Obituary

Loretta Keith, age 72, of Muskogee, OK passed away Sunday, May 16, 2021 at Muskogee, OK. Loretta was born in Keota, OK on November 8, 1948 the daughter of John Davis and Lorine Davis. Loretta stayed at home to take care of her children while her husband was on the road driving a truck. She wasn’t just a homemaker, she was a cook, teacher preacher, doctor and therapist. Family was everything to her and her husband. While raising the children, their home was the “Kool Aid” house for any and all of the kid’s friends or cousins to stay and eat anytime.

Loretta was baptized at an early age, letting her Christian faith be known. Loretta was very caring and selfless. There were many years she tirelessly stayed with her son Jay for months at a time while he was hospitalized at St. John Medical Center. She also courageously went back into a burning house to save her 8-month-old granddaughter Claudia, sustaining a great about of smoke inhalation and several severe burns. She aided her granddaughter Cassidy from a severe grease accident and her grandson Dalton from a glass accident on the back of his skull. She also helped her daughters raise their children. She took care of Wade, Robin, Claudia, Cassidy, Dalton and Amber 24-7. She became their second parent. Her grandkids were crazy about their Grammy or Gram. They loved going to Gram’s before and after school and always wanted to spend the weekends there too. In later years, she worked with and helped her granddaughter Cassidy at her resale store. She worked there until her husband became ill and spend most of her time with him in OKC until his death.

Loretta had love, patience and kindness that you just don’t find anymore. However, she would be brutally honest and put you in your place in a heartbeat. She wouldn’t would never lie, cheat, or steal. She was straight to the point and never minced words on what was right or wrong. She was the toughest, bravest, honest and most fearless person you would ever meet. Besides being a great parent and grandparent, she was a good listener, mentor, friend and role model.

Loretta was preceded in death by her husband and best friend Art; grandson Kieth Davis Cruse; parents Lorine and John Davis; son-in-law Danny Sanders; brothers Alvin, Glen and Harold Davis; sister Edna Faye Davis; sister-in-law Joyce Davis; brother-in-law Phil Keith; nephew Chris Davis; mother-in-law and father-in-law Charlotte and Claude Keith.
