Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. She openeth her mouth with wisdom: and in her tongue is the law of kindness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. ~Proverbs 31:10
“When caring truly matters, DYER cares.”
Cherished Memories of Corrine.. .
It was a beautiful summer day on June 23, 1948 that Willie and Nora Stell Grayson welcomed a beautiful brown eyed girl into the world. They named her Corrine in honor of her grandmother, Cora. Corrine later became affectionately known as “Rita”.
Rita was raised in Beggs, Oklahoma and attended school there where she met her soul mate, Bobby Ross. Rita and Bobby were married in the Fall of 1964. They were blessed with four children. Rita and Bobby exemplified what a “true” marriage was. They worked together to raise their four children and provide them with a loving and caring home. They were married for 52 glorious years.
Rita enjoyed being a mother and grandmother. She loved her family tremendously, and would do whatever she could to make their lives easier. Rita enjoyed taking care of her family, but shopping was her passion. She was a country girl with city girl eyes when it came to shopping.
On December 5, 2016, our “Queen Mother” on Earth was called home. She was met by her parents, Willie and Nora Grayson and her precious sister, Toledo Freeman.
She leaves behind to cherish her memory; a devoted and loving husband, Bobby Ross. Four children who loved her dearly; Billy Ross, Christine Ross Kelly, Carla Ross Erivin, and Bobby Ross Jr. Nine grandchildren whom she loved and cherished; Miyoshi Ross, Brittany Ross, Billy Ross Jr., Cortia Ross, Carissa Erivin, Savannah (Chy) Erivin, Josh Erivin, Bryce Ross and Brooklynn Ross. Two great-grandchildren, one son-in-law; Jonathan Erivin. Six siblings whom she adored; Alfred (Snook) Grayson (Tulsa, OK), Brenda Grayson (Seattle, WA), Larry (Sonny) Grayson (Beggs, OK), Willie (Buster) Grayson Jr. (Kalispell, MT), Tonette Wofford (Seattle, WA), and her baby sister, Annjeanette Winfield (New Haven, CT). She also leaves behind a host of relatives and friends.
Rita, thank you for blessing our lives as a wife, mother, sister, grandmother, aunt, cousin and friend. Our precious memories of you will live in our hearts forever.
