  1. My condolences to the Carter and Lyons family. I really appreciated the way Reatha was always smiling and happy to see family. She always made me and my family feel loved and welcomed. She was a great lady and great person to be around. Good luck to all and best wishes to all those in the family during this time. Love Dean & Val

    Reatha was instrumental in introducing my wife’s family to the Church when my wife was a child. If it wasn’t for her my life would be very different. I always enjoyed spending time with Reatha and hearing her stories. My wife’s family (Andy and Betty Jack) also have lots of stories about her and Al. We’ll all miss her.

  4. I have just discovered that Reatha has passed away. Pam and I want to offer our condolences to the family.
    I have just started using some of Retha’s genealogy work and I am finding it very helpful.
