Ada and her 7 siblings were raised in Kellyville, Oklahoma. At the age of 17 she married and moved to Kansas City, KS, where she lived for a couple years before returning to her Oklahoma roots. She worked at Bartlett Collins Glass for many years, hand painting glass. Later she went to work for Frankoma Pottery as a trimmer. Ada was married 3 times. Although she never had her own children, she was loved by family. When her niece Carolyn was a toddler she would say, “I want my Ada” whenever she saw a picture of her. She had a wonderful sense of humor and was very quick witted. She was loved by most everyone for her talkative nature. She was preceded in death by her six siblings; Mary Tolbert, Bertha Martin, Leona Knizley, Margaret Brown, Jim Turner and William Turner.
