Atoka County: The Indian Citizen-Democrat, Thursday, November 2, 1967

Martha Ann (BEAR) ATTEBERRY, born April 2, 1876 near Iberia, Miller County, Missouri, the daughter of Absalom and Mary Catherine (SPEARMAN) Bear and the fourth of then children.
The Bears moved from Ohio and the Spearmans from Tennessee to Missouri in the early 1800's. Martha finished the academy at Iberia, then taught school in Miller County a few years prior to going to Indian Territory in 1904 as a teacher through the Indian Agency. She taught at Krebs (near McAlester), near Durant, and in Atoka County at Balls Chapel (now Valley View) and last at Old Standing Rock. She married Frank M. Atteberry at Lehigh in 1907. The mother of three daughters and three sons, she was a tireless and devoted mother who asked no odds and gave none. She was always ready and willing to help others which she often did. A devout Christian, she loved children. Unassuming, yet, willing and ready to counsel others. Articulate on politics and religion. She enjoyed good health all of her life except for a brief period in the middle 20's. She could ride a horse well at 80, and at 91, she was still preparing most of her own meals and participating in general house work. She enjoyed life and played hard and by the rules. I seriously suspect that in later years she did much regret that she did not devote her life to education and philosophy. Except for the years 1917, 23, and 28, she was a resident of Atoka County her entire married life, and lived 43 of those years on the same place in the Standing Rock Community. In February, 1963 she moved with her husband to live with their daughter, Norma HABERMAN in Vallejo, California. Soon thereafter, in May, 1963 her husband died. Then in a very short time, her youngest daughter, Gretchen, came to live with her and Norma in Vallejo. That arrangement continued until August, 1966 when Gretchen, because of a change of employment, moved to San Jose, CA. Then, in July, 1967, she made her home with her son, Doyle and his wife Penny , at Napa, CA where she resided until the time of her death. She showed evidence of weakness and loss of stability on Tuesday, September the 12th and worsened on the following day. Although much improved, she was taken to the Richmond General Hospital Thursday the 14th for a physical examination. The examination disclosed that she had suffered a light stroke. After entry into the hospital, she commenced having a series of light strokes periodically which the doctor could not prevent. Her short period of illness in the hospital was with excellent care and was little suffering or pain. She died quietly on November 1, 1967 at 2:57 p.m. She now resides peacefully in Heaven.
She is survived by two daughters Norma Atteberry Haberman and Gretchen Atteberry THOMAS and two sons Orval Atteberry and Doyle Atteberry. A grandson, Donald , Granddaughters, Arlene Fauncille Haberman Kirgan, Mrs. Dorothy Atteberry GOUCHER, a nd Mrs. Peggy Atteberry MASON. Three great grandchildren, the daughter and two sons of Mrs. KIRGAN and one sister Zella. Submitted by: Ruth Adams adamssec@qni.com County Host Of OKGenWeb Atoka County
