Elener Agner Waggoner

Jan. 16, 1920 — Feb. 4, 2014

MARLOW — Elener Agner Waggoner, 94, passed away Sunday, Feb. 2, 2014, in Marlow.

Service will be at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 9, at the First Church of the Nazarene in Marlow, with the Rev. Nick Ward officiating. Service will be under direction of Callaway-Smith-Cobb Funeral Home in Marlow.

Elener was born Jan. 16, 1920, in Ames, to Alva and Tracy Waggoner. He attended Waukomis High School and then served in World War II as a sergeant in the United States Army, serving in the Middle East in Libya. During his service he was awarded the World War II Victory Ribbon, Good Conduct Medal, American Theater Ribbon, American Defense Service Ribbon and the EAME Theater Ribbon. He was discharged Dec. 26, 1945.

After the war, he worked on his parents farm in Medford, and later on his own farm in Newkirk. Later he was employed at Mitchell and Mitchell Warehouse in Marlow as an engineer.

On Jan. 15, 1955, he married Nina Lee Tims of Marlow. They lived in the Marlow area since 1958.

Elener was an expert gardener on a massive scale in his spare time and also took pride caring for lawns across the city. He was a churchman in every sense of the word, serving on the board at the Marlow Church of the Nazarene. Through the years he served in various capacities including boys class Sunday school teacher, usher, treasurer, and any capacity he was asked.

Those who knew him remarked on his attitude of gratitude and humor, his “green thumb” and his consistent walk with the Lord. He made it a practice to read the Bible through no less than three times a year, continuing even in the last six years of his life. In fact, he wore out three Bibles since living at Gregstons.

Survivors include son, Timothy Roy Waggoner and wife Dixie of Marlow; grandson, Timothy Lee Waggoner and wife Robin and their two daughters; granddaughters: Cheyenne and Annalee Waggoner; sister, Wilma Clark of Waukomis. He also leaves behind nieces: Marilyn Olson of Oklahoma City, Madelyn Campbell of Bethany; and nephews: Montie Tims of Grandbury, Texas, and Roger Tims of Northern California.

He was preceded in death by wife, Nina Lee; and brothers: Darvin and Nathan.

Memorial contributions may be made to the First Church of the Nazarene in Marlow.
