Annie Oocumma, 69, of the Wolftown Community in Cherokee passed away Friday, January 25, 2019 at the Cherokee Indian Hospital after a short courageous battle with cancer.

Annie was the most fun loving, warm hearted mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, coach, teammate, friend and breast cancer survivor.  Or whatever you needed her to be.

She loved softball, Cherokee braves, Bingo and her Bingo family, senior games and senior friends.  But most of all she loved her family especially her grandkids, nieces and nephews Kaden & Carter.  They were her guiding stars.  She put them on a pedestal unknown to most.  They never had to hurt or want for anything “Sissy” could fix anything and left that impression on all of them making them feel invincible and anything was possible.

She loved unconditionally and would give you the shirt out of her trunk or go buy you one.  Feed you or give you her last dollar.  She never knew a stranger and was special to many.  If you were a “victim” of her crude and gutter mind then you were super special to her.  She joked in a special way that made every one laugh.  She will be missed by all that knew her.

She attended Bethabara Baptist but was a life coach at Cherokee Methodist in her early years.

Annie is survived by her daughter, Jeannie "Jen" Oocumma-Driver and husband Jerry "Bear" Driver of Cherokee; 2 Grandchildren Elizabeth "Liz" Oocumma and Jamison "Cain" Oocumma both of Cherokee; 1 great grandchild Preeya Oocumma; Brothers, Mose Oocumma (Peggy), Clint Oocumma, Joe Oocumma Jr., Ray Oocumma, Dave Oocumma, and Jerry Oocumma; Sisters, Peggy "Dolly" Littlejohn, Nellie Ahli-sha Littlejohn Stephens (Jake), Norma Oocumma, Susan Oocumma, and Caroline Oocumma; Aunt Myrtle Bird; Great Uncle Simpson Queen; special grandsons, Tavi Rivera and Raymond Taylor; and best friend Honey, her dog.

Annie was preceded in death by her mother, Kina Queen Littlejohn, Step-Father, Boyd Littlejohn; Biological father, Joseph Oocumma; one daughter, Kina Darlene Young Dog; Brothers, Levi Oocumma, Henry Queen Littlejohn, Wild Bill, John Jr., and Henry Oocumma.

Visitation will be held on Monday, January 28, 2019 at Bethabara Baptist Church beginning at 5 pm where the body will remain until the hour of service on Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 2 pm.  Pastor James "Bo" Parris will officiate. Burial will follow at the Annie Oocumma Cemetery.  Pallbearers will be Cain Oocumma, Frank Oocumma, Jim Oocumma, Mike Oocumma, Ray Oocumma, Troy Arch, Moose Littlejohn, John Martin, Justin Lambert, Jake Stephens, Duke McCoy, Chad George, Bear Driver, Frank Driver, Blaine Wolfe, Tim Smith, Tavi Rivera, Raymond Taylor, Omar Yanez, German Bernal, Lil Kallup McCoy, Mike Caldwell, Ed Thompson, Mark Littlejohn, and Coon Bigmeat.  Honorary pallbearers will be Kaden Stephens and Carter Stephens.

Dear Family, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your Dear loved one. Our loving Creator never planned for death to be part of his original plan. There is such a loving scripture found at Revelation 21: 3 & 4 which reads: With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, And they will be his people, And God himself will be with them, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The Former things have passed away “ I hope these words help you find comfort and also give you hope for our near future. Can you imagine Living Forever on Earth under Beautiful conditions that will never end.
