Kathleen Mary Batchelor Brannen


Kathleen Mary Brannen (née Batchelor), affectionately known as “Leeny” to her friends, and “Queen B” to her students, was born in Syracuse, New York to Kathleen Joyce (Whitten) and Donald S. Batchelor, the fourth of five children and self-proclaimed “favorite child” (which in fact, all agreed, she was). Hugger and smoocher extraordinaire, fiercely loyal friend, Harry Potter aficionado, lifetime lover of Snoopy, champion sleeper, and long-time community volunteer, Kathleen embraced life with passion and grace.

Kathleen graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a B.A. in education and a M.S. in Deaf Education. In June of 1987 she married the love of her life, David Brannen, in Norman, OK. In 1992 they welcomed their amazing daughter, Katherine (Kate), into the world. From the Woodlands, Texas to San Antonio and from Broken Arrow to Edmond, OK, Kathleen loved, nurtured and taught children and always found a way to help others with her kind and generous spirit. After moving to Edmond in 2003, Kathleen formed a tight community of friends including her beloved “busy bees” and parents at St. Mary’s Episcopal School, her “team” at Edmond Mobile Meals, and her dear friends at Bible Study Fellowship.

Kathleen enjoyed cooking, collecting cookbooks, antiquing, and rooting for the Sooners (much to the chagrin of her UT Longhorn husband). She loved to entertain and her “Gazebo Nights” were legendary.

She is survived by David, her loving husband of thirty years, and Kate, the daughter of whom she was so immensely proud.

In addition, Kathleen is also survived by her four siblings, Laurie Batchelor of Lakeville, CT, Sarah Harrison of Norman, OK, Donald Batchelor of Southlake, TX, and Nancy Batchelor of Oak Harbor, WA.

A memorial service will be held at St. Augustine Episcopal Church located at 14700 N May Ave, Oklahoma City, OK on Friday, August 25 at 1:30 pm.

Troy David Curcie Drake


After a long hard fought battle with liver disease, David Troy Curcie Drake went
to be with his heavenly father today, July 27, 2016. At 54 years of age he was
much to young to die, but his body though it fought hard finally gave out. He was
at peace with his Father and is no longer suffering. His body is healed and we
know he is watching us from Heaven. He was a loving and devoted son, brother,
father and grandfather and friend to many. He was his 4 children's rock and
greatest supporter and was always wanting to spend time with his 5
grandchildren.

In his last days, Troy was surrounded by 3 of his 4 children, Levi,
<>Lacey and Jordan and they brought a great comfort to him.

James Kyle Wiginton

James Kyle Wiginton of Friendswood, Texas, was surrounded by family as he entered Heaven’s Gates on May 24, 2011. 

Kyle had been diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor (glioblastoma) only three weeks prior to his passing.

Kyle was born July 4, 1961 in Seoul, Korea to missionary parents Travis and La Moyne Wiginton. He graduated from Noble High School in 1980 and received his associates’ degree while in the Air Force.

Kyle met the love of his life, Darr McCaughtry while at Noble High, and after a lifelong love affair, would have celebrated their 30th anniversary in November. They have two children, Hailey and Travis Kyle. Kyle was very demonstrative in his affections of love, always playfully teasing Darr and giving big bear hugs to his family. In his 49 years, Kyle lived life to the fullest.

Kyle was a natural athlete, playing football and basketball at NHS and basketball for the Air Force team. While his older brothers were on the OU Basketball team (Craig as a player and Kevin as the team manager) he was chosen as one of the first ball-boys for the Sooners.

In Junior High, Kyle played drums in the marching band and was also on the football team. At half-time, he would hurry to join the band .... still in his football uniform, then rejoin the team after the half-time show.

During his children’s Little League days, Kyle coached both Hailey and Travis’ basketball, baseball and softball teams. When Hailey received a softball scholarship to Sam Houston State University, Darr never missed a game and Kyle went to as many games as possible. When he wasn’t at work, you could find Kyle at Hailey’s game or at Travis’ car races or out fishing with his family. He and his family enjoyed watching sports together, especially Sooner sports. Even though he lived in Texas, Kyle proudly flew the OU flag on game days.

While in the Air Force, Kyle got the chance to go back to Korea for the first time since childhood. He thoroughly enjoyed the Koreans, their culture and their food; even kimchi.

Kyle valued hard work and thoroughly enjoyed his job in oil field transport for Stellar Corp.

James Kyle was named for his maternal grandfather, James Harris. Kyle took after his grandfather in all ways, including the ability to fix anything. Given that, our family was stunned when we realized that Kyle died on his Gr’daddy Jim’s 103rd birthday. We know they celebrated together in Heaven.

Kyle is survived by his wife, Darr; daughter, Hailey; son, Travis; parents, Travis and La Moyne Wiginton; brother, Craig and wife JoAnna; brother, Kevin and wife Michelle; sister, Kristin and girlfriend Sue; sister, Jane and husband Gaetan; brother, Richard; sister, Shirley Brister; in-laws Rex and Terry McCaughtry, Judy McCaughtry; and brother-in-law, Vance McCaughtry.

He is also survived by uncles, Edsel Wiginton and wife Peggy; Keith Wiginton and wife Linda; Joe Harris and wife Diana; aunts Jean Wiginton and Jamie La Marylis Jinkerson; nephews, Jeremiah, James and Halston; and niece Meg; and numerous cousins and friends in Oklahoma and Texas.

Kyle was preceded in death by his grandparents, Woodie and Julia Wiginton and Jim and Mary Harris; and uncle Bryce Wiginton.

A private family service of remembrance is scheduled for a later date.
