Magnolia Ruff Clark

Mrs. Magnolia Ruff Clark ran a victorious race always enduring with charm and grace. Magnolis was the eighth child of 10 siblings. All are deceased except one sister, the baby girl, Mabel Porter, of Washington, D.C.

Magnolia was born Dec. 24, 1911 to Clem and Ella Tenesee Ruff. Magnolia attended school at Adam Hill near Brown Creek, also Slick School, in Slick.

She did a lot of traveling.

She later met Fred Clark in Las Vegas and they got married. They moved back to Sapulpa with her son Curtis Clark. They lived in Sapulpa many years, and she lost her husband a few years ago.

She loved her flowers and pets, and had very good luck with trees and flowers. Magnolia found rest beyond the river Tuesday morning Feb. 22, 2005.

She was preceded in death by her parents and eight siblings C.D., Ophelia, Virginia, Jessie Mae, C.M., Laura, Lucille and Beaulah.

Remaining to wait on the Lord are one son Curtis Clark and his wife Rhonda Potter; one daughter Michelle Clark; grandchildren Jeweldean Goodman, Curtis Clark Jr., and Caleb Clark; one sister Mabel Porter, of Washington, D.C. and lots of nieces, nephews and cousins.

God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be, so he put his arms around you and whispered "come to me."

With tearful eye we watched and saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, we couldn't make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating hard, working hands at reast. God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best.

The years will wipe out many things but this they wipe out never. The precious memories of the happy days when we're all together.

Jimmie Kathrynn Clayton

Jimmie Kathrynn Clayton went to be with our heavenly Lord on March 13, 2005. She was born Aug. 11, 1928 in Lonewolf.

She was preceded in death by her parents, a brother and a sister. She is survived by her husband of 59 years; three children; five grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; four brothers; three sisters and many more family and friends.

She met the love of her life, Jimmie Clayton, at the age of 17 in Pawnee. They remained best friends, soul mates and the love of each other's lives for the next 59 years. They had three children: Linda and Paul Farris, of Sapulpa, Patricia and Ron Morgan, of Sapulpa, and Mike and Teresa Clayton, of Bixby.

She loved all of her grandchildren dearly and was an important part of their daily lives. They include: Danny and Sherri Dunbar, of Tulsa; Jeff and Vanessa Kusler, of Broken Arrow; Stefanie and Mark Gilbert, of Sapulpa; Kimberly Kulser, of Tulsa; and Boudey Clayton, of Sapulpa.

She was happiest when she could spend time with any of her seven great-grandchildren and she was proud of each one's accomplishments and activities.

Jimmie was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was our foundation, and her love meant more to us than anyone will know. She was always ready to go fishing and she could always out fish Papa. She was always eager to help a friend or relative with whatever life brought, and usually had the wisest answers and the largest shoulder to lean on. She lived her life to the fullest and never missed a chance to have a family get together full of food, fun and an occasional game of cards. She meant the world to us all, and we will miss her so much.

We know you are with your family and friends now before God, but we will think of you every day and until we meet again. We love you and will miss you dearly.

Services will be at 2 p.m. Wednesday, March 16, 2005 at the Nazarene Church Sapulpa. Arrangements are through Smith Funeral Home.
