A graveside service for Nettie Copenhaver was 10 a.m. Wednesday, August 10, 2016. Burial was in Good Hope Cemetery, near Carmen, under the direction of Wentworth Mortuary, LLC.
Nettie Lorraine Copenhaver, 97, was born Sept. 8, 1918, in Bend, Ore., to Oscar and Zelma Ream Wilson and passed away August 8, 2016. She was the third of five children. Soon after birth, she moved to Los Angeles, Calif. and later moved to Oklahoma with her family, as a young girl. She settled in the Woods County area and has been here ever since.
Nettie was a strong hardworking woman. She milked many cows and raised many chickens and turkeys, while also raising her children. Cooking was always a passion of Nettie's. She was a cook at the Carmen and Carmen-Dacoma Schools. In 1972, she opened her own business, Nettie's Restaurant, in Carmen. The café was open for 36 years, six days a week, and was well known for its fried chicken. Although the café kept Nettie busy, she managed to find time in the spring and summer to tend to a large vegetable garden and her fruit trees. Nettie was an avid gardener and had a passion for roses and had several varieties in her yard. She also loved to watch and feed the birds.
Nettie is survived by four children, Elizabeth Schlarb and family; Terry Copenhaver and family; Larry Copenhaver, his wife, Lisa, and family; Penny Bridal and husband, Steve; her granddaughter, Jessica Nickels and husband, Jamie, and their daughters, Madison and Bailey; other family members and many friends.
