Alleta, will be sincerely missed. She had been on my heart for several months when I heard of her passing. I know she welcomed God into her life and I look forward to seeing her again in heaven. I shared numerous fond memories with her from when we both attended WB Ray HS. I can't remember the last reunion I was able to attend but Alleta and I spend hours talking and catching up. It was a very precious time of remembrance. I will miss you my friend and sister until we see each other again.

Aleta was such a good, fun person in high school. At our 50th reunion, she was still just as beautiful as I remembered and had so many accomplishments to her credit. RIP, Aleta.

I am so shocked and saddened to hear of Alleta’s death. I had sent birthday greetings and not heard from her but had no idea there were problems. I send my prayers to all her family. She was a big part of my growing up in Corpus Christi 😢💐🤗❤️
