Sam was born on October 12, 1940 to Jonas Wade and Billie Mae Sherwood Wade in Talihina, Oklahoma. He had been a Vocational Agriculture Instructor until buying a farm in 1971. He was a member of the Mulhall-Orlando Lions Club and he served on the Rural Water Board. He worked at Charles Machine Works, Inc. in Perry, Oklahoma until retiring to travel with his wife, Mary Ann, and their eight grandchildren. Sam’s love for ice-cream required frequent stops at Braum’s and Dairy Queen stores anytime their adventurous route passed near. He will be remembered most for his love for his family, his big hugs and honest dealings with all people.

July 19, 1944 - November 14, 2018
Mary Ann Connelly Wade, age seventy-four, resident of Orlando, OK slipped away to join her husband with Jesus on Wednesday, November 14, 2018.
Mary Ann was born on July 19, 1944 to Virgil C. and Emogene Marie (Glover) Connelly in Oklahoma City. She attended Moore High School, but graduated from Lexington High School in 1962. Armed with her high school diploma, she paid for three college degrees from Oklahoma State University--those of her husband, daughter and son. She entered the workforce at the Cleveland County Clerk’s office, and retired as an administrative assistant at Lambert Construction Company in 2007. Mary Ann spent the largest part of her life living, working, and painting on the farm. Ever resourceful, Mary Ann was proud of making the first farm payment in 1971 by selling a slew of bottle-fed calves. During her retirement she enjoyed traveling with her husband, Sam, and their eight grandchildren. She also loved teaching art to students at Mulhall-Orlando Public Schools. She was a past president of the Stillwater Art Guild. Her easel at the farm held a blank canvas for the next painting she was planning.
Viewing will be at Trout Funeral Home of Perry on Tuesday, November 20 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. with family visitation from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. A celebration of Mary Ann’s life will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, November 21, 2018 at the Orlando United Methodist Church with Reverend Adrian Pollard and Reverend Ronnie Hopkins officiating. Burial will follow at Resthaven Memorial Gardens in Oklahoma City, OK.

Survivors include her children and their families, Lavonna and Ronnie Hopkins of Woodward; and Connelly and Jennie Wade of Perry; her grandchildren, Erin and Dakota Davis of Alva; Rachael, Jessica, and Samantha Hopkins of Fairview; Nathan, Karlie, Allie, and Eva Wade of Perry; her sisters Kathleen Connelly of Moore, and Melissa and Butch Maine of Canon City, CO; sisters-in-law Anita Dees of New London, CT, and Carla Smith of Round Rock, TX; along with many well-loved cousins, nieces and nephews, as well as neighbors and friends too numerous to count-including all those at Stillwater Cancer Center.
