— Maggie Sue Rundell Noland was born on May 13, 1938, in Ft. Worth, Texas and died at the age of  75 on July 28, 2013. She was the only child of Perry Alonzo Rundell and Ina Gardner Rundell.

She was raised near Bryson, Texas, and graduated from Bryson High School, where she was valedictorian of her senior class, a cheerleader, a member of the band and secretary to the superintendent. Maggie attended Phillips University, Enid, where she met Wilbur Dean Noland. She stepped on his toe in an enrollment line. Wilbur has always wondered if it was on purpose. They were married on Dec. 30, 1956, in Waukomis. Maggie worked for the Physical Plant Department at Oklahoma State University from 1962 until 1965, when Wilbur graduated. Then she returned to work at OSU in 1978 when Wilbur went to graduate school. She retired as a senior clerk from the OSU Purchasing Department of Accounting. After their retirement in 1996, Maggie and Wilbur lived full-time in their RV for 13 years. They traveled from the Pacific to the Atlantic and from Mexico to Canada. They made many friends in their travels.

Maggie is survived by her husband Wilbur of Graham, Texas, a daughter, Tammy Jo Noland of Waukomis, a grandson, Dean Herbert Noland of Waukomis, a son, Marty Joe Noland of Yukon, two granddaughters, Jessica Faith Noland and Maggie Elizabeth Noland of Stillwater. Others that Maggie considered family are Rachelle Palmer, Isabelle Palmer, Charlie Palmer and Will Palmer, all of Yukon.

Maggie’s remains will be buried in Oakwood Cemetery at Jacksboro, Texas, between her parents. There will be no services. Donations may be made to The Cowboy Church of Young County, Graham, Texas (ccoyc.com).
