Wanda Pritchett McCarty

September 24, 1956 - April 20, 2023

Wanda Pritchett McCarty, 66, of Rustburg went to be with the Lord on Thursday, April 20, 2023. She retired from J Crew.

Wanda loved many things, especially her family. She was crazy about her grandchildren. She loved to entertain and sing karaoke. Just hand her a mic and enjoy the show. She loved having big family gatherings. She was a social butterfly. If you were lucky enough to have her as your friend, you knew you had a friend for life. She was very generous and always willing to lend a hand.

Wanda was a great person and was loved by many. Rest in peace Wanda! You will never be forgotten.
