. Seitz, 89, passed away peacefully and joined her Lord and Savior and loved ones in Heaven on Tuesday, July 2. Services were held last Saturday at Pecan Grove Funeral Home in Robinson, Texas. Burial followed later that day Saturday at the Knox City Cemetery.
Olene was born Dec. 6, 1929, in Knox City to Finnice and Othella Myrick Walker.

She was an active member of the First Baptist Church in Dalhart.
