|Birth: ||Apr. 12, 1913|
|Death: ||Jan. 1, 1991|
Buried beside her husband, Ira Odle Dawson, in Colbert, Oklahoma. Double headstone. They lived in the Calera and Platter, Oklahoma communities for many years. Although living in Platter, the nearest large hospital was in Denison, Texas, therefore both passed away in Texas, several years apart.
She was a wife, mother and homemaker, who had a mischievous little giggle, laughed easily and always had a twinkle in her eye. Although she bore 8 children, her second child (a boy) only lived about a week. She raised 4 girls and 3 more boys, including a set of twins.
Stella Mae could turn a basketful of fabrics into the most gorgeous quilts anyone could wish to have. I loved to visit her house when I was small because a pallet on the floor was warm and comfy with you snuggled in those beautiful, brightly colored quilts.
