Graveside funeral services will be held at 10:00 am Wednesday, July 3, 2013, for Mrs. Whitfield, age 77, who passed away at Purcell Municipal Hospital of an illness of 8 months.

The youngest of five children born to John Hugo "Pete" Deaville, (1889-1968), and Rilla Lucinda (McCracken) Deaville, (1898-1982), of Byars. She grew up a farm girl living in Byars, OK.

A 1954 Byars High School graduate she married was married two years later, on September 28, 1956, to Alvin Max Whitfield, of nearby Rosedale. They made their home in Purcell and raised one son, Michael.

Her working career began at the McClain County Court House in Purcell. Later, she became a Purcell Public Schools secretary in the Superintendent office for several years. In the 1980s she became the Director of the Indian Education Program at Purcell Schools where she later retired.

For many years she enjoyed the outdoors and time fishing with her family on outings at Lake Texoma. While she enjoyed bingo and and country music, she cherished and loved spoiling her two grandsons. She will be greatly missed.

Preceding her in death were: her parents; one brother, Bob Othel Deaville (1920-2006); three sisters, Virginia "Virgie" Kathleen Dykeman, (1918-1996), Hazel Fayrene Woodley, (1925-2012), Leta Jo Skaggs, (1931-2012).

Survivors include: her husband, Max, of the home; their son, Mike Whitfield and wife Mary Brett of Columbus, OH; two grandsons: Max and Kevin Whitfield of OH; one brother-in-law, Woody Woodley, of TX; one sister-in-law, Riva Deaville of IL, and several nieces, nephews and a host of friends.
