Beloved mother, "Grammye," sister and aunt, Dannye Sue Domnick (75) of Tulsa, Oklahoma went to Heaven on June 11, 2019 as a result of Alzheimer's Disease. She was born in Enid, Oklahoma on October 26, 1943 to Kenneth and Geraldine (Hart) Domnick Rhodes. At the time, her dad was serving overseas in the U.S. Navy during WWII. Dannye Sue was the oldest of 4 with siblings, Darrel, David and Debbie and lived in Ada; Clinton; Oklahoma City; Urbana, Illinois and Tulsa. Dannye Sue graduated in 1961 from the brand-new Tulsa Edison High School or as she says "Cadillac High". She then attended Oklahoma State University where she met Kenneth Garrett of Little Rock, Arkansas. In 1962, they were united in marriage at Christ United Methodist Church in Tulsa where her parents were founding members. Together they had 3 daughters, Kellye, Kristye and Kerrye in Stillwater, Oklahoma. They were small business owners of Stillwater Development Company and Aufleger-Garrett and were members of First United Methodist Church, founding members of Stillwater Country Club, Co-PTA President, and various bowling leagues, and bridge clubs. In 1976, Dannye Sue married Gene Briegge of Perry, Oklahoma along with children, Deena (Rudd) and Clay Briegge. Dannye Sue was a homemaker and devoted her life to being a good wife and mother. Her life revolved around her family and she spent much time and energy on her children's activities such as cheerleading, band, student council, basketball and wrestling. Dannye Sue then finished college alongside her two youngest daughters. In 1992, she graduated from Oklahoma State University with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. She taught 1st grade for Tulsa Public Schools until retirement. Dannye Sue was a strong woman of faith and raised her children to know and love God and trust Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. She was a life-long member of the United Methodist Church and participated in Bible studies, small groups and service to the church. She was currently a member of Asbury United Methodist Church. Dannye Sue led by example and taught her children to live by those same Christian principles such as joyfulness, kindness, authenticity, and forgiveness. Most of all, she demonstrated and taught them to remain positive, never lose hope, and to trust God and thank Him despite any of life's circumstances. All of 4 foot 10, Dannye Sue stood out in a crowd! Though tiny in stature, she was giant in personality. Growing up, she was an acrobat and cheerleader and remained strong and limber her whole life. She was well-known for her backbends, headstands, and hand-walking that she would perform for a crowd at will. She could still perform a headstand at age 71 in assisted living! She enjoyed sewing, embroidery, woodworking, working puzzles, solving daily cryptoquotes and of course, going to the "picture show" complete with popcorn, Coke and Junior Mints! She will be remembered for her dancing, laughter and cheery disposition along with her ability to tell the funniest stories and give the BEST advice. She was predeceased by her mother and father. She is survived by daughters, Kellye (Todd) Johnson of Tulsa, Kristye (Chuck) McKinney of Sapulpa, Oklahoma and Kerrye (Michael) Morrison of Jenks, Oklahoma; grandchildren, Hunter, Hannah, Hayden and Hallye Johnson of Tulsa, Garrett and Macye McKinney of Sapulpa, Jansyn (Jacob) McKinney Lewis of Dallas, TX, and Matthew, Mason and Katye Morrison of Jenks; sister, Debbie Domnick Snider of Jenks; brothers, Darrel (Ellen) Domnick of Stillwater and David (Nicole) Domnick of Plainville, Georgia; as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
