NORMAN — Frances Ruth Page Mitchell, also known as “Sissy,” of Kingston, passed away Thursday, March 21, 2014. She was born Aug. 21, 1926, in Willis, to the late Paul E. Dickerson Sr. and Viola Hayes Dickerson.
Sissy was a proud member of the Chickasaw Nation and a lifelong resident of Marshall County.
She was a wonderful country cook who liked nothing better than to prepare a meal for her family and friends. Her hands were rarely idle as she quilted and crocheted her way through life. Sissy believed every new baby in Willis deserved one of her hand-made baby afghans. And her flowers seemed to always be in bloom.
The last years of her life were spent at the Baptist Village and Family Care Center. She was a member of the First Baptist Church in Willis and she loved little children and her family.
She is survived by her children, Richard Page and wife Sandra of Willis and Donna Page of Norman; her grandchildren, Kasi Shelton of Norman, Heather Weaver and husband Urian of Kingston and Dustin Page Ithaca of New York; great-grandchildren Ewan and Ella Weaver; sister Hyahwahnah Cox of Willis; sister in-law Katie Page of Willis; and brother in-law Bill Page of Hollis.
Sissy was preceded in death by her parents; first husband, Lee Voy “Buddy” Page; her second husband, Edd Mitchell; three sisters, Inez Hefner, Lucille Dickerson and Kathleen Dickerson; and two brothers, Bud and Paul E. Dickerson Jr.
In lieu of flowers, the family request donations be made to the Kingston Public Schools, P.O. Box 370, Kingston, OK 73439.
