I married my best friend and high school sweetheart, Marla Ferguson (Memorial '65) and have two sons, two grand-daughters and one grandson. Marla and I owned funeral homes and ambulance services in Wetumka, Dustin, and Weleetka, OK.
Although divorced, we still see each other at least weekly at Trinity Episcopal Church (5th @ Cinn. Ave)and family events. Just one big screwed-up family since we both have new husbands and our sons do not have wives.
Later, I met my current husband Philip Hensley(Edison '74). Philip and I have owned several funeral homes in Oklahoma, Florida, and Texas.
I obtained a BS from Central State College, professional degree from Pierce College, Dallas, TX and Hon. PhD in Mortuary Science. I hold multi-state Funeral Director and Embalmer License. I am also certified by Kenyon International as a specialist.
I have served on the Executive Board of most civic, fraternal, social organizations at the local and state level. Also am a member of Oklahoma, Texas, Florida, and National Funeral Directors Associations.
I was a member of the Ok. Council on Economical Development and the Rural Oklahoma Emergency Medical Transportation Authority.
In my 50 year career, I feel privileged to have served many families, some very well known and others unknown, at perhaps the lowest time of their life.
In retirement, I enjoy trains, both real and toy, and still play the theatre pipe organ. For several years I performed at Villa Philbrook during the Festival of Trees.
Philip and I car travel all over the United States.
