Colleen Ruth Renfro Wilson
Colleen Ruth Renfro Wilson passed away peacefully on August 7, 2016, in Highland, Utah, while being comforted by her adoring daughter Vicky Wilson and surrogate daughter, Janea Johnson.
Colleen was born on July, 26, 1928, in Cromwell, Oklahoma.
The second of five children born to Gayle Worley and Myrtle Modene Renfro. Colleen will be remembered for living a unique and adventurous life, filled with travel and culture.
She had an incredible love and passion for writing, especially regarding her beloved years in Saudi Arabia and all things camel.
She was one of the many beautiful members of the Kilgore Rangerettes, and proudly honored those days by bragging about her stunning high kick.
She loved her family and friends and “two lovely children which were a pleasure and delight”.
She had a way with words, made everyone laugh with her amazing wit, and comforted our souls and filled our bellies with her great cooking.
Mom we will miss you asking us to “save that,” to “wait a minute,” and inquiring about the location of your purse.
We will miss your contagious laughter, endearing sweet smile, but most of all, we will simply miss your company. FiAmanAllah (In God’s care and protection).
Interment and Graveside Services will be held Saturday, August 13, 2016, at 11 a.m. in Henderson, Texas, at Lakewood Memorial Park Cemetery.
Condolences may be sent to the family at Crawford A. Crim Funeral Home at 1414 S. Main St., Henderson, Texas, 75654. www.crawfordacrim.com.
