Obituary for Ruth Ann Perkins

Ruth Ann Brasher Perkins went home to her Savior on Sunday, December 30th, 2018. She was born to Noble Harold and Mary Jo Watson Brasher on March 4th, 1949 in De Queen, AR. She soon after moved with her parents to Oklahoma City, OK where she lived the rest of her life. When she was three, she was joined by her brother, Billy Wayne Brasher. Ruth Ann was raised in a Christian home, and was baptized into Christ as a teen. She was a lifelong member of the Church of Christ and attended the West Metro congregation for many years until her passing. Her early education was in Oklahoma City at Patrick Henry Elementary, and culminated with her graduation in 1967 from Southeast High School. She was extremely proud to be Spartan. She met her husband of 49 years, Dwight Lynn Perkins at church in 1968. They were married in Oklahoma City on August 9th, 1969. She held many jobs, but found her most rewarding employment outside of the home in her later years, working as math and reading tutor in the Moore Schools District. She worked very hard often behind the scenes at what she considered her real vocation(s) as a mother, grandmother and wife of an Elder in The Church. She loved working in her gardens and watching her grandkids, but was always one of the first to help when someone needed it. She also never passed up an opportunity to play a sometimes elaborate practical joke. Her personality was larger than the body she had come to inhabit in the last few years. She battled the latest recurrence of her cancer as long as she could and was ready to move on to her permanent home. She was preceded by her parents, and brother. She is survived by her husband, Dwight of the home, her sons, Michael and wife Stephanie of Edmond, Stephen and his wife, Leah of Newcastle, and her beloved grandchildren, Luke, Gabrielle, Evie, Alexander, James and Christopher, her mother in law, Mary Ann Perkins of Mustang as well as many cousins, aunts, uncles and neighbors. Services will be held at 2:00 on Thursday January 3rd at West Metro Church of Christ in Yukon with burial to follow in the Mustang Cemetery, Mustang, Oklahoma.
