Susie Marie Johnson Dodge
1915 - 2009

Susie Marie Johnson Dodge died at St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa on Thursday, March 19, 2009.
Susie Marie Johnson Dodge was born March 16, 1915, to Hope Bell Devore Johnson and Charles E. Johnson on a farm Southwest of Tonkawa and raised by Charlie and Eva Gulick in Tonkawa. She is preceded in death by Frank, her husband of 70 years, and eight brothers and sisters, with one remaining sister, Ann, living in Olahoma City. She is survived by one son, Clinton Dodge and wife Debi of Albuquerque, N.M.; one daughter, Linda Kester and husband Larry of Tulsa; three grandsons, Robin and Brad Kester of Tulsa; and Brian and wife Megan Kester with great-granddaughter Hannah, of Arlington, Texas.
Susie and Frank were farmers, raising their two children on the family farm four miles east of Lamont. She loved the farm, working in the flower beds, raising vegetables and supporting all the farm activities. She was active in the Methodist Church teaching Sunday School, participating in United Methodist Women and supporting church, community and school activities.
They retired from farming in 1984 and moved to Tonkawa, where she resided until Frank's death in 2008 when she moved to Tulsa to be closer to her daughter and grandsons.
Susie enjoyed travel and was "ready to go" if the opportunity arose, visiting numerous countries around the world, building scrapbooks and other keepsakes of her adventures. She loved the ocean and looked forward to visiting south Texas at Padre Island during the winter.
She was a avid supporter of family, organizing a Devore/Johnson annual reunion attended by hundreds of her siblings, cousins, nephews, nieces and other hangers-on.
A celebration of Susie's life will be held at 2 p.m. Monday, March 23, 2009, at the Tonkawa First United Methodist Church, with interment to follow in the Tonkawa IOOF Cemetery. Arrangements have been trusted to the care of Anderson Funeral Home of Tonkawa. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Tonkawa First United Methodist Church Memorial Fund in care of Anderson Funeral Home; PO Box 337; Tonkawa, OK 74653. The family will receive friends at the funeral home from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday afternoon.
