On Saturday, October 30, 2021, Wanda Joyce Brown, loving wife, mother, and grandmother passed away at the age of 81.
Wanda was born in Talihina, OK on August 14, 1940 to the late Miles Ivan and Lena Mae Walker. The family later moved to the Oklahoma City area where she graduated from Del City High School.
She enjoyed life as a sister, aunt, cousin and friend of so many. As a daughter, her continued care and love provided her parents comfort in their lives. As a mother and grandmother she was truly a best friend. As a coach's wife and mother of two active children, she sacrificed many hours sitting in those hard seats watching football, baseball, basketball, track, and wrestling, first in Geary and then in Shawnee. Her husband Bob made up this time spent, many times over, with his loving care and devotion to her. Their love stood the test of time.
Wanda rejoins her loved ones, brother, Frank Richard Walker and son, Mark David Inglis.
Wanda is survived by her husband Bob and their daughter Robbin (John) Kinard; daughter-in-law, Toni Inglis; grandchildren, Casse Bennett (with great granddaughter Paige), Ashlie (Dustin) Simpson (with great grandsons Kasen, Creed, and Kash) and Logan Kinard; and numerous nieces and nephews.
A funeral ceremony will be held at the Walker Funeral Service Chapel on Friday, November 5, 2021 at 11:00 am. Following the ceremony, Wanda will be laid to rest at 2pm at Geary Cemetery in Geary, Oklahoma. Wanda's family will be available to greet friends a the funeral home on Thursday from 4-6pm. Those wishing to say good bye may do so on Wednesday or Thursday until 6pm.

Wanda was always there to brighten the lives of others by sharing her good spirit and giving joy through her smile. She will be missed by all of those she touched.
