Margie Mae Callison Flournoy passed away on October 7, 2017 at the age of 93.
She was born on July 1, 1924 to Eri and Gertie Mae Callison of Pryor,
OK the seventh of eleven children. Margie lived life "Her way."
Whether sneaking out as a teen with her brother, Hoop to see Bob Wills
and The Texas Playboys at the Cain's ballroom, stopping for a street
photographer in Denver, or working as a telephone operator in Muskogee
during WWII, she was always up to something. Even trying to stitch up
her brother's head from an accidental whack while digging potatoes,
at least until their Mom caught her. She was always quick with the quips
until her last breath. The Dr. asked her if she smoked and drank, and
how much? She replied, "Yes, but it depended on who she was with.”
She is survived by her siblings, Eugene Callison, Pryor and Louise Sisk,
Houston; her children, Bonnie Masterson, Tulsa, Linda Bryson,and husband
Kelly, Broken Arrow, George Flournoy, Tom Flournoy, Tulsa, and Richard
Flournoy, Park Hill; grandchildren, Alisa Dougless, Tulsa, Whitney Hostetter,
Broken Arrow, Zac Bryson, Tulsa, Benjamin Bryson, Owasso, Nathan Bryson,

Muskogee, and Don Flournoy, North Carolina; and great grandchildren, Noah
and Jonah Hostetter, Broken Arrow, Maxwell and Riley Bryson, Broken Arrow,
Karter Flournoy, Tulsa, and extended families. She was preceded in death
by her parents; 8 siblings and 3 stepchildren including Vivian Flournoy
Farmer. She spent the last four years of her life at The Villages of Southern
Hills Tulsa where she lived in complete comfort and caring attention.
She was a beautiful, feisty woman. An avid reader, fashion conscious,
junk food loving Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Sister, Aunt
and friend. She loved her nickname "Audi" given by her Granddaughter,
Alisa, as a baby who wanted to call her Margie, but could only say "Audi."
"Audi" will be missed.
