Obituary

Wanda Ricketson Asbury went to be with the Lord on January 21, 2020. Wanda was born and
grew up in Leavenworth, Kansas. She met her husband, Francis Asbury, in grade school, but it
was not until they attended Kansas State University that they began to date. Since she had
always lived in a military community, her dream was to become a military wife and that she did!
She and her husband were married 66 years and had 4 beautiful children, Danny (Martina),
Cindy, Tammy (Mark), and Marcy, who she loved dearly. She also had 6 grandchildren and 4
great-grandchildren and one on the way.

Everyone who knew Wanda knew she loved life, having fun and loved her Heavenly Father.
She was always so understanding and supportive of her husband and knew it was a team effort.
She was caring, kind and always doing for others.

After retirement from the Air Force, they spent 10 years overseas in Seoul, Korea, and Belgium
before they finally settled down in Destin, Florida. It was there that she spent a lot of her free
time golfing. Then they decided to move to Texas and finally to the Air Force Village in San
Antonio where she spent her last 7 years. She made many friends, enjoyed folding bulletins for
the chapel, playing bridge and being part of the Gadabout group. Her favorite song is, My
Tribute- To God Be The Glory" by Andre Crouch.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Robert and Allene Ricketson, her two brothers, Bob and Don and her grandson Byron Beethe.
She will be put to rest at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery.
