Wanda Christmas was born on January 12, 1952, in Sapulpa, Oklahoma to Granville and Gertrude Ragsdale and departed to her Heavenly home on August 25th, 2023, surrounded by her loving husband of 55 years and her four daughters by her side. Wanda is survived by her husband, Arlie Christmas, daughters: Tonya and Robert Park of Sperry, Oklahoma, Carmen and Micael Bain of Sand Springs, OK, Tiffany and Steve Capehart of Kiefer, OK, Monica Simmons and Mikel Males of Bristow, OK and 2 special boys that she loved like her own: Mauricio Gavala and Landon Fabela. Grandkids: Zac Wenzel and wife, Shelby, Carlos Capehart, Lauren Scott, Slade Murrell and wife, Macaulay, Spencer Capehart, Jagger Park, Chandler Jezik and husband, Tanner, Acey Akin, Arlee Cooper Park, Bailey Capehart and wife, Jessica, and Brock Capehart along with great grandson, Jaxton Scott and great granddaughters: Sailor Murrell and Ivy Mccarver and her canine companion Trixie. Wanda is also survived by her siblings: Claude Ragsdale and wife Tina, Bobby Ragsdale, Linda Jennings and the late Merle Jennings, Shirley Dodson and husband, Phil, brother-in-law, Danny and sister-in-law, Mona. Wanda is preceded in death by her parents: Grandville and Gertrude Ragsdale, sister: Betty Brown and sisters-in-law, Bonnie Mills, Sue Harris and Joyce Ragsdale. She is also preceded and survived by many friends and family members that loved her dearly. Wanda graduated from the University of Tulsa in 1980 and began her 32 years in education and her passion for coaching was apparent, even when she was a spectator.
Wanda opened her heart and home to everyone. The more people she had around her for holidays and Sunday dinners, the happier she was. Wanda was the sweetest, kindest, and most genuine person. She always saw the good in everyone and was an optimist to the end.
Although our lives were so much happier with her in it, we are at peace knowing our beautiful wife, mother, MeMe, sister, aunt, and friend is no longer in pain and riding horses down the streets of gold with Jody Mock, best friend, and Roy Rogers.
