Obituary for Susie T. Harrison

Susie Theresa Cornelia Baker Harrison

Susie Harrison passed away on Saturday, January 13th, 2018 at the Heritage Village Nursing Center in Holdenville, OK. The youngest of eleven children, Susie was born on February 17, 1923 in Bethany, OK , to the late Stewart and Mary Chearcy Baker. She married Eugene "Gene" Harrison on July 29, 1942 in Flint, Michigan.

Susie had a heart for others, spending her lfie focusing on her seven children and helping them be successful in their chosen areas of interest. She spent several years working with the Girl Scouts in Wilburton, OK and the Cub Scouts and Campfire Girls Associations in Wewoka, OK. She also gave her time to the Seminole County Council of Mentally Retarded Children, acting as their President in the early 1960's and she taught Sunday School at the local Assembly of God church.

When she and her family relocated to Portland, OR, Susie continued to find ways to serve others.
She was the President of the VFW Auxiliary Post 81 Mt. Hood in Portland, OR, and served as the Sunday School Department Superintendent at First Assembly of God, Portland, OR. Susie taught weaving and sewing groups at Evangel Temple Church of Portland, and was a quilting group leader, as well. She also volunteered for " Loaves and Fishes," acting as a cook to prepare meals and a driver to deliver those meals to local shut-ins.

When she and Gene returned to Oklahoma in 1979, Susie immediately took up where she had left off, helping to open the Senior Citizen Center in Cromwell, OK, and serving there for three years. Being back in Oklahoma also allowed her to enjoy one of her favorite pastimes: attending Oklahoma Sooner football games.

Susie is survived by daughter Mary and Rick Gantt, of Wewoka, OK; daughter Carol and Randy Schaff of St. Helens, OR; son Rick and Lucy Harrison of Center Point, OR; son John Paul and Louise Harrison of Dundee, OR; and daughter Peggy and John Smith of Holdenville, OK.
