A time of visitation will be held on Tuesday, February 28, from 6:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. at the Flanagan-Watts Funeral Home in Marietta.

 
Chiquita was born on July 22, 1934, in Marietta to Ross and Ruby (Carlile) Bloomer. She passed away on Friday, February 24, 2023, at the Mercy Hospital in Ardmore, at the age of 88.
 
Chiquita married E.L. “Honey Man” Morton on June 18, 1955, in Marietta.
 
She graduated from Meadowbrook High School and then attended Southeastern Oklahoma State University in Durant, graduating in three years with a B.S. in education. Her major was in elementary education. She taught her first year in Lovington, New Mexico, where she and E.L. resided, until they moved back to Ardmore in 1956. She taught an additional thirty-six years in various schools in Carter County, retiring in 1996.
During that time, she received her masters in education from East Central University in Ada. This gave her certification in all fields of special education. She taught twenty years in that field.
Chiquita was a very active person and had many passions in life. She was a member of the Emmanuel Baptist Church, where she participated with the choir and just retired from being a Sunday school teacher after fifty years of teaching. She volunteered as a Pink Lady at Mercy Hospital in Ardmore, leaving in 2020 during the Covid pandemic. The Chickasaw Elder was very active in the Chickasaw Nation Ardmore Senior Citizen Center activities and traveled with them for many years. She was also very involved with their monthly Indian Taco sale at the Senior Center. She loved to go shopping and had a knack at the art of couponing. The biggest love of her life was spending time with her family. She had the biggest joy being with her great-granddaughter, Italey, and picking her up from school, even up until her last days. She was her pride and joy.

Preceding Chiquita in death are her parents; husband; son-in-law, Lenny Davis; brother and sister-in-law, Donald and Desey Bloomer; sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Christine and Gale Cox; brother-in-law, Don Davenport; and a nephew, Danny Bloomer.
 
Those left to cherish Chiquita’s memory are her sons, Mike Morton and wife Christina of Burneyville, OK, and Jeffrey Morton and special friend Teresa Wright of Ardmore; daughter, Tanya Davis of Ardmore; sisters-in-law Oma Ruth Alexander and husband Wayne of Wilson, OK, and Eveylene Davenport of Ardmore; six grandchildren, Dustin Davis and wife Madi, Hillary Davis, Stephanie Young, John Minor, Jacob Minor and Ashley Flanagan; and seven great-grandchildren, Italey Davis, Kallihan Rozzell, Rhiannon Kiker, Garrett Flanagan, Wyatt Flanagan, Emma Minor and Sara Minor.
 
Serving as casket bearers will be Dustin Davis, Wyatt Flanagan, Garrett Flanagan, Casey Price, T.J. Williamson and Jeffrey Morton. Honorary casket bearers will be former school and Sunday school students and members of the Chickasaw Seniors.
 
A keepsake video is available through the funeral home.
