Todie Haskins passed away peacefully at her home on August 27, 2006. Todie was born on July 14, 1914 in Oklahoma City to Alice Roberts Stone and Oliver Claude Stone. She was the youngest of five children and was preceded in death by her husband, A. Poyntz Haskins, sisters, Velma Goodman, Alma Pease, Ruby Wright and her brother, John, (Bud) Stone, as well as her niece, Virginia Phillips, and Virginia's husband, Walter John Phillips. She is survived by her great nieces and nephews, Patti and Rick Harris, Penny and Mike Glass, Peggy Phillips, Kenny Phillips, Alice and Bill Sullivan, all of Oklahoma City, and Todie Stone, and Tom Gross of Manhattan Beach, CA; and great-great nieces and nephews. After the death of her husband, Poyntz in 1956, Todie managed a gift showroom at the Dallas Trade Mart. In 1987, she retired and moved back to Oklahoma City to care for her sister, Alma. In addition to being devoted to family, she was an avid sports fan. She began her love of sports as a cheerleader for Putnam City High School, graduating in 1933. She was totally devoted to the Oklahoma University football and basketball teams, and the Dallas Cowboys and Mavericks. She tried to never miss a game on television, even after her eyesight became too poor to see the plays. Her good humor and infectious laugh, as well as priceless expressions, made her a joy for all that came to know her. She will be missed not only by her family, but also by her numerous friends. Her message would be 'I'm sitting on a rainbow.' A graveside service will be held at Rose Hill Burial Park, 10:00 a.m., Thursday, August 31, 2006. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be sent to a charity of your choice, Mercy Home Hospice Care or Central Presbyterian Church.
