Virginia Lee “Bunny” (Harmon) Stites, age, 81, died peacefully in her home in Sallisaw on Saturday, Jan. 15, 2022. She was a 1958 graduate of Sallisaw High School and later went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in Education from Northeastern State University in Tahlequah.

She worked for over 50 years at Stites Oil Company, Stites Farms, and the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service Office (ASCS) in Sallisaw. After the death of Herbert, she married Max Nimmo in 2002.
Bunny was a loving mother and grandmother and cherished every moment she had with family and friends. She was an avid reader and loved a good crossword puzzle, but nothing entertained her more than watching Oklahoma Sooner football and OKC Thunder basketball. She loved Jesus and had a wonderful relationship with Him. She will be missed by all who knew her.
She is survived by her three sons, Michael Wayne, Richard Darren and Phillip Craig; and her six grandchildren, Seth, Nick, Nate, Sophie, Will and Stella. She also leaves behind a host of family and friends that she loved and cherished dearly. She was preceded in death by her parents, Audra (Williams) Harmon and Richard Jewell Harmon; her sister, Betty (Harmon) Lowe; and husbands, Herbert Wayne Stites and Waylon Max Nimmo.
Active pallbearers were Seth Stites, Nick Stites, Nate Stites and Will Stites.
Viewing was 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday at Agent Mallory Martin Funeral Home in Sallisaw.
