Wanda Kay Eades, 67, passed on to her heavenly home on Feb. 16, 2017. She was born April 2, 1949, to the late Jack and Waunita Chaney.
Kay was a stay-at-home mammaw, but in her early years, she was a CNA at Turtle Creek/Anderson Healthcare and a grill cook. She belonged to Red Men Lodge in Anderson before they closed.
Kay loved to sing, go fishing, draw, paint beautiful pictures and cook for her family, friends and neighbors.

Left to cherish Kay's memory are daughters, Waunita "Shelly" (Stephen Thompson) Murphy, Christina (Daniel) Sexton, Roxzanne West; sisters, Margaret "Rocky" (Tom) Kollros, Jackie (Dan) Ellingwood, Terry (Lou) Howard; grandchildren, Destiny (Rosman) Bautista, Illicia "Gabby" (Edy Ortiz) Murphy, Reina Lopez, Quilina Sexton, Christian Gonzalez, Tony Ruiz; great-grandsons, Camilo, Santiago, Isaiah; nieces and nephews, Brandy (Andy) Funkhouser, William (Alisha) Howard, Jon (Coty) Howard, Missy (Kevin O'Bryant) Ellingwood, Shane (Katie) Ellingwood, Sheila Ellingwood, Jack (Bridget Passmore) Ellingwood; several great- and great-great-nieces and nephews; many friends; extended family; and her sweet cat, Sissy.
Services are at 3 p.m. Thursday at Legacy Cremation & Funeral Services with Pastor Richard Gregg presiding and visitation two hours prior.
Kay's favorite saying was, "Variety is the spice of life." She was a loving, giving lady who gave from her heart and expected nothing in return, except maybe a phone call or a Ricker's pop.
