Faye kay Bitting Younger was born on February 25th, 1921 in Welling, OK, the daughter of John and Susie (Clay) Bitting. She grew up with two brothers, Jim and Dugan and one sister, Frances and attended school ,then decided to marry her best friend and sweetheart, Johnnie Younger. They set up housekeeping in Tulsa where Johnnie worked, but as soon as they retired, the Welling Community was always her favorite home. Together they raised four adored sons, Rick Bitting, Sonny Boy Younger, Larry Younger and Rusty Younger. She was the consummate homemaker, nothing meant more to her than her husband , children, and family. Her days were filled with keeping house, making wonderful meals, working in the garden and providing for those she loved. There was usually a radio playing her favorite old country and gospel favorites in the background. When there was a little spare time, she loved to tag along with Johnnie to the old fishing hole for a little relaxation in the sun. She loved any chance she had to gather her family together for a meal and visit with her family. After Johnnie passed, she remained on the farm she loved so much until her health began to fade. The Lord called this kind and gentle mother home to rest on July 10th, 2017 in Tahlequah, OK. She was 96 years old. She will be greatly missed for all the love she gave.

She is preceded in death by her mother, father, husband, her sons, Rick Bitting and Sonny Boy Younger, her brothers, Jim and Dugan Biting, and her sister Frances Bitting-Vest.

Those left to cherish her memory include Johnnie "Rusty" Younger Jr. and wife Barbara Lemon of Welling and Larry Younger also of Welling. She lives on in her five grandchildren, Carson Lemon-Younger, Dakota Perry, Shane Bitting, Travis Bitting, and Charlie Bitting-Jordan, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and a host of friends and loved ones.
