Sara Wagoshe Ramsay went home to be with her Lord and Savior Wed. evening, Dec. 21, 2022 in Fairfax, OK.
Sara was a much-loved fixture of the Pawhuska community. She was a longtime employee at the former Maverick store where she was affectionately referred to as “The Beer Lady”. However, most will remember her for her willingness to reach out to anyone who might need her help.
She adored her cats and was known to rescue hungry, homeless kittens that she referred to as “my babies”.
Sara’s kind and generous heart, along with her irreverent sense of humor, will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
Sara is survived by her husband, Ronald (Ron) Ramsay of Pawhuska, OK: her daughter, Lexis Ramsay (Evan Williams) of Collinsville; a son, Tele Ramsay, Arizona; her brothers, Richard Dones (Tammy); Stephen Dones, Springerville, AZ; her sisters, Debbye D. Gravitte (Danny), Roxboro, NC; Joni Leasure (Robert), Bradford, AR; Joenese Betz (James), Haynesville, LA; and special “sister” cousins, Rene Thompson (Roy) and Risa Cormier, Bokoshe, OK; and her aunt and uncle, Bobby and Lola Wagoshe Cook, Grove, Oklahoma.
She is also survived by enough nieces, nephews, grand-nieces, and grand-nephews to populate a small town! She loved them all.
Sara was the daughter of the late Beverly Wagoshe Kane and Jerry H. Bledsoe and the step-daughter of Francis E. Kane of Addison, NY. Her maternal grandparents were the late Della Perrier Howard and Russell W. Wagoshe. Her maternal great-grand parents were John Wagoshe and Agnes Bigheart Wagoshe.
She was a member of the Tzi-Zho Wah-Shtah-Ke Clan. She received her name from former chief, John Redeagle- Hei’Ki’-Pe (“Always Doing Something for Her People”). Sara lived her name and was a credit to both her name and to her people.
The family is being assisted by Kendrick McCartney Johnson Funeral Home Services, Pawhuska, OK. Services will be announced at a later date.
