To The Latting Family: We offer our sympathy, thoughts and prayers. My father was Marvin Sewell. He was born and raised in Granite, OK. His parents names were Tilden Anderson Sewell and Martha Sewell. Don't know the lineage, but told that my dad and Patience were distant cousins. You can reach me at 722-6788 if you have information of the connection or need more information. My mom, Golden Garlow Sewell spoke highly of Patience. Cheryl Sewell Taylor
Mayor Latting was one of my mentors in my early years of teaching and coaching. Later I was honored to teach her daughters, an incredible lady and she will be greatly missed by all who came in contact with her.

Thanks for your dedication and professionalism to our city, Mayor Latting, you inspired me to a lifelong interest in government and civics.
My sincere condolences to Mayor Latting's family. As policy analyst to the Mayor and City Council, Mayor Latting was my first supervisor. She did so much for the City of Oklahoma City and helped me understand the importance of good governing by local elected officials. I am so proud to have worked with her.
I'm sorry, I forgot to put my name!
Dear Nancy and family,
All my prayers are with you and your family with the loss of your mom, a wonderful, inspirational woman I have known for 60 years (all the way back to our Edgemere days and living in the "original" Edgemere Heights!
Mayor Latting was the first mayor I got to know as a city hall reporter for The Oklahoman. I admired her for her strength, courage and humanity. We became friends, partly because we both worked in professions dominated by men. She was my inspiration for more then 35 years. My prayers go out to her family.
Dear Nancy and family,
We feel your loss. I have fond memories of being in your home in high school. Your mother was always so cheerful and friendly, a wonderful woman. She will be missed by all of us. Carol Meeks McPheeters
Fran Latting Wilson was the daughter of Patience, and Fran was my best friend. Cynthia and Robin are Fran's daughters and I have known them,Cynthia and Robin, since they were born. I send all my love to all the children and grand children of dear Patience Latting. A wonderful woman, mother and lady. My Condolences to you all.
We are so lucky to have had such a wonderful example of how a public official should serve her constituents. I had the privilege of being a visitor in her home when in college and she was a true lady, very warm and friendly. My prayers are with her family. She will be missed.
What a wonderful woman. I had the pleasure of being a friend. Rest in peace.
What a great and classy lady!
I have had the honor of meeting Mayor Latting many times. She was always very friendly, had a smile, and remembered my name. I will always admire her, remember her, and grieve for our loss. It is a very sad day. she accomplished one thing no woman will ever accomplish again. Being the first woman of a major city to be elected Mayor. I know she will be as sweet and kind in heaven as she was on earth. May you rest in peace Mayor. It was an honor to know you.
Jim, I write with deep sympathy for your loss. She did indeed make us proud to be from Oklahoma City.
