Barbara Ann Weeks, 73, of White Oak, loving wife, mom and grandmother, “Mamaw,” peacefully went home to be with the Lord on March 27 after a brief battle with cancer.
She was born May 12, 1939, in Pittsburg to Dallas Huey and Beatrice Nicholson. She attended Pittsburg schools where she met her husband of 55 years, Daulton L. Weeks. The high school sweethearts graduated in 1957 and a few months later eloped to Oklahoma and were married Oct. 5.
Barbara was employed by SWEPCO for 30 years and retired in 1997. She was an active member of White Oak Community Church and enjoyed activities with the Red Hatters. Most of her spare time was spent watching her grandchildren and great-grandchildren play sports. She and Daulton traveled many a mile and sat through many a game of baseball, volleyball, softball and basketball.
Barbara was preceded in death by her parents, Dallas and Beatrice Nicholson, and a brother, Thomas E. Nicholson.
