Violet Azell Ward, 83, of Roosevelt, Oklahoma, passed away Wednesday, September 24, 2008, at Comanche County Memorial Hospital in Lawton, Oklahoma.
Azell was born August 24, 1925 in Rose, Oklahoma, to Andy and Rettie (Gore) Monk. She grew up working hard on neighboring farms with her family. She was the oldest of eight children and the only girl.
Azell married Floyd Ward March 19, 1945 in Dickens, Texas. They had three wonderful children and enjoyed many years together before Floyd's death October 30, 1988. The Ward family moved from Rose to Roosevelt, Oklahoma, in 1964.

She started cleaning houses for many families in the area and was also a substitute mail carrier during the 1980's. She was active in the Senior Citizens where she volunteered to cook for many community functions. Azell was a faithful member of the First Baptist Church in Roosevelt.
