November 27, 1928 - July 4, 2021
Rita Mae “Stevie” Collett passed from this life to her forever home on July 4, 2021. She was born in Somerville, Alabama, to John Henry Russell and Velma Blankenship Russell on November 27, 1928. Rita was a precious mother and grandmother that made so many sacrifices for all of her family. She was the ultimate nurturer, so full of love and compassion. We have so many special memories of her that we will all cherish. In her early career, she was a nurse at Norman Hospital. In her later years she was a wonderful caregiver in private duty nursing for the elderly. Rita was preceded in death by her first husband, Robert Stevens, the father of her children, and husband, Loyal Collett, son Jerry Stevens, daughter, Donna Holleyman and son, Ray Hibdon. Rita is survived by her children, Max and Mary Armentrout and Dianne Hibdon, grandchildren, Mark and Kerri Hibdon, Les Hibdon, Denny and Sommer Dodd, Bo and Andrea Floyd, Jason and Brooke Mitchusson, great grandchildren, Kacy, Zac, Jamie, Travis, Christina, Haylee, Stan, Marlie, Kevin, Chance, Raelynn, Max Jr., Caden, Renner, Maggie, Marissa and Mavrik, along with many nieces and nephews in Kansas and Texas. A special thank you to Dortha Scanlan for her friendship and amazing care for mom the past three years, and for all the staff and nurses at Meadowlake Retirement Village in South Oklahoma City. A family Memorial service was held on July 10, 2021. We are so grateful for Crawford Family Funeral Service for all of their special kindness and compassion.
