Wanda Kay Yarbrough

Wanda Kay Yarbrough, 68, of Monticello, passed from this life, Sunday, May 20, 2018, at Lawrence County Hospital. She was born June 12, 1949.
Family and friends will remember Wanda as a wonderful daughter, mother, sister, nanny and friend. She was very determined and driven in anything she set her mind to do. She had many jobs that she loved. She was a truck driver who could drive and back a truck better than any man. She taught herself to do ceramics and worked at that for many years. She worked in home health, loving and caring for her patients, giving them the kindness, dignity and respect that every patient should have. But the greatest job she ever had and loved the most was being a mother and grandmother. She was a grandmother of six children, whom she loved and spoiled. Wanda was not only a mother to her children but to many others. She will be deeply missed by many here on earth.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Mary Alice Calvert, and father, Jim Cooper; her sister, Debbie Cooper, and her son, John Edward Berry Jr.
She is survived by her brothers, Glenn Calvert of Dallas, Texas; Jerry Calvert of Prentiss and James Cooper of Del Rio, Texas; her sister, Sandra Cooper of Goss; her daughters, Anita Hotard of Monticello and Nina Griffith of Monticello and her six grandchildren, Britney Guess, Samantha Hotard, Blake Berry, Brandy Berry, Bella Griffith and Maston Griffith.
