Obituary

Wanda May Lackey entered Heaven’s gates on Thursday, January 10, 2019 at 82. The daughter of Olen “LD” and Opal Mary Newton, Wanda was born on March 29, 1936 in Vian, Oklahoma.

On September 4, 1955 in Sallisaw, Oklahoma, Wanda married the love of her life, Kenneth Leon Lackey and together shared 50 years of marriage and raising their two children. In addition to being a loving wife, devoted mother and dedicated homemaker, Wanda earned a business degree from Draughon School of Business where she was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Scholarship. She worked for many different businesses including as a bookkeeper for Studebaker Dealership in Sallisaw, Oklahoma and as a secretary for an insurance company in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

I never had the blessing of meeting and knowing you, but I know Donnie Khristopher spoke of your unconditional love and I also know your smile lights up a room.

I love you so much, Nana. Fly high, free of pain. Give Papaw a hug from me! I’ll see you again someday. I remember you teaching me how to cheat at Go Fish and giving me the appreciation for nature that I have. We’d always take breaks in the kitchen to watch the blue jays flying in the yard. I’ll miss our talks and your soft, gentle voice telling me you love me at the end of each conversation. Your love is still in my heart and I have enough of it to spread around to others. That’s what you gave to me. I love you, Nana. Sleep well. ❤️

I am so sorry for the family’s loss. Death is one of the hardest trials to cope with. May you find comfort from the future promise recorded in Revelation 21:4 which says “he [God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” We have assurance from God’s word the Bible and we can be certain God will fulfill the words from his word.
