ENID, OK — Beverly Horne, longtime resident of Enid, OK, died Saturday, August 24, 2013, in Colorado Springs, CO, after a long illness with dementia.

Beverly was born June 30, 1931, to Eula May and Tom S. Gafford in Oklahoma City and was the youngest of four children.

She was a graduate of Oklahoma City Central High School and was a Red Skirt Pep Club member. Beverly also attended Oklahoma A&M, now Oklahoma State University, where she was a member of Alpha Delta Phi.

Beverly married Roy W. Horne June 23, 1951.

They moved to Enid, OK, in 1963, and she was a long-active member of the community while raising their family and developing their business, Horne Oil Co.

Beverly was a member of SCORE, PEO and The Assistance League and served on Enid Board of Realtors.

Beverly was active in tennis, golf, bridge and an avid Oklahoma State sports fan. Beverly and Roy were season ticket-holders to OSU football for many years. They traveled to many bowl games and a final four appearance for the basketball program. Go Cowboys!

In retirement, they traveled widely with many longtime friends.

Beverly moved to Colorado Springs in 1998 after the death of Roy. She was an active member of her church congregation in both Emmanuel Baptist Church in Enid and First Presbyterian Church of Colorado Springs. She participated in numerous volunteer services and especially loved those that dealt with children.
