Billie Holstein

Billie Marguerite Robbins Holstein departed these earthly climes June 23, 2014. She was born December 20, 1932, in Elmore City, Oklahoma, to Gladys Selby Robbins Wade and William Anderson Robbins, who was in a fatal auto accident shortly before her birth. Her mother remarried in 1944 to John Dow Wade, a kind and caring stepfather. She graduated from Pauls Valley High School in 1951, then attended East Central College briefly.
She worked for Halliburton in Oklahoma City before marrying Edward Holstein on September 3, 1955.
Billie was first and foremost a loving wife, homemaker, and avid cook. She was a 50-year plus member of PEO. She enjoyed playing bridge, more for the camaraderie of her friends than the making of seven no trump. She was also active in the SPE Aux including both bridge and book clubs and in the Junior Current Book Club.
Billie is survived by her husband Ed, many cousins, nieces and nephews including her favorite cousins Ms. Marcia Hamilton Scott and Marcia's granddaughter Katy Scott.
Funeral Services will be held on Friday, June 27, 2014 at 2:00pm in the chapel of Forest Park Westheimer Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers please send donations to in memory of our dear Billie.
