Sue Dollins

 Sue Dollins, 79, of Stillwater passed from this life on Aug. 22, 2013. Services have been entrusted to the care of Palmer Marler Funeral Home and a service celebrating her life will be held at 10 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 26 at the Palmer Marler Funeral Home Chapel in Stillwater with interment following at Star Valley Cemetery in Chandler.

Carolyn Sue was born on Dec. 16, 1933, to Jay and Lillian (Brewer) Getman in Kendrick. She grew up and attended schools in the Kendrick area, but her family relocated to Oklahoma City during her high school years.  In 1960, Sue married the love of her life, Frank Dollins, and the couple moved to Stillwater where Sue attended beauty school. Sue graduated from beauty school and went to work for a local salon before eventually opening a salon in her home on 12th Street. In 1980, she closed her home salon and began an 11-year career as an administrative assistant at Grace Living Center in Stillwater.

 In 1991, Sue retired to a life of fishing, bowling, golf and enjoying life with Frank. She was a member of the Lakeside Golf Course women’s league and the Stillwater Bowling League, where she held the title of league secretary. She enjoyed gardening and traveling all over the northern and western United States with her husband. She was never happier than when she was with her family, especially her nieces and nephews. Sue was an outgoing and fun-loving woman who was both frugal and generous. Her 79 years here on earth impacted the lives of many people and she will be greatly missed by all those whom she called friends.

Sue Dollins was preceded in death by her parents;  siblings Earl Weaver, John Goodenough, Jane Snyder and Edith Weyant. She is survived by her husband, Frank, of the home; siblings Ethel Stalik, Sharon Heath and Orville Goodenough as well as many nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Sue’s name to the OK Medical Research Foundation in care of Palmer Marler Funeral Home 5106 N. Washington, Stillwater, OK, 74075.

Condolences may be sent to the family via an online guestbook at www.pmcfh.com.
