Wilma Jean Heldreth met her Lord and Savior on August 30, 2019. She passed peacefully at the age of 84 in her home of 56 years surrounded by family. Services will be on Wednesday, September 4th at 10:30 a.m. at Strode Funeral Home Chapel in Stillwater.
Jean was born on November 30, 1934 in Ripley, OK to Wilmer and Pearl Hammock. She would gladly tell you the story of her birth that happened during a snowstorm when the fire department had to come to the home to help save her. She was raised on her family’s homestead and graduated from Ripley High School in 1954. She married Randall Allen Hilbert and they had two children, Keith and Linda. She later married Charles Franklin Heldreth in 1967 who also had two sons, Derek and Kirk. The family of 6 continued the operation of the family dairy there in Ripley, which was landmarked by an 8ft rooster in the front yard. She retired in April of 1996 after 42 years of milking and operating a dairy farm. They had many friends during their marriage that they enjoyed spending time with and she would fondly retell stories of their times together. She loved to reminisce about the years of raising her children and the memories they built on the farm. Perhaps one of her biggest bragging points was her grandchildren and great grandchildren of whom she was beyond proud. She greatly enjoyed watching their activities and attending their events. She was a member of Diamond Valley Community Church for many years.
She is survived by her children: Derek and wife Diane of Norman; Keith; Kirk and wife Cynthia of Oklahoma City; and Linda and husband Greg of Ripley. She is also survived by her grandchildren: Amy and husband Sean, Kirstine, Jordana, Brad, Simone and husband Tim, Kristen and husband Colby, and Joel, as well as, her great-grandchildren; Reagan, Karsten, Scotlynn, Eva, Brave, and Judah.
Our mother and grandmother was a beautiful woman known for being strong, courageous, hardworking, independent, generous, and loving. She was cherished and will be greatly missed by those who knew her and loved her. She loved God and we have peace knowing she is in His presence forever and we will meet her there one day. “I have fought the fight. I have finished the race. I have kept the faith.” 2 Timothy 4:7

I didn’t know Miss Wilma Jean very well. My name is Mica, and I’m JoJos great granddaughter, if anyone knows who that is. I was the little girl that used to go to coffee every Friday morning at Braum’s with Jojo and Miss Wilma Jean. We would sit and talk about how everyone was doing, and how I liked my new house, and things like that. I may not have known her as well as some, but I know that she was a wonderful, sweet, caring woman. She was always kind to me. When I was little, I played T-ball with her great granddaughter. She was the sweetest woman I know. I won’t be able to make it to the funeral, but I want to tell everyone that I’m sorry for your loss, and I know she will be forever in all of our hearts.

My Memories of Wilma Jean go way back. My father, Leroy Craig, used to do a lot of carpenter work for her parents, Wilmer & Pearl. Wilmer was our milk man for many years. Our family received some Christmas ornaments from the family. These were many different colored glass balls. I thought they were so beautiful.
I would look at the Ripley High School Annual & think Wilma was pretty with her blond hair.
My parents were so delighted when Wilma purchased our home place. Wilma was always so warm & welcoming if I ever wanted to look back inside her house since it was built by my father with material from the former Ripley Elementary school
Wilma always mentioned her love for Bible & church.
May God bless each of you children & grandchildren & May you continue the Christian heritage that she has left for you.
