Obituary of Linda Rae Witzansky

Rex and Linda met at Commerce High School and married soon after. Together they raised two children and attended every sporting event, extracurricular activity, and school program for both their children and all their grandchildren. Together they loved to work in the yard and their home was always the central gathering place for friends and family activities. Rex, a.k.a. “Papa”, shared a passion for sports and faithfully supported the Oklahoma Sooners, rain or shine. Linda, a.k.a. “Nana”, loved to read, go to craft shows, quilt, crochet, and attempt any new crafty idea or fad. Nana and Papa are survived by their children, Troy Don Witzansky and Betsey Ellen Saltzman and their spouses Denise Witzansky and Michael Saltzman, grandchildren Zachary & Olivia Witzansky and Samuel & Max Saltzman. Rex Eugene Witzansky, born June 2, 1941, passed on to Heaven on September 10, 2020. Rex was born in Joplin, Missouri to August and Ella Witzansky. He was the second of three children. Rex served in the U.S. Army as a medic then completed college at the University of Central Oklahoma and began his career as a city planner and accountant. Rex is survived by a sister Sharron Blair, a brother Don Witzansky, along with their spouses Walter Blair and Pat Witzansky. Linda Rae Witzansky, born March 30, 1942, passed on to Heaven to join her beloved Rex on September 7, 2021. Linda was born in Miami, Oklahoma to Bussie and Dora (Tootie) Corbus. She was the eldest of two girls. Linda graduated from Pittsburg State University and began sharing her gift of teaching children for over 40 years in various public schools and could always find time to take in a movie. Linda is survived by a brother-in-law, Bernard Waybright, nephews Brian and Scott Waybright and their families. Rex and Linda were greatly loved and will be deeply missed.
