Wanda Jean (Sneeden) Bolton

February 18, 1951 ~ July 26, 2022 (age 71)


      Wanda Jean Sneeden Bolton, of Rocky Point passed away peacefully on Monday, July 26, 2022 at the age of 71. She was born February 18, 1951 in Wilmington to Kenneth and Lillian Sneeden.

     In addition to her father Wanda was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Benny Bolton and brother, Tim Sneeden.

     Wanda is survived by her mother, Lillian V. Sneeden; children, Woody Bolton and Ginny Bolton (Dale Ritz); grandchildren, Zoe Collett and Damian Tuttle; brother, Kenneth Sneeden Jr. (Sara); sister, Cindy McNally (Stephen); nieces and nephews, Emily Brooks (Jonathon), Michael Sneeden (Rachel), Victoria Smith (Ricky) and Jeremy McNally.

     She is a member of Silver Lake Baptist Church in Wilmington, NC.  

     Wanda was a graduate of Hoggard High School and for many years worked for Springer Eubanks Oil Company.  She had many friends throughout her entire life and her grandfather, Steve Sneeden, had her on a horse before she was walking. He even had a special saddle built for her.   Wanda passed her love of horses down to her daughter.  She was a true example of what it meant to be a Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt and Friend. Her presence in our lives will be forever missed, but we find solace in knowing she is at peace and rejoicing with her Almighty Father.  

     The family will receive friends 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon Friday, July 29, 2022 at Silver Lake Baptist Church with funeral service beginning at 12:00 noon with Pastor Steve Gasque officiating.  Burial will follow at Rileys Creek Memorial Cemetery at 1:30 p.m.

    In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Wanda’s memory to Lower Cape Fear LifeCare.
