Dara Michelle Wingate
Dara Michelle Wingate of Okemah, Oklahoma, passed away on November 16, 2020 at the age of 36. She was born Dara Michelle Geyer on October 3, 1984 in Shawnee. She was the daughter of Eldon L. Geyer and Vickie V. (Harris) Sexton. Dara grew up in Prague and was a graduate of Prague High School.
Dara married Brandon Wingate and the two made their home in Okemah. The couple had three children and one granddaughter. Dara was a loving wife and devoted mother. She was very active in everything they did. She was heavily involved with all of the little league sports her kids were involved in and was a regular volunteer for popcorn and pickle days at their school. She was also a dedicated member of the Okemah UPC Church.
Dara will be remembered for her beautiful smile, her love and dedication to her children and her sometimes-spastic personality. She loved the country and everything about it. You would often find her outdoors or listening to her favorite music while cruising the dirt roads. For such a little person she loved big and lived big.
