Thirs from the left standing in the front row is ED YEARY.  He was the owner of the funeral home during this time.
Mr. Yeary's daughter,  EVELYN VAUGHN married BILL VAUGHN who later took over the funeral home.
Bill and Evelyn had a daughter, whose name I believe was Susan. 
I use to take piano lessons from her.   Submitted by Marsha Miller

This information comes from my mother, Juanita Fern McKey Adams, who was born in Elmore City in 1922.  Her mother was Opal Brookshier Mckey, married to Floyd F. McKey who served as Garvin County Commissioner until his death in 1933. (He was killed in an auto accident.  If anyone has any information or knows where I can find newspaper clipping, please let me know.  My mother knows very little about her dad.) After his death, Opal worked part-time at the telephone office.  submitted by Janice Hughes, Chickasha, Oklahoma
