Obituary

Tamela (Tami) Joyce Raper

In remembrance of a full life, well lived and full of love we announce the passing of Tamela

(Tami) Joyce Raper (March 20, 1964 -August 18, 2021). Tami was born to LeRoy Fox and

Carolyn Fox on March 20, 1964. Early in life she lived in Gotebo and graduated from Gotebo

High School. She attended Southwestern State University (Weatherford, OK) for two years.

Tami married Greg Raper on June 8, 1985 and had two sons, Justin Raper of Yukon and Cade

Raper of Edmond. Tami became a proud KiKi on July 16, 2019 to Berkley Raper, daughter of

Justin and Jamie Raper.

Tami lived life to the fullest, always thinking of what she could do to help her family and others.

She was a soulmate, mother, daughter-in-law, KiKi, sister, daughter (Pal), niece and good

friend. Tami's many talents and gifts could be seen in the varied roles in life she lived. Tami was

a devoted wife and mother, loving daughter and sister, she worked in public schools, she was a

Vision Care Nurse, child caregiver, property manager, caregiver for her mother and child

caregiver for her grand-daughter Berkley. The theme song for Tami and Greg’s wedding was

Chicago’s “You're the Inspiration”. It was very evident in their relationship to see that they were

clearly the meaning and inspiration to each other. Her passion for her family could always be

seen no matter what circumstance should arise. Tami’s personal influence and love will be

missed and her inspiring spirit will live on with those she loved so much.

Tami is survived by her immediate family, husband Greg Raper, son Justin and his wife Jamie

with granddaughter Berkley Raper, son Cade Raper, mother-in law Jackie Raper, brother-in-law

Scott Raper and wife Lori, brother-in-law Roger Raper, sister-in-law Misty Denton, aunt-in law

Kittie Costilow, father (Pal) LeRoy Fox and his wife Deanna, brother Mike Fox and wife
