Mary Bigheart

Published 5-9-13

ENID, Okla. — Mary Bigheart was born July 10, 1931, in DeNoya (Wizbang), Okla., to Harold and Marguerite Johnson. Mary passed away Wednesday, May 8, 2013, at the home of her son-in-law and daughter near Garber, Okla., surrounded by her children and other family members.

Mary grew up in Little Chief, Okla., and married Sonny Bigheart in 1947.

Sonny and Mary raised their three children in oil field towns across Kansas and Oklahoma.  She made numerous friends over the years.

Sonny and Mary made their home in Enid, Okla., in 1980, when Sonny started Bigheart Drilling Co. Her passion was her children and grandchildren.

Mary fought a courageous 45-year battle with Multiple Sclerosis, which took her ability to walk 30 years ago, but today, she dances in heaven with her Lord and Saviour. Mary was an example to her family and others of how to face adversity with courage, faith and dignity.

Mary is survived by three children and their spouses, Mike and Terry Bigheart, Steve and Debbie Bigheart and Cindi Bigheart and Richard Staerkel. Her grandchildren and their spouses are Conrad Bigheart and wife Jill, Kasie Turk and husband Jason, Buck Bigheart and wife Alisha, Jami Decker and husband Michael, Shanda Slater and husband Zach, Lynsey Bigheart and Corbin Bigheart. Her precious great-grandchildren include: Ashlyn, Sadie, Jase, CJ, Ryen, Trajan, Brayden, Reece, Taylor, Savannah, Brock, Gracie, Mikah, Zerek and Jersey.

Mary was preceded in death by her father and mother.

Service for Mary will be 10 a.m. Friday, May 10, 2013, at Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home Chapel, 2800 N. Van Buren, Enid, Okla.

In lieu of flowers, the family request donations be made to Multiple Sclerosis Foundation in care of the funeral home.
