Conway, AR, 1928 - 2022

Helen Jewel Sellers Olles, 93, of Conway, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, September 18, 2022. She was born October 29, 1928, in Conway to the late James Chester Sellers and the late Verna Mae (Johnston) Sellers. She was preceded in death by her husband of 42 years, Paul Olles.
Mrs. Olles was raised and lived most of her life in the Pickles Gap community north of Conway.

She worked for International Shoe Company and Moore's Butane Company for many years as well as for her husband's dump trucking company. She was known for being an excellent cook, especially for her homemade rolls, and for having sweet tea ready for anyone who stopped by to visit. Mrs. Olles had a wonderful sense of humor and enjoyed spending time with her family. She particularly enjoyed the cousin's lunches that she and her sister would host.
She is survived by one sister, Patsy Fuller of Little Rock, Ark.; one nephew, David (Lisa) Murdock of Conway, Ark.; two nieces, Anita (Kevin) Justice of Eastman, Ga., and Michelle (Chuck) Rickard of Little Rock, Ark.; one great-nephew, Justin (Jhierney) Murdock of Alexandria, Va.; three great-nieces, Joy Murdock of Conway, Ark., Allison Rickard of Little Rock, Ark., and Kemper Grace Justice of Eastman, Ga.
