It is with great sadness that the family of Dee Chloe Stinnett announces her passing, after battling a barrage of health concerns, on Sunday, February 25, 2018, at the age of 83 years young.
Dee Chloe will be forever remembered by her loving family for being everything from a Mother to a Grandma to a Dear Friend for an endless list of friends and neighbors where she and James had made their home in Enid, Oklahoma, since 1977.
Dee Chloe Huffine Stinnett was born one magical morning on January 17, 1935, south of Cement, Oklahoma, along with her identical twin sister, Ema Jo Huffine Nix, to Dee Huffine and Eula Spears Huffine.
Dee Chloe grew up in the small town of Cyril, Oklahoma, along with one brother and three sisters. She married the love of her life James Leo Stinnett on January 21, 1950, and to that union three children were born.
Dee Chloe enjoyed the Navy life with her husband James for nearly thirty years, traveling the world before retiring and settling down in Enid, Oklahoma.
Dee Chloe experienced many things in her life including her love for lap dogs (Troy, Benny, Missy, Sam, Chancy, just to name a few) who loved to be hand-fed and cared for in the most loving way. Some of the dogs would take a finger off if you got to close to Mom, but we all loved them just as much as Dee did.
Dee Chloe and James have collected lots of things in their travels and have left a heck of a lot of stuff their kids are not quite sure what to do with including a very large collection of nutcrackers and numerous boxes full of national geographic magazines dating back to the sixties...
Dee Chloe is preceded in death by her parents, along with her twin sister Ema Jo Huffine Nix of Cyril, OK, and one brother Alton Huffine of Sherman, TX.
