Wanda was born on January 24, 1935, in the Gum Springs Community to Sim and Mildred Williams. On December 5, 1954, she married Virgil Lee Majors at First Christian Church in Kilgore, Texas by her dear friend "Happy Ellis." Wanda was preceded in death by her husband, Virgil Majors; her parents; a brother, Raymond Williams and sister in law Barbara Williams, brother in laws Jimmy Majors and Troy Burnett; and a granddaughter, Chelsey Majors.

Wanda had a big heart; she did a lot of volunteer work, and never met a stranger. Her quick wit and sense of humor will be greatly missed. She was a very giving person and always willing to help. She was a member over 50 years at First United Methodist Church, an honorary member of the UMW, and belonged to the Henry Foster Sunday School Class. She taught kindergarten Sunday school for many years. She was a counselor at Lakeview Methodist camp and served two terms on the administration board. She was a member of the Good Shepherd Classic Care Board, the Dorcas Bible Club, and she also belonged to the Greenshire Women's Club.
Wanda worked at LeTourneau College, Longview Savings and Loan, Metropolitan Savings and Loan, and Louis Morgan Drug #4.

She was a graduate of Longview High School, attended TCU, Kilgore College, and LeTourneau College.

She is survived by her son and daughter in law, Danny and Shonda Majors of Spring, Texas; two granddaughters, Heather and Justin Mays of Katy, Texas; and Morgan and Cody Davis of Ruston, Louisiana; five great- grandsons and one great-granddaughter; sister Nelda Burnett of Tulsa, Oklahoma; sister in law, Katie Majors Hill of Longview; several nephews and nieces; and one special niece, Kathy Smith.

Donations may be made to First United Methodist Church of Longview, Texas or Asbury House.
