Wanda Faye Bailey (Mammaw), 83, of Griffithville, AR departed this life June 25, 2012. She was born March 26, 1929 to the late Jim and Carrah Belle Harris of Griffithville. She was preceded in death by her son Billy Collins and is survived by her husband, Donald Bailey; three children Carmon Collins (Gail), Donna Conder (John), and Jimmy Collins (Regina); three grandchildren Leah Henry (Britt), Chad Conder, and Kristin Collins; two great-grandchildren Hope and Jude Henry; as well as many other relatives and friends.
Wanda was the matriarch of her family, a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and a best friend. She enjoyed spending her time with her husband and family. She was compassionate, yet strong willed, and always willing to help others with a sympathetic ear or sharing a kind word. Her sensibility and soft spoken manner was always a comfort during difficult times. As Wanda has left this earth behind, her spirit, strength, and her love will be with each of us in our hearts and minds forever.
As each of us in our own time will move from this world to the next, our love for each other is constant and eternal; it carries on within each person’s heart and lives we have touched. This has never been more prevalent than with Wanda. She will be loved and missed each and every day.
Our family would like to thank each of you for all of the love and support you have shown and given throughout this difficult time. Wanda’s kind heart and gentle spirit may be absent from our sight but will live on in each of us forever.
A visitation will be held from 6:00 to 8:00 P.M. Wednesday, June 27, 2012 at Roller-Daniel Funeral Home. Services will be 11:00 A.M. Thursday at the funeral home chapel. Interment will follow at Dogwood Cemetery in Griffithville. For online guestbook, www.rollerfuneralhomes.com.
