Obituary

Sarah Ann “Granny” Mathis, 87, lived a long & joyful life & passed peacefully surrounded by her family after a courageous battle with cancer. Granny was born in Oklahoma City on September 29, 1931, to Lee & Cleo Agnes Senseney Mathis. She grew up in Oklahoma City & graduated from Classen High School in 1950. Granny raised three daughters, one son & two stepchildren, fifteen grandbabies & fourteen great grandbabies, not to mention the dozens of little humans she babysat at her in-home daycare for over fifty years. She loved talking with people & this led her to be able to accept everyone, all the husbands & wives of her family instantly felt her love & acceptance. Granny loved to cook & was known for her signature “Granny’s Cheesecake” (brought to us all by Jell-O!) & her ongoing competition for tallest “Perfect Chocolate Cake”, at which she dominated. Granny loved to crochet & she deftly crafted last name decorations for all. She developed deep, lasting relationships with everyone & we have all been made greater for knowing her. Her beautiful life carries on in our memories & connections. Granny was preceded in death by her parents, Lee & Cleo Mathis; son-in-law, Michael Neal Schell; infant brother, Gary Lee Mathis; brother, Elmer Lee “Butch” Mathis; & stepson, Dwight Crane. She is survived by her children: Daughter Laurie Fenrick & husband Jim; Daughter Julie Nichols & husband Terry; Son Terry Hedges & wife Sherry; Daughter Jennifer Hader & husband Jim; and, Stepdaughter Phyllis Melton. Sister-in-law, Linda Mathis; & Nephew Mike Mathis & Niece Mickey Wells. Fifteen grandchildren: Amy Fenrick, Angie Ediger & husband Jared, Adam Fenrick, Andrew Fenrick & wife Mary Rachel, Ryan Nichols, Brent Nichols & wife Mary, Aaron Nichols & wife Tiana, Jared Nichols, Katie Daughtery & husband Jason, Grant Nichols & wife Maria, A.J. Hedges, Stephanie Ashurst & husband Matt, Scott Hader, Josh Hader & wife Rebecca, Caleb Hader & wife Shayla.
