Obituary- Wanda Dean Maxell (1932-2020)


Wanda Dean Maxell, age 87 of Cross Creek, Arkansas, went to be with her Lord and Savior on February 25, 2020. 

She was a member of the Winfield Baptist Church, a homemaker who diligently worked beside her husband running their ranch, and retired from the Waldron Public School.  Her greatest love, besides the love she had for her Lord and her family, was her love of gardening.  You could always find her working in her garden or her flowerbeds.

She was preceded in death by her husband and childhood sweetheart, RC “Bo” Maxell, and her parents, Oscar and Elida Stringer. 

Wanda was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother to her family who will miss her tremendously.  She is survived by her two daughters, Connie Sue Maxell of Waldron and Melitta Maxell McCorkle of Greenwood, Arkansas; two grandchildren, Elizabeth Dawn McCorkle of Greenwood, Arkansas and Christopher Dan McCorkle and wife Olivia of Brownsville, Tennessee and two great-grandchildren, Declan Christopher McCorkle and Eden Grace McCorkle.
