Helen Lafayne (Reville) Meeh (known to all as “Rusty”) of Texarkana, Texas (formerly of Heavener, Oklahoma) was born the only child on June 6, 1938 in Locksburg, Arkansas to Herman and Beaulah (Proctor) Reville and went to be with the Lord on September 16, 2018 in Texarkana, Texas at the age of 80.
She is survived by:
Several cousins who treasure her greatly including:
Donnie and Kathy Murphy of Texarkana, Arkansas
Two special cousins:
Robbie Reville and his wife Linda of Quinlan, Texas
Jimmy Dale McClendon and wife Bonna of Eagletown, Oklahoma
A cousin (who was like a sister), neighbor and who cared for Rusty until her trip home to be with the Lord:
Treasa Jackson of Texarkana, Texas
She was preceded in death by her parents, Herman and Beaulah (Proctor) Reville; and her husband, Jim Meeh.
Rusty was raised in Tulsa, where she and her mom ran a gift shop while her dad worked as an airplane mechanic.
In later years, she and her parents lived in Heavener, where Rusty taught art classes in her home and was a former member of the Faithbridge United Methodist Church in Heavener. She was in a bowling league, was a Girl Scout leader, loved to fish and garden, and designed and helped to build her last home in Heavener.
Rusty came to live in Texarkana (to be near her cousins in that area) and she lived her final 13 years there, when no other relatives were left in Oklahoma. Rusty became a member of the St. Luke’s Methodist Church in Texarkana, where she became a part of a Wednesday morning ladies’ domino group. She enjoyed live theater productions at the local college and Tuesday night Scottie’s steak night. Most of all she loved her Sooners and never missed a televised game of any sport they were playing.
