Obituary for Clara O'Dene Langley

Clara O'Dene  Langley
On Friday morning, December 21, 2018, Clara O'Dene Langley, under the loving care of hospice and family, passed from this world and began her eternal rest at the age of 87.
Clara's long, full, and productive life began on October 24, 1931 when she was born to Orville and Ida Swisher on the family farm in Noble County where she was the eighth of sixteen children. She loved the farm animals, especially horses. Growing up during the Great Depression Era was not always easy, but work on the farm taught her many life lessons that she passed on to her children.
Clara's work career included a time of working for Graves Drug Store, and as bookkeeper for the family business, Auto Safety Center. Her real work, however, was raising her four wonderful children.
On March 14, 1949 Clara married Walter "James" Langley and thus began a wonderful journey of love and family that would begin in Stillwater, but it would be Ponca City that would become their lifelong home for some fifty-four years. Their marriage produced four children: Linda, Nancy, Martha and Mark.
Family was very important to Clara. As the children grew up, they remained close as all remained in Ponca City. This meant monthly gatherings at Mom and Dad's house and plenty of time at "Our Place " celebrating family. Clara loved to quilt and many quilts were made for family and friends at Clara's Quilt House. She also loved to go on trips with her family.
Clara was indeed a special person who was loved and will be greatly missed. Above all else, Clara will be remembered as a wonderful wife, a caring mother, and a loving grandmother and great-grandmother.
She is survived by James, her husband of 69 years; her five children: Linda, and husband Mike Culver; Nancy, and husband Gary Watters; Martha, and husband Matt Cremers; Mark, and wife Sandra Langley; and Suzy, and husband Jim Pascal. To show the strength of family ties, all the family lives in Ponca City. She is also survived by sixteen grandchildren and twenty-nine great-grandchildren. Clara also is survived by two sisters, Sallie Brown and Barbara White, both of Stillwater and two brothers, Ron Swisher of Collinsville and Ike Swisher of Stillwater, numerous nephews and nieces, other family members and friends.
Funeral services will be held at 1:00 p.m. Friday, December 28, at the Strode Funeral Home Chapel, located at 610 S. Duncan Street in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Interment will follow in Sunset Memorial Gardens.
The family would like to thank Via Christie Village and Hospice for the wonderful care and love shown to Clara during the final days of her struggle. Those wishing to honor Clara’s memory may do so by contributing to Hospice of North Central Oklahoma, 445 Fairview, Ponca City, Oklahoma.
