Grace Poteet (Pugh) Moore

NORMAN — Grace Poteet (Pugh) Moore left earth to enter Heaven Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2013, at the age of 98 years and two months. Though we mourn her passing from our world, we know we will meet again in her new home, and we rejoice that the Lord shared her with us all those years.

Grace was born on Sept. 19, 1915, to Bedford and Mary Susan (Brown) Poteet in Whitleyville, Tenn., in the post office there. Bedford was postmaster, and they lived in the back rooms. At the age of 4, her family moved to Oklahoma, following the oil and gas boom. She graduated from Terlton High School in 1934, married Odell E. Pugh, and they started their family, dad’s crew: Jo Elane, Carol Ann and Donna Jean completed the picture.

She was preceded by Odell; their youngest daughter, Donna Jean; her parents; one brother; and one nephew; and aunts and uncles too numerous to list but waiting for her arrival in heaven.

Grace is survived by two daughters, Carol A. Chausse of Norman and Jo Elane (George) Moore of Cushing; her sister, Virginia Lea Wall of Salem, Ore.; seven grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; 13 great-great-grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews and abundant friends.

Per her request, no services are scheduled at this time. A memorial will be hosted for her at a later date.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the care of Primrose Funeral Service, primrosefuneralservice.com.
