Verna Jean Gossett Karklin
Birth: Nov. 25, 1934
Tulsa County
Oklahoma, USA
Death: Apr. 16, 2007
Harris County
Texas, USA

Daughter of Clome Ovie Gossett and Lena Frances Capps Gossett; granddaughter of Paris Pzaro Capps and Minnie Mae Moore Capps. Husband: John Karklin. Cousin of Bobby Wayne Capps, Allan Capps, Gerald Capps,Jane Capps, Wilfred Burtrum, Peggy Jean Burtrum, Rosalie Yvonne Capps, Lyndell Keith Marrs, Gerald McDaniel and Lonnie Bill McDaniel.

During her later teen years, she won a few beauty contests in her home town of Tulsa, Oklahoma. She was an airline stewardess and was a 'daddy's girl,' which is just fine =)

I remember her telling me when I was a little girl: I hope that when you grow up you don't have to do to your hair what I have to do to mine.

I didn't know that she meant coloring it to retain the 'blondeness' that she had as a child. I think that a lot of us have to do that when we grow up. *looks about innocently*
