Dwanna was born July 25, 1936 in Comanche County to Mack and Delma Turnbow Matthews. In 1940, the Matthews moved to Haskell County where Dwanna lived the remainder of her life. She was a graduate of Haskell High School and remained a loyal Haskell Indian Fan. She was a cheerleader and also chosen as the Cotton Queen of Haskell County in 1953.
Dwanna married Wilbert Klose in 1954. This past February they celebrated their 67th wedding anniversary. Their union was blessed with two daughters, three granddaughters and two great grands. Dwanna was a faithful member of the First United Methodist Church in Haskell for 67 years; where she taught Sunday school and was a member of the Hazel Weaver Bible Class. Dwanna was a charter member of the Haskell Cowbelles, Haskell Young Homemakers, and more recently, The Happy Book Club. She was very active in her community. Dwanna was active with PTA, 4-H and Girl Scouts. She served as Girl Scout Cookie Chairman. Every February the living room was a maze of cookie boxes.
Dwanna worked for the Department of Agriculture for 36 years, and helpful in their farming, ranching and custom harvesting business. She was known to bring hot lunches to the fields. Collecting and sharing recipes; hosting coffee and dinner parties; collecting antiques; sewing for her family and reading a good mystery were her favorite things in life. Dwanna loved sharing the adventures of her “3 Ts”: her granddaughters, Tenille, Tracy, and Ty, and in recent years, her great grands, Lennox and Shy. Her greatest loves called her Nans.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Mack and Delma Turnbow Matthews and son-in-law Larry Mathis.
