Pamela Jeane Waitman, 72, of Dibble, died Thursday, July 27, 2023, in Lexington, Oklahoma. The daughter of Horace Wells and Willie Mae Wells (Ashford), Pam was born on July 9, 1951, in Purcell, Oklahoma.
Pam graduated Salutatorian of the Dibble Class of 1969 and graduated with honors in nursing from Oklahoma City Community College in 1994. Pam married the love of her life, Tony Waitman, on April 5, 1971, in Clay County, Texas.
Pam had many careers in her lifetime. After high school she was a member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, owned and operated a ceramic shop in Dibble, was oilfield receptionist and bookkeeper for Nipper Drilling and W.W. Drilling, was a substitute teacher and an in-home caregiver, and later had a long career as a highly respected RN at both Jim Thorpe Rehabilitation Center and Southwest Medical Center.
Pam was a gifted artist. Her hobbies in painting, crochet, macramé, and sewing eventually moved to exquisite works of art in handmade quilts, specialty purses, and leather works. More than working with her hands to serve others and create art, she loved Jesus and her family. Pam spent her twilight years committing scripture to heart and sharing the love of The Lord with everyone she met.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Willie Mae and Horace; sister, Katherlyn Wells; brothers, Michael Wells and Jimmy Wells; stepson, Michael Tony Waitman; stepdaughter Angela Waitman Johnson; husband, Tony; and daughter, Tonya.
Pam is survived by her daughter, Susan Wyant and her husband, Greg, of Dibble; son, Paul Waitman, his wife, Brandie, and children Korri, Seth, and Ryder, of Dibble; son, Billy Waitman of the home; grandson, Tyler Waitman, wife Cami and son Wylder, of Dibble; grandson, Kyle Wyant, wife Jona, son A.J. and daughter Parker, of Blanchard; granddaughter Lena Wyant of Ada; granddaughter, Shelly McGee and husband, Austin, of Alva; granddaughter Madison Fitch and husband, Nathan, of Chickasha; numerous nieces and nephews; and many other family and friends.
Pam’s going home celebration will be at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, August 5, 2023, at Middleberg Baptist Church, 2341 Old HWY 62, Blanchard, Oklahoma.
Arrangements are under the direction of Moore Funeral and Cremation.
