Survivors include her daughter, Loretta Randolph Wright, and her husband, Winfred, of Oklahoma City; two brothers, Olie Junior Hale of Rush Springs, and Archie Hale of Abilene, Kansas; numerous nieces, nephews, and a multitude of longtime friends, most of whom she met during the 55 years in the car business and antique collecting, which was her passion.
