 It   is   with   deep   sadness   and   broken   hearts   that   we   announce    the    passing    of    our    loving    wife,    mother,    MeeMaw,   sister,   and   aunt   Emita   Ann   Whicker   (née   Day) on Sunday, February 16, 2020,  at  the  age  of  71  years  in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Born in Ada, Oklahoma, on February 3, 1949 to J.L.

Spending    a    brief    time    in    Minnesota    where    she    tragically    lost    her    infant    daughter      Tamala,      Emita      moved back to Corpus Christi, where she met the love of her life, Joel Whicker. Emita and Joel   married   on   December   3,    1977.    Their    daughter,    Kasaundra Whicker, was born in 1979 and shortly thereafter they  moved  to  Wynnewood,  Oklahoma.

The      family      celebrates      Emita’s   life,   knowing   that   she   is   now   at   peace,   and   surrounded   by   her   family   and     friends     who     have     previously  passed.  Emita  is  pre-deceased  by  her  parents  J.L.  and  Ruth  Day;  two  of her  beloved  children,  Tamala  Mischelle  and  Travis  Roice  Beaufeaux,   as   well   as   her   loving sister Valene Ray (née Day).  Emita  is  survived  by  her   devoted   husband   Joel   Whicker  of  Oklahoma  City,  Oklahoma;   her   brothers Harly Day (Karen) of Corpus Christi, Texas and Truitt Day (Debbie) of Calallen, Texas; son  Tate  Beaufeaux  (Sheila)  of  Choctaw,  Oklahoma,  and  daughter  Kasaundra  Whicker  of  Oklahoma  City;  as  well as   her   grandchildren   Bret   Beaufeaux of New York, New York;  Trenton  Beaufeaux  of Denton,  Texas;  Travis  and Carter   Ryan   of   Oklahoma   City;  and  Jasper  Beaufeaux of  Choctaw,  Oklahoma;  and numerous   nieces,   nephews,   and cousins.Arrangements                 for                 cremation   were   under   the   direction  of  Oklahoma  City  Cremation in accordance with Emita’s  wishes.  Her  life  will  be  celebrated  at  a  memorial  service  at  a  later  date  and  posted when available.
