Ashley Sloan Wesberry

Funeral services for Ashley Sloan Wesberry will be held at 2 p.m., Wednesday, July 3, 2019, at the First Baptist Church in Davis, with Bishop Kelvin Copeland officiating. Interment will follow at the Maxwell Cemetery in Oil Center, Okla.

Ashley was born Dec 21, 1989, in Ada, Okla. to Roy Lynn and Rhonda Darlene (Reamy) Wesberry. She died Friday, June 28, 2018, north of Sulphur, from injuries sustained in an automobile accident. Ashley was 29 years, 6 months and 7 days old. She and Chantz Mark Deen were married on July 12, 2015, in Valley View, Texas.

Ashley and her family moved to Davis in 1996. She graduated from Davis High School, Class of 2009. While in high school, she attended Southern Oklahoma Technology Center, where she studied phlebotomy. After high school she spent several years working for Care Affiliates as a phlebotomist. Most recently, Ashley was working for Courtesy Loans in Sulphur.

Ashley was always wearing a bright smile on her face. Her whole goal in life was to make others laugh and she achieved that goal on a daily basis. She was always emphatic about her appearance. Her hair and makeup always had to be perfect. Ashley loved her family, especially, her two boys. She loved her sons with all of her heart and wanted only the best for them. She was an avid fan of Reba McEntire. Although she was not blessed with a beautiful singing voice, it never stopped her from belting out a Reba song; once again making those around her laugh.

Those that knew Ashley best, know that eating and shopping were two of her most favorite hobbies. Although she was petite in size, the girl could out eat most grown men; and shopping, well, she limited herself to shopping only on days that ended with a “Y”.
Ashley was a baptized member of the Bethel Assembly of God Church in Ardmore.

Survivors include her husband, Chantz Deen; two sons, Camdyn and Rylen; step children, Haleigh, Karley, Peyton and Daxx; parents, Roy and Rhonda Wesberry of Davis; maternal grandmother, Patsy Reamy of Davis; two sisters, Amber Pickelsimer and husband Deron of Healdton and Amy Walker of Davis; one brother, Jared Wesberry and wife Heather of Davis; uncles, James Reamy and Chris Reamy; aunt, Shelley Bridgeman; in-laws, Mark and Janie Deen; as well as several nieces and nephews, whom she loved dearly.

Ashley was preceded in death by her maternal grandfather, Jerry Reamy; and her paternal grandparents, James and Ruth Wesberry.

Serving as pallbearers will be Jared Wesberry, Caleb Pickelsimer, Dylan Pickelsimer, Dalton Gillihan, Colton Pickelsimer and Brecken Deen. Honorary bearers will be Roy Wesberry, Waylon Reamy, Payton Wesberry, Kent Harris and Clayton Pickelsimer.

Online condolences may be offered at halesfuneralhomes.com.

Services are entrusted to HALE’S FUNERAL HOME, DAVIS, OK.

OETA Celebrates America’s Birthday with

A Capitol Fourth



Oklahoma City, OK — On July 4, the Oklahoma Educational Television Authority (OETA) celebrates our nation’s 243rd birthday with the longest running live Independence Day TV tradition, A Capitol Fourth.



A Capitol Fourth continues its 39-year run of celebrating our nation’s independence at 7 p.m., with a special rebroadcast at 9 p.m.



Broadcast live from the West Lawn of the United States Capitol building and hosted by two-time Emmy Award-nominated actor and producer John Stamos (Fuller House, ER), this year’s celebration boasts an all-star cast.



This year’s line-up features: Grammy Award-winning music legend Carole King; platinum-selling singer-songwriter Vanessa Carlton; Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Colbie Caillat; five-time Grammy-Award-winning Gospel vocalist Yolanda Adams; 2019 American Idol winner Laine Hardy and winner of this year’s The Voice, Maelyn Jarmon.



This year’s concert will also feature a special performance by the Sesame Street Muppets, including Big Bird, Abby Cadabby, Elmo, Grover and Bert & Ernie.



In addition, the concert will pay tribute to our men and women in uniform with a special performance by music rehabilitation program, the MusiCorps Wounded Warriors Band.



Finally, no July 4th event would be complete without a fireworks display over our nation’s iconic skyline with a rousing rendition of Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture” accompanied by live cannon fire from the United States Presidential Salute Battery.



Fire up the grill and pour the lemonade because OETA is bringing the celebration to you!

GasBuddy Media Website

(July 1, 2019) - Oklahoma gas prices have risen 3.7 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.40/g today, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 2,294 stations. Gas prices in Oklahoma are 15.5 cents per gallon lower than a month ago, yet stand 16.8 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

According to GasBuddy price reports, the cheapest station in Oklahoma is priced at $2.17/g today while the most expensive is $2.97/g, a difference of 80.0 cents per gallon. The lowest price in the state today is $2.17/g while the highest is $2.97/g, a difference of 80.0 cents per gallon. The cheapest price in the entire country today stands at $1.97/g while the most expensive is $4.99/g, a difference of $3.02/g.

The national average price of gasoline has risen 4.6 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $2.71/g today. The national average is down 10.5 cents per gallon from a month ago, yet stands 13.8 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.

Historical gasoline prices in Oklahoma and the national average going back a decade:
July 1, 2018: $2.57/g (U.S. Average: $2.84/g)
July 1, 2017: $1.95/g (U.S. Average: $2.23/g)
July 1, 2016: $2.02/g (U.S. Average: $2.27/g)
July 1, 2015: $2.52/g (U.S. Average: $2.76/g)
July 1, 2014: $3.48/g (U.S. Average: $3.67/g)
July 1, 2013: $3.28/g (U.S. Average: $3.48/g)
July 1, 2012: $3.22/g (U.S. Average: $3.32/g)
July 1, 2011: $3.40/g (U.S. Average: $3.55/g)
July 1, 2010: $2.64/g (U.S. Average: $2.74/g)
July 1, 2009: $2.42/g (U.S. Average: $2.61/g)

Neighboring areas and their current gas prices:
Oklahoma City- $2.33/g, up 8.2 cents per gallon from last week's $2.25/g.
Tulsa- $2.37/g, up 17.2 cents per gallon from last week's $2.20/g.
Amarillo- $2.30/g, up 3.8 cents per gallon from last week's $2.26/g.

"For the first time in nearly two months, the nation's average price of gasoline has seen a weekly increase. Of course, most motorists suspected prices would rise ahead of July 4, but it's not the holiday that should be pointed at. Motorists can blame escalating tensions between the U.S. and Iran for higher oil prices, declining inventories and even a potential U.S./China trade deal," said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. "While gas prices this July 4 are nearly guaranteed to be slightly under last year's level, we will continue to close that gap as prices are likely to continue rising, especially as several states slapped those traveling for the holiday with higher gasoline taxes just hours ago. The second half of the summer may end up being pricier than the first half, especially if the U.S. and China can get basically any trade deal in place and/or tensions continue to remain high between the U.S. and Iran. And not to forget hurricane season's peak in the second half, it may get ugly at the pump."
