Francine McQuietor-Morris Obituary

Francine McQuietor-Morris was born in Saginaw, Michigan on June 25, 1946, to the late Levi and Fannie McQuietor. After several years the family relocated to Hugo, Oklahoma.

Francine attended Cuney Booker T. Washington. The education that she obtained at Booker T, prepared her for the education she was to obtain later in life. At the age of 5, Francine was introduced to the church of Christ by her grandmother, the late Carrie Tramble. She truly loved the Lord and was an Avid church goer and dedicated member of her church. 

In 1968 Francine married Jimmy Morris and to this union three children were born: Roslin, Reginald and Felisha. She loved her family and was very protective of her children. Just as she had been introduced to the Lord, she did the same for her children, making sure they were in church every Sunday and attended Bible study. 

Francine put the C in the word Classy. She enjoyed looking good whether she was wearing a T shirt and shorts or dressed to the nines you could always count on her to look her best She was beautiful both inside and out. Her hobbies were cooking, cleaning, listening to all music, gardening, sewing and writing poetry. Her favorite times of the year was Thanksgiving and Christmas. She loved those family holidays and she really liked receiving gifts. 

In the late 70’s Francine received a certification from the Kiamichi Votech as a nurse’s aide. This gave her joy as she enjoyed helping people. After all her children were grown, she decided to attend ET Dunlap majoring in Psychology. Once her health started to fail, she decided to work within her community. Francine helped establish the Washington Community center and served as president for 25 years. She served on multiple boards in Hugo as well as Choctaw County. She loved working within her community. Deciding that Hugo needed some improvements; she then decided to become a politician and was the first African American woman to sit on the City Council in Hugo representing Ward 2. She served in this capacity for 15 years. She also served as Vice Mayor during this time. 

Francine’s Motto was: “Give me my flowers while I live, don’t wait until I cannot see or smell them.”
