Luster Odell (L.O.) Wooley, 90, of Vilonia, left this earth for his heavenly home on Feb. 24, 2011.
His final days and hours were spent surrounded by his family at his home.
He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Eva Mae Sublett Wooley; and children, Jerry Wooley and wife Jo Ellen of Vilonia, Jim Wooley and wife Judy of Vilonia, Judy Foster and husband Stan of Paragould, Johnny Wooley and wife Lynn of Vilonia and Jana Barnett and husband Lewis of Vilonia; 11 grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren; a brother, Clarence Wooley and wife Nina of Sherwood; sisters, Estelle Smith of North Little Rock and Audie Lee Sharp of Charleston; along with many nieces, nephews and relatives.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Roy Wooley and Lillie Wooley; and sisters, Lorean York and Elsie McComber.
With his passing, we remind others that his life was one to be celebrated. He led by example and walked in faith. He taught us valuable life lessons but most importantly about Jesus Christ. Although, we will miss him dearly, we can look forward to a glad reunion day. We were blessed to have him as our daddy and our papaw. He was a charter member of Belmont Chapel where he enjoyed the worship, gospel singing, and fellowship dinners (especially the desserts). He was selfless, hardworking and a retired farmer. He always showed compassion to those in need. He loved the Arkansas Cattleman’s Association where he was recognized numerous times as an outstanding member at state and county levels in their annual membership drive. He loved his wife, cherished his grandchildren and treasured all of his friends and family. He will be greatly missed and fondly remembered for his faithfulness, integrity and sense of humor.
Visitation will be 6-8 p.m. today at Roller-McNutt Funeral Home, 501-327-7727.
