Paul Edward Tackett - Obituary
Paul Edward Tackett, 77, died in Tulsa, OK, February 19, 2018. Paul was born November 18, 1940 on a farm on Yellow Water Creek, Porter, OK, to Lester and Lottie (Gragg) Tackett. He was 7th of 9 Children.
Education was at Spring Hill, Porter, Haskell and Union Public Schools. He later attended Rogers State and received a certification in Horse Management. He also attended numerous classes to further his knowledge of machine shop skills when he worked during his lifetime.
Life was filled with his love for his family, hard work and pride in accomplishing whatever goals he set. He loved horses, cattle and dogs. Whatever his interest, he wanted the best whether showing horses, showing his classic car, raising cattle or dogs. He instilled a strong, honest work ethic into his children.
On June2, 1961, he married Marilyn Cates. That union lasted 56 plus years and they were blessed with three children, Paula Hewitt and husband Danny, Keith Tackett and wife Kim , Valerie Scott and husband Bill. Six grandchildren, Tara Cameron and husband Tony, Bre Bennett and husband Nick, Kyle Tackett, Rachel Tackett, Blake Scott and Cody Scott and wife Ashley and 6 great-grandchildren, Emma, Eli, Elizabeth, Jackson, Rohan and Chloe. The greats were given special privileges which children and grandchildren were not allowed.
Paul gave his heart to the Lord in his teen years. He served in probably every area of the church with a deep faith which he didn't always show openly. He was a member of the Wagoner Assembly of God Church. He also had a love for music, playing the guitar and other instruments and often singing in church.
Most of his life he worked in manufacturing, but his love was in farming and ranching. In later years he became a homebuilder and was known as an "onsite builder". He literally overseen each day of construction and built each home as if it was to be his own.
Paul went to heaven to be with his parents Lester and Lottie, 4 brothers: James, Jewell, R.D. & Junior and 3 sisters: Dortha, Deloris & Louella.
He leaves behind his wife, 3 children, 6 grandchildren, 6 great-grandchildren and one brother Donnie (Cleta) Tackett of Moody, OH.
It would fill a book with Paul's many stories, accomplishments and the many friends he had during his life. He will be dearly missed.

Died Saturday, February 17, 2018

One of her earliest memories was riding behind her younger brother on the family plow horse. Life was hard sometimes but she never felt poor or disadvantaged. She was teased at school for having freckles and red hair and the nickname “Red” stuck throughout her life. She and her cousins climbed trees, made forts, played outside on sleds in winter and in the cold mountain streams in the summer. When they were made to come inside, they listened to radio and she dreamed of being a dancer. When she was 19 she got a job at the Camp Pickett, VA, Exchange. Camp Pickett was a deployment post for the U.S. Army and there she met a young infantry soldier named J.R. Palmer, from Muskogee, OK. It was love at first sight, and they would marry in Los Angeles, CA after WWII.

They returned to Muskogee to make their home. Daughter B.J. was born a year later. Red worked at a number of jobs, even taught herself bookkeeping, but her first love was being a beauty operator. She opened a one chair shop in their converted den on York Street and in a few years owned a large shop two blocks north on York. She and her dear “girls” Anna, Marion, Jean, Carol, Connie (her “daughters by other mothers) made Muskogee beautiful for over 40 years. Red and J.R. were active members of Grace Episcopal Church where she helped with the acolyte program, Sunday school, Women of Grace and baking for countless coffee hours with her special pal, Catherine Blackwell. When she finally retired, she continued to be a faithful member of American Ex-Prisoners of War, she fed the birds, (especially the hummingbirds) gardened, travelled, practiced Tai Chi and Yoga, supported PAWS, and continued to “help out at the shop”.

Mrs. Altha M. Dorn, in her 85th year, went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 from Muskogee, Oklahoma.

It all began on January 18, 1933 in Eufaula, Oklahoma, when a beautiful, bouncing, baby girl was born ot James Martin and Dallas West.  They decided to name this precious daughter Altha Martin.

Altha grew up in Eufaula, Oklahoma, where she graduated from high school and later  attended college at Langston University.  After graduating from Langston University, she moved to Pauls Valley, Oklahoma, where she taught school and married Alfred Dorn.  This union was bless with two boys;  Kenneth Wayne and James Alfred.  After some years went by, this marriage was later dissolved.

Altha taught school in Caffe, Oklahoma and she would later move to Muskogee, Oklahoma, where she began her teaching career for Muskogee Public Schools.  She taught at Dunbar Elementary, Jefferson Elementary and Whittier Elementary schools.  She also taught GED classes and her subject she taught was Government.  Mrs. Dorn furthered her education by going back to school and earning her Master's Degree  from Central State University, [now UCO] in Edmond, Oklahoma.

Anyone who knew Altha knew that her favorite hobby was working out in her yard.  She loved flowers and her yard would always show the beauty of her work. 

She joined the Mount Calvary Baptist Church, where she enjoyed working with Vacation Bible School and singing in the Choir.  Altha was also a member of the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., and a member of the Oklahoma Retired Teachers Organization.

Mrs. Dorn's family was her life.  She was so excited when she was blessed with grandchildren.  After she retired from teaching, she kept her grandson, James Dorn, II, until he was able to go to school.  She looked forward to picking him up everyday from school, where she would bring him home and make him very good snacks to eat.  She enjoyed shopping and would pick up her granddaugher, Jameica Dorn Seay and they would shop for hours before coming home and showing off all they had bought. 

In later years, she was blessed with a great-granddaughter, Kaleese Seay and she was the apple of her eyes.  She enjoyed when Kaleese came to visit.  She would always have gifts for her and she enjoyed listening to Kaleese play the Organ and Piano and would join in and play with her.

Those loving family members who were waiting on her at Heaven's gate were; her parents, brother, uncles and aunts.

She leaves in God's care to cherish her memory;  her sons,  Kenneth Dorn and James Dorn, Sr. [Beverly];  her grandchildren, Jamecia Dorn Seay and James Dorn, II;  her great-grandchildren, Kaleese MaeElla Sean and Kerry Titus Seay;  a special cousin, Marie Smith;  her loving caregiver, MureLisa Titsworth;  two very special friends, Mary Wynn and Virginia Schoats;  as well as a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Her sacred farewell will commence on Saturday, February 24, 2018 at 10:00 AM in the most holy sanctuary of the Mount Calvary Baptist Church, 622 North J. A. Reed, Sr., Boulevard in Muskogee.  Her Pastor, Reverend Gary Hall, Sr., will officiate.  The Christian committal will follow the ceremony in the Booker T. Washington Cemetery.
