Bertha Mary (Haley) Bastian

August 23, 1935 — January 11, 2024

Lawton

Bertha Mary (Haley) Bastian, of Lawton, peacefully passed away on Thursday, January 11th, 2024, at the age of 88. Bertha was the daughter of Duane and Ethel (Lull) Haley, born on August 23, 1935.

Bertha spent 54 years serving the residents of Lawton. Regardless of the name on the door, she was always the smiling cashier behind the counter at the local grocery store. After retiring in 2021, she still maintained many of the friendships forged over those years.

She loved her family fiercely and never hesitated to pick up the telephone to check-in often. Family was paramount to Bertha-and remained so even during her final days. There was no room to doubt the love she freely shared.

She is survived by two daughters; Debbie (Don) Fuller and Dianna (Tom) Collier, six grandchildren; Eric (Christy) Fuller, Adam Fuller, Becky (Jesse) Hill, Justin (Josephine) Fuller, Kristina (Jeffery) Longcore and Penny (Pierce) Summers and ten great-grandchildren; Brooklyn, Payton, Grayson, Taylor, Logyn, Cooper, Charlotte, Elizabeth, Jackson and Calynne.

Family and friends are welcome to celebrate the life of Bertha Bastian on Tuesday, January 16th, 2024, at the Lawton Evangelical Church, 425 S. Nursery Street, Lawton, where a visitation will be hosted at 11 a.m. with a funeral service commencing at 12 p.m. There will be a luncheon to follow at the same location.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the family to assist with funeral expenses or to Centrica Care Navigators, in remembrance of the wonderful care that was provided for Bertha.
