Obit from the Norman Transcript, September 15, 1940:

Pioneer County Woman Dies

Mrs. Susannah Mary Faughn, 71 years old, Oklahoma City and former Cleveland county resident, died at her home in Oklahoma City Friday.

Mrs. Faughn was one of the comparatively few women who staked claims after the run of 1889. She did not make the run because she was only 20 years old. But in 1890 she came from Springfield, Mo., to stake a claim at Franklin, northwest of Norman.

For four years she proved up her claim alone and then was married to E. R. Tileson, who died in 1911. Before his death, the family moved in 1900 to six miles east of Moore.

Survivors include three daughters including Mrs. Rena Price, Moore, and Mrs. Flossie Hetherington and Mrs. Ruby Graham, both of Oklahoma City.

Email sent to me from Patti Price Lynn, descendant of Susannah Mary Wade:

Susannah Wade was quite a character, I understand. Susannah and Dick (this is what Susannah called him, Enoch Richard Tileson) met immediately after the Oklahoma Run. I remember my grandmother talking about an aunt who road a spotted pony in the land run. The Tileson's and the Wade's properties were close to each other and this is how they met. You can see from the dates of birth that Dick Tileson was 15 years Susannah's senior. Dick Tileson was killed when my grandmother, Rena Leona Tileson was ten years old. I think she told me he was ran over by a wagon wheel, but I would have to check on that. Therefore, that left her alone with three girls, Rena, Flossie & Ruby. However, from what I have been told she made quite a bit if money on her own. She owned alot of rental property in Oklahoma City, and I understand during the oil boom (the first one) she would sneak shacks onto property at night and swear they were her homestead. This would force the oil companies to pay more money for surface rights. After all she was a poor, helpless widow woman with three children, and the judge seemed to see things her way. I don't know whether that is true or not, but she did have money and rental property, which were left to her three daughters. My father has told me that he would go get all kinds of different paint and mix it together and paint rental properties for his grandmother. Susannah didn't seem to care, as long as the houses were painted. Oddly enough all of these women were very self reliant, Susannah and her three daughters. Susannah later married a widower by the name of John Fawn (sp). I have seen a picture of this gentleman and he was very good looking. Unfortunately, he told one of Suannah's friends that married her for her money, and that day she filed for divorce and he got nothing. Again, very strong, self-reliant women. I do have one funny story about Susannah. One day a school teacher spanked one of her girls with a switch. This whipping caused blisters to surface on the child's legs. So, Susannah went to the school and asked the teacher if she had whipped her child and the reason for it. Apparently, the reason wasn't good enough. Susannah took a switch and beat the teacher with it to show her how it felt. Well, Susannah had to go to court and the judge fined her an outrageous fine, something like $50 (I really don't know, but it was alot for back then). The judge asked Susannah if she had anything she would like to say before he pronounced sentence. Susannah said, "yes. If I had known I was going to have to pay a $50 fine, I would have hit her twice as hard." What a woman!

Notes for Victor Crawford Forister, Jr.:
Poem written by Ruby Jo Gilley to her daughter, Jimmy Gilley Forister, when she found out Jimmy and Victor, Sr. were going to have a baby after 18 years of marriage.

                     Baby's Version

               Hello Mom and Dad
               I'm your little Boy.
               God sent me here
               to live with you
               And be your pride and joy.

              So many years you prayed for me,
               Never losing faith or love,
               So one day, God remembered
               And in a calm voice, He said,
               "Thy will be done,
               And for thy love and faith in Me,
               Ye shall have a son."
              So Mother Dear, when you and Dad
               Thank God for mr each day,
               Tell Him, I thank Him too
               For a nice Mom and Dad like you.

Eulogy written by Mary Wade Hayes with help from everyone:

IN HONOR OF VICTOR FORISTER       

Victor became part of our family on January 28, 1983, when he married our sister Cathy. Since he was an only child, our large family of seven girls -- complete with brothers-in-law and many children -- was quite an experience for him...just as it was for all the other brothers-in-law. Vic loved it -- and jumped right in.

As a young man Victor loved and played all different sports, especially golf and skiing. But as his myotonic dystrophy progressed, ne became a great spectator...and everyone who knew Vic knew he loved OU football. He was a #1 fan who rarely missed a game.

One thing Vic loved to play was dominos. He could go over to Mother and Woody's and enjoy a good game... and he did... lots of times. Or occasionally he liked Cathy to fix dinner and invite them to come to their house to play. He and Woody loved dominos.

Vic was basically a quiet person, but once you got to know him -- he loved conversation. Recently he was eagerly learning about computers, and he liked to share with us what he knew.

Chris reminded us about the way Vic was fascinated with the weather. They both agreed Victor should have been a meteorologist --- or maybe a storm-chaser! When the beep...beep...beep...came on the television, he had the National Weather Service programmed on speed-dial so he could keep up with severe weather in our area! Chris loved hearing Vic's excitement and enthusiasm as he kept everyone posted with all the details. Chris was 12 when Victor and Cathy married, and they became not only father - son...but also good friends.

With their combined family, Vic now had 2 cute daughters: Marla and Lori. As a little girl, Marla was the apple of her daddy's eye. She really loved the swimming pool, and Vic spent hours in their pool --- first teaching Marla to swim -- and then letting her jump in to him, time after time...spalsh after splash! Their time together was very special to Victor.

When Lori recently married Joe, Vis was so excited about the wedding! He loved festivities and was involved in all the planning, the decorating, and the celebration! Although his health had been declining, his constant desire was to be able to join the fun at Lori's wedding. Thankfully, Lori made it special for Victor and it was obvious he enjoyed every minute...especially their wedding dance together!

During the wedding activities -- as with many others -- Vic's friend Joel helped him handle some of the physical challenges so he could reserve his energy. Recently they had attended the big Norman Invasion, the Pre-Season NFL game at OU. Independence was important to Victor, and we all tried to help him maintain as much as possible.

Vic was like a country boy living in the city! He and Lori shared a special bond because of their mutual love of animals. Special memories were built just traipsing out in the fields -- they both loved the outdoors...they even enjoyed just going to the live-stock auctions. So..we can't forget man's best friend: Vic's dog: Rocky and Sassy (a rotwiller and a snouzer) were truly 2 of his best friends. Vic loved his dogs...and they loved him, and were always near him -- even to the end.

Ephesians 6:2 says "Honor thy father and mother which is the first commandment with promise, that it may be well with thee."

It must have been well with Victor. He loved and honored his parents, and was deeply saddened when his father died. He and his mother, Jimmie, had a special relationship and shared many mutual interests. Jimmie always knew Victor was there for her, especially when she needed him to take her on trips to Texas --- a favorite state with lots of family they both enjoyed. They both loved antiques, and they especially loved to visit their peaceful place at Wimberly. Enjoying rest and relaxation, Victor really appreciated the natural setting and the opportunity to watch and feed the many deer. Victor and Jimmie traveled many miles together, which must have been special times for a mother and her son. Honor your mother. Victor honored his mother.

And Cathy. How Victor loved you Cathy! Just talking about you still made his eyes light up! He always told us: "all the girls are pretty --- but Cathy is the prettiest of all!" We'd tease and harass him, but we were glad he thought that!

He thought you were the best cook, too Cathy! And we all know he enjoyed "good food!" He was convinced you should market your famous lasagna!

He was totally impressed with your talents. Your floral arrangements always had your special touch! And he always said you could make anything look beautiful ---- remember how he would say no one wanted to open presents you wrapped because they were wrapped so beautifully!

And, speaking of presents: Vic delighted in having the family Christmas party at his and Cathy's home. He loved helping decorate every inch of the house. He loved the hustle and bustle of kids all around! Remember how he loved lots...and lots...and lots...of lights on the tree ---- and how he could sit for hours and watch them twinkle!

Exchanging gifts for the names we had drawn was always fun --- he was so anxious to see who had his name! And he joined right in when we all sang Christmas songs! In fact, we had to depend on Vic to lead us sometimes ---- he was always the "only" one who could remember allthe words and the order of "The Twelve Days of Christmas!" And when Vic led our Christmas blessing, he sincerely thanked God for all his family.

Victor taught Cathy to slow down and appreciate life. And Cathy taught Victor to love people and give of himself. Their home was always open, as were their hearts. Together they have helped many people. We especially remember when they took in a young single mom with 5 little children. Vic quickly became a self-appointed foster-father..and the children adored him. Whether they had a little or a lot, Cathy and Victor were willing to share.

When we talked about heaven, we could appreciate Victor's everlasting love for you, Cathy, when he reminded you that he definitely wanted you to be in "his" mansion.

Even with his declining health, his faith in God...and his faith in Cathy...never wavered. For richer -- for poorer -- In sickness and in health... Through it all --- Victor loved Cathy!

We will miss Vic. He was an important part of our family and our lives. We loved Victor Forister.

From all the "Girls"

Delivered by Jequita Faye Wade Raffety
