On June 3, 2006, Oleta (Tate) Atteberry, born December 24, 1910, passed away peacefully at the age of 95 in the Springfield home of her daughter and son-in-law. She continually spoke of and longed to be with those who preceded her in death: her parents, Walter and Rosa Tate; brother, Ernest Tate; sister, Gertrude Barr; husband, Ross Atteberry; and her beloved grandson, Scott Matthews. She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Bill and Onari Bowler; two step grandsons and their wives, Blair and Jennifer Bowler , Todd and Chere Bowler; and six step great-grandchildren, Sabrina, Destinee, Blake, Brittanee and Avery, all of Springfield. All gave her such great joy, and helped fill a void in her life. After growing up and graduating from high school in Seymour, Mo., in 1928, she attended State Teachers College in Springfield and spent her first year teaching at Mt. Dale, Mo. Upon returning to Springfield, she helped start a kindergarten at South Street Christian Church where she taught for 13 years. From then until her retirement, she substituted in almost every grade in every school for the Springfield Public Schools. To this day, her family continues to hear from her former teachers, principals, parents and students who express their appreciation and thanks for her guidance and dedication to children and education. Always the pillar, Oleta managed to teach, maintain her home, and willingly provide care to her father with Parkinson's, her brother with heart disease, her sister who was a double-amputee, her sister-in-law with cancer, and Ross who battled lung and brain cancer. Thanks to family and friends for their encouragement and support. We extend special thanks to everyone at South Street Christian Church, HOSPICE, Home Instead, Home Sweet Home Care, Millie Weddington, Retha Treece, Connie Glessner, Pat Ward, Cecil Douglas, Dr. Michael Scott, Shari, and the staff at Whiteside Internal Medicine, and to God for giving the family and caregivers the mental and physical strength to care for her during her time of need. Ever faithful to her Church, family and friends, she will be missed, but she is where she wants to be. What a joyous reunion it had to be! Services will be at 1 p.m. Tuesday, June 6, 2006, at South Street Christian Church under the care of GormanScharpf Brentwood Chapel. Burial will be in Hazelwood Cemetery. Visitation will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday, June 5, 2006, in the funeral home. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Scott Matthews Memorial Fund through the Springfield Public Schools Foundation Office at 940 N. Jefferson, 65802.
