Dorothy V. McBroom

Funeral services for Dorothy V. McBroom, 91, were held Tuesday, January 7, 2020 at the Wilson-Little Funeral Home Chapel. Interment was at Hillside Cemetery in Purcell under the direction of the Wilson-Little Funeral Home in Purcell.

Mrs. McBroom, beloved matriarch of the McBroom family, ascended into heaven Friday, January 3, 2020.

She was born March 30, 1928 in Harlingen, Texas, to Russell and Hattie (Kobel) Bingley.

Dorothy enjoyed a distinguished career in nursing at Norman Regional Hospital. After her retirement, she continued to provide nursing care for family and friends in her community.

She was involved in McClain County Home Extension, and traveled with the OU Professor Student Organization. She also volunteered for years at the Trinity United Methodist Church preparing countless meals for the local Rotarians.

She loved traveling and traveled the world abroad. Dorothy was an amazing cook, loved tending to her yard and was an avid reader. Family was her absolute top priority.  Known by most as “Granny”, Dorothy always opened her home as a sanctuary and a fun house. And not only to her grandchildren and other family, but to everyone. She was kind hearted; a sweet and genuine lady, and she will be dearly missed!

She is survived by her children, Tanya Herell, Purcell, Okla., Sandra Farha and husband, Emile, of Oklahoma City, Okla., Terry McBroom and wife, Sandra, of Oklahoma City, Okla., and Shelly McBroom of the home; her brother, Russell “Chris” Bingley and wife, Mary, of Cody, Wyo.; four grandchildren, Christina Duthie and husband, Nick, of Oklahoma City, Robbie Goodman of Chicago, Ill., Tommie Herell and wife, Shawna, of Norman, Okla., and Savanah McBroom of Oklahoma City and seven great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by husband, W.L. “Mack” McBroom, a prominent local rancher. 

The family wishes to thank all the friends and medical staff for the outpouring of love and affection toward their mother. May you all live as long, as wonderful and as blessed a life as Granny, and celebrate each and every day.
