Vera Inez Biglow of Okmulgee, Oklahoma

March 31, 1932 - June 29, 2020

 

There is an open gate at the end of the road through which each must go alone. Vera Lee Inez Biglow entered that gate on Monday Morning, June 29, 2020 around 6:44 A.M.

It was in Nuyaka, Oklahoma, where Roger and Ida [Adams] Pickens were blessed with a daughter on March 31, 1932 and they named her Vera Lee Inez Pickens. She attended Mt. Pleasant Elementary School and later, Rosenwald High School near Henryetta, Oklahoma and also later, Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology, Okmulgee.

The scripture states 'I must work the works of Him that sent me...." Vera accepted Christ in 1948 at Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church, Nuyaka, Oklahoma, where she served the Lord as Sunday School Superintendent.

She met and later married the late Milton Biglow, and their union was blessed with four children; Connie, then Carolyn, Linda, and ultimately Keith. This union was later dissolved.

She united with Eastside Baptist Church in 1958, where she served the Lord faithfully as Baptist Training Union President, Secretary of the Mission and Usher. She was a woman of great faith and a loyal friend.  Later in life, she united with St. Matthews Missionary Baptist Church, under the pastoral guidance of Reverend McKinley Rice, and she remained a faithful, tithing member.  She loved her Church and loved the special attention she received from the fellowship.  

During her lifetime, she provided for her family working in various capacities, which prepared her for her duties as a Deputy County Clerk. She worked in the Okmulgee County Courthouse for over 25 years before her retirement August 1, 1994. After retirement, she then helped her son when the funeral home was built in Okmulgee, until "he" fired her to make her enjoy life more!

Affectionately referred to as "Babe" by longtime friends and grandchildren, Vera enjoyed having a good time with family, friends and her other organizations that she was involved in. She was a longtime, faithful member of Okmulgee City Wide Prayer Band, a 50 year member of the Heroines of Jericho, and a member of the Order of Eastern Star.
