Oleta Fern Moler, 83, of Stillwater, Oklahoma passed away April 14, 2019 with her children by her side at Willow Creek in Guthrie, Oklahoma. Her life and faith will be celebrated at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, Stillwater, Oklahoma, with a Rosary service on Tuesday, April 16 at 7pm, and a funeral mass on Wednesday, April 17 at 11am, followed by interment at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Ponca City, Oklahoma. Strode Funeral Home and Cremation is in charge of the arrangements.

Oleta was born to the late Melda and Raymond L. Babcock, April 27, 1935, in Mutual, Oklahoma. Early in childhood, Oleta’s family moved to Alva, Oklahoma, where she attended grammar school and then later moved to Ponca City where she graduated high school.

She married the late William J. Moler, May 15, 1954, in Culver City, California before returning to Oklahoma later that year to raise their family. Oleta is survived by five children: Catherine Asmussen (Mark) of West Monroe, LA, Theresa Abernathy (David) of St. Louis, Roberta Moler-Mitchell of Stillwater, Robert Moler (Nicole) of Dallas, and William R. Moler (Amy) of Kansas City, along with 18 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. Oleta was predeceased by her loving husband of 64 years in July of 2018.

Oleta was not only a loving wife and mother but she also a Human Resources professional working for Mercruiser until retirement in 1989. She loved to serve God and her community. Oleta jointly-led weekly bible study groups in her home with her husband, Deacon Bill. She was a member of St. Francis Xavier Alter Society at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church. And most notably, she served 22 years as a volunteer with Judith Karmen Hospice. Oleta loved gardening, sewing, and doting on her grandchildren. She had great love for her family, and her soul-mate, Bill. Although life presented numerous, and seemingly insurmountable, challenges for Oleta, her friends and family will remember her for her genuine unwavering reply of “I’m fine.”

Memorials in lieu of flowers may be made to the Mother Teresa Ministry at St. Francis Xavier church in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

Moler family: Jim (Arnold) and I (Shirley Arnold) met your parents before Billy and Bobby were born. Jim worked with Bill for many, many years for OG&E. They were funny together. Bill supported OU. Jim supported OSU. Bill was Catholic. Jim was Baptist. During their funny conversations, Oleta would just bring in some cold drinks and cookies and smile at both men. Your Mom was such a delight and would help you any way she could. It was nice when I could return the favor. I remember sitting with Billy and Bobby in the hospital while Bill & Oleta's mom were in the same hospital. I thought that was really a tough time for Oleta, but she handled it with grace. Jim and Bill would help each other anytime they needed help, too, but never agreed on religion or the state universities! I can close my eyes and almost hear Oleta's calm and gentle voice. Bill and Oleta were SO proud of their children and grandchildren! God bless and guide their family in the future.

Terry Moler-Abernathy Posted at 09:23am

Thank you so much you for your kind comments.. I remember fondly Mom & Dad's relationship with your family and other co-workers at OG&E. You will be humored to know that after many years of living in Stillwater, Dad finally accepted Orange Power! Mom was a rock and carried so many hardships with her health with steadfast grace. While we miss them both terribly, we are happy that they are together again and both are free from any the afflictions they suffered here on earth.

Roberta Moler-Mitchell Posted at 09:40am

Jim and Shirley, thank you so very much for your kind words and wonderful memories. Terry and I laughed thinking about the many times our families would gather together. Whether it was an OG&E Christmas party (Santa was always there) or having homemade ice cream at your place or our home on 80th. I know the truest of friendships were with you both, and for that I'm grateful. I was very fond of you two while growing up and would love to contact you if you're still in Oklahoma. Again, thank you for all that you shared with Mom and Dad, and may God continue to bless you in all that you do.
