Velma Oleta Lubke

September 11, 1925 ~ August 1, 2020 (age 94)


Velma Oleta Lubke, 94, passed away on August 1, 2020 at the Grandview Nursing Home.

Born in Clifton Texas on September 11, 1925, Oleta grew up in Clifton Texas, attended Clifton High School and received her  degree in Home Economics from North Texas  University.  When Oleta learned that her fiancé Herb Lubke was alive and a POW during World War II,  a comforting bible verse to her was Psalm 121: 1-2, "I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.  My help cometh from the Lord, which made heave and earth."  The family finds strength and comfort in this Bible verse today.  On August 31, 1946, Oleta was married to Herb Lubke. 

Beloved family who passed on before Oleta include, her loving husband of 68 years, Herbert Lubke;  oldest son, Fred Lubke; mother and father Prentice and Velma (Cunningham) Elder;  brother, Amos Elder and wife, Alta Lee Elder; brother-in-law, Herman Barrs, and sister Mary Elder Davis, brother, Murzell Lee Elder.

Oleta is survived by her sons, Kim (Debbie) Lubke, Glenn (Pamela) Lubke and daughter-in-law, Judy Lubke; grandchildren Nicole (Neal) Lucas, Nicholas Lubke, Ryan Lubke, Lisa Lubke, Brandon Lubke, Grant Lubke; and great-grandchild, Alexa Lucas; Sisters Betty Barrs and Dorothy Davis; and a number of nieces and nephews

Oleta and Herb Lubke were faithful, long-time members of the First Baptist Church in Grandview Texas.  Oleta served on the Johnson County Meals on Wheels for many years.

The family wishes to thank the Grandview Nursing Home staff for their support and care.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Grandview Nursing Home or Johnson County Meals on Wheels.

Due to increased concern over the spread of Covid-19, memorial service arrangements will be announced at a later date.
