Pauline PritchardSeptember 3, 1931 ~ October 6, 2017 (age 86)
Pauline Katherine Pritchard, 86, passed away October 6, 2017 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. She was born September 3, 1931 to Maudie Bell and Roy Musgrave. She attended Capitol Hill High School and then married the love of her life, Wayne Pritchard; they were married for 67 loving years. She was a homemaker, a loving and devoted wife, mother and friend.
She started each day with her morning coffee and reading the newspaper thoroughly as not to miss anything. She loved spending time with her family especially her grandkids and great grandkids. She enjoyed sitting on her patio watching the birds, butterflies and the bees buzz around her flowers, shopping at Penney's was a highlight, she enjoyed watching Wheel of Fortune and all the reality shows. She was an avid bowler and bowled on two leagues at Meridian Lanes until May 2017 when health issues forced her to stop, temporarily as she would say. Thank goodness for her bowling friends Pat and Marge who called frequently to update her on all the bowling news!! She looked forward to their phone visits.
Pauline is survived by one sister, Sheila Rhodes and husband Henry; two daughters, Paula Sinclair and husband Darryl, Lori Henke and husband Dave; three grandchildren: Greg Henke and wife Tammy, Jeff Henke, and Heather Norris; three great grandchildren: Kailey Henke, Evett Henke and Kaleb Henke.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband Wayne Pritchard; adopted son, James Musgrave; three brothers: Donald Musgrave, Virgil Musgrave and Glen Musgrave; three sisters: Jauhree Kirby, Lorene Beal Courtney and Carol Simer, one son in law, Richard Norris; and one granddaughter, Meshele Pritchard. The family would like to extend a special thanks to the Oklahoma Heart Hospital doctors and nurses that cared for our mother.
