July 12, 1935 - Feb 7, 2014 PURCELL
Betty, age 78, was born July 12, 1935, in OKC, and passed away Friday, Feb. 7, 2014, in Purcell, OK after struggling years with Alzheimer's disease and most recently, with lung cancer. Betty was known for her cooking, love of a good joke, friendliness and her overall sweetness. Betty was also tough and hardworking, retiring from General Motors
in 1995. Happy things to her were her family and friends, her pets and dancing. She is enjoying a heavenly reunion with her parents, three siblings and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends who preceded her in death. There is no doubt, they are all laughing out loud and having a ball now that she has joined them. She is survived by her three children: Tony and Cathy Ellis, of Purcell; Terry and Donelda Ellis, of Purcell; and Tina Harman, of Oklahoma City; eight grandchildren: Kyle and Mary Ellis, of Whitesboro, TX; Kasey and Kyan Knowles, of Purcell; Kristen Haynes, of Purcell; Kelly and Chad Weaver, of Rosedale; Blake Ellis, of Purcell; Shane Ellis, of Norman; Macy Ellis, of Purcell; and Lauren Harman, of Oklahoma City; and three great-grandchildren, Paisley Knowles, Addyson Haynes, and Kash Knowles, all of Purcell. A celebration of her life will be 2 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014, at the Wilson-Little Funeral Home Chapel in Purcell, OK.
