In Loving Memory of Florence Adeline Guest


Florence Adeline Guest, a beloved resident of Tulsa, Oklahoma, passed away on Saturday, December 30, 2023, at the age of 81 years. Born on September 28, 1942, in Sheridan, Wyoming, Florence was the cherished daughter of LeRoy "Buzz" and Velma Harnish.


Florence spent her early years in Claremont, Wyoming, living a frugal life as her father worked as a sharecropper. She developed a love for driving the family tractor, even if a mishap over the hand pump water well occurred, showcasing her spirited nature.

Their shared joy included outdoor activities, traveling the world, Wyoming football and spending time with their many schipperkes throughout the years.


Known affectionately as "Nana" by her grandchildren, Florence was a skilled cook, delighting each family member with their favorite dishes. Her love for the color blue reflected a vibrant and joyful personality. Florence also found fulfillment as a Cub Scout den mother, positively impacting the lives of young scouts.


Devoting her life to raising four children, Florence leaves behind a legacy of love and commitment. She is survived by, husband, John of Tulsa; her daughter, Tina Oedekoven of Gillette, WY, and husband Paul; daughter Teresa Wright of Gillette, WY; son Chris Straight of Lexington, OK; and son Mike Guest of Glenpool and wife Angi.
