Wilma Lee Stewart

August 12, 1951 — May 18, 2021

Wilma Lee Stewart, 69, born August 12, 1951, to the late Grover and Martha Vance of Branchland, WV, finished her Christian walk and entered into her eternal rest on May 18, 2021 following a brief illness.

Proverbs chapter 31:10-31 speaks of a virtuous woman being more precious than rubies. Anyone who truly knew Wilma, knew she lived that out to the letter. Not a biological mother, yet throughout her life, she gave of herself freely to be a mother to so many in hopes they would understand the true meaning of love and through her love for them would reveal to them the love of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 50 years, at his passing, Danny Ray Stewart, her baby brother Darrin Vance, infant brother Ronnie Vance, and her brother-in-law Leroy “Jim” Ramey.

Those left to cherish her memory include two brothers, Elmer and David Vance, two sisters, Betty (Jerald) Adkins and Ethel Ramey, her in-laws of her late husband Danny, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends that she loved dearly.

Funeral Services will be held Saturday, May 22, 2021, at 11 am at McGhee- Handley Funeral Home, West Hamlin, WV. Donnie Wells will be officiating. Her body will be committed back to the earth follow the funeral service at Watson Cemetery.
