Funeral services for Wanda Varnado Haire, 63, of Union Church, were
conducted on Monday, July 31, 2023 from Union Church Baptist Church.
Interment followed at Union Church Cemetery.
Born in Hazlehurst on Feb. 15, 1960 to David Ray Varnado, Jr., and
Bertha Lenore Greer Varnado, she was a retired Store Manager and
Bookkeeper, working at Varnado's Grocery from 1977-2004.
She loved to travel and started several collections from those travels,
including Coca Cola memorabilia, Christmas ornaments and an assortment
of dishes. Years ago, she enjoyed helping with her daughter's
impressive Beanie Babies collection and, more recently, her
granddaughter's whimsical Christmas houses collection.
Photography was an important hobby for her. She thoroughly enjoyed
taking pictures of family and friends and sharing them with everyone.
Above and beyond her hobbies was her wholehearted love for her children
and grandchildren, as well as her love and concern for helping others
with their needs.

be greatly missed by all those lives she touched.
