Etta Auguleen Bryant

February 21, 1915November 18, 2012

Etta Auguleen Moody Bryant   Auguleen Bryant, 97, entered Heaven's gates November 18, 2012. She was born in Fayette, Alabama, February 21, 1915 to Osie Dell (Sims) and Edward Jahue Sullivan. Her family settled in the Slaughterville/Lexington area in 1926 and she became an Okie. On a sunny Sunday afternoon in Slaughterville, Auguleen met her first husband, Howard Lee Moody. They were married September 8, 1934. They lived and worked at McFarlin Methodist Church from 1936-1943. WWII came and she followed Howard to different Army bases while he served his country. After 20 years of marriage and at age 39, she experienced as she called it "going through the change" the birth of her only child, James (Jim) Edward Moody. Auguleen began her career at Southwestern Bell Telephone Co. in 1944 as a telephone operator. For 27 years she was on the other end of the line asking, "Number Please". She is a lifetime member of Telephone Pioneers of America. After a short period of retirement together and 38 years of marriage, Howard passed away. Family was her passion and in 1981 she extended her family when she married Luther Bryant. Their marriage made two families one. They loved to travel and crossed the United States from coast to coast. A keepsake Atlas highlights the roads traveled and provided many great times for reminiscing. Auguleen had an unwavering faith in God. She and Luther were long time members of Bethel Baptist Church where they were active until her health no longer allowed her to attend. There was nothing Auguleen loved more than time with her family. She always looked forward to the annual Moody reunion in Gainseville, Texas, her birthday parties and visits with family. Her grandchildren and great grandchildren were the pride and joy of her life. OU sports were a close second and an enthusiasm she shared with her son. The legacy of Auguleen's zest for life and love of family will live on through her family. She is survived by her husband Luther; Son Jim Moody (Kathy), Step sons, Mark Bryant (Sue) and Greg Bryant (Lori); grandchildren Jennifer Bryan (Bradley), Jeff Moody (Lindsey), Ginger Boles, Jeff Bryant (Megan), Lori Fulce (Josh), Tony Bryant (Chelsea); great-grandchildren Gracey, Andey, Tatum & Porter Bryan, Zoe & Caitlin Boles, Dax Peterson, Ashton & Collin Fulce. She leaves many nieces and nephews that she loved so much. Services will be 10:00AM Wednesday, November 21st at Primrose Funeral Service Chapel in Norman with burial at Norman IOOF Cemetery. The family wishes to thank Loving Care Home Health and Hospice in Noble and her special care giver, Lela Vogle. Your love and gentle touch provided great comfort for her and for us. Our joys will be greater, Our love will be deeper, Our lives will be fuller because we shared your life. Arrangements are entrusted to the care of Primrose Funeral Service.

Auguleen was a very special lady that will truly be missed by many.

My Aunt Auguleen was a very special lady. I remember as a young boy the visits she and Howard made to visit my Dad, Ed Sullivan, Jr. Howard was full of laughter and humor and always made you laugh, but especially Aunt Auguleen who had this way about her that always made you feel special. She cared about you, as she did about all members of her family, biological and extended. And thank you Luther for the gentleness that you have extended to this wonderful lady. The greatest gift, I think, that we could all give her, is to carry her spirit of kindness, tempered with toughness, within each of us to continue her legacy and to tell her story to the young ones so they know the meaning of what a "special lady" truly is. Thank you Aunt Auguleen, I Love You.....

Auguleen was my dad's cousin, and without her I would never have learned much about Dad's family. She told me where my great-grandfather was buried and I was shocked to find it was in Texas within about a 3 hour drive. I will always miss her, and her knowledge of the Sullivan family.

Aunt Auguleen has always been one of the brightest stars in the Sullivan family. She has always been "in charge" and handled everything with ladylike dignity. When my mother died, she said she would be a mother to me when I needed one. She only had the one son, but many children. She will be greatly missed.
