A graveside service to honor the life of Linda Sue Daniels was  held at 11:30 a.m., Monday, March 19, 2018,  at the Okmulgee Cemetery in Okmulgee with Pastor Tim Craighton officiating.

Linda Sue Daniels (Crawford) passed away at the age of 69 on March 15, 2018, at her home in Morris with her loving family by her side. She was born on September 15, 1948, in San Bernardino, Calif. to the parents of John Crawford and Viola Crawford (Hicks). Linda spent her years growing up in Wichita, Kan. where she graduated from North High in 1966. On January 11, 1967,  she married the love of her life Martin Daniels. 

The two of them had found two random people on the street that barely spoke any English and told them that they needed witnesses for their wedding; so, the four of them went down to the court house in Okmulgee and the rest was history. 51 years of wonderful marriage they have spent together since.
