Anna Elizabeth Wind (nee Scott) was born on December 24, 1948, in Talihina, OK, to Benjamin and Mattie Scott (nee Beaver). She spent most of her growing years living at the Eufaula Indian Boarding School while attending Eufaula elementary and junior high schools afterwards, she attended Wetumka High School where she graduated in 1967. In 1968, Anna married Daniel D. Wind Jr. in Sapulpa and began a lifelong marriage which took them to Dallas, TX, for over a decade before they moved the family to Henryetta, OK. From this marriage, three sons were born: Danny, Willie, and JR. Anna spent many years as a homemaker before returning to the workforce as a mail clerk specialist for Oral Roberts University and the ORU Evangelistic Association where she was employed for almost 40 years. In her waning days, her employer, Reverend Richard Roberts, called and prayed for her as he remembered her as a long time, faithful employee.
Away from work, Anna could be found attending her children and grandchildren’s activities, watching courtroom and reality television shows, Hallmark movies, cooking shows, completing puzzles and crossword games, and playing Pac Man. She also enjoyed listening to Elvis Presley and Yanni music, but really loved listening and singing Mvskoke hymns. One of her favorite Mvskoke hymns was Hesaketvmeset Likes (God Our Creator and Preserver). In addition, Anna loved being around family, especially speaking with everyone and watching the children play games and running around the house. Anna leaves a long legacy of unconditional love, hard work, dedication, advocate for education, and a deep love for her family, friends, and the Church.
Anna Elizabeth Wind was preceded in death by her parents; her brothers Ben Scott, Frederick Scott, and Randolph Scott; her sister Amelia Brown; her niece Sheila Scott; and nephew Daryl Tiger.
