Zouella Crawford Hargrave

EDMOND —     Zouella Crawford Hargrave, 94, of Edmond, Okla., rejoined her beloved Bennie and her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ on August 3, 2013. Born in September of 1918 in Pecan Gap, Texas, Zouella lived a long and fruitful life.  She graduated from Pecan Gap High School in 1936 as valedictorian and then from Dallas Methodist Hospital School of Nursing in 1939 as a registered nurse.  She married Bennie Hargrave in 1940, and graduated from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1950 with a Bachelor’s degree in Religious Education. She and Bennie lived in Miami and Cordell, Okla., before settling permanently in Edmond.

    Her greatest joys were her family, friends and her church.  Most of her family have predeceased her.

    She is survived by her daughter Sharon Caldwell, son-in-law Tony and their children Tyler and Brendan.  She leaves behind her friends and in-laws Bob and Barbara Graham as well as many other close friends, sister-in-law Beatrice Mathisen, nieces Danna Willis, Joan Watts and Debbie Assad and cousin Glee Chaney, all of Texas.

    Zouella was an active member of the First Baptist Church in Edmond. She never sought attention for herself but quietly encouraged others.  The fruit of her life is in the many lives she touched and souls she nurtured.

    The family thanks the many wonderful people at Epworth Villa and Quality of Life Hospice who so lovingly and compassionately cared for Zouella in her final days.

    A remembrance celebration of her life will take place 10 a.m. Monday, August 12, 2013, at Matthews Funeral Home, 601 S. Kelly Avenue, Edmond.  Interment will follow in Memorial Cemetery, Oklahoma City.

    Memorial donations may be made to Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children.
