“I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks.”
Wanda M. Britton, age 83 of Royse City, TX passed away at Presbyterian Hospital of Rockway peacefully on January 1, 2023, lovingly surrounded by family and friends. She was born in Navarro County, TX on July 6, 1939 to the late William E. Patterson and late Fay M. (Sykes) Patterson as an only child.
Wanda loved watching birds. Hummingbirds were her favorite and had multiple feeders at any given time. She enjoyed gardening, crossword puzzles, baking, cooking, and spending time with her beloved family. Wanda graduated from Waxahachie High. On August 14, 1959, she married the love of her life, John E. Britton, and together they raised three children in their home of 52 years located in Garland, TX. In 2014, she moved to her daughter’s home in Royse City who faithfully cared for Wanda until her passing.
She is preceded in death by her husband of 55 years, John E. Britton and son, Johnny Britton, who passed away on November 11, 1972 just after his 11th birthday. She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Pamela and Jeff Whitaker, son and daughter-in-law, Chad and Kasey Britton, and her beloved grandchildren, Cynthia Britton, Brittni Whitaker and Zane Britton. She will be deeply missed by her loving family, her life-long devoted friends, and numerous extended family members who called her Mom or Gran-Gran.
