Lula “Lou” Jean Proctor passed away on October 24, 2020, at the age of 82.
She was born on December 31, 1937, on the family farm in Weleetka, Oklahoma. She was the daughter of Fred and Edith Cleaver.
Lou attended school in Weleetka and Ponca City, Oklahoma. She married David “Bud” H. Proctor in February 1955. They had three children: David, Cathy, and Dennis. In April 1965, the family moved to Oklahoma City. She worked at several different jobs over the years, but mostly was a homemaker. Lou was an excellent cook and everyone loved her pineapple and coconut cream pies, cinnamon rolls, and apricot fried pies. She had a great sense of humor and loved playing practical jokes. Lou and Bud enjoyed concerts and her favorites were Elvis and Tom Jones! She loved decorating her home for every holiday and getting her family together with her sibling’s families for Thanksgiving and Christmas. All the cousins remain close to this day because of these gatherings. Lou was very proud of her children and grandchildren and their accomplishments. She enjoyed watching them play sports and many other activities. She and Bud went on several cruises, which they really enjoyed. She loved shopping and driving nice cars, but family was the most important thing to her.
She was preceded in death by her parents; Bud, her husband of 64 years; brothers, J.B. and his wife Ellen Cleaver, Bob Cleaver; sister, Pauline and her husband Ran Carter.
Lou is survived by her children, David Proctor and his wife Cheryl, Cathy Hahn and husband Perry, Dennis Proctor and his wife Pam; sister-in-law, Zerlene Cleaver, who she always thought of as a sister; six grandchildren, April Watson, Austin Proctor and his wife Kendi, Darren Hahn, Cara Fink and her husband Richard, Cami Sheaffer and her husband Doc, Cory Proctor and his wife Brittany; eleven great-grandchildren, Victoria Watson, Si Proctor, Birdie Proctor, Parker Hahn, Preston Hahn, Payton Hahn, Porter Hahn, Avie Fink, Blair Fink, Trip Sheaffer, and Shaylee Sheaffer.
