A well- known cooking and baking artist, Mrs. Bumley decorated more birthday, wedding, an- nivereary and special occasion confections for her friends and relatives than any other pastry chef In the vicinity. She laugh- Ily admitted that she deco- rated both of her and her hus- band's fiftieth and aixtiethwed- cling anniversary cakes. Widely acclaimed for granulated sugar Easter eggs, Mrs.Brumleyoft- en presented these as holiday gifts to her very special friends and relatives. The former sheriff's wife not only was a successful cook, but also had a very promising arts and crafts career. Mrs* Brum- ley owned and operated withthe highest degree of professional- lsm her own kiln. From out of this oven came some of the loveliest and most sought aft- er ceramic forms in the Pan= handle. Equally gifted with an oil painting talent, this pioneer lady produced eye - catching stills, portraits, landscapes and western scenes of unyleld- g quality. In May 1970, Mrs. Brumley was crowned by her granddangh- ter, Rollie Jean Welch, as the Senior CRtzen of the Year.

For over 60 years Mrs. Brum- ley attended services at the Bap- tist Church and was a very prominent missionary worker and contributor. The Baptist Standard periodical had this Christian follower on their mailing list for well over 60 years. When the ',Fun After Fifty" Club organized Mrs. Brumley was right in the midst helping and offering her services. For several years, she was an ar- dent birthday committee mem- ber. If asked how she felt, Mrs. Brumley always replied, "l'm on top of the world" always followed by her twinklng eyes and warm, beaming smile. Mrs. Brumley always lived by her own motto, "Keep your mind busy and stay active allot your life." How fortunate we all are to have had this rare and elegant lady to grace our paths.
