For nearly 55 years, she was a devoted wife and companion to her soul-mate, who has awaited her and she joins in the everlasting. She was a wonderfully talented mother to Pamela R.

Smith II, Whitney and Kelsey Propps, sister and brother-in-law, Kathleen and Ray Shaw; brother-in-law, Brewster Carter; brother and sister-in-law, Gerald and Clara McPhail; good friends, Maria Knox and Judy Attaway; many nieces and nephews; and beloved other extended family and friends. Lorraine wrote, 'I know Buck is waiting for me with his arms ready to gather me in. Buck will say, 'Where have you been? I have been waiting such a long time for you.' Memorial services will be held 2:00 p.m. Thursday, August 25, 2005 at Central Presbyterian Church at 50th and N. May Avenue, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
