Ranielle (Iverson) Wilson

Nov. 1, 1960 — Oct. 19, 2012

MARLOW — Ranielle (Iverson) Wilson, 51, died at her home in Satellite Beach, Fla., on Friday, Oct. 19, 2012, after a courageous fight with recurrent cervical cancer. She fought to the end never giving up.

A graveside service will be held 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27, at the Duncan Cemetery under the direction of Don Grantham Funeral Home.

Ranielle was born Nov. 1, 1960, in Duncan, to Devona (Hines) Bruseau and Weldon Ray Iverson. She attended school in Marlow and graduated from Marlow High School in 1978. She married her best friend, Mike Wilson, on July 23, 1982. They have one son, Derek Chase Wilson, of Broken Arrow.

Ranielle lived in Phoenix, Ariz., several years, where she loved the Sonoran Desert, the gorgeous sunsets, and tubing down the Salt River. However, her greatest enjoyment in this life was the ocean. Ranielle loved to travel and enjoyed vacations with her family often.    

Ranielle’s career was in banking and mortgage lending. She excelled in both with her numerous awards, including “Employee of the Year.” Ranielle was also co-founder of Henry and Harry’s, a professional investigating firm. She was dedicated to her work, but her husband and her son always came first.  

Preceding her in death was her husband Mike, her mother Devona Bruseau, her stepfather Gregg Bruseau, and her grandmother Viola (McCarley) Hines.

Survivors in addition to her son are her brother, Rob Iverson, of Duncan and his children, RJ Iverson and Kassidy Iverson, both of Marlow. Her sister, Trinity (Bruseau) Perkins of Edmond and her husband Micah and their children Tommy Perkins and Jenna Perkins. Her sister, Renee (Iverson) Gibbs of Satellite Beach, Fla., and her husband Steve and their children Rhiannon Iverson of Satellite Beach; Slade Gibbs of Tallahassee, Fla., and Kiley Gibbs of Tallahassee. Also, her niece Hailey Schwarz and nephew Joe Schwarz, both of Satellite Beach.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
