The following is a quote from Mary in Dec 2007: "Charlie and I owned and operated Dillahunty Electric where he was involved with electrical contracting(commercially) for over 40 years. I worked with him as bookkeeper and office manager.We closed our business in 1997. After brief retirement ( he is one of those people who will NEVER completely retire) he has been working about 20 hours per week as a Quality Control Inspector at Ft. Sill Oklahoma. He says it keeps him up to date on the Construction business which he dearly loves."

Funeral for former Lawton resident Mary E. Dillahunty, 87 Tulsa will be at 2:00 PM Wednesday at Northwest Church of Christ with David Sexton, elder officiating. Mrs. Dillahunty died Saturday, July 7, 2012 in Tulsa from complications due to her battle with renal failure diagnosed in May 2011. Burial will be in Sunset Memorial Gardens under the direction of Becker Funeral Home & Cremation Service. She was born April 19, 1925 to John Robert and Ruth Tabitha Lauderdale in Altus, Oklahoma. She attended Altus High School. She met and married the man to which she truly respected and totally adored, Charlie F. Dillahunty in Mangum, Oklahoma on December 7, 1946. They began their marriage in Lawton before moving back to Mangum in 1947. In 1948 they moved to Altus, then to Lawton again in 1953 where she proudly worked as a devoted housewife and mother. In 1960, she supported her husband's decision to become an electrical contractor and create Dillahunty Electric, Inc. She worked as his secretary and bookkeeper until they agreed to culminate their business and retire in 1997. Mary, with proud devotion, adored being Charlie's spouse; serving as a deacon's wife for 18 years and an elder?s wife for 35 years at Northwest Church of Christ. She preferred shying from the spotlight while enjoying others basking in it; always among the first to assist members sending food during their illness and grief, while sending a gift acknowledging their happiness to wedding and baby showers. Her role of mother, grandmother and great grandmother was her most cherished profession. Anyone who knew her, knew most everything concerning her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She always eagerly shared their life and accomplishments with her church friends. Mary is survived by her two sons: Jim Dillahunty and his wife, Aline and Brent Dillahunty, all of Tulsa, two grandchildren: Memorie Montgomery and her husband, Mickey, both of Tulsa and Gary Dillahunty and his wife, April, of Sapulpa; five great grandchildren: Malynn, Melaina and Mollie Montgomery, of Tulsa and Coleman and Aubrey Dillahunty, of Sapulpa. Mary was preceded in death by her beloved husband, parents, two sisters: Pauline Sullivan and Chris Scratchard and three brothers: Ray, Bill and Joe Lauderdale. The family will greet Mary's friends from 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM Tuesday at the funeral home.
