Obituary

Florence Mabel Presley lived and worked in the Stillwater area all her life. She went to her heavenly home on January 6, 2021.
Due to the impact of the pandemic, a memorial service will be at Eagle Heights Baptist Church on Saturday, January 9, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. for family and close friends. Strode Funeral Home and Cremation is in charge of arrangements.
Florence was born February 12, 1932 in rural Cushing, Oklahoma. She was the last of eight children born to Herbert and Sarah Greenwood. She attended Cushing Public Schools and while working the soda fountain at a local drug store she met and fell in love with a young soldier named Claude Presley who had just returned from World War II. They were married on June 29, 1947 and journeyed through life united in marriage for 52 years until his death in 1999.
There are three things that primarily define her life: 1) her commitment to her faith, 2) her love for her
family, & 3) her dedication to her career.
Her Faith:
She was a Charter Member of Southside Baptist Church and was active there for 43 years. She then
transferred to First Baptist Church for 5 years and for the last 23 years was an active member of Eagle
Heights Baptist Church. She loved to sing the old gospel hymns.
Her Family:
Florence was predeceased by her husband, Claude; three sisters, Opal Roe, Ruby Stiles, & Beulah Killough; and two brothers, Harold (Bub) Greenwood & John Greenwood.
She is survived by two siblings; a sister, Ethel Chadwick of Cushing, OK. and a brother, George Greenwood of Moorhead, Minn. Six Children; two daughters, Lois Presley of Oklahoma City, and Janet Hays & her husband Kim of Perry; four sons, Gene Presley & his wife Debby of Sapulpa, Leo Presley & his wife Susie of Stillwater, Randy Presley & his wife Kathy of Blanchard, and Jason Presley of Philadelphia; 21 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren. Nothing pleased her more than to have "the whole gang" packed into her house on holidays and special occasions.
Her Career:
She worked for Stillwater Public Schools from 1964 until her retirement in 1994. She began as an
assistant lunchroom cook at Lincoln Elementary, before becoming the head cook. Later she served as the school secretary for Lincoln Elementary, then finished her career as the secretary at Highland Park
Elementary. She appreciated her relationships with the administrators and faculty and cherished her
interactions with the students.
Memorials may be made to Eagle Heights Legacy Fund, Eagle Heights Baptist Church, 2617 N. Jardot
Road, Stillwater, Oklahoma 74075.

Florence was loved by all - particularly her nieces and nephews. She was a good listener and told you like it was! I didn't learn until late in her life that she really didn't like "Flornie" which was my favorite name for her. I just couldn't get in the habit of "Flo!" One of her many gifts was cooking. After she retired she made pies for many friends, church gatherings, neighbors, and family. I imagine that she never followed a recipe and no one made noodles like the Greenwood gals. During my college days we got to catch up when I fixed her hair. She loved to fish and it didn't really matter how big they were - she just liked the thrill of pulling them out of the pond. It greatly saddens me not to be able to pay honor to her and see her family. With the health issues Chip and I have had, it is just too risky and I don't think I could suppress my desire to hug all of you. Love you each and every one, Chip & Nancy
