Funeral services for Sue Frances Mixon, 87, of Lexington were held Wednesday, December 23, 2020 at the Wilson-Little Funeral Home Chapel. Services were under the direction of the Wilson-Little Funeral Home in Purcell.
Mrs. Mixon passed away December 20, 2020, at her home in Lexington.
She was born September 6, 1933 in Lexington, Okla., to Kirk and Clara (Cruse) May. She attended school at Valley Grove School in the Corbett Community, graduating from Lexington High School in 1951.
She married her high school sweetheart, Delaine Mixon, June 17, 1951, who preceded her in death in 2001.
She was many things to many people. A wife, mother, sister, friend, sister in Christ, Sunday School teacher and prayer warrior. Her most cherished role was being a grandmother, and her grandchildren lovingly called her Meme Sue. Many others, though not related by blood, but love, also called her Meme Sue.
Meme Sue loved spending time with her grandkids babysitting, attending sporting events, dance recitals and traveling adventures. The highlight of her week was attending church and teaching her Sunday School Class. She will be dearly missed!
She was preceded in death by her grandson, Austin Beckham; her husband of 51 years, Delaine Mixon; her parents, Kirk May and Clara May Higbee and her sister and brother-in-law, Mary and R.C. Reed.
Sue is survived by her daughter, Debbie Cheek and husband, Larry, of Lexington, Okla.; son, Terry Mixon and wife, Kaona, of Wallville, Okla.; brother, Van Higbee of Norman, Okla.; grandchildren, Tennille Covey and husband, Justin, of Norman, Okla., Shane Mixon and wife, Felecia, of Lexington, Okla., Kristi Adkins of Cashion, Okla., Michelle Gosney and husband, Brian, of Fairview, Okla., Skye Uhlenhake and husband, James, of Blanchard, Okla., and Brooklyn Mixon of Pepperell, Mass.; great-grandchildren, Lexie Mixon, Blake Adkins, Khayl Johnson, Ty Mixon, Colt Mixon, Kruz Campbell, Cesily Covey, Laynie Gosney, Bailey Uhlenhake, Taylor Covey and Devyn Uhlenhake and a host of other family and friends.
