Obituary for Barbara J Howell

Barbara Jean Howell passed away on Tuesday, November 20, 2018, at the Grace Living Center of Stillwater at the age of 82. A longtime Cushing resident, Barbara was born November 7, 1936, in Oklahoma City, OK, and was raised and educated largely in nearby Stroud, OK.
Barbara moved to Cushing, OK, soon after meeting her future husband, Herbert Hoover Howell. They were married on March 1, 1954, in Pawnee, OK, and spent 61 years of loving marriage together in Cushing. To this union three children—Linda, James, and Rick—were born.
As a mother, grandmother, and homemaker, Barbara spent much of her time caring for others. Anyone who knew her was glad to taste her made-from-scratch pies, to view her impressive collection of rare dolls, or to hear her joyfully singing country and gospel songs. In later years, she proudly led Sunday-school services at the First Baptist Church of Cushing.
Survivors include her daughter, Linda Howell of Stillwater, OK; sons, James Howell and Ricky Howell of Cushing, OK; niece, Joni Foglesong of Edmond, OK; grandson Jim Howell of Stillwater, OK; and grandson Billy Howell of Washington, D.C., as well as his wife Erika Ostergaard, also of Washington, D.C.
Barbara’s extended family includes her friends at the First Baptist Church and the many neighbors and community members throughout Cushing whose lives she touched over the course of her life. Graveside services will be held Monday, November 26, 2018, at 2:00 PM in the Stroud Cemetery with Brother Ralph Hickman officiating. A viewing will be open to the public Sunday, November 25, from 1:00 PM till 6:00 PM at the Davis Funeral Home of Cushing.
