Johnnie, who was known as Elzada all her younger life, was born to Johnnie Maron Bennett and Annie Ilene (Goolsby) Bennett in Marquez. She grew up and went to school in Groesbeck. She married John Earl Ogletree as a young lady and they lived in Groesbeck for a time and most of their twenty-five years together in the Alvardo and Keene area. Together they had six children. John passed away in 1964 and Johnnie (Elzada) worked at Eckhard Drug Warehouse in Garland to support the younger children still at home. Working there, she met and married Albert Seale on October 17, 1975 in her hometown of Groesbeck at the Courthouse. She became a licensed realtor and sold houses in that area until they retired. After Albert retired in 1998, they moved first to Lake Limestone, and later into Groesbeck. They enjoyed taking trips together, especially to the Grand Old Opry, and making garage sales. She enjoyed her yard and did her own yard work as long as she could. She insisted on living independently at home until moving to the Windsor in the last year. Johnnie was preceded in death by her parents; her first husband John Earl Ogletree and her second husband, Albert Seale in 2013; and three of her daughters: Carolyn, Dessie, and Annette. She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Dorothy and Jesse Blakeney of Fort Worth; son, Donny Ogletree of Decatur, Arkansas; son, Billy Ogletree; eleven grandchildren, including Valerie McDaniel and her husband David of Waco who take special care of her grandmother as the time came when she needed assistance; thirty- plus great grandchildren; and thirty-five great-great grandchildren; and nieces and nephews.
