Obituary for Johnnie Grimm

Johnnie Mae Grimm, longtime Cushing resident, passed away Friday morning, November 15, 2019 in her residence at the age of 85 years.
The daughter of the late John R. Forbis and Sylvia Elling Forbis, Johnnie was born on April 7, 1934 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. While growing up on a farm, she was raised and educated in Cashion, Oklahoma graduating from Cashion High School.
She was united in marriage to Artie Grimm on March 1, 1953 in Cashion, Oklahoma. The couple bought their farm in 1960 and raised their four children, Cherie, Theresa, Martie and Daren, there at the family farm. The couple had been married for over 63 years before Artie’s death in March of 2016.
Johnnie Mae worked for Opal’s in downtown Cushing for over 20 years and took great pride in serving her customers.
She was a longtime member of the Calvary Baptist Church and the Oak Grove Baptist Church; she enjoyed playing the piano, singing gospel music, canning, and working in her garden. She will be remembered for being a great cook, preparing many meals for her family, friends and neighbors. She was a mother to her children as well as a mother to many other family members and neighbors.
One of Johnnie Mae's fondest joys was seeing herself in the Terrell Siding commercials after having her house remodeled. She will be remembered for taking in injured animals. On one occasion, she took in a pair of injured piglets that she named Poly and Ester. She took polyester thread to stitch their wounds, then bottle fed them, and later ended up in a skillet helping her feed her multitudes.
She is survived by her children, Cherie Sneed of Stillwater, Theresa Martin and Lisa Jackson of Cushing, Martie Grimm of Cushing and Daren and Leda Grimm of Cushing; one sister Pat Barton of Edmond; one brother Jack Forbis of Tulsa; her grandchildren, JJ Sneed, Eric Martin, Megan Ditty and her husband Michael, Levi Grimm, Dakota Grimm and his wife Molly, Jesse Grimm, Ruger Grimm, Derek Fuller and his wife Tor, Davis Sneed, Jr., Debbie Meeks, Chad Sneed and Julie Fagan; great-grandchildren, Blakely, River, Broden, Colt, Reed and Charley; several nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.
In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by one sister Marvonne Farrell; one great-grandson Caiden Sneed and one son-in-law David Sneed.
Funeral services will be held Thursday, November 21, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. in the Calvary Baptist Church with Pastor Mark Skinner officiating.
Burial will follow in the Euchee Valley Memorial Park Cemetery.
