Wanda Whitten

JEROME — Wanda Lynn Whitten, age 67 of Jerome, passed away on April 23, 2014 following a 10-year battle with brain tumors.

She is survived by her husband, E.L Whitten of Jerome; her son and daughter-in-law, Mike and Mary Whitten of Greenwood; her mother, Rosie Bailey of Pine Bluff; her brother and sister, Ray Breckenridge of Pine Bluff and Jean Armitage of Sheridan; and many other family members who loved her.

One brother, Clyde Bailey, precedes her in death. She embraced life to the fullest, never met a stranger and touched the lives of many. She was an avid collector of cookbooks and had a passion for cooking, sewing, quilting and painting but nothing surpassed her love of family.

Memorial donations may be made to the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences-Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute for brain tumor research, 4301 W. Markham St., #716, Little Rock, AR 72205. No service will be held. Arrangements by Roselawn Funeral Service and Crematory in Pine Bluff. Online guestbook at www.griffinfuneralservice.net.
