WANDA ANGLEE BURNS
The beautiful loving soul of Wanda Anglee Burns, 80, gained her heavenly wings and was guided to the golden gates of heaven with her Lord and Savior by her side on Sunday, September 5, 2021. Wanda was a resident of the Coppinger Cove area in Sequatchie, TN where she and her late husband, William H. Burns, Jr. lived and raised their three daughters and son. She was born on September 29, 1940 to the late James and Tempa Taylor Hickman in Lenoir City, TN. Wanda had been employed with the Jasper Dairy Bar as a cook and server before retiring.
Wanda was a wife and mother who loved her family with a fierce and generous heart. She was quick to laugh and always ready to smile or give words of encouragement.
