Wanda Lee Virginia Gardner, 89, of Little Rock, Arkansas, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, March 7, 2021.
She was born July 14, 1931, in England, Arkansas to John Chester and Martha Katherine “Katie” Thorn Frazier.
She grew up in England and Humnoke, Arkansas. She retired from Kellwood after 23 years as a supervisor at the Robe Plant.
Mom always had a servant’s heart. She loved to cook and if you were blessed to eat at her table, you know what I mean. She was a very talented seamstress. Growing up Connie and I enjoyed the work of her hands. When Granddaughters came along, she loved sewing for them. She loved going to Branson with family and friends. In her later years she loved to read. More than anything else, she loved Jesus and she showed it every day in the things she did and said.
She was a member of Parkway Place Baptist Church.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Joe Gardner, whom she married September 15, 1973, in Little Rock; her parents; brothers, Thurman “Dean” Frazier, Eugene Frazier, J.M. Frazier; sisters, Gladys Gates, Geneva Gates, Willie Mae Campbell, Della Bailey, twin infant daughters, and son-in-law Frank Harrison.
She is survived by her children, Debbie (Jerrell) Dortch, Connie Harrison, Randy (Regina) Grimmett, and Jeff (Melissa) Grimmett. Her grandchildren that she loved with all her heart, Jarrod (Caira) Dortch, J Dortch, Katie (Weston) Weidenbenner, Blake (Tara) Grimmett, Chase (Haley) Grimmett, Kyle Grimmett, Beth Grimmett, and Cassidy Grimmett. She had six great-grandchildren, Addisyn Preslee Dortch, Evyn Kelly Dortch, Dawson Bryant Chapman, Audrey Brooke Grimmett, Baylor Chase Grimmett, Boston Lane Grimmett, one brother J. C. Frazier. She is also survived by a host of family and friends.

Dear Grimmett Family,
I am so sorry to hear of Wanda's passing and I hold you all in my thoughts and prayers. There was nothing that woman couldn't cook and on our birthdays or holidays we always put our request for our favorite. I have a lot of her recipes and the last time I talked to her I told I would come by and get her Christmas pickles & haystack recipe but I never did. Wanda loved her family dearly and looked forward to holidays & family reunions. I was her daughter in law for 20 years and I very proud to say she was a great mother in law. We used to call her Mrs. Kodak because she always had a camera in her hands so family look at those many pictures and remember how much she loved you all.

Michael, Jennifer, Riley, Justin and Andrew

Wanda meant so much to our young family in so many ways. She took care of my son Brandon a lot while me and his mom were working, as did her daughter Connie. She was also mother-in-law to my late best friend, Connie's husband, Frank Harrison. Which was kind of fun to watch those two go at it. Through her we became friends with her whole family. She will be missed. My condolences to her family and friends.
