MCGHEE, WANNA WEBSTER – age 86 went home to be the Lord June 28, 2008. She was preceded to a happier place by her one and only love and husband, Robert M. McGhee, Jr., son, Terrance C. McGhee and beautiful wife Alisa. She leaves to miss her yeast breads, cakes and cookies, her son Timothy Webster McGhee and sweet wife; grandchildren, Terry Robert, Barry Todd, Heather Wilson of Australia, Tim McGhee II; five great grandchildren and many nieces, nephews and dear friends.

Jesus Christ cast his bright sunlight of salvation on her while she was reading Pilgrims Progress in her teen years. In her heart, she did not belong to any one church although she attended many. She knew she could pray and give thanks at anytime, anywhere. Her earthly activities included teaching a Sunday School Class, doing volunteer work for the Y.W.C.A., Boys Club, Kingswood School and writing poetry for P.T.A. and church programs. She also was a regular contributor in Letters to the Editor in the Knoxville News Sentinel. She wrote and printed her own Favorite Recipes Cookbook. Each morning in her prayers, she asked God if there was something she should do for someone, to put it directly before her, so at the end of each day she wouldn’t have to think why she didn’t do that for that person. Some of her favorite things were baking, sewing and rocking babies. She liked antiques and collecting dolls and trivets. Her favorite things to take to ill friends in the hospital were homemade cookies and small cloth drawstring bags of quarters. She was a stay at home mom while her sons were young, then worked and retired from T.V.A. at the age of 60. She enjoyed many years of baking and teaching others to bake during retirement. She has gone where there will be many flowers, so she requested any memorials be made to Hopewell United Methodist Church, c/o Alice M. Mitchell, 9335 Millertown Pike, Mascot, Tennessee, 37806. Family and friends will meet 10:45 am Tuesday at Eastview Memorial Gardens for a graveside service at 11 am with Rev. Melbert Lee, Sr. officiating. Family will receive friends 6 to 8 pm Monday at Mynatt Funeral Home Fountain City.
