Mrs. Brumfield passed from this life on May 23, 2020.

She was born August 29, 1927 to Ivor and Gracie Lockmiller.

She married Russell, a WWII veteran, in 1944. They made their home on a farm outside Purcell and had three daughters.

Leatrice was a woman of faith, and attended services at Lighthouse Worship Center. She was funny with a quick wit. She enjoyed decorating and made beautiful flower arrangements.

She and Russ traveled extensively and visited all 50 states, and her handbag always matched her shoes.  

Leatrice was preceded in death by her parents, Ivor and Gracie; husband, Russell and daughters Marqueta Vaughn, Rohna Calvert and Tammie Chada.

Leatrice is survived by her sisters, Velva Smith and Dorothy Methvin, both of Shawnee, Okla.; grandchildren, Brandon Vaughn of Purcell, Kelly Calvert and husband, Matthew McLure, of Northfield, Ill.; Scott Calvert and wife, Toni, of Purcell, and J’Koa Chada of Guthrie, Okla.; five great-grandchildren and a host of other family and friends.  

The family would like to give special thanks to the caregivers at Westbrook Gardens, Sunset Estates, and Valir Hospice Care.
