Holly Dawn Winters

Edgar's picture

Early in the morning of Saturday, April 21, as she lay sleeping, Holly Dawn Winters went home. She was not alone as our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was gently holding her hand. She was known by many as a Christian servant, wife, mother, and friend. Born in Houston on December 18, 1970, Holly spent the early years of her youth in Cordell, Oklahoma. Her family moved to Clinton, Oklahoma where she graduated from high school in 1989. She attended Oklahoma State University where she joined the Kappa Alpha Theta Sorority and graduated with a degree in Sociology. High school and college were great times for Holly where she made many great friends that she spoke of often. After graduating, she moved to Weatherford, Oklahoma where she married Aaron Winters. It was during this time that she attained a masters degree from SWOSU in Psychology, worked at Foss Lake Adventure Program, and started a family. With the birth of her first child, Holly found her true calling as a homemaker. For the rest of her life, she would enjoy the blessing of being a wife and mother. This blessing was shared to a much greater extent by her children and husband. While many would say that she lived a simple life, it would be more accurate to say she lived a Christ-centered one. She filled her days spreading joy throughout her family and community. The true measure of this girl’s life is in the amazing relationships that she made. Holly was preceded in death by her grandparents. She is survived by her husband, Aaron Winters, her daughter Oakley, son Braxton, parents Dr. Charles and Sue Turner of Weatherford; brother Kerby Picard of Dallas, Texas; step sister Dana Russell of Spavina, Oklahoma; step sister Tina Turner of Green Forest, Arkansas; and in laws Eddie and Linda Berrong of Weatherford. Funeral services for Holly Dawn Winters, 47 year-old Weatherford, Oklahoma resident, were held Friday, April 27, 2018, 2:00 P.M. at the First Baptist Church with Earl Stephenson officiating. Burial followed in Greenwood Cemetery under the direction of Lockstone Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Weatherford First Choice Pregnancy Center
