On January 15, 2013, Elva became the first of the last four children to pass away. She was the 4th of all 8 children to pass. Louis being the first in 1936, Lloyd was the second to pass in 1997 and Luis Burl after Lloyd. Not sure of the date yet.
The surviving children, the oldest sister Edna and her last three younger surviving sisters: Hazel, Donna and Roberta are all that are left of the Owens Children. We, the grandchildren of Leonard and Nellie work together gathering information to share with our children. Aunt Bobby found this picture not realizing who all was in the picture. She shared this with her surviving sisters.
