NORMAN — Billye Jo Logan was born Sept. 11, 1926, at Lamar to Fred B. Wilcox and Ruby (Duke) Wilcox and passed from this life Wednesday, April 17, 2013, in Norman at the age of 86.

Services will be 11 a.m. Tuesday at the First Baptist Church in Noble, with Dr. Cleve Haley, pastor, officiating. Interment will be at 3 p.m. at the Wetumka Cemetery under the direction of Williamson-Spradlin Funeral Home in Wetumka.

Survivors are her children Elaine McGrath of New Zealand, Larry and Thelma Logan of Mustang, Deanna Findley of Lexington and Wendy and Ken Sykes of Sand Springs; 12 grandchildren; 23 great-grandchildren; a great-great-grandchild; a sister, Audrey Ramsey of Holdenville; and several other relatives and many friends.
