Marian Cheree Headley passed away on December 23, 2020, at the age of 80. “Cheree” was born to the Rev. Curtis and Daisy Ledbetter on August 19, 1940, in Dallas, Texas. She grew up in Dallas, spending much of her time in the Gospel Lighthouse Church with her family. She moved to Duncan, Oklahoma in her early teens. There, she enjoyed sewing, cooking and canning many of the foods that came from her family's garden. She met her spouse Glenn Headley and they were married on January 12, 1961. Together they raised 2 children, Marian Rene and Glenn Ray II, whom they loved very much. Throughout Cheree's life, she was known for her kindness and generosity, giving to those in need, even though many times she had so little to give herself. She worked as a Bookkeeper for many years until she retired from the state of Oklahoma in 2007. Cheree will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
