Hallie Lucille Hokett was born september 3, 1914 near Granite, Oklahoma to Gabriel Ardell and Delilah Ann Elizabeth (Howard) Sewell. When she was about four-years-old, the family moved by wagon across what is now Lake Altus to the old homeplace next to Mt. Tepee. Hallie attended the little one-room Mt. Tepee schoolhouse just down the road.
At school, Hallie met her future husband Johnnie Albert Hokett when she was nine years old. She said, "That's the boy I'm gonna marry!" They were married October 11, 1931 by Uncle Bert Winters on the Red River with mules Kate and Beck as their witnesses. To this union were born six children who survive, David Lee Hokett and wife Winn of San Antonio, Texas, Ray Lynn Hokett of Del City, Oklahoma, Anson Ardell Hokett and wife Judith of Tuscon, Arizona, Judy Ann Signorelli and husband George of Altus, Oklahoma, Janice Hokett of Magdalena, New Mexico, and James Allen Hokett and wife Cat also of Magdalena, New Mexico. Also surviving are 12 grandchildren; 27 great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandson; and numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Johnnie; five brothers, Vadus, Gorman, Bailey, Clarence and Anson; three sisters, Winnie, Nannie and Rosalee.
Hallie never knew a stranger and was ready to help anyone who needed help. She baked animal cakes for her grandchildren and many other children. She taught Sunbeams and worked with children in Sunday School and Church for many years. Hallie made doll clothes, animal pillows and quilts for so many people. Her handiwork is scattered around the world.
Hallie loved her Lord, accepting Him as her Savior as a young adult.
Hallie loved to bake BNB (banana nut bread) for her friends and neighbors. She took food to the sick, bereaved and the unfortunate. Hallie was a good mother, wife, friend and Grandmother. She helped on the ranch, farm and even at the service station with her husband. She was an exceptional homemaker and was ready to "pitch in" on any job or chore to take care of her family. She loved everyone and everyone loved her back. Hallie will be sorely missed by the many who knew and loved her.
