Bessie Ramirez, 79, was born on March 17, 1941 at Kiowa Indian Hospital in Lawton, Oklahoma to Jacob Sherwood Tsotigh and Josephine (Kodaseet) Tsotigh. Bessie passed away on Monday, December 7, 2020 at Corn Heritage Nursing Home in Corn, Oklahoma. Bessie was raised in and around Carnegie, Oklahoma by Johnson and Fannie Tsotigh Smith. She attended Carnegie Public Schools, later attending trade school to learn clerical duties. Bessie married the love of her life, Apolinar Ramirez, on April 26, 1968. They settled into a home that they would share for many years in the town of Verden, Oklahoma. Bessie worked as a teacher's assistant at Verden Public Schools, eventually opening up her own in-home daycare. Bessie had a love for children and had her hand at helping many parents raise their kids. She treated each and every one of them as if they were her own. Bessie and her husband eventually moved back to Carnegie to be close to Kristi and her family. Bessie loved painting, gardening, and baking. She enjoyed spending her free time going to pow-wow's, crafting, and decorating cakes. If she wasn't busy in the house, you could find her spending time with her daughter, Kristi, and her beloved grandkids. She was the best grandma that any kid could ask for, as she often spoiled them to no end. She loved watching her grandson and granddaughter play sports. Bessie was very active as an officer and member of the American War Mothers - Kiowa Chapter 18 for many years. She was very proud of her son and daughter's service in the US Navy. Bessie was always up to going and doing just about anything � her smile and personality were just a few of the things her family will miss the most about her. She will be greatly missed by so many family members and friends.
