Feb 24, 1918 - Jan 13, 2013 OKLAHOMA CITY Drusilla V. Cavin passed from this life to eternal rest on January 13, 2013. Dru was born to Thomas Payne Jones and Dozena Carnahan February 24, 1918, in Wainwright, OK. She graduated from Wainwright High School and East Central State College in Ada, OK. While in high school, a new neighbor moved in across the street. Of course, Riley Cavin was that neighbor, and they entered into a loving marriage in 1941. Two children were born to this partnership, and Dru placed priority on parenting the children and keeping a Christian home. However, Dru also developed two passions in life besides her family. From a young woman until her death, she was an avid painter and a serious antiques collector. Predeceasing Dru were her parents; two sisters, Lela and Thelma; niece, Phyllis Dunn; and in 1988, her beloved husband of almost 50 years. Dru was a lifelong member of the Church of Christ. She placed emphasis on living a moral life and will be remembered as a faithful Christian. Surviving Dru are her son, Riley Cavin, Jr., of Houston, TX; daughter, Nancy McMahon and husband Doug, of Dallas, TX; grandchildren, John, Heather, David, Ashley and Hollis; and four great-grandchildren. She is also survived by many nephews and nieces; a cousin, Mabel Boss, of Muskogee, OK; and several longtime friends. Visitation will be at Buchanan funeral home tonight, 4-8 p.m. Services will be held at North MacArthur Church of Christ on Wednesday, January 16, 2013, at 11 a.m. Memorial contributions may be made to North MacArthur Church of Christ, 9300 N MacArthur, Oklahoma City, OK 73132.
