LEON — Memorial graveside services for Wanda Jo Goldman Frazier are set for 3 p.m., Friday, November 11, 2016, in the Leon Cemetery, Leon, Okla., with the Rev. John Sconce officiating. Mrs. Frazier, 82, of Palm Bay, Fla., and resident of Leon, Okla., until December 2013, went to be with our Lord, passing  on August 12, 2016, at Holmes Regional Hospital in Melbourne, Fla.
Wanda was the eldest of four children born to Garnet (Dick) Goldman and Cleta Lee Brashear Goldman on February 14, 1934, in Marietta, Okla. In addition, Wanda has a second sister born to Cleta and Jack Rhoades.
Wanda attended Marietta School. As an adult she went to nursing school and became an LPN, working for Dr. Mac Looney. While attending school, Wanda was forced to put some of her children in an orphanage until she was able to finish school and could support them. She worked very hard to accomplish her goal and reunite her family, as “Family” meant so very much to her. While working with Dr. Looney, she met Joe Ben Frazier whose mother was a patient. Joe and Wanda began a relationship and married on February 23, 1957, in Gainesville, Texas, and later had two children. Marriage to Joe was her second marriage, formerly being married to Larry Don Patton, of which they had five children together.
Wanda was retired and enjoyed caring for her home and family. She enjoyed gardening, canning, sewing, baking and in her leisure time painting, quilting, and reading.
She was for many years a member of Oklahoma Home & Community Education (OHCE) where she held many positions during her tenure and enjoyed entering the Love County Fair, with her fine baking of her award winning Grand Champion Chocolate Cake with Mocha Chocolate Frosting. She was also a member of the Leon Baptist Church where she taught the Ladies Sunday School Class and was the Music Director for many years. She was a former member of Mary Kay and Toast Masters organizations as well as a member of the Love County Election Board. Wanda was also a lifetime member of the NCOA Auxiliary.
Wanda was a devoted wife to Joe and upon his retirement from the U.S. Army in 1981, they resided in Fairbanks, Alaska, where both in their leisure enjoyed square dancing including teaching, calling, and traveling to many conventions for competitions. Wanda, at this time, worked for the Bank of The North as a Customer Service Rep, until she retired. Joe and Wanda decided to return “HOME” to Leon to farm and later run a trucking business. Joe and Wanda enjoyed traveling the United States together and seeing the countryside, towns and cities in the semi. In her later years before the death of Joe, the couple would spend many evenings sitting on their front porch sipping coffee and telling stories of their lives together to anyone with a listening ear.
Upon Joe’s death Wanda decided to move to Florida, living with her daughter Carol and Carol’s husband, Rick, until her passing.
