Mary Faith Bittle was born August 15, 1936 in Sloans Chapel community, Oklahoma, the daughter of James Preston Masterson and Glady Fine Masterson.  She married Harvey Tom Bittle on September 22, 1977 in Sallisaw, Oklahoma.  Mrs. Bittle attended Sloan's Chapel schhol from age 3.  She attended Sallisaw Schools after the country school consolidated with Sallisaw.  She earned her Bachelor's
degree from Northeastern State Teacher's College in Tahlequah.  She taught several years in Sallisaw, Ft. Smith and Michigan schools.  She later worked for Cherokee Nation and the Oklahoma Department of Human Services.  In the late 70's she worked a short time for Garland Coal and Mining Company.
