Oletha Oxley
    Oletha "Lee" E. Oxley, 75, of  Nampa, and formerly of Melba, died Tuesday, Oct. 6, 1992, at a Nampa care center.  Graveside funeral services will be conducted at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 10, 1992, at the Melba Cemetery.  Pastor George Baker of the Seven Seas Christian Outreach Center, Nampa, will officiate.  Friends are asked to meet at the cemetery.  Services are under the direction of the Alsip Funeral Chapel, Nampa.
    Lee Oxley was born August 17, 1917, at Sapulpa, Oklahoma, to George and Alleyne Anderson, the oldest daughter of 12 children.  During the depression era, the Anderson family moved several times, finally settling in Southern California.  In 1942, Lee married Henry "Slim" Minga.  Each brought children from previous marriages to this union, so they were his, hers and ours with the three children they had together.  Slim and Lee moved to Idaho in 1953 and Lee went back to school to earn her nursing license of which she was very proud.  In 1964 Slim and Lee were divorced.  Lee moved to California where she met and married Clovis Oxley who was very devoted to her.  They moved to Yoncolla, Oregon, where they lived until his death in 1990, at which time she moved back to Nampa to be close to her children.  Lee was very outgoing, she never knew a stranger.  Lee's always ready smile and twinkle in her eyes will be missed by everyone who knew her.
    Lee is survived by her five children, Don Wallen, Sacramento, CA, Roy Wallen, Rocklin, CA, Marty Nelson, Melba, ID, Bob Minga, Boise ID, and George Minga, Nampa, ID; a number of grandchildren, great-grandchildren; great-great-grandchildren; and seven brothers and sisters.
    She was preceded in death by her parents, three brothers, three grandchildren, one of which was our very special Sherry Nelson, Melba, ID.
    Friends may call at the Alsip Funeral Chapel today until 9 p.m. and on Friday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
    The family suggests memorials to the Melba Quick Response Unit, P.O. Box 189, Melba, ID 83641; or flowers may be sent.
