Obituary for Violet Crabtree

Violet Crabtree
Viewing will be held 4:00 - 8:00 pm Thursday, July 6, 2017 at the funeral home (6934 S. Western Ave)


Services to celebrate her life will be held 2:00 pm Friday, July 7, 2017 at Southern Hills Baptist Church (8601 S. Penn Ave)


Violet Isabel Crabtree went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, July 4, 2017 at the age of 97. She was born December 17, 1919 in Wanette, Oklahoma, the daughter of Tallie W. and Emma Josephine “Cartwright” Walton. She grew up in Wanette, Oklahoma and graduated from Wanette High School. Violet was a faithful member of Southern Hills Baptist Church and loved attending bible study there. Violet loved to travel and was especially fond of visiting the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. Her working life, largely at Tinker Air Force Base, culminated in a position in the Advanced Configuration Accounting Department. It was there at Tinker that she met the love of her life, Ernest Lee Crabtree and in December of 1975 they were married. Violet or “Vi”, as everyone called her, made friends wherever she went. She was an elegant, charming, and gracious lady who always had a ready smile and a kind word. She is at peace now, the ravages of dementia and failing physical strength no more than a fading memory.

She was preceded in death by her:
Husband, Lee Crabtree;
Parents;
Brothers: Virgil and Marvin Walton;
Sisters: Zola Heck and Zona Walton;
Nephew, Kenneth Walton;
Niece, Carmen Miller.

She is survived by her:
Step-son, Michael;
Sister, Avanell Forrester;
Nieces: Jody Vining and Carolyn Lewis;
Nephews: Roger and Randy Walton; David and Philip Heck; Jimmy Forrester; Jay Bunker;
Numerous great nieces and nephews.
