Rita Gwen Wolfenbarger, 66, passed away on April 03, 2020 at Mercy Hospital in Ada,
Rita was born on February 2, 1954 to Charlie and Elizabeth (Johnson) McKee in Antlers,
Oklahoma. Rita was raised and lived in the Buckhorn community most of her life and attended
and graduated from the Soper High School. She moved to Antlers, OK a few years ago, before
moving to McAlester, OK in the fall of 2019. Rita was a kind-hearted and loving mother,
grandmother, and friend. Most of her life was spent as a homemaker, although she held a number
of other jobs over the years including a sewing machine operator, baby-sitter, and dog breeder.
She enjoyed crafting, sewing and crocheting. She also enjoyed growing flowers and gardening.
Caring for her family was her passion and she always wanted her family near. She loved to cook
and teach her children and grandchildren her favorite recipes; like homemade yeast rolls and
biscuits. Rita loved to read the Bible and began to study many years ago with Jehovah’s
Witnesses. She shared what she learned with anyone who would listen. Her love for the truth
moved her to dedicate her life to serving her Heavenly Father, Jehovah God, and on January 24,
1998 was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. She was a member of the Antlers
Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses and attended meetings regularly there, along with her
daughter and family. Rita was preceded in death by her father, Charlie Mckee.
She is survived by sons, Paul Bradley Wolfenbarger II, and wife, Rebecca, and Adren Joe
Walfenbarger and wife, Brandi; daughter, Amanda Gwen Wren and husband, Frankie; brother,
Rickey McKee; nine grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
Rita was laid to rest on Wednesday, April 8, 2020 in the McKee Cemetery in Soper, OK.
