Mary Marie Trammel was born on Oct. 29, 1918, in Centralhoma, the daughter of James "Shorty" and Lucinda (Smith) Moore. She attended school at Pettit. On Dec. 9, 1940, she married the love of her life, Jack Trammel, in Tahlequah. This union was blessed with six sons and four daughters.
Mary spent her days lovingly caring for her family. Her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren were everything to her. She went to work first at Moodys School as a cook, then followed it with food service work at Davis Nursing Home and sewing at the "Sewing Factory."
When she wasn't working, she loved any time spent with her family camping, attending gospel singing, working in her garden raising vegetables and beautiful flowers, and sewing for her family and friends.
She was blessed with a wonderful sense of humor and was patient and kind, yet outgoing and determined.
A Christian by faith, she was a member of the Liberty Grace Chapel in Moodys. She read her Bible faithfully and showed her love to all she encountered.
The Lord called Mary home from her labors on Wednesday, Dec. 29, 2010, at Tahlequah City Hospital, where she was lovingly cared for to the end by her granddaughter, Myra Young, RN, and husband, Matt Young EMT-P. She was 92 years young.
Those who preceded her in death include her parents, her husband, Jack, in 1984, her son Tommy Leon in 1962, a grandson, Randy Trammel, a granddaughter, Polly Trammel, and a great-grandson, Dalton Trammel, as well as several brothers and sisters.
Those left to cherish her memory include her children, Homer Duane Trammel and wife, Patsy, of Tahlequah, Billy Jack Trammel and wife, Linda, Robert Trammel of the home in Moodys, Donald Wayne Trammel, Gerald Lee Trammel and wife, Ina, all of Moodys, Evelyn Dick and husband, Roy, of Boudinot, Norma Jean Ford and husband, Bob, of Moodys, Donna Sue Steinman and husband, Dennis, of Lawrence, Kan., and Mary Ella Sands of Tahlequah. Her two brothers and sister include J.D. Moore and wife, Alice, of Oriville, Calif, Billy Moore of Oregon, and Ruth Barton of Wichita, Kan.
Her legacy lives on in her 52 grandchildren, and great-grandchildren as numerous as the stars in the sky, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and two very special friends, Mary Elkins and Elma Watts.
