ღGrandmotherღ

"Sammy", as she was lovingly called by her grandchildren, was the daughter of Green Campbell Byrd of Tennessee, and Sarah Jane Bryant of Illinois. Her parents lived in Shawnee, Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma. Lois married Jack Bethel in 1911 in Wolfe City, TX, and there they had two sons. He died during the 1918 influenza pandemic. She moved to Shawnee to be near her parents and where she raised her children, Glen and Gordon, having never remarried. She worked for Bell T&T, retiring in the early 1960s after years as supervisor. She was the oldest living charter member of her church, Trinity Baptist in Shawnee, and remained active until later in years at which time she moved to Alabama to be near her family.
