Linda Sue( Butler) Lower was born at St. John's Hospital in Tulsa on July 22, 1948, to Mary Sue Ann Harvey. She was raised and cared for by her grandparents Nick and Susie Thornton of Westville, along with her sister, Celeste Thornton.
She attended elementary school at Baron School, with the rest of her education completed at Westville Public School. Some of her academic achievements were completing and licensing as a cosmetologist from Admiral Beauty School, attending Okmulgee Tech and graduating with an associate degree from Claremore Community College in accounting and business. She was a proud member of the Cherokee and Osage Nations.
She went home to her Lord and Savior at Tulsa Regional Hospital on Saturday, May 6, 2006, after a long illness. She was loved and cared for in her final days by her sister and brother-in-law, Celeste and Terry Tillery. Also, in her final days and nights, her cousins and childhood friends, Rebecca Whitmire Worthington, Eloise Whitmire and Mamie Whitmire Thompson, rarely left her side.
She is preceded in death by her beloved grandparents, Nick and Susie Thornton; and her step-father, Henry Hanson.
She is survived by her husband Charles F. Lower of Claremore; her mother and constant companion, Mary Sue Ann Harvey-Hanson; one sister and brother-in-law, Celeste Thornton Tillery and Terry A. Tillery; and two nephews, Michael David Tillery of Vinita and Jason B. Tillery of Tulsa.
She left some special friends and relatives who demonstrated unconditional love: Barbara and Bob Luellen, Tina Doan, Jerry Linn, Rita Ware, Tony and Terry Heinegan and her beloved dogs.
Those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider their favorite church or charities.
Prayers are also requested for her family and friends, especially her mother, who will be residing at Wood Manor Nursing Home when released from Claremore Indian Hospital, and her husband Charles of Claremore.
