Trefana (Trudy) Masoner

April 13, 1933 — Sept. 16, 2013

DUNCAN — Trefana (Trudy) Masoner, 80, lifelong resident of Duncan went to be with her Lord and Savior on Sept. 16, 2013, in Lawton.

Funeral services will be 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 19 at New Hope Baptist West Church with Rev. Randy Southerland and her cousin, Paul Calmes of Shawnee officiating. Burial will follow at Duncan Cemetery under the direction of Don Grantham Funeral Home.

The family will receive family and friends from 5-7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 18 at the funeral home.

Trefana was born on April 13, 1933, in Duncan, the daughter of J. B. and Pearl Driskill. Trefana was a 1951 graduate of Duncan High School. She also attended OBU in Shawnee. On Jan. 2, 1954, she married the love of her life, J. C. Masoner.

Trefana retired from Halliburton in 1994 after 40 years of dedicated loyal service in various finance departments. She was very active in her church, community and loved sharing her talents with others. Trefana owned Stained Glass by Trefana and she took pride in teaching stained glass classes.

She loved all kinds of hand work and was a perfectionist at all her hobbies. She loved the art of hand quilting and joined a group of ladies for quilting weekly. The group was named the Tuesday Quilters and this group is still active today. She entered numerous quilt shows and won many awards from Oklahoma City to Houston. Trefana loved to teach others how to quilt and taught quilting classes.

She was active in genealogy. She researched all the ancestry of four sides of the family and has many binders with all the history documented with pictures. She held offices in the National Society Daughter Duncan Chapter and American Revolution and National Society Daughters of the American Colonists Duncan Chapter.

She loved gardening and canning. She and J. C. loved traveling, going to the lake, camping, fishing and water skiing.  

Trefana’s greatest gift was her love for others and living a Godly life. She taught all ages in Sunday school and various Bible study groups. She loved being able to share Gods word. Her passion was for children and having parties at her country home. The kids loved to come out and enjoy cookouts, swinging from a tree across the creek, hay rides and swimming.  

Trefana was an active member of New Hope Baptist Church West. She loved Brother Randy and attending church. After moving to assisted living, she would ask the residents to attend church with her. It saddened her when she was not able to attend church due to health problems. She faithfully tuned into Sunday morning worship service conducted by Brother Randy on the radio every Sunday morning.  

Trefana is survived by her daughter, Karen and husband Bobby King of Duncan, a granddaughter Kaylin Hart and husband Shelby, of Montoursville, Penn. and two step-granddaughters Jennifer Irwin and husband Scott of Spring, Texas and Rebecca Lewis of Marlow.

She is also survived by two sisters, Lenora Sawyer of Edmond and Sue Jones and husband Tom of Oklahoma City and numerous nieces and nephews and cousins.

Serving as pallbearers will be Sammye Amerson, Randy Martin, Chuck Mullins, Joe Schwartz, Ken Jenkins, Roland Gay, Grady Underwood and Danny Ford.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions are made to New Hope Baptist Church West, 200 S. 42nd, Duncan, OK 73533 or Chisholm Trail Hospice, P.O. Box 2000, Duncan, OK 73534.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
