The Floods
Ross Flood

A Ross FloodAs a school boy Ross was on the wrestling team. He was able to make it to the Olympics where he was successful against Hitler's wrestler. Ross won the match. Today, he is listed in the Hall of Fame for wrestlers at Oklahoma State University.

Mary Jane Selph and Ross Flood had three children: Tom, Bobby Flood Lewallen and Judy Flood. I don't know Judy's married name. All three have their degrees out of O.S.U. Tom was a successful business man in landscaping at Tulsa, Oklahoma. His business was big, well organized, and was an asset to the community. Bobby has been a teacher all her life and may be retired by now. She was an incredibly sharp person who was conservative. She rode her bicycle to work for years. Judy lives in Tulsa. She was younger and we had little contact with her simply because of circumstances as to jobs, time limitations, and all the things to keep one too busy.

Mary Jane, Ross's wife, was an exceptional woman. Her grandfather was a medical doctor in one of the little towns around Stillwater, Oklahoma. Her father was a banker. She often laughed it was harder because her father was a banker, there was no room for error on her accounting. Ross owned a country sales lot which serviced the many farmers in the area. Every Saturday for years Mary Jane baked pies and cooked hamburgers for the people who came to the sales lot. The little café was just a counter. The folks bought their food and went back to the car and their livestock to eat. Mary Jane held a Master's degree in Home Economics. When her girls were in college, she would sew total wardrobes for them. They were always well dressed, looking as if they had expensive clothing. Cost wise it would have been if she had not sewn for the girls

Ross and Mary Jane both passed away at Stillwater. Although, we didn't have an opportunity to spend much time with them other than the short time, we lived at Stillwater we always kept in touch via the telephone. The last conversation I had with Mary Jane was a lovely, chatty time while we went over the things in our families to have happened. I miss them.
