She married Bernard Myles on January 3, 1983.  They were married 39 years. Onalee enjoyed traveling, especially her frequent visits to Florida.  She adored her family.  Her grandchildren and great-grandson were her greatest joy.  Onalee had a very close group of friends.  They had many adventures and great times together.  She was an unforgettable lady and will be missed by so many.
