Obituary

Beverly Ann Blankenship passed away on July 24, 2022, in Oklahoma City at the age of 88. Beverly was born to parents Harvey Piper and Lucille Piper on September 11, 1933, in Oklahoma City. She grew up in Oklahoma City where she met her dear Charlie, and they were married for 53 years. Together they raised 6 children whom they loved very much. Throughout Beverly's life, she was known for her faith in God and being an amazing mother who had a true craft for cooking. We all loved Mamas sourdough pancakes and those fried tacos are on all our family menus. Mama was a true artist in the kitchen, and there was always enough food for everyone. Beverly will be missed by all who knew her and loved her including all her lifelong friends in Nocona Texas and in Yukon.

Our Mama lost her life to dementia. It began to take her at least 10 years ago. She slowly lost all her memories as we had to adjust to this horrible disease. Despite it all, Mama always had the sweetest giggle and smile to every question we would try to ask her. She had the sweetest disposition.

Beverly is preceded in death by her husband, Charles Blankenship; parents, Harvey Piper and Lucille Piper; children, Charles Blankenship Jr, Alan Blankenship, Susan Shondel and siblings, Gary Piper, and Sonny Piper.

Beverly leaves behind to cherish her memories: her daughters, Donna Gilles and husband Doug Gilles, Nancy Farris and husband Ed Farris; son, Jeff Blankenship and wife Eddie Blankenship. There are so many grandchildren and great grandchildren and even some great greats that will also miss her.

We would like to thank The Baptist Village and Tradition Hospice for the best care available for our Mama. They were exceptional.

A Graveside Service to honor Beverly's life will be held on Thursday, July 28, 2022, at 10:00 AM at Resurrection Memorial Cemetery in Oklahoma City. Services are under the direction of Ingram, Smith & Turner Mortuary in Yukon, OK.
