Together they raised two wonderful children and then they carried the precious title of "Grandparents". Tootsie loved to meet and visit with people. She enjoyed cooking and would whip something from the kitchen when she had the opportunity. Tootsie loved to shop and go to yard sales. She was always up for a fun trip to look for a bargain. Tootsie loved her family and being with them. Time spent with her family and memories made with each of them were precious to her heart.

Tootsie leaves behind to cherish her memory, her loving husband of 58 years, William of the home, one daughter, Vicki Watkins and husband Randy, one son, Ricky Owens and wife Debbie all of Waldron, Arkansas. Nana will forever be missed by her grandsons, Shannon Rogers, Dustin Owens and Zac O'Hagen, and one great grandson, Dawson Owens.
