(permission granted)

Cremation arrangements were under the direction of the Stumpff Funeral Home & Crematory. Friends Cordelia (Cordy) Dennis Liggett, 88, died suddenly early Tuesday, November 24, 2015, in Bartlesville, Oklahoma.

Born February 28, 1927, in Anthony, Kansas, to Charlotte Eugenia Smith Dennis and Paul Henry Dennis, she was one of eight children. After graduating from Wellington High School, she obtained her degree from El Dorado Junior College. She married James Edgar Liggett, Sr., who preceded her in death. Together, they had six children: James Edgar Liggett, Jr., Janet Leigh Casas, Ann Elizabeth Hoffman, Ted Anthony Liggett, Lawrence Alan Liggett, and Cynthia Kay Gebhart. She had eleven grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. After devoting her life to lovingly raising her children, she turned her nurturing attention to caring for her larger community. In 1997, she received the Jim Gillie Outstanding Citizen Award, which was only one of the many times her contributions were recognized. She tutored children at Kane Elementary, served as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), and helped low-income people through Churches United for Community Concern (CONCERN), on which she also served as a member of the board. She volunteered at the Agape Mission and the Child Learning Center for years. Her greatest involvement was in the life of St. Luke's Episcopal Church, where she gave of herself for more than 40 years through the Lunch Stop, the Paper Guild, the Bereavement Committee, ECW and Rummage Sale crews. She was proud to complete the Episcopal Education for Ministry program in 1984. Her passions included attending live performances of every variety, travel, reading, progressive politics and championing the rights of the disenfranchised. She was an engaged and joyful participant in community life. Cordy will be deeply missed by the many people whose lives she touched. Her infectious smile lightened the lives of all she met.

Services will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, November 28, 2015, at St. Luke's Episcopal Church, 210 E. 9th Street, Bartlesville, Oklahoma, 74003.
