Skoshi Thedford Farr, 72 of Oklahoma City, OK, and Grants Pass, OR, was born 11/28/1947 in Tokyo, Japan to Ronald Cecil “Ted” Thedford of Orlando, OK, and Lillian Loeffler Thedford of St. Louis, MO. She left this life on 1/6/2020 after a long and valiant battle with cancer. She spent most of her life serving others through the United Methodist Church and furthering research into natural and alternative health medicines and remedies begun by her late husband, Dr. Charlie Farr.

She is predeceased by parents Ronald Cecil “Ted” Thedford and Lillian Loeffler Thedford, sisters Terry Buck Hickey and Karen Squire, and husband, Dr. Charles Farr.

Skoshi always put family first and leaves behind many who mourn her passing. She is survived by daughter, Chele Rider, son Colonel (USAF) Kevin Sellers and wife Angie, stepson Rick Farr and wife JoAnn, and former husband Danny Sellers and wife, Sandy Sellers.

The family would also like to thank Jerome and Mary Kay Kennedy and family, Jim and Patricia Oplotnik and family, the nurses and doctors at Stephenson Cancer Center and the staff at OU Medical Center for their kindness and steadfast support and love.

Skoshi Farr lived her life true to her Christian principals and the family is comforted by beautiful memories, the family traditions she established, and the knowledge that she is out of all pain and suffering…and they promise to always use white icing for the cookies.
