Allene Agnes Autaubo was born in Okemah, Oklahoma, to Grover Cleveland Rhea & Hattie Simmer in 1927. Allene did not like the name Agnes, at which she described as “an old maid’s name”

In an old three room schoolhouse, after her mother passed away, Allene devoted her life and light to the faith of Jesus Christ and was born again at the age of ten. She would soon be baptized in a local pond.

Allene was a Muscogee Creek Nation citizen. Allene graduated from Chilocco Indian Boarding School where she met her husband, World War II Veteran, Adam Autaubo. The two would wed in the late spring of May 1948 and relocate to Oklahoma City where Allene accepted a Lay-Out Operator position with AT&T at which she gave support for 29 and a half years.

Allene was fond of family meals that she prepared and summer vacations with her grandchildren. Her favorite activities included day trips to Oklahoma State football games with only her and Adam, creating elaborate cakes and decorating them, quilling and sewing.

As she cherished and adored her family, Allene also loved her church families. Allene served and attended South Central Baptist Church in Oklahoma City from 1950 to 1965. For 50 years, from 1965 to 2015, she was a member of Central Baptist Church in Oklahoma City. At Central she served as, Sunday School teacher to pre-kindergarten to 5 years of age children, choir member, hospitality leader, WMU member, Vacation Bible School teacher, Indian Falls Creek cook, nursery leader and GA leader. Her final church membership was at Glorieta Baptist Church in Oklahoma City.

Allene was not always the fondest of furry little pets but she did accept: the chihuahua named King; the darling tea cup, Chupita; and the loyalty and alertness of Fermat.

Allene departed peacefully on Saturday the 23rd of March in the year of our Lord two thousand and nineteen. Her favorite bible scripture was Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”


Allene was preceded in death by her father, Grover Cleveland Rhea; and her mother, Hattie Simmer; her husband, Adam Autaubo; her daughter, Gloria Dean Autaubo-Atkins; son in-law, Tillier Wesley, Jr.; her sister, Flora Jean Miller; her brothers, Pompey Rhea and Arthur Rhea; and great-grandson, Tah-Lee Rhea Autaubo.

Allene is survived by, her sister, Nova Dean Smith; her son, Kenneth Rhea Autaubo; her daughter, Pamela Kay Autaubo-Wesley; six grandchildren, Shanun Gibson, Toyce Holmes, Arianne Autaubo, Colby Atkins, Micah Wesley, Lyndsey Autaubo; three great-grandchildren, Arianna, Angelina, and Alycia Atkins.

I am so sorry for the family’s loss loss. Death is one of the hardest trials to cope with. May you find comfort from the future promise recorded in Isaiah 25:8 which says “he [God] will swallow up death forever.” We can be certain God will fulfill the words from his word the Bible.
