Born July 27, 1954, in Coalgate, OK, Reta was a bright, beautiful, vibrant young girl. The Hogue family moved to Sunray around 1956. Reta loved baseball as a child. Despite a head injury that rendered her handicapped in 1965, Reta completed school in Sunray up to the 8th grade. Reta was then home schooled and graduated with her diploma in 1973.
Reta absolutely loved to read. She always had a book by her side. Reta volunteered at the school and at the library to read story time. Reta enjoyed all literature but especially enjoyed poems. She wrote several poems and was always willing to read you one. She was proud to have her poems published. More than she loved poems, she loved chocolate. We all got the phone call to bring her M & Ms! Reta had a smile that would light up a room. She loved to socialize and sit and chat for hours.
Reta was a member of the Sunray Baptist Church ands now is home where she has always dreamed of. She loved God and always rejoiced in His name.
