Susan Beth (Hoots) Whetston

February 8, 1953 - May 27, 2017

Susan Beth (Hoots) Whetstone was born to her parents, J.C. and Maxine Hoots, on February 8, 1953 in the Watonga Oklahoma Hospital. She passed away in Fullerton, California in the St. Jude Hospital, on Saturday, May 27, 2017. Susan spent all of her early years in the Canton area, growing up on the family farm NE of town, where we were all amazed at her ability to travel barefoot through the sandburrs! She attended Canton Schools all 12 years and graduated with the class of 1971. Susan played basketball, enjoyed chorus, cheer leading, pep club, Rainbow Girls, and participated in the Senior play. Susan married Billy Pembrook and to this union was born one son, Christopher William Pembrook, who was the light of Grampa and Grandma Hoots’ lives. She later married Gerald Whetstone, and during this marriage she lived primarily in the Seiling area where they farmed, and raised horses and cattle. After Gerald’s passing, she met her companion, Dal Stinson from Oakwood, and spent very happy times traveling to many grandchildren functions all over the state. Dal and Susan enjoyed a very happy relationship, with each having part of their lives enriched by the other. Susan worked at many jobs, but primarily at USG in the lab and later as a med tech at Seiling Hospital. Due to her Multiple Sclerosis, her immune system was compromised, and she had to retire from the health care profession. Music and church activities filled many of her later days. She loved to play the piano, guitar, and organ. She recently rededicated her life to the Lord, and would want all of you to make sure you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior! Preceding her in death were her parents, J.C. and Maxine Hoots, and her husband Gerald Whetstone. Surviving are brother, Bill Hoots of Canton, OK; son, Chris Pembrook and companion, Angel Doyle and family of Longdale, OK; numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren (blood, step, and adopted!); and numerous cousins. Susan was a “hugger”, so in her memory, please hug someone before this day is over! Funeral services were held at 1:30 p.m., Tuesday, June 6, 2017 at Canton Christian Church with Steve Driskill officiating. Interment followed in Orion Cemetery under the direction of Pierce Funeral Home, Canton. Memorials can be made to: Canton Christian Church Funeral Dinner Fund or the National Multiple Sclerosis Society with the funeral home serving as custodian at P.O. Box 36, Canton, OK 7372
