Donna Ransom

March 24, 1949 — March 10, 2021

Oklahoma City

Donna Joyce Ransom, resident of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, formerly of Wakita, Oklahoma and Enid, Oklahoma, passed away at age 71 on March 10, 2021 at Christus Santa Rosa Hospital in San Antonio, Texas.

Donna was born in Anthony, Kansas on March 24, 1949 to Emil and Bertha Cink.  She was raised near Wakita, Oklahoma on their family farm. Donna graduated from Wakita High School in 1967. After high school she went on to attend college at Northern Oklahoma College in Tonkawa, Oklahoma.

Donna married her one true love, Donald R. Ransom, on May 31, 1968. The two of them were still madly in love when she went home to be with The Lord. They were blessed with fifty-two years of marriage.

She worked as a bookkeeper for various companies in the oil industry for over twenty years.  She also assisted her husband, Don, with his in-home business.  She enjoyed garage sales, antiquing and bargain hunting.  She was passionate about her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.  They were her life.

Donna is survived by her spouse, Donald Ransom; her children, Rich and Candice Ransom, Frankie Unruh, Randy and Skye Ransom, Charel and Jordan Cooper, Sara Lyon and Joel and Jenny Lyon; her fifteen grandchildren and four great-children; her sisters, Phyllis Devery, Bernadette Sheflin and Marcella Hinkle and a host of nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Emil and Bertha Cink and her sister, Carolyn Little.

She will be forever remembered for her infinite selflessness, deeply generous heart, her infectious smile and her incredible sense of humor. Her concern and focus were rarely, if ever, for herself. She truly lived her life in service to others.
