Martha Hazel Lightfoot passed away in her home on August 13, 2023. She was born on January 11, 1944 in Marlow, Oklahoma. She was proceeded in death by her husband and soul-mate, Frank Lightfoot; her brother, Doyle Braden, and her mother, Vera Rouse. Martha, or “Nanny” as she was known affectionately by her grandchildren is survived by her three children, Monty (Leslie) Lightfoot, Alton (Tammy) Lightfoot, and Tisha Cline, as well as her five grandchildren; Casie (Ethan) Lightfoot, Kristie (Steve) Peck, Guy (Krystal) Lightfoot, Dillon (Shannon) Lightfoot, Tandy (Austin) Brazeau; ten great-grandchildren: Hunter Peck, Bailey Peck, Kashlyn Peck, Rylance Butler, Rowen Rae, Evie Rae, Kinsey Rea, Jett Lightfoot, Arlene Stodghill, and soon to arrive, Myla Lightfoot; as well as her best friend, Sue Milam.
Unlike the quintessential mother or grandmother, Nanny was known for being feisty, stubborn, independent, and for always living life on her own terms. She was an amazing seamstress, loved romance novels, and the color purple. She had a penchant for turquoise and Dr. Pepper, the mouth of a sailor, and the disposition of a spitfire. She smoked like a freight train, loved to two-step, told you what she thought without reservation or filter and told you where to go if you didn’t like it. She loved her family above all else and did so with loyalty and ferociousness.
This past weekend Nanny was able to exit this world, leaving a body that was filled with pain, and finally reunite with her soul-mate, something she’s been waiting to do for over 40 years. We will all miss her tremendously but we know that she and Frank are ‘tearing up a rug’ two-stepping. Let’s all just cross our fingers that her filter works better in Heaven than here. With love and gratitude for the time we did have, the entire Lightfoot family.
A Memorial Service will be hosted by the family in November 2023.
