Wanda J. (Haywood) Fietz, 86, passed away after a brief illness in Oklahoma City, OK on April 19, 2012. A life-long Oklahoman, she was born on December 4, 1925 in Oklahoma City to Sadie and Ted Haywood, Sr. She attended Oklahoma City University. In 1946 she married photographer Tom Killian and they had one daughter, Judy.
After Tom's death, she met Crayton Fietz and they were married in 1956. They moved to Lawton, OK and raised a family of five children, Judy, Carolyn, Mary, Michael and John. They owned a successful H&R Block franchise for many years. Wanda truly enjoyed the income tax preparation business. She was extremely knowledgeable and well-respected in her field, maintaining her enrolled agent status through the Treasury Department.
After Crayton passed away in 1983, she eventually sold the business and moved back to OKC to live with her mother and oldest daughter. Together they had many an adventure. She continued to work in the tax business with her oldest son Michael, even working the day before her passing.
Friends and family will remember her for her sharp mind, love of reading and respect for tradition. But her greatest joy was her family. She loved her children dearly. She took great pride in their accomplishments and those of her eight grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her brother Ted Haywood Jr; husband Crayton and daughter Judy. Wanda is survived by her loving children: daughter Carolyn Gallant (Ken) of Oklahoma City and grandchildren Rachel and Matthew; daughter Mary Fietz (Michael Nord) of Phoenix, AZ and grandson Alex; son Michael Fietz (Sue) of Miami, OK and grandchildren Amanda and Ricky; and son John Fietz (Jill) of Coppell, TX and granddaughters Katelyn, Lauren and Megan.
