Born Mar. 7, 1922, in Clonsilla near Adamson, she was the daughter of George and Hannah (Dobson) Housley. Her family moved to Idaho when she was a preteen and she graduated from high school there. She returned to Hartshorne as a young adult to visit her sister and was introduced to Robert "Bob" Chronister. They were married Aug. 16, 1941, in Hartshorne. They made their home in Hartshorne until two years ago when they moved to Broken Arrow to be near their sons. She worked at Dollins Chevrolet and as a teller at the First National Bank in Hartshorne. When Dr. Roy Honeywell opened his medical practice she went to work for him as his office manager and worked there until his retirement. She was an avid supporter of Oklahoma State University sports and always watched the games that were televised, but her real enjoyment was spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was a longtime member of the Hartshorne First Baptist Church where she was the pianist for many years and was more recently a member of the Haileyville Baptist Church where she also played the piano.
