A native Tulsan for 92 years,
Agnes Ellen Morey Shofner,
passed away on Saturday, September
29, 2012. Agnes was born
on June 24th, 1920 to Ernest and
Myrtle Gilbert Morey. She was
the youngest of four children, all
brothers. She attended Irving Elementary
School and graduated,
with honors, at the age of 16 from
Central High School, Class of 1936.
She was greatly disappointed
when her father would not permit
her to attend OSU like her brothers. Instead
she graduated from secretarial school. Her
typing skills and dedication to her work made
her a valued legal secretary for over 50 years.
Agnes Morey eloped with Jack Shofner in
1942. She was known for her pie crust, potatoes
au gratin and chocolate chip cookies.
She and Jack square danced, traveled extensively
and were members of the AOK camping
club. She attended Victory for years and
made contributions to many organizations.
Agnes was the last of her generation, preceded
in death by her parents, brothers, and
husband. Agnes is survived by her
children and their spouses; Jim
and Renita Shofner, Jackie Sue
and Jim Alspaugh of Oklahoma
City, and JoAnn Shofner, then her
