Posted by Ann Weber
BARTLESVILLE, WASHINGTON CO, OK
On February 6, 2017 our Matriarch, Barbara
Sandusky Curtis Booher, was gloriously welcomed
into the arms of her Savior.
Barbara Lenora Sandusky was born March 14, 1923
in Little Rock AR. She was a two-time Girls City
Tennis Champion before graduating from Little
Rock Central High School. She was elected the
state's Rodeo Queen and thus represented
Arkansas at the dedication of the Will Rogers
Coliseum in Ft. Worth TX.
Upon marrying rodeo champion Eddie Curtis, she
moved to El Reno OK and then to Nowata OK. Two
years after the tragic death of her husband,
Barbara was blessed to marry Ernest "Ernie"
Booher of Dallas TX. The newlyweds soon built a
picturesque home on a ranch southeast of
Bartlesville OK where she and Ernie enjoyed
raising quarter horses, and where six
generations of family have convened to this day.
For 55 years she was the owner and CEO of
Barbara's Beauty Salon and Dress Shop in
Bartlesville, under a variety of iterations
throughout the years. Her professional
preeminence was recognized as a two-time winner
of the Oklahoma State Hair-styling Championship.
Barbara employed hundreds of hairdressers and
served thousands of loyal customers who were
drawn to the charisma and vitality of this
petite, savvy community leader and
Always aware of her leadership example, Barbara
had an uncommon work ethic - never missing a day
of work due to sickness or injury until her
retirement in her mid-80s. Not even a broken
humerus could keep her away from serving her
Barbara loved her Lord Jesus, her family, her
customers, her horses, the Arkansas Razorbacks
and the Dallas Cowboys. She was generous,
judicious and inspirational. Her grace,
benevolence, leadership and extraordinary
cooking skills will be missed by many.

Sandusky and Nora Pate Sandusky, brother
Theodore "Buddy" Sandusky Jr., sister Sue
Sandusky Dame, and first husband Eddie Curtis.
