Wanda M. Britton

July 6, 1939 –
 January 1, 2023


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. 

Visitation will be held on Saturday, January 14, 2023 from 1:00 PM until time of funeral service at 2:00 PM with Pastor Jasen “J-Bo” Thomas from Tyler, TX, officiating at North Dallas Funeral Home, 2710 Valley View Ln, Dallas, TX 75234.

    Pam, sorry for loss of your Mom.
    Don’t know if you remember when we were all neighbors in the circle in Garland?
    That’s been many years ago.
    All you kids had so much fun in those days.
    Sorry I can’t be at Wanda’s memorial service but I will sure keep you, Chad and families in my prayers.
    Oneday we might all see you again
    God Bless You

    Love my Aunt Wanda so much! Thought a lot about going to see her and Pam but kept putting it off. Wish I had just taken the time to go and see her. You never know when your day will come. If you have a loved one that you have not seen in a while, take the time to go and see them. Love and prayers to Pam, Chad and the entire family. Love you all so much!!

    Mama Wanda was truly one of a kind. Beautiful and sweet, thoughtful and kind she was the kind of lady who was an inspiration to many. Pam I know you will miss your mother so deeply. You were her beautiful little girl, no matter how old you were, and I have no doubt that her final years here on this earth were joyous and comfortable surrounded with family and all the care and love that only you could, and did give her. I was always in awe of the close relationship you both shared and no matter who else was around she always spoke of how special you were to her. She was so proud of you. I know you are lost and hurting right now but I promise the time you spent caring for her in these past years will sooth your soul and turn the hurt into blessed memories of the time you shared together. You are in my heart and in my prayers. I am always here for you. I love you my friend.

    Mama Wanda was certainly one of a kind. Everyone she came to know loved her because she had a gentleness and kindness that was no less then infectious. I am so sorry for the loss your family is going through when she took leave of this world entering into the next to take her place beside her beloved John and Johnny. You all have another angel to watch over you.
    Pam I know how hard this has been on you. Not only because of the special bond between you as mother and daughter, but also because you became her primary caregiver and closest family member in these last years of her life. No one could ever take that place from you, it was never a place that could’ve been earned, but was yours by birthright. Your mom loved you so much and no matter how old you became, you always remained her little girl. I know she knew how special she was to you because you made her a priority in your life no matter what she went through during those years. You were her constant refuge and she sure knew it. I know you feel lost right now, it is always hard to lose our loved ones, but when you care for them, it leaves a huge hole in your everyday life. It will get better, I promise. The hurt will heal over time and you will look back on these years as some of the most sweet and fulfilling times of your life. God blessed you both by having the options to live her life out together. Many prayers for you, Jeff, Brittni, Chad, and the family as you heal and move on in your lives. May God grant you peace and strength.
    Love always,

Leave A Condolence

"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."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location. They help to make the process as easy and comforting in my opinion as to be expected, I would recommend their service to anyone. Thank You to everyone who helped me and my family. Sincerely,"

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
