Maymie Chase

Woodward, Okla. — Maymie Chase, 99 year old Woodward resident, passed away surrounded by her family at her home on February 14, 2013.  Funeral services will be held at 10:00 am Monday, February 18, 2013 in the First Christian Church with the Reverend Jeremy Skaggs officiating.  Interment will follow in Elmwood Cemetery with the Billings Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.  Visitation will be held at the funeral home on Sunday, February 17, 2013 from 1:00 pm until 8:00 pm.

 

Maymie May (Haikey) Chase was born on May 16, 1913 in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma to Ellis Riley and Sarah (Burgess) Haikey.  Maymie spent her early years in Sapulpa.  When Maymie was  13 years of age, her mother passed away and her father, unable to find work, sent her to the Indian School in Eufaula or as Maymie called it “her prison”.  After several escape attempts, she went to live with her aunt.   Her aunt’s house was next to the Haikey Chapel, a church her grandfather started, which still stands at 101st Street and Memorial in Tulsa.

 

Maymie was united in marriage to Burr Nathan Chase in Sapulpa, Oklahoma  and they made their home in Tulsa.  Maymie and Burr moved to Woodward in 1947 where they opened Woodward Glass and operated the store until 1973 when Burr retired.  Maymie’s main focus was her family and she devoted her life to them.  Maymie and Burr were married for 47 years.

 

Maymie volunteered wherever needed and did so for over 30 years to the Woodward County Election Board.  She was a member of the Eastern Star for over 50 years, and an OHC member for 57 years.  She belonged to several card playing clubs, Queen Esther Order of the Easter Star, Woodwardettes, Friends of the Star, and the Cherrio’s Club.

 

Maymie was a member of the First Christian Church.

 

She is survived by five daughters, Marian Stout and husband Herb of Fairview; Pat Crooks of Siloam Springs, Arkansas, Kathryn Estle and husband Bud of Broken Arrow, Carolyn Chase of Woodward, Joyce Hunter and husband Jim of Yukon; one son George Chase and wife Vicky of Carrollton, Texas; two brothers, Foster Haikey of Salina, Ellis R.
