Wynemia “Meme” Janell Booth Waggoner, 87, passed from this life July 19, 2021 in Duncan, OK. Visitation will be on Tuesday, July 20, at 5:30-7:00P.M. at Whitt Funeral Home. A graveside memorial service will be held on Wednesday, July 21, at 10:00A.M. at Rock Creek Cemetery under the direction of Whitt Funeral Home. Nephew, Steve Lovett, will officiate.

Wynemia was born August 22, 1933 at Pumpkin Center, OK to George “Buck” and Brooksie Belle (Ketchum) Booth.

She attended Central High grade school and Roswell, NM High School, graduating in 1951. On April 27, 1951 she married Troy Waggoner in Roswell where they made their home until 2011 when they moved back to Duncan due to declining health. They were married 62 years when Troy passed away in 2013.

In early years, Wynemia was known by Nemo and Nema but was renamed to Meme when niece Kathy learned to talk.

Wynemia worked 35 years for Southwest Public Service in Roswell, retiring in 1994. Meme and Troy enjoyed many things like collecting and selling antiques, “flipping” houses and singing good old Gospel hymns at family gatherings and later with friends at Ashbrook Village Assisted Living in Duncan. Meme also enjoyed jigsaw puzzles, word searches, crochet, and growing her roses. She loved hummingbirds and had numerous feeders as well as hummingbird jewelry, paintings, collectibles, and even a hummingbird rubber stamp for her mail and checks.
