Funerals Held For First Of Woodward Tornado Victims

KSCB News - April 23, 2012 8:11 am

Hundreds of mourners said goodbye to a

father and his two daughters who were killed when a tornado hit

Woodward.

Frank Hobbie and his daughters, 7-year-old Faith and 5-year-old

Kelly, were remembered during a graveside service at Elmwood

Cemetery Saturday.

All three died when an EF3 tornado struck their mobile home

about 12:18 a.m. April 15th. Hobbie’s 2-year-old son, Ty, was

injured and has been moved from an Amarillo, Texas, hospital to

Oklahoma City.

According to a story in Sunday’s Woodward News, Lincoln Avenue

Baptist Church Pastor Jason Dirks said the lives of Hobbie and his

daughters were tragically short, but significant because of the

mark they left on their family and the town.

Derrin Juul, his 10-year-old daughter, Rose Marie, and Steve

Peil also died in the tornado.
