Obituary of Wanda F. Morris
Wanda F. Wilson Morris, of Soddy-Daisy, Tennessee passed away May 9, 2019, at her residence.
Wanda was a graduate of Soddy-Daisy High School Class of 1953, where she was captain of the girls’ basketball team and treasurer of the senior class. Wanda worked 16 years for Interstate Life Insurance Company in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where she played basketball and softball. She retired from A-1 North American Van Lines.
Wanda was preceded in death by her devoted husband, Gene Morris; father and mother, Houston and Mary Ruth (Skiles) Wilson; and brothers Tom, Ray, Don, and Leslie Wilson. Also, sister-in-law, Shirley Wilson; and brother-in-law Ed Henderson.
