Wanda Sue Sweeney died at Landmark Nursing and Rehab in Booneville, MS on Wednesday, November 18, 2020.
Wanda was born to Turner and Nellie Sue Rummage Sweeney on July 31, 1948. She graduated from Booneville High School with the class of 1966. She attended Northeast Mississippi Community College and graduated from Mississippi State University.
Wanda loved children and had a twenty year career as an elementary school teacher. Problems with rheumatoid arthritis cut that career short, however.

Wanda liked to travel. She recalled with fond memories a special trip to California to visit her cousin, Jerry Tennison, and his family.
She is survived by her caregivers, Jim and Jeanita Estes of Booneville and several cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents, Turner and Nellie Sue Sweeney.
