Carol Hull went to be with her Lord and Savior on Sunday June 11, 2017 at the age of 82 years after a brave battle with Alzheimer’s disease.
She was born January 21, 1935 in Oklahoma City to Loren and Xenia Timmons. She was graduated from Northwest Classen High School class of 1953 and attended Oklahoma State University in Stillwater where she met her future husband JJ Hull Jr. of Beggs.
Carol and Jim were married on November 7, 1954 in Oklahoma City and made their home on the Hull family ranch in Beggs.
Their union was blessed with three sons James J Hull III, William Loren Hull and John Michael Hull.
She enjoyed attending OSU football games for many years with her husband, sons and good friend Joan Eaton.
The family built a cabin near Eagle Nest New Mexico where Carol camped with her family as a young girl. They enjoyed many vacations skiing and hiking in the beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountains; and Carol looked forward to the great shopping in Taos, Red River and Santa Fe!
Carol was a member of the Delta Zeta sorority at OSU. She was a member of the Okmulgee Service League, was a Pink Lady at the Okmulgee Memorial Hospital, member of the First Baptist Church Choir, and was a Cub Scout Den Mother. She enjoyed playing golf, loved to take bus trips and travel in the US and Europe.
Carol was preceded in death by her parents Loren and Xenia Timmons, her husband JJ Hull Jr and her sister Kay Cooke.
She is survived by her three sons and their wives, Jim and Denise of Broken Arrow, Bill and Carol of Beggs, and John and Brenda of Broken Arrow. Seven grandchildren: Courtney Hull of Evergreen CO; James Hull IV of Broken Arrow, Chelsea Mayes of Edmond, Quinton Hull and Loren Hull of Beggs; Chris Hull and Patrick Hull of Broken Arrow; and two great grandchildren Xander and Jasper Mayes of Edmond. Also three nieces Cathy Damen of Broken Arrow, Sharon Young of Harrah and Teresa Springer of Bethany.
Carol raised her sons with a gentle, loving spirit but had a firm hand when it was needed. Her family and friends will miss her sweet smile and lovely laugh; but we know her final home is heaven as it should be.
The family wishes to express sincere thanks to Brookdale Assisted Living in Broken Arrow and Hospice of Green Country for their excellent, compassionate care of Carol.
