Alma Jean (McCarroll) Smith was the second born child to the union of Willie James McCarroll, Sr. and Lois Jean (Hennesy) McCarroll on Jan. 21, 1955 in Wynnewood, Okla.
A lifetime resident of Ardmore, Alma attended Dunbar Elementary School, Ardmore Douglass High School, and graduated from Ardmore High School with the class of 1973. She was a member of the Pep Club while she attended Ardmore Douglas High School and loved cheering for her older brother in football.
Alma was a loving and very caring person. She loved to babysit and care for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved to cook and was always ready to plan for birthdays, holidays and special occasions. She will be well remembered by her nieces and nephews for her playful attitude, always saying or doing something to make them laugh. She will be greatly missed.
