Obituary

Wanda Lee (Housman) Loehr went to be with the Lord on January 21, 2021.  She was born on February 25, 1924 to Erma (Barlow) Housman and Vollie Housman in Ottawa County, OK.  Wanda grew up in Miami, OK and was very proud of her Native American Indian Heritage. She was a lifelong member of the Ottawa Indian Tribe.  She attended the Ottawa 1-Room country school for 8 years before graduating from Wyandotte High School in 1942.  Over the years she enjoyed taking trips back to Oklahoma for her class reunions.

 

On October 14, 1946 she married the love of her life, Andrew Walter Loehr.  Soon after they purchased a farm and settled into their new lives together in Cooks Point, TX.  Farming and raising their two boys  Blifford and Danny was their greatest priority.  She was a proud and very active member of Cooks Point United Methodist Church.  Wanda was an avid bird lover and enjoyed watching and learning about all birds. Her favorites were hummingbirds and red birds.  She had a passion for cooking and nothing made her happier than preparing meals for her family.  As a hobby she enjoyed reading and collecting cookbooks.  She had an amazing green thumb and will always be remembered for her beautiful rose bushes.  Wanda’s greatest joy was her family.  She loved being a wife, mother, sister, grandmother and great grandmother.

She was preceded in death by her parents and husband; sister, Betty Brubaker; brothers, Jehu Housman and Gerald Housman.
