Joellen LeMay Thomas was born in Kiowa, Oklahoma, on August 1, 1935, and left us on July 14, 2021. Joellen’s greatest love was her family and she was very proud to be called Nanny. Joellen was employed by the J.G. Boswell Company as a cook, and later manager of the El Rico Cafeteria before her retirement in 1990. Many remember her for her daily walks around the high school.
Joellen is preceded in death by her husband, Lexie Carl Thomas; her daughter, Christy Lynn Fowler; her parents, Christopher Columbus LeMay and Joyce Ellen LeMay; and her brothers and their wives, William Henry and Mercy LeMay, Paul Buford LeMay, and Kenneth and Susie LeMay.
Joellen is survived by her daughter, Kathy Thomas; her grandchildren, Amy Fowler Villegas, Kelly Fowler, Maxwell Harris, and Devin Harris; and her great grandchildren, Joseph, Jessika, Vanessa, Jacob and Kayli Villegas, and Jamie Lopez.
