Martha Lee Mooney, 80
July 17, 1938 - June 21, 2019

Martha Lee Mooney, 80, passed away, Friday, June 21, 2019 at Cornerstone Hospital in Shawnee, Oklahoma. Martha was born July 17, 1938 in rural Seminole County, Oklahoma, to Irene C. (Cornelius) Miller and Dixie Alec Miller.  Martha was a member of the Seminole/Creek Tribes of Oklahoma. Martha entered the United States Navy at an early age and attained the rank of E-4.

Martha lived all of her life in Central Oklahoma, except for the time she lived in Norfolk, Virginia while in the U.S. Navy. She worked for many years as an Optometrist Technician at the Wewoka Indian Health Services Clinic in Wewoka, Oklahoma, until she retired.  She attended Draughon’s School of Business in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Martha was a member of the Snake Creek Baptist Church northeast of Seminole and was one of the Sister’s Leaders.  She was a member of the Seminole Nation Senior Citizens of Oklahoma Quilters and Prayer Club.

Martha’s greatest achievement was her service to the Lord. She loved her family with all of her heart and set an example for them. She kept her family in stitches with her antics, even though they were accidental and not on purpose. Martha was a “Pictionary” fanatic, loved sewing baby quilts and various beadwork, reading her daily devotionals and watching her grandchildren play.

She was preceded in death by her parents, and siblings; George Miller, Alan Miller, Billy Miller, Joaquin Miller, Pauline Miller, Kathy Miller, Francis (Miller) Peacore and Baby Miller.
