Obituary for James N. Khourie

James N. Khourie, born on October 21, 1930, in Boynton, Oklahoma as the youngest of four children of Vifa and Sam Khourie, died on January 22, 2018. Jim is survived by his Wife, Wanda, and stepsons, Mike and Stuart, and daughter in law Pamm and grandchildren Alan, Rebecca & Lauren. Jim was predeceased by his parents and brother and sisters.
Jim graduated from Northeastern State University in Tahlequah and, after a tour in the United States Air Force, he graduated from the University of Oklahoma College of Law. Jim brought his talents as a poet and writer into his career as a lawyer. As a lawyer he assisted in a wide range of cases to further the rights, health and wellbeing of his clients and the public at large. Jim provided invaluable legal advice while assisting in cases to vindicate many persons’ civil rights and the successful efforts to preserve the Illinois River and stop the Black Fox nuclear power plant lawsuits.
Jim cherished Wanda’s cookies and Vifa’s cabbage rolls, expertly recreated by Wanda. A bite of either brought a smile to his face and a story from his treasure trove of experiences. His family and many friends celebrate his life and their time with Jim.
Mark Griffith Memorial Funeral Home - Westwood Chapel, 918-446-0010. Online condolences & guestbook are available at
