Obituary for Ozella McKenzie

Ozella Pickens McKenzie passed away Wednesday morning on August 28, 2013 at the home of her granddaughter Dorthy and Lesley Kilgore in Mangum, Oklahoma.

Ozella was born June 27, 1927 to Pershon and Essie Hendricks in Kilgore, Texas. Ozella married the love of her life, LC Pickens in 1945. During her life, Ozella was a homemaker, and devoted her life to being a mother to her son Carl. She loved fishing, hunting, gardening, and caring for her pets.

Ozella is survived by one sister, Mary Belle Davis; grandchildren, Katie Kilgore, Velma Pickens, Carl Pickens Jr., Rachel Palmer, Shane Palmer, Mary Ann Francis and James Palmer; six great grandchildren, Dayven Pickens, Donaven Pickens, Daychja Pickens, Alexus Bartlett, Heavenly Pickens, Stanley Pickens; several nieces and nephews, Martha Skinner, Ralph Davis, Elizabeth Lee, Nathaniel Davis, Sevila Smith, Mary Jackson, Linda Davis, David Davis, Robert Dale Hendricks, William Hendricks, Bertha Spencer, Wanda Hendricks, and Jonhetta Williams along with a host of great nieces, great nephews and other close friends and relatives.
