Ronda Gale Tidwell Jopling, born October 22nd, 1942, in her grandparents farm house east of Broken Arrow. Death: February 20, 2010, from complications of lung cancer. She was reborn a Christian in 1955, in Oakhurst Baptist Church and baptized in Carbondale at Opportunity Heights Baptist Church. During her elementary and grade school years she spent in Chandler CK spending much of her time exploring the hill and creeks with her brother, Larry. She always talked of these times as some of the most wonderful days of her life and this sibling bond and memories lasted her a life time. When not exploring the area she enjoyed many a summer day with her grandparents helping out on their small acreage East of Chandler. During her teenage years her family relocated back to the Tulsa area where she attended school at Clinton Junior High and Webster High School both in Redfork, OK. Though she did not graduate from Webster she always had the dream to go back and get her high school diploma. This was realized when she turned her dream into reality by returning to the classroom at the age of 58, to earn her GED diploma. This was just one example of her determination that she carried throughout her life. She settled in the Claremore and Tulsa communities throughout the remainder of her life. She was blessed with 3 children and saw her family grow by an additional 3 grandchildren whom she loved dearly. She is preceded in death by: mother: Lola May Tidwell, father: Rex Lee Tidwell, sister: Marsha Lea Grable. Survived by: daughter and son-in-law: Tracy and Robin Henley of Kansas City, KS; sons: Kenton and Brandon Jopling of Tulsa, OK; grandchildren: Hunter Jopling of Verdigris, OK, Tara Johnson of Kansas City, KS, Josh Johnson of Kansas City, KS; sisters: Anita Harp, Lisa Short, Sandy VanGilder; brothers: Larry and Roger Tidwell. She is also survived by some very special cousins who truly meant so much to her during her life and especially during her illness. She developed a very close bond with them during their childhood and that continued throughout her life. She and her family would also like to thank a very special friend who has been there with encouragement and support throughout all her health issues. The surviving children can never thank June Robison enough for all she has done for their mom. We would also like to thank Clarehouse for all the support and care in her final days. This facility was a blessing. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Clarehouse, or Victory Christian Dream Center, or charity of choice. Visitation will be held for friends and family from 9-11 am, on Tuesday, February 23rd with graveside service at 2:00 pm, at Oak Park Cemetery in Chandler OK. Moore's Eastlawn Chapel.
