Wanda was a member of Shiloh Baptist Church.
Wanda was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mama and nanny. She had a great love for all of her grandchildren, including numerous nieces and nephews. Her favorite pastimes included flowers, a passion for reading, old cars and sewing Raggedy Ann dolls. Let’s not forget her Coca Cola collection, marbles and her crossword puzzles. A weakness for lottery tickets, sweet tea, root beer and milkshakes. She loved going Saturday morning thrift shopping with her grandkids. Her favorite vacation memories are held in the mountains. If you ever met our Nanny you quickly knew her as she never met a stranger. Wanda delt with her lengthy illness with grace and rarely ever had a complaint. Even though she had great difficulty speaking she communicated well with a pencil! Always kind and thoughtful of others, Wanda was a joy to know. She is now healed and resides in her heavenly home.
The family will receive friends at 10:00 a.m. Saturday, September 11, 2021 at Shiloh Baptist Church with the funeral service beginning at 11:00 a.m. in the church sanctuary. The Rev. Gardner Eakins will conduct the service.
