2/17/2011- The Purcell Register:

Funeral services for Hugh Ollis Grayson were held Feb 16 at Wadley's funeral chapel with Father Michael Vaught officiating. Interment was at St John the Baptist Catholic cemetery in Lexington under the direction of Wadley's Funeral Service in Purcell. Mr Grayson went to be with the Lord on Saturday, 2/12/2011, after a brief illness, in the Norman Health Plex. Casketbearers were Wilson Lyles, Larry Feuerborn, Curtis Gregg, Greg Oliphant, David Northcutt, Hal Grayson, Mike Hand, and Doug Northcutt.

Ollis was born 5/24/1923 in Erick, OK., the 3rd child to Walter Talmay & Lillie Bynum Grayson. As a child, he attended school at Hixt Switch near Erick. In 1941, his family moved to McClain county, where he attended Washington schools. Ollis served in the Navy during World War II and was later medically discharged. Ollis met Mamie Jo Feuerborn while she was working at the Gilt Edge Ice Cream parlor in Oklahoma City. They were united in marriage 5/27/1949 in Wheeler, TX. After announcing their marriage to family and friends in Erick, that evening, they were chivalrously required to get on a Greyhound bus which was stopped at Erick, and they passed out 1 piece of toilet paper to each passenger. Later they were both placed in a wheelbarrow and rode down Main Street in Erick. Ollis accepted the Lord as his personal savior and was baptized in the Moorhead pond north of Washington in 1943. Ollis and Mamie made their home north of Lexington, where they farmed vegetables and watermelons. Ollis is preceded in death by his parents, and brother, Woodie Grayson.
