1922 - 2018 Obituary Condolences
March 28, 1922 - Jan. 7, 2018 OKLAHOMA CITY Mary Edna Liston, 95, was born on March 28, 1922, in Foster, OK to John Franklin and Minnie Edna (Tussy) Littrell. She passed away with her family by her side on Jan. 7, 2018, in Oklahoma City. A proud citizen of the Chickasaw Nation, Mario found great joy in family gatherings, playing countless games and being with all of her grandchildren. She married the love of her life, Charles Robert Liston, and they were blessed with four children. As a farmer's wife, she always did what needed to be done: cooking the meals, cleaning the clothes, and loving her family in all ways. She often referenced Ecclesiastes 11:1 when speaking of her children and grandchildren: "Cast your bread on the surface of the waters, for you will find it after many days." She always said that she cast her bread on the waters and was blessed to get back strawberry shortcake! Mary's love for her family was only exceeded by her love for her Lord. She faithfully served the community of the Antioch Christian Church and administered God's love at every opportunity. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; and one sister, Ruth Helen Tussy. She is survived by her sons, Don Liston & wife Dorothy and Lyn Liston & wife Carol; daughters, Kay Smith & husband Buddy and Sue Hawkins & husband Jack; grandchildren, Dean Liston, Dewayne Liston, Dawnita Liston, Marty Greenway, Chuck Boucher, Chase Liston, Justin Liston, Kent Hawkins, Lisa Chronister, and Michael Hawkins; nine great-grandchildren; as well as extended family and friends. Services to Celebrate Mary's Life will be held Today, 2 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 9, 2018, at South Lakes Chapel, 4000 SW 119th St., with burial to follow at Resthaven Memory Gardens.
