Dora Dean Stockon peacefully went to her home in Heaven Saturday morning, January 29, 2011. She was surrounded by her beloved husband, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
As expressed by her family, Dora’s most enduring quality was her selflessness. Dora consistently placed the needs of her family above her own. Her heart’s desire was to provide for and nurture her children and grandchildren and see them grow into persons of character. This desire was evidently realized when Dora saw her own values mirrored in her children and grandchildren.
Dora is described as humble but dignified, nurturing but strong-willed. There was comfort and warmth in the touch of her hand. By her hands, her family was clothed, and with her hands she fervently prayed for her family.
Dora was born May 30, 1929 in Osage, Oklahoma to Lewis LaFayette Powell and Rosa May McAmis. Survivors are her husband Gerald Eugene Stockon, eight children, Patrician Ann Green and her husband Clyde of Cushing, Oklahoma, Garland Rex Hecox and his wife Susan of West Siloam, Oklahoma, Billie Raymond Hecox, Jr. and Deborah of Kansas, Oklahoma, Debbie Louise Jacobs and her husband Leon of Aledo, Texas, Pamela Jane Atkinson and her husband Rick of Aledo, Texas, Sherry Kay Peredes and her husband Michael of Aledo, Texas, and Candance Lynn Lang and her husband Paul of Fort Worth, Texas; thirty-two grandchildren; fort-four great grandchildren; and one great, great grandchild.
In addition to her parents, Dora was preceded in death by her three brothers Walter Raymond Powell, John Delbert Powell, and Louis A. Powell; her three sisters Goldie May Hunt, Sylvia Naomi Taylor, and Betty Jo Crain; her daughter Twilla Sue Hecox; her grandson Kirstopher Layne McBrayer; and her great-granddaughter Jayden Danielle Gonzales.
