Patsy Lorene Halfmoon Johnson was born October 23, 1929 to Mary Jane and Fred Halfmoon Sr. Patsy was preceded in death by her husband Billy B. Johnson, brothers, Freddie Halfmoon, James Squirrel, Alfred Halfmoon, Melvin Halfmoon and sisters Eleanor Babby, and Anita Valliere.

Shortly after graduating from Haskell Institute in Lawrence, Kansas, Patsy went to work for Southwestern Bell Telephone Company and AT&T when they merged together. She never missed a day of work and retired on May 12, 1989, with 40 years and 7 months of service. Patsy and her husband Billy started the Green Country Pool League for both men and women teams that traveled to many states and tournaments. Patsy was the top shooter on the women's team and won many trophies. Along the trail she met Minnesota Fats and had their picture taken together. She loved camping at pow wows but mostly loved her Shawnee ceremonial dances and stomp dances when her grandchildren participated in those events. She also enjoyed camping at the lake and fishing for crappie. Her most favorite hobby was going to casinos to push buttons and especially liked the Quapaw Casino. If you asked her why, she would say, "the restroom, I didn't have to fight with the paper seat covers", There are so many endless stories to tell about Patsy who lived life to the fullest.

Survivors include daughters Barbara Wisdom, Nicki Thomas, both of White Oak, and Patti Spencer and husband Tim of Owasso. She had four grandchildren, Gerald "Skip" Panther of White Oak, Michael Jason Winesburg and wife Marice of Henryetta, Corey Winesburg and wife Heather of Vinita, and Rikki and husband Shannon Scott of Henryetta. Ten great grandchildren, Byron "Chase" Panther, Avori Winesburg, Jackson Scott, Taylor Welch-Winesburg, Tate Wisdom, Emma Winesburg, Tanner Winesburg, Jasmine Winesburg, CharLee Scott and
Gracie "Gigi" Scott, one great great grandson Kai Panther. Patsy would like to be remembered for loving life, friends and family.
