Wanda Wright Chappell

Wanda Wright Chappell, age 79, resident of the Fisherville Community, and wife of Ben Chappell, passed away at her home on Saturday, April 11, 2020.

Wanda was born May 25, 1940, in Grimsley, Tenn., the daughter of the late Ann Ramsey Wright Herrington and Joe Herrington. She joyfully married Ben Chappell on Aug. 14, 1960. This year would have been their 60 year anniversary, one very few people are blessed to reach.

The family would love to invite you to celebrate, with us, the life of Wanda Chappell, a godly Proverbs 31 woman. She went to be with the Lord on April 11, 2020, the day before Easter. What a wonderful way to welcome in this time of celebration. Her precious life has left countless memories with family, friends and even some who had not known her before. Her gift of mercy drew people to her, whether it was teaching children God’s scripture through Bible sword drills, women’s Bible studies, standing up for the unborn babies and their moms, or just reaching out to those who could be comforted by God’s love. She will be dearly missed, but we will rejoice with her again, as we join her in Heaven, giving God honor and praise.
