HANKINS

Rosemary Hankins, age 82, of Comanche, Oklahoma, formerly of Eldorado, passed away Sunday evening, June 9, 2013, at Comanche County Memorial Hospital, in Lawton.

Mrs. Hankins was born in Ft. Stockton, Texas on May 4, 1931, to Virgil H. and Minnie Deyn (Alter) Guy. Moving to Eldorado in 1937, Rosemary began school in Eldorado and moved for a short time to Chillicothe, Texas. Later she lived in Midwest City, Oklahoma, but found her way to Blair after her father, a newspaper editor, purchased the Blair paper. On August 6, 1949, Rosemary married Vern "Jiggie" Hankins, in Quanah, Texas, and they spent the next sixty-three years together before her death. After establishing their first home in Eldorado, they lived in several locations due to Jiggie"s jobs. From 1952 until 1963, Jiggie worked for a power company in Wellton, Arizona and after that they farmed in the area. In 1984, they moved to Tulia, Texas, where they farmed, until moving to the Comanche, Oklahoma area in 1997, where they continued to farm, until her death. A wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, Rosemary loved to crochet, cook, entertain her grandchildren and play games. She and Jiggie enjoyed playing dominoes, but her favorite was "just one more game" of Spite and Malice.
