Billie Sue (Knight) Stanbro was born the youngest of six children on February 1, 1935 to Oren and May (Barrett) Knight in Sapulpa , OK. She was taken from us all too soon on July 23, 2009 at the age of 74 in Guthrie, OK.

She is survived by her husband, Joe of Guthrie; daughter, Andrea Stanbro of Oklahoma City; daughter, Leslye (Stanbro) Ferrell and husband Tim of Houston, TX; son, Dr. Peter Brent Stanbro of Boston, MA; and son, John Stanbro of Guthrie. Grandchildren include Valynn (Ferrell) Dennin and husband Michael, Cory Ferrell and wife Alisha, Matthew Ferrell and Darnell Ferrell, all of Houston. Billie met Joe while in school at Inola and became high school sweethearts. After graduating from Inola in 1953, she attended Draughns Business College and worked at Metropolitan Life Insurance in Tulsa. In 1959, while Joe was on leave from the Air Force, he and Billie married in Tulsa. On January 1, 2009, they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. Billie was a military wife, traveling the world, which took her to Incirlik, Turkey, North Carolina, Georgia, Texas, as well as Oklahoma. After retirement, Joe and Billie first settled in Tahlequah, OK and later moved to Guthrie, where they have spent the last 14 years. She loved being a wife, mother and grandmother and enjoyed quilting and antiquing.

Billie is also survived by brother, Don Knight and wife Sue of Inola; sister, Jackie Redden of Houston; and brother, Oren Knight of Claremore.

Billie is preceded in death by her parents; brother, Robert; and sister, Jeanne (Knight) Boydston. A memorial will be held in Guthrie at Community Church, I-35 and Seward Road, at 1:00 pm, Tuesday, July 28, 2009
