She was a member of Liberty Community Church for over 65 years and was past secretary and treasurer for a number of years.

      Oshel was preceded in death by her first husband, Denver C. Carney, and her second husband, Everette R. Lee. She was also preceded in death by three children, Loren Carney, Eugene Carney and an infant daughter, and brothers, Estil Brotherton and Kenneth Brotherton.

      She is survived by a son, E. Lee Carney and wife, Jean, of Liberty; daughter-in-law, Wanda Carney of Teays Valley; four grandchildren, Greg Carney and wife, Lori, of Liberty, Darin Carney of Cross Lanes, John Carney and wife, Tasha, of Charleston and Joey Carney and Cathy of North Carolina; six great-grandchildren, Whitney Carney, Blake Carney, Cameron Carney, Kaitlyn Carney, Josh Carney and Hanna Carney; sisters-in-law, Peggy Brotherton and Hevalene Lovejoy; and special cousins, Jean Fisher and Betty Carney.

      The family would like to thank Hospice caregivers, Hollie, Melinda and Monica, and special thanks to Phyllis Starcher for her help the past year.
