On March 2, 2020, Wanda Hale passed away at the age of 92.


Wanda was born Aug. 27, 1927 in Denison, Texas, to Archie Grantland and Lula Wallace. She completed high school in Denison. She provided healthcare to many people for over 50 years.

Our “Meme” had a heart of gold, never meeting a stranger and helping anyone in need. Her most favorite thing to do was watch wrestling. She loved all her grandchildren so much. We’re going to miss her so very much but take comfort knowing that she’s rejoicing in Heaven with her children.


She is survived by her grandchildren Timmy Babbitt and wife, Linda; Tracy Agee; Shane Blackurn and wife, Wendy; Renee Gibby and husband, Timmy; Dallas Hale and wife, Christine; Tish Shrum; and Lisa Hamilton; several great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.
