Mildred “Milly” McKibben of Yukon, Oklahoma, peacefully departed this earth to reunite with her precious Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on April 2, 2012 at the age of 93. The love of Jesus Christ and her faith in God were the center of her life. Milly lived her faith and always set a wonderful example of being a good "Christian". She was a Bible scholar and taught studies and Sunday school for many years. Milly practiced her Christianity in her daily life, deeds and testimony up until the moment of her death. Milly always had a gracious attitude, never complaining, always looking for joy and gave God the glory. She was very well informed and enjoyed keeping up with sports (especially the Thunder), current events and wanting to hear all about family news. She had a great sense of humor and was always ready with a good giggle. Milly was the sweetest, most loving person and our "Doll" was the best grandmother in the world. Milly was born to Henry and Rose (Selement) Jelinek on the family farm near Bluff City, Kansas on May 7, 1918. She graduated Salutatorian of her high school class in Bluff City. She met the love of her life, Clifford “Cliff” McKibben of Nowata, Oklahoma, while he was working with a travelling roller skating rink. They skated beautifully together. Local residents would come each evening to watch them skate. After a whirlwind courtship, Cliff and Milly were married in Anthony, Kansas on September 30, 1936. In 1938, they celebrated the birth of their only child, Melota Mae (McKibben) Orr. Cliff and Milly moved to Yukon in 1941 where they lived their remaining years. They enjoyed a wonderful and loving life together and looked at each other with love and adoration. They were married for 59 years until Cliff’s death in 1995. Milly, was affectionately called “Doll” by her loved ones. She lived up to that name in every sense of the word. She was adored by her grandchildren and great- grandchildren who loved spending time with her and Cliff at Lake Eufaula. There are wonderful memories of time spent with “Granddad and Doll”. Cliff and Milly were avid water skiers who taught all of their grandchildren to ski. They worked hard together and spent many years happily growing a loving legacy for their family. Milly especially loved her flower gardens that were always beautiful and abundant. After 28 years of dedicated service she retired from Standard Life & Accident. Milly is preceded in death by her husband Cliff and her granddaughter, Brenda (Orr) Mergen. Loving family include her daughter Melota and son-in-law Lloyd “Butch” Orr.
