Olene was born July 20, 1925 in Seale, Texas to Roman Leonard and Addie Lee Phillips Bumpurs. Her mother passed away when she was five years old and her father, having never remarried, raised her alone. She was a graduate of Franklin High School and received a degree from a Business College. The Seale Community had been her home for her entire life.
Olene married her loving husband, James Bernice Reagan, and they were blessed with two sons, Charles and Gary. She was a loving wife and mother who devoted her life to caring for her husband and sons. Family was of the utmost importance to her. She was a wonderful homemaker, a great cook (cooked three meals a day) and kept the cleanest house. Olene was affectionately known by her nieces and nephews as “E.”
Olene had an exceptionally wonderful personality, always had sweet things to say about, or to, everyone and never a bad word about anyone. She was treasurer of the Wedgeman Cemetery for over 50 years. When she accepted this position, there was only $3.78 in their account, however, she was instrumental in building it into a nice fund during her tenure. Olene was a member of the Church of Christ.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; and two brothers, Edward and Horace Bumpurs.
Olene is survived by her loving sons, Charles L. Reagan and wife, Barbara Jo of Lake Limestone and Gary Lynn Reagan of Seale.
Olene’s family would like to express their deepest appreciation to caregivers, Shelbie, Jessica and Maggie and Hospice nurses, Hollie, Dannie, and Christie.
Blair-Stubbs Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.
