New Albany – On June 16, 2022, Wanda Jean Harmon Grubbs was welcomed with open arms by her Lord and Savior. She was born March 2, 1934 to Lagrone and Carrie E. Harmon. She graduated from Center High School and then studied at Northeast MS Junior College where she majored in journalism and wrote and named the Beacon News Paper.
She then studied and obtained her bachelors degree in education and journalism at MS State College for Women in Columbus. After teaching school, she later worked at MS Chemical Corp. in New Albany as office manager and retired from there after 31 years of service.
An avid gardener, she loved working in her yard, watching her birds and growing beautiful flowers. Crocheting was a favorite pastime as she would enjoy making projects and sharing her handiwork with others. She had a determining spirit and a wonderful sense of humor.
Her most beloved joys in life were times spent with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She was a member of New Albany Presbyterian Church.
She is survived by two daughters, Susan Lofton (Steven) and Holly Tidwell (Paul); a daughter-in-law, Debbie Hall; eight grandchildren, Ben Hall (Christy), Amber Pickens (Jeran), Whitney Harris (Jaco), Reid Hall, Carson Hall, Matthew Tidwell, Jacob Tidwell and Luke Tidwell; four great grandchildren, Piper Hall, Cari Etta Pickens, Colby Pickens, and Bowen Pickens
She was preceded in death by her parents and a beloved son, Robert “Bobby” Hall.
