    I am sorry about the loss of your mom, Ruby Pearl. She will be added to my prayer list.
    You do not know me…I am the daughter of Iley and JoElla Oxley your grandmother Annie’s brother. My cousin, Elizabeth Oxley Geortz, daughter of Monroe and Olivette Oxley, another brother of your grandmother, Is doing research on some of the Oxley family. This is how I came across your mother’s obituary.
