Clide Maxine Chenoweth was the beautiful daughter and youngest of seven children born to Jeff William Chenoweth and Melvia Willie Hensley Chenoweth in Benton County at Healing Spring's, Arkansas.

Beecher Charles Owens and Clide Maxine Chenoweth were married September 2, 1947 in Fayetteville, Arkansas. They spent their honeymoon in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. Loving and Proud Parents of twins ~ Judy Maxine and Beecher Charles Owens Jr. ~ then three years later, Pixie Colleen Owens.

Cherished Grandmother of Colleen Jeanette Grace, Angela Michelle Wright and Joey Charles Owens. ~ Precious Great Grandmother of Nicholas Alexander, Kaitlyn Grace, Lauren Margaret, Sara Dawn and Joseph Colton.

Mother was a dairy farmer and poultry grower for 38 years, she knew all about hard work and responsibility. Mother milked 27 cows by hand every morning and evening. She kept cream cans sitting in cold spring water over next to the granary, and would fill'em by carrying two buckets of milk at a time from the barn. The cans of milk were picked up by the milk truck every morning, later on Mother got automatic milkers, which made the job a little easier. Mother also had three brooder houses of chickens, this was alot of work for one skinny little farm girl! Once each winter my uncles and aunts all came over and we'd butcher three or four of our fattest hogs. The sausage meat was stuffed into cloth sacks granny made on her pedal sewing machine, (which I now have in my home, and cherish). For the rest of the winter, we'd have fresh ham from the smokehouse, breakfast was pork tenderlion, redeye gravy and granny made homemade biscuits every mornin'. I remember in the summer when a terrible storm would blow in during the middle of the night, Mother would jump out of bed, and head to the brooder houses to close all the windows, and make sure her chickens didn't pile up. I loved summertime on the farm, Mother would take us out on the back porch at night, to hear the Panther Cat scream, that was pretty exciting, I never wanted to be very far from the back door or out of her arms! Laying in bed at night listening to the whippoorwill's right outside our bedroom window before falling asleep. Mother was a cowgirl at heart, she loved wearing western clothes, and could ride any horse her daddy had on their farm, her favorite horse was "Dinah". She loved country and western swing music. Her favorite season was spring, seeing the beautiful flowers blooming, the magnificent beauty of the dogwood and redbud trees in her yard.

Mother married Charles Martin on July 12, 1965 in Bentonville, Arkansas.

Mother was a member of the United Methodist Church of Elm Springs, Arkansas.

Your Children Love You Mother with all our heart...the moment you died, our hearts were split in two, the one side filled with memories the other died with you! xxxxxxoooooo

A beautiful tribute was written for our Mother by a very close lifelong family friend that is more like a sister Carol Inlow. gave us such a treasured gift to cherish as long as we live! Thank You from the bottom of our heart! We Love you, Carol!

After you called this morning, I went out and sat in the driveway where I could see your old house. The valley was so quite this morning...hardly a sound except for the birds. I reflected on your mama, the way I remembered her best. I remember how very hard she worked, but I also remember how she embraced life. I remember her she slung her head back when she laughed...I can still see her white teeth and her red lipstick. Most of all, I remember how much fun she was. No one could tell a story like your mama. Even when I went to she her in the nursing home, her stories still filled me with laughter.
As I sat there quietly reflecting, I noticed a big, puffy white cloud boil up over the old house. It seemed like it came out of nowhere, and it grew until it towered way up into the sky, probably 40,000 ft. at least. The morning sun caught the edges of it and gave it a golden glow. I watched it for a long time as it hovered over your house. Then, the cloud split into separate, elongated clouds. The cloud closest to the west turned darker than the others as it was shaded from the sunlight. Suddenly, the darker cloud, driven by a wind current, drifted away leaving three golden clouds in the rising sun. The darker cloud dissolved into a kind of mist and disappeared over the western horizon. I sat there crying like a baby, I knew your mama had finally found her long sought peace.

Love You,
