Raima Joyce Halliburton

Raima Joyce Halliburton died peacefully at the age of 93 surrounded by loving family on October 11, 2013, in her home of Tulsa, OK. She was born to Pearl and Jesse Wilson on February 9, 1920, in Greenwood, AR. She met and married her husband of 72 years, Sam, in Ft. Smith, AR, on November 6, 1941. She retired from ONEOk, where she supervised the processing of employee health insurance claims, and became active in the ONGoers retired employees organization. Raima loved the out-of-doors, spending countless weekends at the lake with family and friends boating and waterskiing, and especially sitting on the lakeside patio and visiting. Raima also played golf, and took up knitting after retirement. She also enjoyed gardening. Raima was an avid country music fan long before it became fashionable and travelled many times to Nashville. Sam and Raima enjoyed RV travel, spending weeks on the road to Branson and south Texas with friends. For many years, they also flew to Hawaii for golfing and relaxation. She was a breast cancer survivor of more than 40 years, and never missed a televised Sunday morning broadcast of services at First Presbyterian Church in Tulsa. Raima was preceded in death by her parents and two brothers, Roger and Damon. In addition to Sam, she is survived by her son, Richard and wife, Sherye; granddaughter, Amy Tate and husband, Lance; and grandson, David and wife, Amy and their two sons, Aaron and Connor. In lieu of flowers, contributions in her honor should be made to the TV Ministry of First Presbyterian Church, or to the Tulsa Affiliate of Susan G. Komen. A Memorial Service was held at Tuesday, October 15, 2013 at First Presbyterian Church, Tulsa, OK.
