Wanda Lawler, surrounded by her family, gained her angel wings on October 3, 2022, at age 81.
The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Wanda. She had an uncanny ability to find happiness in her daily activities. Her pleasant personality was contagious to everyone she met. She was a caring sister, aunt, cousin, and friend. Even though she has been taken away from this world, her loving heart left a beacon of light for all who knew her. She was a giving, caring and selfless person who provided comfort and solace while asking little in return, often neglecting the needs of herself for the needs and well-being of her family.
Wanda graduated from Cooper High School in 1959. She worked for the County Agent in the Delta County and District Office before joining the Health & Human Services Department from which she retired after 33 years.
Wanda was preceded in death by her parents Audie & Kathryn Lawler; three brothers Forrest, Johnny, and Malcolm Lawler; one nephew Terry Hampton and one great nephew Tyler Lawler. She is survived by her brothers Gerald Lawler (Linda), Jerry Lawler (Mary), and her sisters Roxie Faulkenberry (Bobby) and Pat Hampton (Larry), along with many nephews, great nieces, great nephews, and cousins.
A private family graveside ceremony will be held at Restland Cemetery in Cunningham, Texas. Her nephews will preside as Pallbearers. Mike Faulkenberry, Larry Hampton, Jason Lawler, Steve Lawler, Gary Strickland, and Scotty Braswell.
