Margie M. Maze was born March 29, 1925 on the Dancer Farm near Caney, Kansas to Harold A and Artie Pond Winget. She moved with her parents and siblings to Oklahoma as her father started working for the ITIO Oil Company and then for the Cities Service Oil Company. They lived in the Atlantic Field area and in the Wynona area. Margie graduated from Wynona High School. She went to school with Clifford O. Maze and they were married in 1945 in Newkirk, Oklahoma. They made their home near Pawhuska, Oklahoma for about 2 years and then moved to Arkansas City, Kansas. They lived there for 14 years. Then Margie and her children moved to the Bartlesville, Oklahoma area and lived here the rest of her life. Margie went to work for Phillips Petroleum in 1964 and retired from Phillips in 1982.
Margie was a very good student and a good athlete, playing for the basketball, volleyball and baseball teams at Wynona. She was an avid sports fan all her life loving the SF 49's, Boston Celtics and SF Dodgers and was an adamant OU Football fan. "God Family and Country" was her motto.. She loved her children, grandchildren, great-grands and was happy being with them. She loved her "In-Law" side of her family, too, and relished the time she spent with them.
She loved to travel and visit America and her family members. After she retired, she was able to be a "Wednesday Cook" for many years at Bartlesville Southern Baptist Church and this was a joy to her. Her yard and the beauty of it became her 2nd occupation after she retired. She loved her friends and never forgot them.
She was preceded in death by her son, Arthur C. Maze and her parents, her brothers, Glenn and Keith Winget and her sisters Mary Clevenger and Charlene Havenar. One sister remains of her family, Iris Winget Brown and her sisters in law Barbara Winget, Velma Davidson, Irmagene Parks, Betty Hinton and brother in law Paul Agnell and many nieces and nephews. She leaves behind her children, Darlene Powell, Bartlesville, Edward and Maria Maze, Bakersfield, CA and Chuck and Mary Maze, Bartlesville. Grandchildren Amy and Todd Jensen, Ann Sirman, Shallan and Randy John, Sara Gillman, Jordan and Jennifer Powell, Joseph and Lindsay Powell, Angela Hamilton, Charles and Brenda Maze, Frank and Becky Maze, Vincent Maze, Ashley Roberts, Desi Roberts, Sabel and Derrick Sisney, Mariah Maze and Kaitlin Maze and 29 great-grand children. She is so very missed. Friends who wish may sign the online guest book and leave condolences at www.stumpff.org.
