Judy Goddard Wreath

MOORE — Judy Goddard Wreath was born to Edgar and Goldie Goddard on Jan. 22, 1947, in Tipton. She lived all her life in Oklahoma, worked hard, spread the love of God and made life-long friends everywhere she went. As a young teenager, she moved to Oklahoma City with her family and graduated from Western Heights High School in 1964. She lived a full, generous life and died unexpectedly on Oct. 19, 2013, in her home in Moore.

Judy was preceded in death by her parents; her brother, Danny; and her husband, Harvey’s parents; and two siblings.

She is survived by a large family including one sister, cousins, and many nieces and nephews. Judy leaves behind her beloved husband, Harvey Wreath, three daughters, two sons, 21 grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren.

Married on Oct. 21, 1973, Judy and her husband Harvey Wreath were just shy of celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary when she passed. Their decades together exemplified marital union and teamwork. Judy was truly Harvey’s right arm just as he was hers and thinking of them apart feels unnatural to everyone who loves them.

She loved family, a good party, sewing for those in need, hot rods, music and Mr. H. Judy was a lover of music. She enjoyed Elvis, heavy symphony music, old-fashioned spirituals and anything her daddy played on his guitar.

Judy was active with and devoted to her children from the cradle through adulthood. She placed a high value on play and joyfulness in the home, from playing dress up and having fashion shows to painting little hot wheels or burying them in the dirt. She knew how to play and never wanted any child to go without or feel lonely.

Most importantly, Judy knew how to pray, and she shared that knowledge with anyone who would listen. In Harvey and Judy’s home, the grandkids ruled. The bedrooms were always decked out with fun toys, electronics and comfortable beds, and the kitchen was always overflowing with exactly the right junk foods.
