Wanda Lee Sexton, 92, of Saffell, departed this life Tuesday, March 16, 2021, at her home.

She was born Sept. 8, 1928. The love of sewing and quilting was a large part of her life. She made several quilts for all her family. She loved family and knew exactly how everyone was related to each other. She liked to sit and talk about the old days and her family loved to hear her tell those stories. Wanda Lee had made peace with the Lord, and her family watched as God transformed her into an even sweeter and more loving lady. She will be missed by her family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; a daughter, a grandson; a brother; and a sister.

She is survived by her daughters, Virginia Bradley of Swifton, Dorothy Reed of Strawberry, and Leona Polston of Saffell; son, Tony Huskey of Evening Shade; brother, George Herring of Strawberry; 14 grandchildren; several great-grandchildren; several great-great-grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews and friends.

Visitation was Monday, March 22, from 1-2 p.m. at Mount Harmony Free Will Baptist Church in Saffell. Funeral was at 2 p.m. at the church with Jimmy Polston and Greg Tucker officiating. Interment was in Lincoln-Ward Cemetery under direction of House-Gregg Funeral Home of Walnut Ridge and Lynn.
