Beverly L. Boothe, 83 of Dewey died Friday in Dewey.

Beverly was born the daughter of Ira E. and Tina T. (Miller) Kroh in Wayside, Washington County on July 15, 1931. Beverly’s mother died when she was 16 years old but her grandmother Miller was there for her, and a wonderful, gracious lady with a big heart, Cina Haugh, who let her stay with her and her two daughters Barbara Davis and June Mull, to finish school and claimed Beverly as their middle sister.

Beverly met the love of her life William Joe “Bill” Boothe after she started at Dewey High School in 1946. They were married in Jan. 1950 and when their boys were still young, Bill’s parents gave them 10 acres to build a house on and raise their children in the country. Bill and Beverly did a lot of the work themselves, including digging the foundation with a pick and shovel in the evening after Bill got off work. Over the years, they acquired 100 acres and lived more than 60 blessed years on the original farm north of Dewey.

Beverly worked many years at Phillips as a secretary but her real passion in life was taking care of her husband and her boys. She was a loving wife and caring mother. Earlier in life she made her own clothes, usually dresses which she wore to work; later she decorated t-shirts with her own custom designs.

After retirement they took many memorable trips to Hawaii and around the country. Oftentimes stopping at every antique store along the way, she was always looking for deals and items, like costume jewelry, for her booth at Linger Longer in downtown Dewey. She loved local history and wanted to preserve it, and volunteered at the Dewey Hotel.

Beverly enjoyed cooking and was known for her sweet pickles which she canned from her garden. She also baked chocolate pies for special people who loved being the recipient of her delicious treats. She was a loving grandmother and looked forward to visits from the grandkids, especially during summer.

Beverly is survived by her loving husband Bill of the home, two sons Bill “BJ” Boothe and Dorothea of Dewey, and Tim Boothe and Julie of Caney, five grandchildren, nine great grandchildren, seven great great grandchildren, one brother Thomas A. Kroh and sister Betty (Kroh) Matlock and one sister in law Betty Kroh. She was preceded in death by her parents and one brother Ira Kroh Jr.

Visitation will be Mon. 2-8 pm and Tues. 9am - 8pm at Davis Family Funeral Home, 918-534-3030, 113 S Osage (Hwy 75) in Dewey.

Funeral services will be held 10 a.m. on Wed., June 17, 2015, at the Dewey Cemetery. Services are under the direction of Carter Davis and the Davis Family Funeral Home. Online condolences and remembrances may be shared with Beverly’s family at www.DavisFamilyFuneralHome.com

William Joe Boothe, 84, of Dewey, passed away Friday in Bartlesville.

“Bill” was born the son of William Edward and Georgia (Moon) Boothe in Dewey, OK, on April 29, 1933. He was raised on the Moon family farm which his parents had bought from his grandparents then built them a little house where young Bill would stop by every morning to eat another breakfast. After school, he always played checkers with his grandfather and listened to him play the fiddle and harmonica, often enjoying his grandmother Moon’s chocolate sugar cookies. Bill attended Dewey schools, graduating high school with the Class of 1950.

Bill met the love of his life Beverly L. Kroh after she started at Dewey High School in 1946. They were married in Jan. 1950 and when their boys were still young, Bill’s parents gave them 10 acres to build a house on and raise their children in the country. Bill and Beverly did a lot of the work themselves, including digging the foundation with a pick and shovel in the evening after Bill got off work. Over the years, they acquired 100 acres and lived more than 60 blessed years on the original farm north of Dewey.

Like his wife, Bill worked for Phillips Petroleum, retiring after 20 years of faithful service, then working fulltime as a farmer and rancher. They enjoyed each other’s company, both working on their land and in their leisure time. After retirement they took many memorable trips to Hawaii and around the country. Oftentimes they would stop at every antique store along the way where Beverly hunted for deals and finds, like costume jewelry, for her booth at Linger Longer in downtown Dewey.

Bill was known for telling people, “God has truly blessed us and that we are the richest people in the world.” They knew their greatest treasures were their sons BJ and Tim who Beverly noted, were loving and caring not only to their parents, but also to others. Later, Bill and Beverly were blessed by their grandkids and looked forward to their summertime visits.

Bill is survived by his greatest pride and joy, his two sons Bill “BJ” Boothe and Dorothea of Dewey, and Tim Boothe and Julie Ann of Caney, five grandchildren, nine great grandchildren, and nine great great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, one brother Richard Boothe, and his beloved wife Beverly.

Visitation will be held on Tuesday from 4-8 and Wednesday 10-8.

Graveside services will be held 10 am on Thursday, April 12, at the Dewey Cemetery. Services are under the direction of Carter Davis and the Davis Family Funeral Home. Online condolences and remembrances may be shared with Bill’s family at www.DavisFamilyFuneralHome.com.
