Biography

After the death of their daughter, Thelma Hutcherson Lucas-2048, grandchildren Max Hutcherson-61 and Maxine went to live with their Grandmother Hutcherson Seals-55 , and Mr. Stewart. Mr. Stewart's daughters did not like Max and Maxine, so after several years, Grandmother Hutcherson told them she could no longer keep them, and they would have to go to the orphanage.

When Grandma and Grandpa Lucas heard about this, they decided they would take Max and Maxine. Grandma Lucas cooked, kept house, sewed, and quilted. She taught Maxine how to sew and quilt.

After the death of her husband in 1940, Stella and her granddaughter Maxine moved to a duplex in Oklahoma City, right by the large church and cemetery. Stella left the farm lifestyle behind- no more quilting and sewing. Stella and Maxine would take the Interurban to downtown Oklahoma City where Stella loved to run around and shop.

Stella never remarried. She became Seventh Day Adventist after moving to Oklahoma City, and attended church somewhere close to the duplex.

On Christmas morning 1942, her granddaughter Maxine was married to Alvin Tucker. Maxine and Alvin lived with Stella in her duplex for some time. Afterward, one of her friends moved in with her.

Eventually Stella developed Alzheimer's disease, and moved across the street from Max and Lavern Hutcherson. Stella would sometimes come out on her front porch in the middle of the night in her sleeping gown and yell for Max until he would wake up, get dressed, and come see what she wanted.
