Nana filled her life with her family and her animal friends. She was a lover of animals. Animals have a way of finding the people who need them, and filling an emptiness that most are not aware of. Nana loved all animals! It seemed all the dogs and cats that needed love, found their way to her. One of her best friends while staying at the nursing home was Charlie. Charlie was a cat that needed Nana, and Nana needed him. Sometimes we felt like she loved her furry friends more than us, but if you ever saw her with her grandchildren you would know that wasn’t true. She loved her children both big and small. Nana made lots of friends along her journey and I know she will miss you all.


Funeral services will be 11:00 am Tuesday, September 11, 2018 at Mallory-Martin Funeral Home Chapel in Spiro, Oklahoma with Pastor Gary T. Kilgore officiating.


Burial will follow at New Hope Cemetery in Spiro, Oklahoma under the direction of Mallory-Martin Funeral Home in Spiro, Oklahoma.


Pallbearers will be; Elliott West, Jimbo Hammontree, Danny Blevins, Jason Blevins, Claude Bryant, and Gary Don Masterson. Honorary Pallbearers will be; Dale Smith, Charles Masterson, Glen Miller, Jeff Masterson, and Steve Woods.
