July 31, 1930 - August 27, 2019
On the morning of August 27th, Bobbie Smith of Oklahoma City died at the age of 89. Bobbie was born to Edward and Ophelia Turbeville in 1930. She attended Capitol Hill High School and upon completion married Raymond Smith who preceded her in death in 1981. Bobbie was a long time member of the Women of the Moose being active in many of their charities, volunteering considerable time and talent in a variety of projects. Three days a week Bobbie walked at a church where they met to walk and have coffee and doughnuts. Of course, there was more coffee and doughnuts consumed than actual walking. She was known for her good sense of humor and cute little quotes that are best left for family and friends to discuss behind closed doors. She was quite a teller of tales, loving to regale elaborate stories about both her time as a military wife, her childhood and her family’s childhood. Self-sufficiency was a necessity throughout her childhood growing up during the Depression with a single mother; she carried this throughout her entire life. She was the baby of the family who maintained the household while her mother worked outside the home. Bobbie learned early on from her mother that cleanliness was next to Godliness if you expected to go anywhere with your friends after school. Therefore, maintaining a perfectly decorated home and a passion for keeping it spotless was of the utmost importance. While her home looked like a museum, she possessed a knack for buying items to decorate with minimal impact to her pocketbook. While some people find yard work drudgery, Bobbie enjoyed this time outdoors as reflection and exercise. Mowing the lawn and keeping her yard meticulously manicured was a passion that she thoroughly enjoyed. Bobbie had many loves too. Her daughter Ragena Pearson and son-in-law William Pearson, both of Oklahoma City. She also dearly loved her grandchildren who called her Nanny. Steve Pearson of Newalla; Stori White and her husband Matt White of Corrales, New Mexico; Shelbi Tran and her husband Quan Tran of Harrah Oklahoma. She also took extreme pride in her great-grandchildren Bobby, Kennedi, Haley, Alexa, Ace, and Christian. She also was fortunate to have two great-great grandchildren Anastasiya and Grayson. A public memorial service will be held at Ford Funeral Service 305 S. Sooner Rd. Midwest City, OK 73110 on Tuesday, September 3 at 11 A.M. Visitation is Sunday, September 3 at the funeral home from 1-6 P.M. There will be a dinner following the graveside service at the Moose Lodge in Midwest City at 8713 E. Main St. MWC, OK 73110 starting at 1:30 P.M. In lieu of flowers you may send a donation to one of the charities Bobbie held dear to her heart: Humane Society of Oklahoma, St. Jude’s or Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund.
