Janice Marie "Wynema" Batson entered heaven’s gate on September 24, 2021. She stood strong in her faith and loved her children and grandchildren with all her heart. She was born in Guthrie, OK on September 15, 1945, to the late John and Louise Whitehorn.
Wynema grew up in Sulphur, OK. Later in life, she made the move with her mother to Berkeley Springs, WV, where she graduated high school in 1963. She married Joe McCoy of Berkeley Springs, on September 22, 1963. From this marriage was born Tiffany and Nate McCoy. After divorcing Joe, Wynema moved back to Sulphur, meeting her soul mate, Jerry "Joe" Batson.

Wynema moved to Sanger, TX in 1996, where she and her family remained for 21 years. She moved to Thackerville, OK in 2016, living life to the fullest, spending time with her kids and grandchildren.
