Audie “Sharon” Graham Chapman was born on February 28, 1943 in Eagletown, OK, to Herbert Clint and Bendet Ray Graham.
She passed peacefully from this life on Wednesday, April 8, 2020 at her home in Eagletown. She was 77 years old.
Sharon spent most of her life in McCurtain County. She married Jerry Bruce Chapman on February 16, 1963 in Oklahoma City, OK. They spent 57 years of marriage together until her passing.
She was a member of the First United Methodist Church of Eagletown and she was also affiliated with the Eagletown Assembly of God.
Sharon loved people. She loved to fellowship with friends and to talk about the Lord. If she knew you, she loved you. She was the type of person that encouraged everyone to be the very best that they could be. However, she never looked down on anyone for a failure. She just tried to lift them back up. She always had a positive outlook and cared about knowing people and their lives. She also loved to sing with her life-long friends, The Joy Singers. Over the years, they spent many hours preparing for weddings and funerals around a four-state area. For a number of years, she taught Sunday school and helped to mold many young hearts toward the Lord.
Sharon was preceded in death by her father & mother, Herbert Clint and Bendet Ray Graham; an infant son, Jeffrey Bruce Chapman; a sister, Ginnie Graham McCoy, and a niece, Kellye McCoy Callaway.
Left to cherish her memory are her husband, Jerry Bruce Chapman of the home; her daughters, Cari Chapman Roberts (husband, Charley) of Ardmore, OK & Jill Chapman Lawler (husband, Tony) of Eagletown; a sister, Cindy Graham Harper (husband, Mike) of Oklahoma City, OK; grandchildren, Eran Opsahl, Matthew Dragg, Kendall Lawler, & Kody Lawler; three great-grandchildren; five nephews; six nieces; and too many special friends to mention by name.
