Yukon, OK

"Memorial service for Patsy Ann Noland Hammert will be Wednesday, February 7th at 11am at First Presbyterian Church, El Reno, under the direction of Wilson Funeral Home. She died on February 2, 2024 at her home in Yukon. Patsy was born December 12, 1941, in Anadarko, Okla., to Taylor Harding Noland and Gertrude Deatherage Noland. Graduating in 1959 from Anadarko High School, she then attended Capitol Business School and was employed as claims clerk and later as executive secretary for the president of Union Bankers Insurance Company in Oklahoma City. She married her high school sweetheart, John Andrew Hammert, on February 18, 1961, in Chickasha. Their son was born in 1967 and their daughter in 1970. The couple moved from Oklahoma City to El Reno in 1976 to farm and ranch south of Binger. She was a stay-at-home mom until becoming school secretary at Hillcrest Elementary while keeping books for the farm and ranch business. During that time she attended El Reno Junior College and then Central State University. Graduating SummaCum Laude with a bachelor’s degree in newspaper journalism, Pat earned the Kappa Tau Alpha top scholar award. She was hired as editor of the Bethany Tribune Review in Bethany before working for the El Reno Tribune as a reporter. For almost two decades as a staff writer, she spent her days covering El Reno government, its schools, county news and its people. From horse shows to quilting clubs and farmhands to local politicians, she wrote and photographed their stories. Although it was small town news, she never considered it small time news. She was a member of the Oklahoma Press Association, the Oklahoma Freedom of Information and the Society of Professional Journalists. She was a longtime member and ruling elder of El Reno First Presbyterian Church. When the first of her two granddaughters was born in 2005, she proudly became “Bamma.” After retiring from The Tribune, she became an undaunted genealogy researcher and could get lost in digging up dead ancestors in her search for truths. A life long, voracious reader, she loved being involved in her El Reno book club. She moved to Yukon in 2017 to be near her daughter and granddaughters and worked in her son’s Oklahoma City law office, Hammert Law. In 2018, Pat co-authored with her brother-in-law, Pete, a book entitled Secondhand Cowboys with stories of early-day Anadarko and the Hammert family. She was preceded in death by her husband of 36 years and the love of her life, John. Survivors include the lights of her life, her accomplished son, John Kord Hammert of Oklahoma City and her shining daughter, Holly Ann Connolly and husband, Mark Connolly, and the granddaughter Adorables, the brave Madigan Rooney Glenn and the fierce Reagan Charlotte Glenn, with grandson, Dalton Connolly, all of Yukon; her loyal and true brother Billy Harding Noland and sister-in-law Linda, of Oklahoma City; brother-in-law Pete Hammert of Anadarko; three special nieces and their families, beloved cousins Ruthella Hoelscher and Mary Ann Flanagan; and a host of friends."

"Burlynn Conner, Jr., of Yukon, known affectionately as Lynn passed away on January 21, 2024, leaving behind a legacy of love, laughter, and a life well-lived. Lynn was born on October 8, 1941, in El Reno, Oklahoma. He was a 1959 graduate of El Reno High School. A genuine passion for family, adventure, and helping others marked his journey through life. Lynn’s hands were his tools, capable of fixing anything that came his way. His garage, a haven of order with meticulously labeled tools, reflected his skill and craftsmanship. Having graduated from Metallurgy school at Oklahoma State University in 1963, he devoted most of his adult life to being a draftsman, showcasing his education and precision in his profession. Family meant the world to Lynn. Some of the fondest memories were made sitting around with his siblings and their spouses, engaged in a lively Conner card game. His quick wit and fast-paced playing style made every gathering with him a memorable experience. Lynn was the kind of person who never met a stranger. Known for stopping to help those stranded on the side of the road. He welcomes strangers into is life, never knowing who might become a new friend. Lynn’s life was marked with his passion for family, adventure, helping others and his faith. He embraced the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and shared his learning by teaching the Gospel. A true adventurer, Lynn had a passion for all things that moved. From planes and motorcycles and carried his family on countless journeys to his fascination with cars and boats, he approached life with a spirit of exploration. His belief in hard work was unwavering and he expected everyone to rise and shine early in the morning, a phrase that became a familiar refrain in the Conner household, with a smile. Though often adorned with corny jokes, Lynn’s sense of humor brought joy to those around him. He had a knack for finding and sharing new jokes, always looking to brighten the room with laughter. He had a curious spirit, always searching for something just out of reach, we his children, hope that he has finally found what he was seeking. As we bid farewell to our beloved father, we remember the joy he brought to our lives and the lessons he imparted. May his adventurous spirit and love for life be a lasting legacy. And may he rest in peace, having the serenity he sought. Lynn was preceded in death by his parents, Burl and Claudys Conner, Sister, Grace Ann Conner, and Brother, Ron Conner.
